Despite a Set of Beast RBs, The Dominator Isn't Going to Scare Anyone

Draft Summary

With the fourth overall selection, The Dominator was in an ideal position to build a strong team. So much for that. They are projected to finish sixth in BNFL League with a 7-7-0 (1,951) record. If they still hope to be a playoff-caliber team, they may want to invest in a psychic or a magic eight ball to help out with the "tough" decisions this year. They loaded up on ball carriers early, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs Adrian Peterson (first round), DeMarco Murray (second round), and Reggie Bush (fifth round). These players will be heavily relied upon by The Dominator, as they are one of the highest-scoring groups of RBs in the league.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

Week 9 might require some waiver-wire magic from The Dominator. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for The Dominator.

Draft Notes

  • Positional Fortitude

    The Dominator has four stronger-than-average positions with RB and DEF projected to lead the way.

  • Team of Champions

    The Dominator is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (DeMarco Murray, Alshon Jeffery, and Reggie Bush).

  • Mr. Relevant

    The Dominator scored the best value pick of the final round, drafting Cecil Shorts III at pick number 144.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Fajitas?

    Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Peterson is projected to rank fifth in the league with 1,643 total yards.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    Old Fashioned

    The Dominator stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Adrian Peterson and DeMarco Murray before targeting other positions.

    • Alshon Jeffery, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 24
    287 Excuses to Cheer for Alshon Jeffery

    Jeffery ranks eighth in the BNFL League among wideouts with 287 projected fantasy points.

    • Randall Cobb, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 37
    The Power of Persuasion

    Now would be a reasonable time for The Dominator to encourage the BNFL League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Randall Cobb and his 87 projected catches (ranked 10th in the NFL).

    • Reggie Bush, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 44
    A Versatile Combination

    Reggie Bush can hurt opponents with his hands as well as his feet. He ranks third among RBs in projected receiving yards with 557.

Best Available

If The Dominator has a desire to make a roster move, QB and TE are areas of need.

    • Carson Palmer
    • Rank 138, ADP 137
    • Josh McCown
    • Rank 145, ADP 133
    • Tyler Eifert

How We Grade

Draft grades are based strictly on teams' draft performances. This is calculated by counting the number of fantasy points teams are projected to score over the course of the season using their optimal line-ups. The grades do not take schedule into account. Because of bye weeks and other variables it is possible to earn a high grade yet be projected to finish in the middle of the pack. The opposite is also true. Bottom line: Fantasy Football is like the real game. You can draft the greatest talent in the world but you still need to manage your team every week to get the most out of that talent. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
