EATSLEEP???REPEAT put together an underrated roster that might not dominate week in and week out, but will be firmly entrenched in a playoff spot by season's end. They're projected to finish the season with a 6-6-1 (1,321) record in Final Fantasy Football VIII League, which will be good enough for sixth. They loaded up on ball carriers early, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs Adrian Peterson (first round), Chris Ivory (fourth round), and Doug Martin (fifth round). EATSLEEP???REPEAT will rely heavily on this group, as they are the best group of RBs in the league.
EATSLEEP???REPEAT will need to tap into their depth Week 5, as their top two projected scorers (Ryan Tannehill and Adrian Peterson) will have a bye week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Despite having the sixth-easiest overall schedule, EATSLEEP???REPEAT actually has the toughest first four games of the season.
EATSLEEP???REPEAT is stacked at WR, but QB isn't too shabby, either.
Up, Up, and Away
With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, EATSLEEP???REPEAT hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.
The top half of the EATSLEEP???REPEAT roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 3). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 11).
A Dominating Duo
EATSLEEP???REPEAT has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Randall Cobb and Arian Foster) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
Ronnie Hillman is owned in only 3% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) EATSLEEP???REPEAT has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.
In terms of projected points, the choice of Ronnie Hillman with the 166th pick gave EATSLEEP???REPEAT the worst pick of the final round. This Mr. Irrelevant gets no parade, unfortunately.
Peterson is Hungry
- A. Peterson, RB
- Round 1, Pick 3
And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank second in the NFL with 333 touches.
- Randall Cobb, WR
- Round 2, Pick 22
EATSLEEP???REPEAT chose the WR most likely to turn deep balls into TD gold. Randall Cobb is projected to lead all NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 5.7 and TDs over 40 yards with 2.2.
Throwing Caution to the Wind
- Chris Ivory, RB
- Round 4, Pick 46
They grabbed Chris Ivory with the 46th pick, even though his ADP is only 94.7 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Was Allen Robinson the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 70?
- Allen Robinson, WR
- Round 6, Pick 70
EATSLEEP???REPEAT apparently thinks so. The Jaguars' wideout is projected to improve to the tune of 130 points this year, after only putting up 68 last year.
Was Ryan Tannehill Worth it at Pick No. 75?
- Ryan Tannehill, QB
- Round 7, Pick 75
EATSLEEP???REPEAT sure hopes so. The Dolphins' signal-caller is projected to have 281 points this year, almost the same as his total from last season.
With four below-average positions on EATSLEEP???REPEAT, TE and DEF are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Josh Hill
- Rank 147, ADP 131
- Ladarius Green
- Rank 150, ADP 135
- San Francisco Defense
- Rank 215, ADP 140
- Indianapolis Defense
- Rank 222, ADP 143

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..."
