With Too Many Reaches Early, redskins77 Should Call Chip Kelly for Trade Advice

Draft Summary

Despite selecting with the third overall pick, redskins77 couldn't capitalize on the opportunity and drafted a roster that will have trouble winning. Opponents will enjoy beating this team with regularity, which is projected to finish 10th in Any Given Sunday League with a record of 2-12-0 (1,993 points). With their first five picks, redskins77 focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Cam Newton (18th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (3rd) and Arian Foster (43rd), and WRs Demaryius Thomas (23rd) and Doug Baldwin (38th). They also have the top QB tandem in the league, as they added Newton and Andy Dalton.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.


redskins77 should use Week 9 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why don't the pants worn by Dr. Bruce Banner rip when he transforms into the Hulk? It's better to think about that than pay attention to fantasy football. They have seven players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Despite having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, redskins77 actually has the easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Up, Up, and Away

    With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, redskins77 hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Drink Plenty of Milk

    With an average of 7.7 years of NFL experience, redskins77 has the greatest chance of losing a player to osteoporosis.

  • Decently Mediocre

    While the bottom half of the redskins77 roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).

  • Big D

    redskins77 elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    redskins77 has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Adrian Peterson and Cam Newton) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Better Late Than Never

    redskins77 finished on a high note, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 336 touches, Adrian Peterson is projected to rank second in the NFL in that category. How touching, redskins77.

    • Cam Newton, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Did redskins77 Just Dab?

    Among QBs last season, only Tom Brady appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than the reigning league MVP.

    • D. Thomas, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 23
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Demaryius Thomas had less value than any other pick of the round.

    • Doug Baldwin, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 38
    Rethinking That One

    While drafted 38th overall, Doug Baldwin isn't projected among the NFL's top-30 in either receiving TDs (33rd with 6.3) or receiving yards (31st with 955).

    • Arian Foster, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 43
    Taking a Chance

    With their fifth-round pick, redskins77 threw caution to the wind. They took Arian Foster at pick number 43 despite an ADP of 85.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.

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..."
