After Some Early Gambles, Buckners Muff Divers Probably Should Have Done Some Research

Draft Summary

Buckners Muff Divers does know this is "football" not "fútbol", right? Either way they turned the first overall pick into an easy win for the rest of the league, as they are projected to finish ninth in Paul's Piss Stains League with a record of 5-9-0. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Andrew Luck (20th overall), RBs Le'Veon Bell (1st) and Joseph Randle (41st), and WRs A.J. Green (21st) and Golden Tate (40th). They put together one of the worst groups of WRs in the league, as they have Green, Tate, Nelson Agholor, and Charles Johnson for their rotation.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Week 10 would be a good opportunity for Buckners Muff Divers to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. In addition to having the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Buckners Muff Divers also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    Buckners Muff Divers is loaded at QB, but RB isn't too shabby, either.

  • The First Step is Admitting You Have a Problem

    It seems like Buckners Muff Divers likes to gamble -- they rolled the dice on six "high-risk" picks.

  • Detroit Lions Fan?

    Buckners Muff Divers is a believer in the hopes of the Detroit Lions this season, grabbing a couple of players on that team sooner than their ADPs might suggest.

  • Show Some ID

    Buckners Muff Divers isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 3.2 years of NFL experience.

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, Buckners Muff Divers picked only one player at three different positions (QB, TE, and DEF).

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    Buckners Muff Divers has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Le'Veon Bell and Andrew Luck) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

Player Analysis

    • Le'Veon Bell, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 1
    Week 4 Can't Arrive Soon Enough

    Across all Yahoo! leagues, no other Running Back appeared more often on first-place rosters than Le'Veon Bell last season.

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    Buckners Muff Divers Made Sure Luck Was On Their Side

    Any questions about Luck's development were quelled last year, as the Indy gunslinger firmly entrenched himself among fantasy's elite at the QB position.

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 21
    255 Excuses to Cheer for A.J. Green

    • Joseph Randle, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 41
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Joseph Randle, the weakest value of the round.

    • Nelson Agholor, WR
    • Round 7, Pick 61
    A Bit of a Reach

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..."
