Projected to Finish First, Tooele Scammers Is Built to Take Home The Crown

Draft Summary

Learning to handle success will be the biggest obstacle for Tooele Scammers, as they figure to be at the top of the standings all season. They are expected to go 10-4-0 (1,834 points) and finish in first-place in Lazy Boy Pros League. They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Julio Jones (first round), Brandin Cooks (fourth round), and T.Y. Hilton (fifth round). They also have one of the best TE duos in the league, as they added Rob Gronkowski and Gary Barnidge.

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

Schedule

Tooele Scammers should do pretty much anything other than watch football during Week 9. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the weakest schedule. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, Tooele Scammers has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Positional Fortitude

    Tooele Scammers has five positions that are better than league average. While WR, K, and RB are projected to be good, TE is the strongest on Tooele Scammers.

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    At three different positions, Tooele Scammers picked up projected top-two players (Rob Gronkowski, Julio Jones, and Stephen Gostkowski).

  • QB Controversy?

    Tooele Scammers may have to rely on a Ouija board each week. Their top-drafted QB (Eli Manning) and second-drafted QB (Blake Bortles) have fairly similar seasonal point projections.

  • Close to the Vest

    Tooele Scammers was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 16 picks.

  • Team of Champions?

    Tooele Scammers is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Julio Jones, Rob Gronkowski, and Gary Barnidge.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Tooele Scammers chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

Player Analysis

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Just Heave it to Julio

    The lone NFL player to see 200 targets last season, only DeAndre Hopkins appeared on more championship rosters than Jones in 2015.

    • Lamar Miller, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 12
    Lamar Miller Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. Tooele Scammers should be in decent shape if Miller gets his 316 projected touches this year.

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 3, Pick 21
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Lazy Boy Pros League overlooked a gem, and Tooele Scammers made the highest value pick of the round by taking Rob Gronkowski.

    • Carlos Hyde, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 44
    Was the 44th Pick the Right Time for Carlos Hyde?

    Tooele Scammers apparently believes so. The 49ers' running back is projected to put up 175 points this year, after only netting 70 last year.

    • Eric Decker, WR
    • Round 7, Pick 53
    Biggest Steal

    Tooele Scammers may have found a gem in the seventh round, grabbing Eric Decker (53rd overall pick vs. ADP of 40.7).

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..."
