County of Dade 305 Draft Report Card


Despite Some Early Steals, County of Dade 305 Isn't Going to Win Much

Draft Summary

The late Maya Angelou once said the greatest gift you can give yourself is forgiveness. County of Dade 305 should consider taking that advice to heart after yielding a projected finish of 11th (4-9-0 1,566 points) despite drafting in the 7 slot. They went with the SMU "Pony Express" draft strategy, loading up on three tailbacks in the first five rounds, selecting DeMarco Murray (first round), Joseph Randle (second round), and Rashad Jennings (fifth round). Even so, they ended up with one of the worst groups of RBs in the league.

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

Keeper Summary

County of Dade 305 took advantage of both of their keeper spots to retain Odell Beckham Jr. (9.9 ADP) and Andrew Luck (13.6 ADP). On average, their two keepers are dramatically more valuable (by 49.5%) than the draft picks that they replaced.


County of Dade 305 should drop off the grid during Week 11. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the toughest slates. Despite having the third-most grueling overall schedule, County of Dade 305 actually has the second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    County of Dade 305 is loaded at QB, but WR isn't too shabby, either.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, County of Dade 305 chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).

  • Team of Champions?

    County of Dade 305 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: DeMarco Murray, Andrew Luck, and Odell Beckham Jr.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    County of Dade 305 grabbed a sleeper in David Cobb with pick No. 175.

  • The Bargain Whisperer

    County of Dade 305 was hunting for steals throughout the draft, snapping up a trio of bargains in the first 9 rounds (Odell Beckham Jr., Andrew Luck, and Martavis Bryant).

  • Insider Trading?

    Andre Williams is owned in only 3% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) County of Dade 305 has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    DeMarco Da Man

    Across all Yahoo! leagues, only one Running Back (Le'Veon Bell) showed up on more first-place rosters than Murray last season.

    • Joseph Randle, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 18

    County of Dade 305 stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, nabbing DeMarco Murray and Joseph Randle right off the bat.

    • Andre Johnson, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 31
    Defensive Coordinators Plan Specifically for Johnson

    Andre Johnson is expected to reach paydirt 8.4 times, placing him eighth in the NFL in projected receiving TDs.

    • R. Jennings, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 55
    It Was a Learning Experience

    Hey, remember that time County of Dade 305 took Rashad Jennings WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Jennings was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • Mike Wallace, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 66
    Was Mike Wallace the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 66?

    County of Dade 305 apparently thinks so. The Vikings' wideout is only predicted to have 138 points this year, after producing 179 last year.

Best Available

While County of Dade 305 is projected to have four below-average positions, TE is clearly their weakest unit and should be upgraded first.

    • Vernon Davis
    • Rank 132, ADP 128

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..."
