Projected to Finish Seventh, Lockett Down Has an Average Squad

Draft Summary

Look, Lockett Down, not everyone achieves the "above" in "above average," it has to be earned. Just be happy being an average GM, and maybe with a little hard work and a better draft next season, your team will reach that milestone. Lockett Down didn't kill their playoff aspirations with this draft, but they'll have to do some extra work to get there. For now, they're projected to finish in seventh-place in Sports Ball Challenge League at 5-9-0 (1,512 points). With their first five picks, Lockett Down aimed for balance, selecting QB Drew Brees (34th overall), RBs Eddie Lacy (7th) and Frank Gore (27th), and WRs Calvin Johnson (14th) and Brandon Marshall (47th). They put together one of the best RB tandems in the league, as they have Lacy and Gore to carry the load.

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

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Lockett Down has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least difficult slates. Lockett Down has the opportunity to finish the season on a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • Assessing the Assets

    QB is the strongest position for Lockett Down, though DEF and WR are also better than the league's average.

  • Senior Citizen Discount

    With an average of 7.2 years of NFL experience, Lockett Down is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Lockett Down nabbed a sleeper in Kyle Rudolph with pick No. 147.

  • Trigger Happy

    With their ninth-round pick, Lockett Down pulled the trigger. They drafted Justin Tucker at pick number 87 despite an ADP of just 118.8 across all Yahoo! leagues.

  • Lockett Down Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Chris Polk at pick 127 was just a bit of a stretch. Polk is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Eddie Lacy, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 329 touches, Eddie Lacy is projected to rank third in the NFL in that category. How touching, Lockett Down.

    • Calvin Johnson, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law

    Calvin Johnson is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 89 projected catches rank eighth in the league.

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 34
    Blitzkrieg

    Lockett Down drafted the most explosive QB in the league in Drew Brees. He's projected to drop bombs on DBs this year, to lead NFL QBs in plays over 40 yards with 13.3 and TDs over 40 yards with 5.1.

    • Jason Witten, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 54
    Was the 54th Pick the Right Time for Jason Witten?

    Lockett Down apparently believes it is. The Cowboys' tight end is projected to earn 110 points this year, after putting up 100 last year.

    • Jeremy Maclin, WR
    • Round 7, Pick 67
    Jumpin' For Jeremy

    Across all Yahoo! leagues, only two WRs (Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders) appeared more often on first-place rosters than Maclin last season.

Best Available

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..."
