After Some Early Gambles, MONT's Notable Team Should Have Autodrafted

Draft Summary

Is someone going to put out that dumpster fire? Oh, whoops, that's not a dumpster fire that's the MONT's Notable Team roster. Easy mistake with a team that needs this much work. As the roster stands, MONT's Notable Team is projected to finish 10th in Virgin League with a record of 2-10-1 (1,730 points). With their first five picks, MONT's Notable Team focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Andrew Luck (4th overall), RBs DeMarco Murray (17th) and Carlos Hyde (44th), and WRs Jordan Matthews (24th) and Davante Adams (37th). They landed the most prolific QB pair in the league, as they have Luck and Colin Kaepernick on the roster.

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

Schedule

Week 10 might require some waiver-wire magic from MONT's Notable Team, as their top two projected scorers (Andrew Luck and Colin Kaepernick) will have a bye week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the hardest schedules. Along with the second-most taxing overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for MONT's Notable Team.

Draft Notes

  • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

    MONT's Notable Team grabbed a couple of QBs (Andrew Luck and Colin Kaepernick) that'll both be on bye in Week 10, and will be looking for a signal-caller. You can call Brett, but texting him isn't exactly recommended.

  • Earning Your Paycheck

    MONT's Notable Team will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Davante Adams), fourth- (Eric Decker), and fifth-ranked (Larry Fitzgerald) wideouts.

  • Risk Averse

    MONT's Notable Team minimized risk by choosing six consistent players among their 15 picks.

  • Veteran Mentors on the Bench

    While the top half of the roster (from a projected points perspective) is relatively young (ranked No. 10 in the league with an average of 4.1 years of NFL experience), the bench is quite experienced (ranked No. 1 with 7.7 years).

  • Good to Have Balance, Right?

    While the bottom half of the MONT's Notable Team 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).

  • A Dominating Duo

    MONT's Notable Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Andrew Luck and DeMarco Murray) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

Player Analysis

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    MONT's Notable Team Made Sure Luck Was On Their Side

    A bargain at his ADP last year, Andrew Luck was owned on more playoff rosters and championship rosters across Yahoo! than any other QB.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    Can DeMarco Duplicate?

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

    • J. Matthews, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 24
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, Jordan Matthews was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • Davante Adams, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 37
    Apparently ADP is Overrated

    With their fourth-round pick, MONT's Notable Team pulled the trigger. They took Davante Adams at pick number 37 despite an ADP of just 82 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Carlos Hyde, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 44
    It Might be Yogging with a Soft "J"

    Even if you ran as fast as you could, it'd look like slow motion compared to Carlos Hyde. The RB is projected to rack up 8.4 rushing TDs this year, ninth in the league.

Best Available

There are three positions that MONT's Notable Team could look to improve, including TE and WR, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Vernon Davis
    • Rank 132, ADP 128
    • Jordan Reed
    • Rank 133, ADP 136
    • Brandon LaFell

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..."
