Despite a Set of Monster RBs, Wild Chihuahuas Isn't Anything to Fear

Draft Summary

Mediocrity isn't for everyone Wild Chihuahuas, so feel proud. Ok, maybe it is. But hey, you showed up, and that's the important thing. After this average draft performance, Wild Chihuahuas is projected to go 6-7-0 (1,558 points) and finish sixth in Gentrified Hood League. They loaded up on ball carriers early, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs Eddie Lacy (first round), LeSean McCoy (third round), and Joseph Randle (fifth round). These guys could be the key to the season for Wild Chihuahuas, as they are one of the top groups of RBs in the league.

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

Schedule

While Week 6 has the most players on bye for Wild Chihuahuas (four), Week 8 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the most challenging slate. In addition to having the most grueling overall schedule, Wild Chihuahuas also has the most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

    Wild Chihuahuas might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Sam Bradford) and second-drafted QB (Teddy Bridgewater) have similar seasonal point projections.

  • Up, Up, and Away

    With five players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Wild Chihuahuas hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Show Some ID

    Wild Chihuahuas isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 4.2 years of NFL experience.

  • The First Step is Admitting You Have a Problem

    It appears that Wild Chihuahuas enjoys gambling, as they took chances on six "high-risk" picks.

  • Good to Have Balance, Right?

    While the bottom half of the Wild Chihuahuas roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 2), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 8).

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Wild Chihuahuas pounced on him at pick No. 144.

Player Analysis

    • Eddie Lacy, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

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..."
