When a bottom-half draft slot yields top-half results, that's the sign of a strong effort by the GM. Such was the case with GAME OVER, which flipped its sixth overall pick into a projected fifth-place finish in LiAus League (7-7-0, 1,281 points). They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs A.J. Green (second round), Keenan Allen (third round), and Pierre Garcon (fourth round). This group will have to produce in order for GAME OVER to have a good season, as they are one of the best groups of WRs in the league.
GAME OVER took advantage of their only keeper position to hold on to Le'Veon Bell (20.9 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is less valuable than a first-round draft pick.
Week 10 would be a good opportunity for GAME OVER to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for GAME OVER.
A Dominating Pair
WR and QB are both projected to be really solid units for GAME OVER.
The Sky's the Limit
With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, GAME OVER hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
GAME OVER will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 10, as their only TE (Jordan Reed) and only DEF (Houston) will both be idle that week.
I Keep Getting Older
And they stay the same age. GAME OVER isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 2.7 years of NFL experience.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, GAME OVER chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
GAME OVER nabbed a sleeper in Tre Mason with pick No. 146.
Does Eddie Lacy Enjoy Fajitas?
- Eddie Lacy, RB
- Round 1, Pick 6
Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Lacy is projected to rank eighth in the league with 1,538 total yards.
180 Excuses to Cheer for A.J. Green
- A.J. Green, WR
- Round 2, Pick 15
Green ranks sixth in the LiAus League among wideouts with 180 projected fantasy points.
Haters Gonna Hate
- A. Ellington, RB
- Round 5, Pick 46
The rest of LiAus League overlooked a gem, and GAME OVER made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Andre Ellington.
Was Jordan Reed Worth Pick No. 55?
- Jordan Reed, TE
- Round 6, Pick 55
GAME OVER apparently thinks so. The Redskins' TE is projected to improve to the tune of 101 points this year, after only putting up 70 last season.
Is Nick Foles Religious?
- Nick Foles, QB
- Round 7, Pick 66
With 288 projected points, GAME OVER will be hoping Foles is the answer to their prayers.
GAME OVER has four positions where an upgrade could be beneficial, with DEF being the most immediate need.
- Kansas City Defanse
- Rank 185, ADP 77
- Chicago Defanse
- Rank 212, ADP 121
- Buffalo Defanse
- Rank 215, ADP 138
- Indianapolis Defanse
- Rank 225, ADP 144

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.
