Led by an Elite Group of RBs, Harambes Heros Won't Go Down Easily

Draft Summary

Harambes Heros took a high draft pick and turned it into a playoff-caliber squad with a projected record of 8-6-0 (1,701). They should be able to roll through most of Beat the Brits League on their way to a projected fourth-place finish. They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Alshon Jeffery (second round), Jordy Nelson (third round), and Eric Decker (fourth round). They also have one of the best groups of RBs in the league, as they have David Johnson, Matt Forte, LeGarrette Blount, and Arian Foster on their roster.

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

Schedule

Harambes Heros should pick up a new hobby, like bird watching, during Week 9. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the weakest schedules. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, Harambes Heros also has the easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • A Dominating Duo

    RB and DEF are both projected to be really solid units for Harambes Heros.

  • "It's Not Whether You Get Knocked Down, It's Whether You Get Up"

    After drafting the fewest projected points in the league over the draft's first half, Harambes Heros accumulated the most during the second half. Vince Lombardi would be proud.

  • May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

    Harambes Heros might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Tyrod Taylor) and second-drafted QB (Ryan Fitzpatrick) have similar seasonal point projections.

  • Decently Mediocre

    While the bottom half of the Harambes Heros 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. 10).

  • Starting Slowly

    Harambes Heros got off to a sluggish start, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • Better Late Than Never

    Harambes Heros finished on a high note, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • David Johnson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    David Johnson Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. Harambes Heros should be in decent shape if Johnson gets his 314 projected touches this year.

    • Alshon Jeffery, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    183 Excuses to Cheer for Alshon Jeffery

    Jeffery ranks seventh in the Beat the Brits League among wideouts with 183 projected fantasy points.

    • Jordy Nelson, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 24
    The Alchemist

    Harambes Heros chose a WR who's highly likely to turn a deep ball into TD gold. Jordy Nelson is projected to rank fourth among NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 5.4 and TDs over 40 yards with 2.1.

    • Michael Floyd, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 57
    Was the 57th Pick the Right Time for Michael Floyd?

    Harambes Heros apparently believes it is. The Cardinals' wide receiver is projected to put up 133 points this year, after getting 121 last year.

    • Arian Foster, RB
    • Round 7, Pick 64
    Was Arian Foster Worth it at Pick No. 64?

    Harambes Heros sure hopes so. The Dolphins' running back is projected to put up 135 points this year, after only netting 55 last year.

Best Available

While Harambes Heros is projected to have four subpar positions, TE is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.

    • Eric Ebron
    • Rank 132, ADP 135
    • Jimmy Graham
    • Rank 135, ADP 121
    • Zach Miller
    • Rank 140, ADP 136
    • Vance McDonald
    • Rank 146, ADP 138

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..."
