Fraile on fire Draft Report Card


Led by a Quality Group of RBs, Fraile on fire Is a Team to Watch

Draft Summary

Fraile on fire put together an underrated roster that might not dominate week in and week out, but will be firmly entrenched in a playoff spot by season's end. They're projected to finish the season with a 10-4-0 (4,827) record in BLACK OPS League, which will be good enough for fourth. They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Matt Ryan (6th overall), RB Mark Ingram (18th), WR A.J. Green (30th), and TE Travis Kelce (42nd) within the first five rounds. They built one of the highest-scoring groups of RBs in the league, as they added Frank Gore, Carlos Hyde, Ingram, and Devonta Freeman.

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


Fraile on fire should use Week 10 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why do we park in a driveway but drive on a parkway? It will be better to think about that than to check fantasy football. Their top four projected scorers (Matt Ryan, Colin Kaepernick, Frank Gore, and Carlos Hyde) will have a bye week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. Along with having the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Fraile on fire has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

    It's likely that in Week 10, Fraile on fire will either be scraping the wire or begging for a trade (Matt Ryan and Colin Kaepernick will both be on bye). You can give Favre a call, but texting him isn't recommended.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Fraile on fire might require waiver wire help in Week 10, as their No. 1- (Frank Gore), No. 2- (Carlos Hyde) and No. 4-ranked (Devonta Freeman) RBs will all be idle that week.

  • Sky's the Limit

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

  • Carrying the Load

    Fraile on fire has five above-average positions with TE and RB projected to lead the way.

  • The Best Player Plays

    Fraile on fire is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 4.4 years of NFL experience.

  • Super Sleepers

    At picks No. 174 and 186, Fraile on fire snagged a couple of late-round fliers with upside in Devonta Freeman and Devin Funchess.

Player Analysis

    • Matt Ryan, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls

    By taking Matt Ryan with the sixth overall pick, Fraile on fire should have shown more patience. According to the signal-caller's ADP of only 56.4 across all Yahoo! leagues, he could've been chosen later. TLC would disapprove.

    • Mark Ingram, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Public Service Announcement

    Flight technicians beware, Mark Ingram has a knack for breaking the plane. Despite just 926 projected rushing yards, Ingram is slated for 9.7 rushing TDs this year.

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 30
    On a Scale of 1 to America

    How free will A.J. Green get in the secondary? He's projected to put up 1,202 receiving yards this year.

    • Travis Kelce, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 42
    All Over the Field

    Travis Kelce is projected to rank among the top-5 for TEs in both receiving TDs (fourth with 5.8) and receiving yards (third with 829).

    • Carlos Hyde, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 54
    Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery

    Carlos Hyde will be trying to imitate Bo Jackson in Tecmo Bowl this season. He's expected to wind up ninth in the league with 8.4 rushing TDs.

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.
