Led by Two Texans, EatSleepGronkRepeat Has a Roster that Reeks of Mediocrity

Draft Summary

Look, EatSleepGronkRepeat, not everyone achieves the "above" in "above average," it has to be earned. Just be happy being an average GM, and maybe with a little hard work and a better draft next season, your team will reach that milestone. EatSleepGronkRepeat didn't kill their playoff aspirations with this draft, but they'll have to do some extra work to get there. For now, they're projected to finish in sixth-place in Beat the Brits League at 7-7-0 (1,693 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Russell Wilson (32nd overall), RB Lamar Miller (12th), WR DeAndre Hopkins (9th), and TE Greg Olsen (49th) within the first five rounds. They put together the bottom group of WRs in the league, as they have Hopkins, Jeremy Maclin, Tyler Lockett, and Ted Ginn Jr. for their rotation.

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


Week 5 might require some artful managing from EatSleepGronkRepeat. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a tougher-than-average slate. In addition to having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, EatSleepGronkRepeat has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • A Dominating Duo

    QB and RB are both projected to be really solid units for EatSleepGronkRepeat.

  • Drink Plenty of Milk

    With an average of 6.7 years of NFL experience, EatSleepGronkRepeat has the greatest chance of losing a player to osteoporosis.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the EatSleepGronkRepeat roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 2). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 8).

  • Big D

    EatSleepGronkRepeat elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • Mr. Mendoza

    Spencer Ware is owned in only 7% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) EatSleepGronkRepeat has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

  • Throwing Caution to the Wind

    They grabbed Spencer Ware with the 92nd pick, even though his ADP is only 122.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • D. Hopkins, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 9
    Diagnosis: more DeAndre!

    Hopkins' breakout was just what the doctor ordered for fantasy owners last year. Only Devonta Freeman and Tom Brady appeared more often on championship rosters than Houston's star WR.

    • Lamar Miller, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 12
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Beat the Brits League overlooked a gem, and EatSleepGronkRepeat made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Lamar Miller.

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 29
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 297 touches, LeSean McCoy is projected to rank sixth in the NFL in that category. How touching, EatSleepGronkRepeat.

    • Russell Wilson, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 32
    Effective, Efficient, and Elite

    Wilson joined Brady and Rodgers as the only QBs to throw for more than 25 touchdowns and have fewer than 10 interceptions last season.

    • Greg Olsen, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 49
    All Over the Field

    Greg Olsen is projected to rank among the top-5 for TEs in both receiving TDs (fourth with 6.9) and receiving yards (third with 947).

Best Available

EatSleepGronkRepeat has four positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including DEF and K, which look like the biggest areas of need.

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..."
