Led by an Elite Group of RBs, The Bar Bitch Obviously Did Their Homework

Draft Summary

Isiah Thompson holds the slowest 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine in the last decade with a mark of 6.02 seconds. That's still faster than this start to the season will be for The Bar Bitch, which is projected to finish second in TLC Staff League with a record of 9-4-1 (1,940 points). They ensured WR depth would be a non-issue, as they have five WRs on the roster. However, production might be the problem. Their receivers are projected to average 198 points this year, fewer than the league average of 215. They ended up with one of the top groups of RBs in the league, as they have Adrian Peterson, Mark Ingram, DeMarco Murray, and Frank Gore on their team.

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

Schedule

The Bar Bitch will need to tap into their depth Week 8, as their top two projected scorers (Odell Beckham Jr. and Ben Roethlisberger) will be off with byes. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the lightest slate. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, The Bar Bitch also has the league's easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Close to the Vest

    The Bar Bitch was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • Tread Left on the Tires

    With an average of 7.9 years of NFL experience, The Bar Bitch is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.

  • Team of Champions

    The Bar Bitch is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including Odell Beckham Jr., Adrian Peterson, and Mark Ingram.

  • Gary the Great

    Drafting for last year's results is risky, but among all TEs in 2015, Barnidge ranked fourth in both TDs and yardage, third in receptions, and second in targets.

  • Not Cashing In

    Although he ranks in the top-5 in projected passing yards (fourth with 4,579), Matt Ryan is expected to place only 23rd in the NFL with 22.1 TD passes.

  • Arm Cannon

    The Bar Bitch drafted one of the most explosive QBs in the league in Matt Ryan. Among NFL QBs, he's projected to rank fourth in both plays over 40 yards with 11.5 and TDs over 40 yards with 4.4.

Player Analysis

    • O. Beckham Jr., WR
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    Does Odell Beckham Jr. Believe in UFOs?

    Because his all-purpose yardage figures are out of this world. Beckham Jr. is projected to rank eighth in the league with 1,537 total yards.

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    Adrian Peterson Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. The Bar Bitch should be in decent shape if Peterson gets his 340 projected touches this year.

    • Jordy Nelson, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 27
    The Alchemist

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

    • Mark Ingram, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 34
    Biggest Steal

    The Bar Bitch may have found a gem in the fourth round, grabbing Mark Ingram (34th overall pick vs. ADP of 21.4).

    • B. Roethlisberger, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 54
    Is Ben Roethlisberger Religious?

    With 311 projected points, The Bar Bitch will be hoping Roethlisberger is the answer to their prayers.

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..."
