With Multiple Bears, Chad's Cool Team Won't Go Down Easily

Draft Summary

Picking late (fifth overall), Chad's Cool Team did what they could with what they were given. While this team isn't a juggernaut by any means, it's a team capable of reaching the playoffs if the chips fall their way. They are expected to finish third in Fat Kids Wrestling Club with a record of 7-7-0 (1,670 points). They wanted to shore up any RB concerns early, using three of their first five draft picks to draft RBs Matt Forte (first round), Eddie Lacy (second round), and Andre Ellington (fourth round). This group will have to produce in order for Chad's Cool Team to have a good season, as they are the most prolific group of RBs in the league.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

Chad's Cool Team should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why abbreviation is such a long word. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. Their top four projected scorers (Matt Ryan, Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, and Eddie Lacy) will be off with byes. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. Although they have the third-easiest overall schedule, Chad's Cool Team actually has the league's second-toughest first four games and second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Winning in the Windy City

    The fantasy hopes of Chad's Cool Team rest heavily on the fortunes of Chicago, as they loaded up with four Bears on their roster.

  • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

    Chad's Cool Team grabbed a couple of QBs (Matt Ryan and Jay Cutler) that'll both be on bye in Week 9, and will be looking for a signal-caller. You can call Brett, but texting him isn't exactly recommended.

  • Sky's the Limit

    With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Chad's Cool Team hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Utter Ridiculousness

    In Week 10, both New England and Houston will be on bye. Drafting two defenses with the same bye week is a unique strategy, Chad's Cool Team.

  • Risk Averse

    Chad's Cool Team minimized risk by choosing seven consistent players among their 16 picks.

  • I Keep Getting Older

    And they stay the same age. Chad's Cool Team isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 5.4 years of NFL experience.

Player Analysis

    • B. Marshall, WR

    • A. Ellington, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 20

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..."
