Draft day is always an exciting time for fantasy football fans. The excitement quickly ends, however, when you put together a team like Omega G-MEN. With a projected finish of 10th in Football Fiends League at 1-12-0 (1,262 points), that excitement has quickly turned to the seven stages of grief. They drafted three decent RBs for their roster. This group is projected to average 168 points this season, which is close the league average of 164. They also landed one of the highest-scoring groups of WRs in the league, as they have Odell Beckham Jr., Sammy Watkins, and Golden Tate on the roster.
Omega G-MEN should use Week 10 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why don't the pants worn by Dr. Bruce Banner rip when he transforms into the Hulk? It's better to think about that than pay attention to fantasy football. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the most challenging schedule. Corresponding with the most grueling overall schedule, Omega G-MEN also has the league's second-toughest first four games and second-most difficult last four games of the season.
TE is the strongest position for Omega G-MEN, though WR and RB aren't too shabby either.
May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor
Omega G-MEN might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Philip Rivers) and second-drafted QB (Tyrod Taylor) have similar seasonal point projections.
Close to the Vest
Omega G-MEN was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 11 picks.
A Pair of Proven Winners
Omega G-MEN has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Odell Beckham Jr. and Mark Ingram) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, Omega G-MEN chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
Basic Math is Optional
Michael Vick once claimed, "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 519 projected rushing yards, Tyrod Taylor can channel his inner Vick to help Omega G-MEN this year.
Does Odell Beckham Jr. Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?
- O. Beckham Jr., WR
- Round 1, Pick 2
Because his all-purpose yardage projections are tasty. Beckham Jr. is ranked seventh in the league with 1,526 all-purpose yards.
Ingram is Hungry
- Mark Ingram, RB
- Round 2, Pick 19
And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank 10th in the NFL with 290 touches.
Better Lucky Than Good?
- Jordan Reed, TE
- Round 4, Pick 39
The rest of Football Fiends League overlooked a gem, and Omega G-MEN made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Jordan Reed.
Like Face Wash for Teenagers
- Philip Rivers, QB
- Round 6, Pick 59
Omega G-MEN was proactive about grabbing a QB. They reached for Philip Rivers at pick number 59 even though his ADP is only 81.8 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Was the 62nd Pick the Right Time for a Defense?
- Seattle, DEF
- Round 7, Pick 62
Omega G-MEN apparently believes it is. Seattle's D is projected to put up only 126 points this year, after netting 162 last year.
There are three positions that Omega G-MEN could look to upgrade, including K, which looks like their biggest area of need.
- Nick Folk
- Rank 215, ADP 120
- Justin Tucker
- Rank 216, ADP 114
- Josh Brown
- Rank 217, ADP 137
- Cairo Santos
- Rank 220, ADP 142

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.
