This draft by Straight Cash Homie was like a finely tuned Peyton Manning-led offense, with all the pieces falling into place. Just like Peyton's offense, Straight Cash Homie is expected to score a lot of points this season and finish third in Hiawatha Elite League at 9-3-1 (1,457 points). They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Antonio Brown (first round), Mike Evans (third round), and Amari Cooper (fifth round). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, Straight Cash Homie will benefit. They are the best group of WRs in the league.
Straight Cash Homie should use Week 11 to consider life's great mysteries, like why abbreviation is such a long word. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the easiest slates. Along with the third-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Straight Cash Homie.
Straight Cash Homie has four positions that are better than league average. While RB, DEF, and QB are projected to be good, WR is the strongest on Straight Cash Homie.
The coach of Straight Cash Homie might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted QB (Ben Roethlisberger) and second-drafted QB (Ryan Tannehill) have very similar seasonal point projections.
It appears that Straight Cash Homie likes to gamble, as they took chances on six volatile selections.
Veteran Mentors on the Bench
While the top half of the roster (from a projected points perspective) is relatively young (ranked No. 11 in the league with an average of 4.8 years of NFL experience), the bench is quite experienced (ranked No. 2 with 6.3 years).
Straight Cash Homie's Stud Signal-Caller
Ryan Tannehill is projected to rack up 292 points this year, enough to rank seventh among all QBs.
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 10
With sticky hands that would make Spider-Man jealous, Antonio Brown has serious value in all PPR leagues. He's projected to catch an NFL-leading 116 balls this year.
Jeremy Hill Doesn't Read the Playbook
- Jeremy Hill, RB
- Round 2, Pick 15
The playbook reads him. Straight Cash Homie should be in decent shape if Hill gets his 305 projected touches this year.
164 More Reasons to Appreciate Mike Evans
- Mike Evans, WR
- Round 3, Pick 34
Evans ranks 10th in the Hiawatha Elite League among WRs with 164 projected fantasy points.
Rarely Seen in the Wild
- Melvin Gordon, RB
- Round 4, Pick 39
With 1,114 projected yards on the ground, Melvin Gordon is an elusive three-down back.
Derek Carr's New Toy
- Amari Cooper, WR
- Round 5, Pick 58
And now Straight Cash Homie gets to play, too. Cooper's projected to finish in the top-20 for receptions this year, something that hasn't happened in Oakland since Jerry Porter ten years ago.
Straight Cash Homie has a couple positions they may look to upgrade (TE and K), but TE is the area they'll want to focus their attention first.
- Austin Seferian-Jenkins
- Rank 126, ADP 133
- Jordan Reed
- Rank 133, ADP 136
- Josh Hill
- Rank 147, ADP 131
- Ladarius Green
- Rank 150, ADP 135

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.
