With Too Many Reaches Early, Norman Nobodies Isn't Going to Win Much

Draft Summary

Draft day is always an exciting time for fantasy football fans. The excitement quickly ends, however, when you put together a team like Norman Nobodies. With a projected finish of 12th in OklahomIraqis League NFC League at 5-8-0 (2,219 points), that excitement has quickly turned to the seven stages of grief. They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Odell Beckham Jr. (first round), T.Y. Hilton (third round), and Tyler Lockett (fifth round). They also landed one of the lowest-scoring groups of RBs in the league, as they added Matt Forte, Duke Johnson Jr., T.J. Yeldon, and Ronnie Hillman to their roster.

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Norman Nobodies has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a tougher-than-average slate. Along with having the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Norman Nobodies has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • RB or Bust

    RB is the only above-average position group for Norman Nobodies.

  • Norman Nobodies Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Charles Johnson at pick 222 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Johnson is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • O. Beckham Jr., WR
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    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.

    • D. Johnson Jr., RB
    • Round 4, Pick 54
    A Bit of a Reach

    Norman Nobodies went out on a limb with their fourth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Duke Johnson Jr. has an ADP of 106.9, but he was grabbed at pick No. 54. Patience is a virtue, Norman Nobodies.

    • Tyler Lockett, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 59
    Rethinking That One

    While drafted 59th overall, Tyler Lockett isn't projected among the NFL's top-30 in either receiving TDs (37th with 6) or receiving yards (47th with 852).

    • Tavon Austin, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 82
    Was Tavon Austin Worth it at Pick No. 82?

    Norman Nobodies sure hopes so. The Rams' WR is projected to earn 183 points this year, after putting up 213 last season.

    • T.J. Yeldon, RB
    • Round 7, Pick 87
    Was T.J. Yeldon Worth it at Pick No. 87?

    Norman Nobodies sure hopes so. The Jaguars' running back is projected to put up 166 points this year, after getting 156 last year.

Best Available

With four subpar positions on Norman Nobodies, QB and TE are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.

    • Jared Goff
    • Rank 192, ADP 118
    • Richard Rodgers
    • Rank 205, ADP 122

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..."
