Led by an Elite Group of RBs, Soonerjack Can Compete With Anyone

Draft Summary

Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. Soonerjack put together a quality team and is projected to finish in fifth-place in OklahomIraqis League NFC League at 7-6-0 (2,243 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Jeremy Maclin (third round), Eric Decker (fourth round), and DeSean Jackson (fifth round). They also have the top group of RBs in the league, as they have Lamar Miller, LeSean McCoy, Matt Jones, and Darren Sproles for their rotation.

Schedule

Soonerjack can chalk up Week 9 as a loss. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Soonerjack has the opportunity to finish the season on a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    Soonerjack is stacked at RB, but QB isn't too shabby, either.

  • Root, Root, Root for the Home Team

    Soonerjack is a believer in the hopes of the Washington Redskins this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.

  • Super Sleepers

    C.J. Prosise and Virgil Green are a couple of late-round fliers with upside for Soonerjack.

  • Soonerjack Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Will Tye at pick 157 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Tye is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

  • Mr. Relevant

    Soonerjack scored the best value pick of the final round, drafting Adam Vinatieri at pick number 241.

Player Analysis

    • Lamar Miller, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 12
    Lamar Miller Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. Soonerjack should be in decent shape if Miller gets his 313 projected touches this year.

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    Traditionalist

    Soonerjack stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, nabbing Lamar Miller and LeSean McCoy right off the bat.

    • DeSean Jackson, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 68
    That Just Happened

    Why can't I find DeSean Jackson on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late-round value."

    • Matt Jones, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 73
    Was Matt Jones Worth it at Pick No. 73?

    Soonerjack sure hopes so. The Redskins' running back is projected to improve to the tune of 175 points this year, after only putting up 114 last year.

    • Stefon Diggs, WR
    • Round 7, Pick 96
    Was Stefon Diggs Worth it at Pick No. 96?

    Soonerjack sure hopes so. The Vikings' WR is projected to put up 170 points this year, after getting 150 last season.

Best Available

While Soonerjack is projected to have three below-average positions, TE is clearly their weakest unit and should be upgraded first.

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..."
