In Spite of Some Early-Round Value Picks, AMMODOG Needs Help

Draft Summary

While the AMMODOG roster doesn't exactly scream playoffs, it's a roster that can be improved with some wheeling and dealing. As of now, they are projected to finish ninth in OklahomIraqis League NFC League with a record of 6-7-0 (2,260 points). With their first five picks, AMMODOG focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Andrew Luck (52nd overall), RBs David Johnson (5th) and Jonathan Stewart (61st), and WRs Brandin Cooks (24th) and Sammy Watkins (33rd). They ended up with one of the worst pairs of TEs in the league, as they added Delanie Walker and Ladarius Green.

Schedule

While Week 8 has the most players on bye for AMMODOG (five), Week 10 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have an easier-than-average schedule. AMMODOG has the opportunity to come out firing, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • On Autopilot

    Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for AMMODOG, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (Isaiah Crowell) and fourth-ranked (Andre Ellington) RBs.

  • Golden Handcuff

    AMMODOG hedged their bets by scooping up Andre Ellington in the 18th round to back up David Johnson, his Cardinals teammate (a first-round selection).

  • Bargain Shopper

    With three steals in the first 11 rounds (Delanie Walker, Mike Wallace, and Andrew Luck), AMMODOG made some shrewd moves.

  • AMMODOG Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Denard Robinson at pick 192 was just a bit of a stretch. Robinson is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • David Johnson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Advanced Math

    If AMMODOG had a nickel for every time David Johnson is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 314 nickels.

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 52
    Do You Know if Andrew Luck is Religious?

    With 407 projected points, AMMODOG is hoping Luck will be the answer to their prayers.

    • Delanie Walker, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 80
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, AMMODOG got a steal in snatching Delanie Walker in the sixth round (80th overall pick vs. ADP of 61.7).

    • DeVante Parker, WR
    • Round 7, Pick 89
    Was DeVante Parker the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 89?

    AMMODOG apparently thinks so. The Dolphins' wideout is projected to improve to the tune of 172 points this year, after only putting up 93 last year.

Best Available

With four subpar positions on AMMODOG, TE and DEF are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

    • Richard Rodgers
    • Rank 205, ADP 122
    • Philadelphia Defense
    • Rank 206, ADP 142
    • Green Bay Defense
    • Rank 236, ADP 133

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..."
