With a Projected Finish of Sixth, DominationStation Will Battle Every Week

Draft Summary

When a bottom-half draft slot yields top-half results, that's the sign of a strong effort by the GM. Such was the case with DominationStation, which flipped its 13th overall pick into a projected sixth-place finish in OklahomIraqis League NFC League (7-6-0, 2,241 points). They waited until the eighth round to secure their top quarterback, picking up Tom Brady with the 100th overall selection. They ended up with one of the best TE combos in the league, as they have Rob Gronkowski and Vance McDonald on their team.

Schedule

Week 9 might require some artful managing from DominationStation. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a softer-than-average schedule. Along with the seventh-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for DominationStation.

Draft Notes

  • On Autopilot

    Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for DominationStation, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (LeGarrette Blount) and fourth-ranked (Reggie Bush) RBs.

  • TE or Bust

    Unfortunately, TE is the only strong position on DominationStation. Fortunately, there's always next year.

  • Team of Champions?

    DominationStation is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Allen Robinson, Rob Gronkowski, and Tom Brady.

  • Potent Potential

    Tyler Ervin and Josh Ferguson are a couple of late-round fliers with decent upside for DominationStation.

  • Basic Math is Optional

    Michael Vick once claimed, "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 378 projected rushing yards, Marcus Mariota can channel his inner Vick to help DominationStation this year.

  • DominationStation Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Tyler Ervin at pick 237 was just a bit of a stretch. Ervin is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 2, Pick 16
    A Repeat for Rob

    For the second straight year, Gronkowski appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than any other TE.

    • J. Langford, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 44
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, DominationStation didn't grab their first RB (Jeremy Langford) until the fourth round.

    • L. Blount, RB
    • Round 7, Pick 97
    Was the 97th Pick the Right Time for LeGarrette Blount?

    DominationStation apparently believes so. The Patriots' running back is projected to put up 164 points this year, after only netting 123 last year.

    • Tom Brady, QB
    • Round 8, Pick 100
    Biggest Steal

    DominationStation may have found a gem in the eighth round, grabbing Tom Brady (100th overall pick vs. ADP of 76.5).

Best Available

There are four positions that DominationStation could look to improve, including RB and DEF, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Karlos Williams
    • Rank 166, ADP 116
    • Philadelphia Defense
    • Rank 206, ADP 142
    • Green Bay Defense
    • Rank 236, ADP 133
  • Bye Week Points Lost

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..."
