Led by a Talented WR Corps, Lucky Enuf Crushed This Draft

Draft Summary

Even Mel Kiper Jr. can't scowl at this draft performance. And he even has a scowl when he's smiling. Despite a late draft pick, Lucky Enuf assembled a team that is projected to finish first in OklahomIraqis League NFC League with a record of 10-3-0 (2,358 points). They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Julio Jones (first round), Jarvis Landry (third round), and Larry Fitzgerald (fifth round). These guys could be the key to the season for Lucky Enuf, as they are the top group of WRs in the league.

Schedule

While Week 9 has the most players on bye for Lucky Enuf (five), Week 8 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the least challenging schedule. In addition to having the easiest overall schedule, Lucky Enuf also has the easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

    It's likely that in Week 8, Lucky Enuf will either be scraping the wire or begging for a trade (Eli Manning and Ryan Tannehill will both be on bye). You can give Favre a call, but texting him isn't recommended.

  • Strength in Numbers

    In order, the three best positions for Lucky Enuf are WR, QB, and DEF.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    Lucky Enuf has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Julio Jones and Mark Ingram) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • The Bargain Whisperer

    Lucky Enuf was hunting for steals throughout the draft, snapping up a trio of bargains in the first 11 rounds (Coby Fleener, Will Fuller, and Eli Manning).

  • Lucky Enuf Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Chris Thompson at pick 172 was just a bit of a stretch. Thompson is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Just Heave it to Julio

    The lone NFL player to see 200 targets last season, only DeAndre Hopkins appeared on more first-place rosters than Jones in 2015.

    • Mark Ingram, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 25
    Advanced Math

    If Lucky Enuf had a nickel for every time Mark Ingram is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 283 nickels.

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 32
    Late Bloom for Landry

    Lucky Enuf may be sensing some WR1 potential in Landry, who was one of three players (along with Julio Jones and Antonio Brown) to see double-digit targets in each of the final four weeks of 2015.

    • Melvin Gordon, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 53
    A Bit of a Reach

    Lucky Enuf went out on a limb with their fourth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Melvin Gordon has an ADP of 85.8, but he was grabbed at pick No. 53. Patience is a virtue, Lucky Enuf.

    • L. Fitzgerald, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 60
    Rethinking That One

    While drafted 60th overall, Larry Fitzgerald isn't projected among the NFL's top-20 in either receiving TDs (21st with 7.4) or receiving yards (24th with 1,014).

Best Available

Lucky Enuf could potentially upgrade K and TE, but K is the position they'll want to focus on first.

    • Rank 204, ADP 88

    • Rank 210, ADP 95

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..."
