Headlined by a Terrific Group of RBs, Jake's Nice Team Has a Stacked Squad

Draft Summary

Gifted a juicy draft position (No. 2 overall), Jake's Nice Team had an outstanding performance. With Todd Gurley II and Rashaad Penny slated to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league, Jake's Nice Team is projected to finish 1st in Hiawatha Elite League with a record of 11-2 (1,593 points).

  • Cameron Meredith

Best Pick

Jake's Nice Team notched a tremendous late-round value with the selection of Meredith in the 13th round, about two rounds later than his ADP of 131. Meredith is projected to score 112 fantasy points with the Saints, which would make him the No. 5 WR for this squad.

  • Marquise Goodwin

Stretch Pick

We're going to give you some credit and assume you stepped away right before selecting Goodwin at No. 71, about three rounds earlier than his ADP of 105. Projected to score 120 fantasy points this season with the 49ers, he'll need to outperform expectations to surpass last year when he racked up 56 catches for 962 yards and 2 TDs, totaling 169 fantasy points. Goodwin will slot in as the No. 3 WR for Jake's Nice Team, based on projected points.

Draft Notes

  • If you're not first, you're last. You got out in front of your opponents at tight end, drafting Rob Gronkowski (No. 26 overall) as the first TE off the board.

  • Week 9 will bring on a case of the Bye Week Blues for Jake's Nice Team, as they have three players on a bye (A.J. Green, Jay Ajayi, and Nelson Agholor). On the bright side, your Week 9 opponent -- Comeback Kid -- will also be confronting their worst bye week with four players on the sideline.

  • Going off projected records, Jake's Nice Team has one of the least challenging schedules in Hiawatha Elite League this season with a strength of schedule that ranks as the 2nd easiest.

  • Jake's Nice Team waited until all of its individual offensive positions were full before selecting RB Rashaad Penny with the 74th pick as the first flex player on the team.

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..."
