With a Projected Fourth-place Finish, The Hair Diapers Will Battle Every Week

Draft Summary

The Hair Diapers parlayed a solid draft slot (No. 5 overall) into a decent performance. The Hair Diapers are predicted to finish 8-6 (1,856 points), which would place them 4th in Yahoo Public 12704.

  • Stefon Diggs

Best Pick

What a great late-round value for The Hair Diapers, who got Diggs with the 6th pick in the 10th round, about three rounds later than his ADP of 70. Following a season in which he hauled in 63 passes for 1,130 yards and 6 TDs, totaling 181 fantasy points, Diggs is projected to score 197 fantasy points with the Bills. That makes him a valuable No. 3 WR for this squad.

  • Robbie Gould

Going out on a Limb

It's not fair to "kick" a man when he's down, but it's tough to justify picking Gould at No. 85, about three rounds earlier than his ADP of 115. To be fair, he is projected to score 134 fantasy points this season with the 49ers, surpassing his total of 116 from last season.

Draft Notes

  • Week 7 will be a rude awakening for The Hair Diapers, as they have three players on a bye (Derrick Henry, Adam Thielen, and Indianapolis). Your Week 7 opponent, Password is taco, won't be quite as limited with only one player (DJ Chark Jr.) on the sideline.

  • Based on projected records, The Hair Diapers won't have an easy path early in the season in Yahoo Public 12704 with a strength of schedule for the first three weeks that ranks as the most difficult. Despite that, for the full season, The Hair Diapers should expect a fairly balanced path that ranks as the 6th hardest.

  • With the oldest group in the league at an average of 7.1 years of NFL experience, The Hair Diapers must have prioritized age before beauty. Driving that point home, they didn't select any of the five rookies drafted.

  • In spite of an opening at QB in the 6th round, The Hair Diapers chose RB David Johnson with the 56th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a position of higher importance. They were the second-to-last squad to make their first flex pick.

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..."
