In Spite of Some Bargains, Todd's Team Have Nowhere to go But Up

Draft Summary

If you can't handle the heat, get out of the draft room. Todd's Team folded under the pressure of this draft. Picking No. 10 overall, they were clearly ill-equipped. Todd's Team are projected to finish 9th in Yahoo Public 12704 with a record of 4-10 (1,809 points).

  • T.Y. Hilton

Best Pick

Todd's Team scored a nice late-round bargain with the pick of Hilton in the 10th round, about three rounds later than his ADP of 69. After a season in which he grabbed 45 passes for 501 yards and 5 TDs in 10 games, totaling 103 fantasy points, Hilton is projected to score 196 fantasy points with the Colts. That makes him a valuable No. 2 WR for this squad.

  • Evan Engram

Going out on a Limb

Either you know something that nobody else does or you jumped the gun with your selection of Engram with the 10th pick in the 7th round, about 19 spots earlier than his ADP of 89. Maybe you're onto something, though. Projected to score 121 fantasy points this season with the Giants, he looks set to take a step forward from last year when he grabbed 44 balls for 467 yards and 3 TDs in 8 games to post 87 fantasy points. According to projected points, Engram will slot in as the No. 2 TE for Todd's Team to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • With only two quarterbacks off the board, Todd's Team predicted a run coming and jumped in early, taking Dak Prescott at No. 51 overall. Three more quarterbacks went in the round that followed.

  • Todd's Team have one of the most daunting schedules in Yahoo Public 12704 this season based on projected records with a strength of schedule that rates as the 3rd-most difficult. But all is not lost. Strength of schedule doesn't incorporate how involved you are. There are a number of means to improve during the season for those who stay active.

  • Todd's Team appear to be counting on veteran leadership, putting together a lineup with an average of 5.7 years of NFL experience, ranking as the 2nd-oldest group in the league. To that end, they didn't pick any of the five rookies drafted.

  • Even with remaining openings at QB, WR, and TE in the 4th round, Todd's Team drafted RB Melvin Gordon III with the 31st pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a higher leverage position. They were the third 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..."
