Draft Summary

Although they were stuck with the No. 11 overall selection, Ravens remained unfazed, building a roster capable of topping any team in CZNFL A League 20. Ravens are predicted to finish with a record of 12-1 (1,887 points), placing them 1st.

  • N'Keal Harry

Best Pick

Ravens notched a fantastic late-round value when they chose Harry in the 13th round, about two rounds later than his ADP of 132. Coming off a rookie season in which he snagged 12 passes for 105 yards and 2 TDs in 7 games, totaling 33 fantasy points, Harry is projected to score 155 fantasy points with the Patriots. That makes him the No. 5 WR for this squad.

  • Deebo Samuel

Going out on a Limb

Everyone fancies themselves the next fantasy expert these days, so there's no telling where you got the idea to choose Samuel with the 11th pick of the 7th round, about 14 spots earlier than his ADP of 97. Granted, perhaps you're onto something? Projected to score 208 fantasy points this season with the 49ers, he looks set to take a step forward from his rookie year when he caught 57 passes for 802 yards and 3 TDs, posting 161 fantasy points. Samuel will slot in as the No. 2 WR for Ravens, according to projections.

Draft Notes

  • Week 6 will be a rude awakening for Ravens, as they have four players on a bye (Josh Jacobs, Henry Ruggs III, N'Keal Harry, and Wil Lutz). Your Week 6 opponent, Long Island Steelers, won't be nearly as limited with only one player (James White) on a bye week.

  • Ravens have drawn one of the least challenging schedules in CZNFL A League 20 this season based on projections with a strength of schedule rated as the 2nd easiest.

  • With the 2nd-youngest group in the league at an average of 3.5 years of NFL experience, Ravens are leading the youth movement. Case in point: they selected two rookies (Henry Ruggs III and Laviska Shenault Jr.), the 3rd-highest total of first-year players in the league. In total, there were 19 rookies selected over the course of the CZNFL A League 20 draft.

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..."
