With a Projected Seventh-place Finish, Roughnecks Will Likely Reach Playoffs

Draft Summary

Roughnecks turned a solid draft slot (No. 5 overall) into a modest performance. Roughnecks are projected to finish 6-7 (2,408 points), which would place them 7th in OklahomIraqis League NFC.

  • Carlos Hyde

Best Pick

What a late-round value for Roughnecks, who picked up Hyde with the 10th pick of the 14th round, about five rounds later than his ADP of 129. After a season in which he rushed for 1,070 yards and 6 TDs and had 10 catches for 42 yards, totaling 153 fantasy points, Hyde is projected to score 102 fantasy points with the Seahawks. That makes him the No. 5 RB for this squad.

  • DeSean Jackson

Biggest Mover

Typically, this is when we would tell you how you got ahead of yourself in the draft. But apparently, you're not a typical fantasy owner, as we couldn't find any mistakes. So instead, let's share more positives. Of all the offensive players selected by Roughnecks, Jackson ought to show the most improvement over last year. After a season in which he racked up 9 catches for 159 yards and 2 TDs in 2 games, totaling 37 fantasy points, Jackson is projected to score 148 fantasy points with the Eagles, a 302% gain, making him the No. 3 WR for this squad.

Draft Notes

  • The early bird gets the worm. You got out in front of your opponents at quarterback, drafting Patrick Mahomes (No. 24 overall) as the first QB off the board. You were more patient at wide receiver, becoming the last manager in the league to draft a WR with the selection of Courtland Sutton (No. 61 overall).

  • Week 9 will bring on a case of the Bye Week Blues for Roughnecks, as they have six players on a bye, led by Zach Ertz, Kareem Hunt, and Dallas Goedert. Your Week 9 opponent, Lucky Enuf, won't be quite as limited with only two players (Boston Scott and Josh Reynolds) on the sideline.

  • With a first-half strength of schedule rated as the easiest according to projected records, Roughnecks have drawn an easy path in the early-going in OklahomIraqis League NFC. Despite that, for the full season, Roughnecks should expect a fairly balanced schedule ranked as the 7th toughest.

  • Even with an offensive opening at WR in the 6th round, Roughnecks selected RB Kareem Hunt with the 80th pick, filling the WR/RB flex position rather than a more important position.

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..."
