A brilliant draft-day performance by the GM of Blue Falcons turned the No. 8 overall pick into a projected 1st-place finish. After picking up multiple Browns in the early rounds (Nick Chubb and Odell Beckham Jr.), Blue Falcons are predicted to finish 11-2 (2,577 points) in OklahomIraqis League PFC.

  • Russell Wilson

Best Pick: What a nice early value for Blue Falcons, who got Wilson in the 5th round, about 20 spots later than his ADP of 44. Following a season in which he threw for 4,110 yards and 31 TDs with 5 interceptions and accumulated 342 yards and 3 TDs, totaling 432 fantasy points, Wilson is projected to score 445 fantasy points with the Seahawks. That makes him a valuable No. 1 QB for this squad.

  • Marvin Jones Jr.

Going out on a Limb: It seems everyone fancies themselves the next fantasy expert these days, so there's no telling where you got the idea to draft Jones Jr. in the 6th round, about 32 picks earlier than his ADP of 109. You may be onto something, though. Projected to score 225 fantasy points this season with the Lions, he looks poised to take a step forward from last year when he snagged 62 balls for 779 yards and 9 TDs in 13 games to earn 194 fantasy points. Jones Jr. will slot in as the No. 4 WR for Blue Falcons, based on projections.

Draft Notes

  • With only three quarterbacks off the board, Blue Falcons saw a run coming and jumped in early, taking Russell Wilson in the 5th round. Four more quarterbacks were off the board in the ensuing round.

  • Blue Falcons face a tough task in Week 11 when they have six players on a bye, led by George Kittle, Deebo Samuel, and Brandon Aiyuk. Fear not: your Week 11 opponent -- Orange bloods -- will also be tackling their worst bye week with four players getting the week off.

  • Blue Falcons won't encounter too many obstacles in OklahomIraqis League PFC this season based on projections with a strength of schedule that ranks as the easiest. But don't get complacent. For those managers who don't stay diligent, even the softest schedules can present problems.

  • In spite of an open slot at RB in the 7th round, Blue Falcons selected WR Deebo Samuel with the 92nd pick, utilizing the multiple flex positions.

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..."
