Predicted to Finish First, Big Blue Crushed this Draft

Draft Summary

After receiving a positive draft slot (No. 6 overall), Big Blue had a wonderful performance. Big Blue are predicted to finish 1st in Double Stuff Racing League with a mark of 10-3 (1,942 points).

  • Brandon Aiyuk

Best Pick

Big Blue notched a great late-round value in picking Aiyuk with the 6th pick of the 15th round, about four rounds later than his ADP of 131. Aiyuk is projected to score 167 fantasy points with the 49ers, which would make him the No. 5 WR for this squad.

  • Chase Edmonds

Regression Candidate

The RB is expected to take the biggest step back from last year among the offensive selections by Big Blue. Following a season in which he ran for 303 yards and 4 TDs and grabbed 12 passes for 105 yards and 1 TD in 12 games, totaling 77 fantasy points, Edmonds is projected to score 31 fantasy points with the Cardinals, a 60% decline. That makes him the No. 5 RB for this squad.

Draft Notes

  • The early bird gets the worm. You got the jump on your opponents at tight end, drafting George Kittle (No. 19 overall) as the first TE off the board.

  • Big Blue face a tough task in Week 11 when they have four players on a bye (George Kittle, Allen Robinson II, Devin Singletary, and Brandon Aiyuk). On the bright side, your Week 11 opponent -- Iceman -- will also be tackling their worst bye week with four players on the sideline.

  • With a first-half strength of schedule that ranks as the 2nd-most difficult based on projections, Big Blue have one of the hardest schedules in the early-going in Double Stuff Racing League. Despite that, for the full season, Big Blue face a fairly balanced schedule ranked as the 6th toughest.

  • In spite of openings at QB and RB in the 5th round, Big Blue chose WR Terry McLaurin at No. 54, filling the WR/RB flex position rather than a higher leverage 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..."
