Laden with WR Talent, Volcano Man are a Team to Watch

Draft Summary

Turning a bottom-half draft slot into top-half results is the sign of an impressive effort by the GM. Such was the case with Volcano Man, which flipped its No. 7 overall pick into a projected 5th-place finish in Mistrzostwa Polski - Liga G. The team is notably strong at wide receiver, as Michael Thomas and Tyler Lockett are expected to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting WR groups in the league. Volcano Man are predicted to put up a total of 1,878 points based on the current roster, which would result in a 9-8 record.

  • Henry Ruggs III

Best Pick

Volcano Man netted an outstanding late-round bargain in selecting Ruggs III in the 17th round, about seven rounds later than his ADP of 124. Ruggs III is projected to score 110 fantasy points with the Raiders, which makes him the No. 6 WR for this squad.

  • Phillip Lindsay

Going out on a Limb

You must have had some inside intel when deciding to draft Lindsay in the 7th round, about 25 slots earlier than his ADP of 104. Projected to score 142 fantasy points this season with the Broncos, he will need to outperform expectations to surpass last year when he rushed for 1,011 yards and 7 TDs and grabbed 35 passes for 196 yards to earn 163 fantasy points. Lindsay will slot in as the No. 4 RB for Volcano Man, based on projected points.

Draft Notes

  • Volcano Man are particularly deep at wide receiver, taking more than any other team in the league with six, surpassing the league average of just 4.4.

  • Better late than never. With the selection of QB Jared Goff (No. 138 overall), you became the last manager in the league to draft a quarterback.

  • With a first-half strength of schedule that ranks as the 2nd-most difficult based on projected records, Volcano Man have one of the most challenging schedules in the early-going in Mistrzostwa Polski - Liga G. In spite of that, for the full season, Volcano Man should expect a fairly balanced path that rates as the 4th hardest.

  • Even with openings on offense at QB and TE in the 5th round, Volcano Man chose WR T.Y. Hilton with the 55th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of 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..."
