Led by a Pair of Vikings, Kennedy's Team Aren't Exactly a Team That Can Win

Draft Summary

If you can't handle the heat, get out of the draft room. Kennedy's Team collapsed under the pressure of this draft. Picking No. 8 overall, they were clearly not ready. Behind multiple Vikings in the early rounds (Dalvin Cook and Adam Thielen), Kennedy's Team are projected to finish 8th in Yahoo Public 95288 with a record of 4-10 (1,816 points).

  • Kyler Murray

Best of the Bunch

Of all the players selected by Kennedy's Team, Murray is slated to post the highest point total this year. Following a rookie season in which he threw for 3,722 yards and 20 TDs with 12 interceptions and racked up 544 yards and 4 TDs, totaling 297 fantasy points, Murray is projected to score 342 fantasy points with the Cardinals, a 15% gain. That makes him a valuable No. 1 QB for this squad.

  • Robbie Gould

Reach Pick

It's not fair to "kick" a man when he's down, but it's tough to justify the selection of Gould at No. 88, about three rounds earlier than his ADP of 116. To be fair, he is projected to score 134 fantasy points this season with the 49ers, beating his total of 116 from last season.

Draft Notes

  • Week 6 will bring on a case of the Bye Week Blues for Kennedy's Team, as they have five players on a bye (Chris Carson, Tyler Lockett, Julian Edelman, Jared Cook, and James White). Your Week 6 opponent, Manuel's Super Team, won't be nearly as short-handed with only one player (Sony Michel) on the sideline.

  • Kennedy's Team have a fairly balanced schedule in Yahoo Public 95288 this season according to projections with a strength of schedule that ranks as the 5th toughest.

  • Kennedy's Team appear to have prioritized experience over youth, assembling a lineup with an average of 6.2 years of NFL experience, ranking as the 3rd-oldest group in the league. Driving that point home, they didn't select any of the seven rookies drafted.

  • Even with openings at QB and TE in the 5th round, Kennedy's Team drafted WR Tyler Lockett with the 48th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position rather than a more important position. They were the third-to-last squad to make their first flex pick.

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..."
