Behind a Quality Backfield, Casey Cranford Will Cruise Through this League

Draft Summary

After drawing a juicy draft position (No. 2 overall), Casey Cranford had an outstanding performance. The team is particularly strong at running back, as Saquon Barkley and Aaron Jones are slated to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. Casey Cranford are projected to finish 1st in Yahoo Public 95288 with a record of 12-2 (1,992 points).

  • DeVante Parker

Biggest Steal

Casey Cranford scored a tremendous mid-round value with the pick of Parker with the 9th pick of the 8th round, about two rounds later than his ADP of 55. Coming off a season in which he hauled in 72 balls for 1,202 yards and 9 TDs, totaling 210 fantasy points, Parker is projected to score 214 fantasy points with the Dolphins. That makes him a valuable No. 1 WR for this squad.

  • Aaron Jones

Regression Candidate

The RB ought to be the least likely to repeat what he did last year of all the offensive players selected by Casey Cranford. Following a season in which he rushed for 1,084 yards and 16 TDs and hauled in 49 balls for 474 yards and 3 TDs, totaling 290 fantasy points, Jones is projected to score 243 fantasy points with the Packers, a 16% decline. That would make him the No. 2 RB for this squad.

Draft Notes

  • Casey Cranford face a difficult challenge in Week 10 when they have four players on a bye (Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Hayden Hurst, and Los Angeles). Your Week 10 opponent, Steve's Team, won't be quite as short-handed with only two players (Todd Gurley II and Harrison Butker) getting the week off.

  • Casey Cranford have one of the lightest schedules in Yahoo Public 95288 this season based on projected records with a strength of schedule that ranks as the 2nd easiest.

  • Casey Cranford have drafted a strong group of players across the board. The top players from each position, as a group, are forecasted to score the most points in the league. This isn't a Stars-and-Scrubs story either, as the rest of the roster is predicted to reach a point total ranking 2nd.

  • Casey Cranford filled all of their individual offensive positions before taking advantage of the WR/RB/TE flex position, choosing RB Devin Singletary with the 62nd pick as the first flex player on the team.

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.
