Although they drew the No. 11 overall selection, Roughnecks didn't flinch, building a roster capable of beating any team in OklahomIraqis League NFC. Roughnecks are projected to finish with a record of 9-4 (2,651 points), good enough for 3rd.

  • Josh Allen

Best Pick: Roughnecks scored a nice early-round value when they selected Allen at No. 46, about 16 slots later than his ADP of 30. After a season in which he threw for 4,544 yards and 37 TDs with 10 interceptions and ran for 421 yards and 8 TDs, totaling 516 fantasy points, Allen is projected to score 549 fantasy points with the Bills. That makes him a valuable No. 1 QB for this squad.

  • Michael Gallup

Stretch Pick: Everyone, it seems, thinks they're the next fantasy expert nowadays, so there's no telling who inspired you to draft Gallup with the 4th pick of the 8th round, about 18 slots earlier than his ADP of 120. Granted, you could be onto something. Projected to score 231 fantasy points this season with the Cowboys, he appears poised to take a step forward from last year when he recorded 59 catches for 843 yards and 5 TDs, earning 173 fantasy points. Based on projections, Gallup will slot in as the No. 4 WR for Roughnecks to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • With only three defenses off the board, Roughnecks saw a run on the horizon and jumped in early, taking Indianapolis with the 179th overall pick. In the round that followed, five more defensive units went off the board.

  • If you're not first, you're last, so good thing you were first. You got the jump on your opponents at tight end, drafting Travis Kelce (No. 18 overall) as the first TE off the board.

  • Roughnecks face a difficult challenge in Week 7 when they have six players on a bye, led by Josh Allen, Kirk Cousins, and JuJu Smith-Schuster. Hangovers, your Week 7 opponent, won't be quite as short-handed with only one player (Amari Cooper) getting the week off.

  • According to projections, Roughnecks face one of the lightest schedules in OklahomIraqis League NFC this season with a strength of schedule that ranks as the 3rd easiest.

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..."
