Having the first pick in the draft doesn't guarantee a championship. In this case, however, it very well could. Dirty Dogs did what top-flight fantasy managers do when they land the No. 1 overall pick. They constructed a juggernaut. The team is especially talented at running back, as Christian McCaffrey and Myles Gaskin are expected to combine for the highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. Dirty Dogs are projected to finish in first place in OklahomIraqis League PFC with a mark of 11-2 (2,752 points).
- Lamar Jackson
Biggest Steal: What a nice mid-round value for Dirty Dogs, who got Jackson at No. 84, about three rounds later than his ADP of 42. Following a season in which he threw for 2,757 yards and 26 TDs with 9 INTs and racked up 1,005 yards and 7 TDs, totaling 412 fantasy points, Jackson is projected to score 478 fantasy points with the Ravens. That makes him a valuable No. 1 QB for this squad.
- DJ Chark Jr.
Reach Pick: Either you know something nobody else does or you got a bit carried away with the choice of Chark Jr. in the 7th round, about 27 picks earlier than his ADP of 112. Granted, you could be onto something. Projected to score 232 fantasy points this season with the Jaguars, he appears poised to improve on last year when he snagged 56 balls for 722 yards and 5 TDs in 14 games to earn 154 fantasy points. Chark Jr. will slot in as the No. 5 WR for Dirty Dogs, according to projections.
With four quarterbacks already off the board, Dirty Dogs foresaw a run looming and jumped in early, taking Lamar Jackson in the 6th round. Six more quarterbacks went in the round that followed.
Dirty Dogs face a tough task in Week 7 when they have five players on a bye (Keenan Allen, CeeDee Lamb, DJ Chark Jr., Greg Zuerlein, and Buffalo). Team Tadlock, your Week 7 opponent, won't be quite as encumbered with only two players (Adam Thielen and JuJu Smith-Schuster) getting the week off.
According to projections, Dirty Dogs face one of the least challenging schedules in OklahomIraqis League PFC this season with a strength of schedule ranked as the 2nd easiest.
Dirty Dogs have assembled a fairly young squad with an average of 4 years of NFL experience, ranking as the 4th-youngest group in the league. Demonstrating their commitment to youth, they selected two rookies (Chuba Hubbard and Zach Wilson), the 4th-highest total of first-year players in the league. In total, there were 22 rookies selected over the course of the OklahomIraqis League PFC draft.
Bars above zero indicate a pick was selected later than a player's ADP. Bars below zero show players that were taken earlier than their ADP.

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.
