In Spite of a Few Value Picks, Kyle Gibson are Good Enough to Barely Miss Playoffs

Draft Summary

Kyle Gibson are no super team, but they could potentially sneak into the playoffs if they get a few breaks. After picking No. 12 overall, the team is projected to land in 7th place in Kyle Gibson Fantasy Impact. Kyle Gibson are in store for a mark of 7-6 (2,060 points) with the current roster.

  • Golden Tate

Best Pick

Kyle Gibson notched a great late-round value in choosing Tate in the 14th round, about four rounds later than his ADP of 121. Coming off a season in which he snagged 74 balls for 795 yards and 4 TDs, totaling 183 fantasy points, Tate is projected to score 124 fantasy points with the Giants. That makes him the No. 7 WR for this squad.

  • Kirk Cousins

Stretch Pick

You must know something nobody else does. There's no other reason for drafting Cousins at No. 109, about 17 slots earlier than his ADP of 126. Then again, perhaps you're onto something. Projected to score 333 fantasy points this season with the Vikings, he looks poised to take a step forward from last year when he threw for 4,298 yards and 30 TDs with 10 INTs, totaling 313 fantasy points. According to projections, Cousins will slot in as the No. 1 QB for Kyle Gibson to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • Week 12 will be a rude awakening for Kyle Gibson, as they have four players on a bye (Kirk Cousins, Mike Williams, Christian Kirk, and Kansas City). Your Week 12 opponent, Omaha Vikings, won't be quite as short-handed with only two players (Tyreek Hill and Adam Thielen) on the sideline.

  • Kyle Gibson have one of the hardest schedules in Kyle Gibson Fantasy Impact this season according to projected records with a strength of schedule ranked as the 2nd-most difficult. That doesn't mean you're destined to lose, though. You can't control strength of schedule, but you can control the work you put in. Fantasy football rewards those who put in the work, so make sure to follow the latest news and hottest pick-ups.

  • Kyle Gibson seem to prioritize age before beauty, assembling a squad with an average of 5.9 years of NFL experience, ranking as the 3rd-oldest group in the league. Driving that point home, they didn't select any of the 16 rookies drafted.

  • Despite an opening at QB in the 6th round, Kyle Gibson selected WR Mike Williams with the 61st pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a position of greater importance.

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..."
