Led by a Pair of Bengals, Jake Odorizzi Have a Great Team if the Goal is to Finish Dead Last

Draft Summary

Despite earning the No. 4 overall pick, Jake Odorizzi drafted a roster that will struggle to earn wins. Opponents could enjoy defeating them with regularity, as this team is projected to finish 10th in Jake Odorizzi Fantasy Impact. Behind multiple Bengals in the early rounds (Joe Mixon and Tyler Boyd), Jake Odorizzi are predicted to have a record of 3-10 (1,900 points).

  • Kalen Ballage

Best Pick

What a late-round bargain for Jake Odorizzi, who picked up Ballage with the 9th pick in the 14th round, about four rounds later than his ADP of 124. After a rookie season in which he accumulated 191 yards and 1 TD on 36 carries in 12 games, totaling 38 fantasy points, Ballage is projected to score 93 fantasy points with the Dolphins. That makes him a valuable No. 4 RB for this squad.

  • Dede Westbrook

Going out on a Limb

Are you willing to reveal your source? We'd love to hear what prompted the selection of Westbrook in the 7th round, about 30 spots earlier than his ADP of 106. You might be onto something, though. Projected to score 196 fantasy points this season with the Jaguars, he looks poised to improve upon last year when he snagged 66 passes for 717 yards and 5 TDs, posting 180 fantasy points. Westbrook will slot in as the No. 5 WR for Jake Odorizzi, according to projected points.

Draft Notes

  • Better late than never. You became the last owner in the league to draft a tight end with your selection of Trey Burton (No. 124 overall).

  • Week 10 could be a rude awakening for Jake Odorizzi, as they have five players on a bye (DeAndre Hopkins, Tom Brady, Dede Westbrook, Royce Freeman, and Denver). Your Week 10 opponent, Thielen’s Cousin, will have three players (Carson Wentz, Julian Edelman, and Miles Sanders) on a bye.

  • Based on projected records, Jake Odorizzi have a tough path in Jake Odorizzi Fantasy Impact this season with a strength of schedule ranked as the most difficult. All is not lost, though. You can't control strength of schedule, but you can control the work you put in. There are infinite methods to improve over the course of the season as long as you remain active.

  • Even with openings at QB and TE in the 5th round, Jake Odorizzi selected WR Tyler Boyd with the 52nd pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a position of higher need. They were the second squad to fill a flex position.

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..."
