Buoyed by a Slew of Value Picks, Preying Falcon Fan Will Battle Every Week

Draft Summary

What's the sign of a great GM? Turning a bottom-half draft slot into top-half results. Such was the case with Preying Falcon Fan, which flipped its No. 7 overall pick into a projected 6th-place finish in Eat My Cecil Shorts. Preying Falcon Fan are predicted to put up a total of 2,228 points based on the current roster, which would result in an 8-6 record.

  • Nelson Agholor

Best Pick

Preying Falcon Fan notched an outstanding late-round bargain when they chose Agholor with the 6th pick of the 16th round, about five rounds later than his ADP of 129. Coming off a season in which he caught 48 balls for 896 yards and 8 TDs, totaling 162 fantasy points, Agholor is projected to score 188 fantasy points with the Patriots. That makes him the No. 5 WR for this squad.

  • AJ Dillon

Going out on a Limb

Are you friends with Denzel Washington? Because you must have had an "Inside Man" telling you to draft Dillon in the 7th round, about 24 spots earlier than his ADP of 103. Then again, maybe you're onto something? Projected to score 122 fantasy points this season with the Packers, he appears poised to beat his rookie year when he carried 46 times for 242 yards and 2 TDs over 9 games to post 39 fantasy points. Based on projected points, Dillon will slot in as the No. 3 RB for Preying Falcon Fan to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • Preying Falcon Fan face a tough task in Week 13 when they have four players on a bye (Aaron Jones, A.J. Brown, Terrace Marshall Jr., and AJ Dillon). Fortunately, your Week 13 opponent, Butt Plugs, will be confronting a similar struggle with three players (Baker Mayfield, Anthony Firkser, and Cleveland) on a bye week.

  • With a first-half strength of schedule that ranks as the 3rd-most difficult according to projections, Preying Falcon Fan have one of the toughest schedules early on in Eat My Cecil Shorts. Despite that, for the full season, Preying Falcon Fan should expect a pretty fair schedule that rates as the 4th toughest.

  • Preying Falcon Fan seem to have prioritized experience over youth, assembling a lineup with an average of 5.3 years of NFL experience, ranking as the 3rd-oldest group in the league. Even so, they still selected one rookie (Terrace Marshall Jr.). In total, there were 14 rookies selected over the course of the Eat My Cecil Shorts draft.

  • Despite an offensive opening at QB in the 7th round, Preying Falcon Fan selected RB AJ Dillon at No. 79, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a higher leverage 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..."
