Led by a Pair of Panthers, DMONEY are Built to Win

Draft Summary

Blessed with the top pick, DMONEY had an exceptional performance. After picking up multiple Panthers in the early rounds (Christian McCaffrey and DJ Moore), DMONEY are predicted to finish 3rd in Eat My Cecil Shorts with a record of 11-3 (2,313 points).

  • Christian McCaffrey

Most Improved

Of all the offensive selections by DMONEY, McCaffrey is slated to take the biggest jump from last year. Coming off a season in which he rushed for 225 yards and 5 TDs and hauled in 17 balls for 149 yards and 1 TD in 3 games, totaling 82 fantasy points, McCaffrey is projected to score 407 fantasy points with the Panthers, a 397% improvement. That makes him a valuable No. 1 RB for this squad.

  • Mike Williams

Reach Pick

You may have gotten a little ahead of yourself when making the decision to draft Williams with the 12th pick in the 8th round, about two rounds earlier than his ADP of 122. Maybe you're onto something, though. Projected to score 203 fantasy points this season with the Chargers, he seems poised to surpass last year when he grabbed 48 balls for 756 yards and 5 TDs over 14 games to post 130 fantasy points. Based on projected points, Williams will slot in as the No. 3 WR for DMONEY to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • Week 7 could bring on a case of the Bye Week Blues for DMONEY, as they have six players on a bye, led by Justin Jefferson, Mike Williams, and Laviska Shenault Jr.. On the bright side, your Week 7 opponent -- Matthew's Splendid Team -- will also be confronting their worst bye week with six players getting the week off.

  • With a strength of schedule that rates as the easiest based on projected records, DMONEY won't face too many speed bumps in Eat My Cecil Shorts this season. Don't be mistaken, though, your work has just begun. If you don't give your team the attention it needs, even soft schedules can become tricky at any time.

  • With an average of 4.5 years of NFL experience, ranking in the middle of the pack for the league, DMONEY seem to be counting on veteran leadership to rein in youthful exuberance. To emphasize that moderation, they didn't pick any of the 14 rookies drafted.

  • Even with offensive openings at WR and TE in the 6th round, DMONEY chose RB Chase Edmonds with the 72nd pick, 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..."
