If you can't handle the heat, get out of the draft room. Horsepaste Eaters wilted under the pressure of this draft. Picking No. 9 overall, they were clearly overmatched. Behind multiple Chiefs in the early rounds (Tyreek Hill and Patrick Mahomes), Horsepaste Eaters are predicted to finish 11th in Eat My Cecil Shorts with a record of 3-11 (2,179 points).
- Jamison Crowder
Horsepaste Eaters netted a nice late-round value with the pick of Crowder at No. 160, about three rounds later than his ADP of 129. Following a season in which he grabbed 59 balls for 699 yards and 6 TDs in 12 games, totaling 143 fantasy points, Crowder is projected to score 182 fantasy points with the Jets. That makes him the No. 5 WR for this squad.
- Corey Davis
Going out on a Limb
Are you willing to reveal your source? We'd love to know what prompted you to draft Davis with the 4th pick of the 8th round, about 23 picks earlier than his ADP of 111. You may be onto something, though. Projected to score 203 fantasy points this season with the Jets, he seems poised to top last year when he caught 65 balls for 984 yards and 5 TDs over 14 games, earning 159 fantasy points. Based on projections, Davis will slot in as the No. 3 WR for Horsepaste Eaters to begin the season.
Horsepaste Eaters seem particularly thin at running back, selecting the fewest of any team in the league with just three, trailing the league average of 5.
If you're not first, you're last, so good thing you were first. You got out in front of your opponents at quarterback, drafting Patrick Mahomes (No. 16 overall) as the first QB off the board. You exhibited more patience at running back, becoming the last manager in the league to draft a RB with the selection of Mike Davis (No. 57 overall).
Horsepaste Eaters are in for a rude awakening in Week 6 when they have seven players on a bye, led by Matt Ryan, Mike Davis, and Corey Davis. Butt Plugs, your Week 6 opponent, will have three players (Jameis Winston, Calvin Ridley, and Deebo Samuel) getting the week off.
With a second-half strength of schedule ranked as the 2nd-easiest based on projected records, Horsepaste Eaters have one of the lightest schedules late in the season in Eat My Cecil Shorts. Despite that, for the full season, Horsepaste Eaters face a fairly balanced path rated as the 6th hardest.

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.
