Headlined by a Terrific Group of RBs, EST Have the Studs to Reach Playoffs

Draft Summary

EST parlayed a solid draft slot (No. 2 overall) into a modest performance. The team is particularly strong at running back, as Dalvin Cook and Chris Carson are slated to combine for the 3rd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. EST are projected to finish 8-6 (2,258 points), which would place them 5th in Eat My Cecil Shorts.

  • DeVante Parker

Biggest Steal

EST scored a great late-round bargain with the selection of Parker in the 14th round, about three rounds later than his ADP of 129. After a season in which he caught 73 passes for 903 yards and 4 TDs, totaling 135 fantasy points, Parker is projected to score 177 fantasy points with the Dolphins. That makes him a valuable No. 4 WR for this squad.

  • Damien Harris

Stretch Pick

You must have had an inside man when deciding to draft Harris with the 2nd pick of the 5th round, about 18 spots earlier than his ADP of 68. Then again, maybe you're onto something? Projected to score 202 fantasy points this season with the Patriots, he looks set to take a step forward from last year when he carried 137 times for 691 yards and 2 TDs over 10 games to earn 89 fantasy points. According to projections, Harris will slot in as the No. 3 RB for EST to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • Week 7 will be a rude awakening for EST, as they have five players on a bye (Josh Allen, Dalvin Cook, Chase Claypool, Gabriel Davis, and Alexander Mattison). Your Week 7 opponent, Butt Plugs, won't be nearly as hamstrung with only one player (Diontae Johnson) on a bye.

  • With a first-half strength of schedule rated as the 2nd-easiest according to projections, EST have one of the lightest schedules early in the season in Eat My Cecil Shorts. Despite that, for the full season, EST should expect a fairly balanced schedule rated as the 9th hardest.

  • With the 2nd-youngest group in the league at an average of 4.4 years of NFL experience, EST are trying to catch lightning in a bottle. Despite that, they didn't select any of the 14 rookies drafted.

  • In spite of unfilled positions at WR and TE in the 5th round, EST chose RB Damien Harris with the 50th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a position of higher importance. They were the earliest squad to make their first flex pick.

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..."
