Laden with WR Talent, Butt Plugs Have a Legit Squad

Draft Summary

Turning a bottom-half draft slot into top-half results is the sign of a great effort by the GM. Such was the case with Butt Plugs, which flipped its No. 10 overall pick into a projected 4th-place finish in Eat My Cecil Shorts. The team is notably deep at the receiver position, as Calvin Ridley, Chris Godwin, and Diontae Johnson are expected to combine for the 3rd-highest point total of all starting WR groups in the league. Butt Plugs are predicted to put up a total of 2,254 points based on the current roster, which would result in a 10-4 record.

  • Kenny Golladay

Most Improved

The WR is expected to demonstrate the most improvement over last year of all the offensive players selected by Butt Plugs. After a season in which he recorded 20 catches for 338 yards and 2 TDs in 5 games, totaling 56 fantasy points, Golladay is projected to score 198 fantasy points with the Giants, a 256% jump. That makes him the No. 5 WR for this squad.

  • Jamaal Williams

Regression Candidate

There were 17 players chosen by Butt Plugs, and Williams is slated to take the biggest step back from last year among the players on the offensive side of the ball. He's basically the anti-Kenny Golladay in that respect. After a season in which he ran for 505 yards and 2 TDs and recorded 31 catches for 236 yards and 1 TD over 14 games, totaling 112 fantasy points, Williams is projected to score 95 fantasy points with the Lions, a 15% reduction. That makes him the No. 5 RB for this squad.

Draft Notes

  • Patience is a virtue. You were the last manager in the league to draft a quarterback and tight end with Baker Mayfield (No. 111 overall) and Hunter Henry (No. 135 overall).

  • Week 14 could be a tough challenge for Butt Plugs, as they have four players on a bye (Jonathan Taylor, Miles Sanders, Hunter Henry, and Marlon Mack). Your Week 14 opponent, The Dead Horse, won't be nearly as short-handed with only two players (Michael Pittman Jr. and New England) on a bye week.

  • Going off projections, Butt Plugs have one of the most challenging schedules late in the season in Eat My Cecil Shorts with a second-half strength of schedule rated as the 3rd-most difficult. Despite that, for the season as a whole, Butt Plugs face a pretty fair path that rates as the 8th hardest.

  • Even with unfilled slots at QB and TE in the 6th round, Butt Plugs selected RB Darrell Henderson Jr. with the 63rd pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a more important position. They were the third 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..."
