Led by a Pair of Ravens, The Dharma Swans Crushed this Draft

Draft Summary

After receiving an advantageous draft slot (No. 5 overall), The Dharma Swans had a wonderful performance. After picking up multiple Ravens in the early rounds (Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews), The Dharma Swans are predicted to finish 1st in Eat My Cecil Shorts with a mark of 12-2 (2,289 points).

  • Michael Thomas

Best Pick

The Dharma Swans netted a tremendous late-round value with the selection of Thomas with the 8th pick in the 14th round, about six rounds later than his ADP of 102. Following a season in which he had 40 receptions for 438 yards in 7 games, totaling 64 fantasy points, Thomas is projected to score 169 fantasy points with the Saints. That makes him the No. 6 WR for this squad.

  • James Robinson

Going out on a Limb

Are you willing to reveal your source? We'd love to learn what prompted you to choose Robinson at No. 29, about 25 slots earlier than his ADP of 54. Projected to score 219 fantasy points this season with the Jaguars, he'll attempt to perform similarly to his rookie year when he ran for 1,118 yards and 7 TDs and caught 54 passes for 366 yards and 3 TDs, earning 226 fantasy points. According to projected points, Robinson will slot in as the No. 2 RB for The Dharma Swans to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • Week 14 could bring on a case of the Bye Week Blues for The Dharma Swans, as they have four players on a bye (Carson Wentz, Jakobi Meyers, Jason Sanders, and Indianapolis). Preying Falcon Fan, your Week 14 opponent, won't be nearly as hamstrung with only one player (Nelson Agholor) getting the week off.

  • With a strength of schedule that ranks as the 3rd-easiest based on projections, The Dharma Swans have drawn one of the most coveted schedules in Eat My Cecil Shorts this season.

  • The Dharma Swans seem to be balancing both youth and experience, compiling a squad with an average of 4.6 years of NFL experience, ranking in the middle of the pack for the league. As an example of that moderation, they didn't pick any of the 14 rookies drafted.

  • In spite of an opening at WR in the 6th round, The Dharma Swans chose RB Raheem Mostert at No. 68, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position rather than a more important 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..."
