Led by a Pair of Cowboys, Matthew's Splendid Team Will be a Tough Team to Beat

Draft Summary

Although they ended up with the No. 12 overall selection, Matthew's Splendid Team didn't flinch, building a roster capable of beating any team in Eat My Cecil Shorts. After picking up multiple Cowboys in the early rounds (CeeDee Lamb and Dak Prescott), Matthew's Splendid Team are projected to finish with a record of 12-2 (2,279 points), good enough for 2nd.

  • Saquon Barkley

Most Improved

Of all the offensive picks by Matthew's Splendid Team, Barkley is expected to demonstrate the most improvement over last year. After a season in which he accumulated 34 yards on 19 carries in 2 games, totaling 12 fantasy points, Barkley is projected to score 287 fantasy points with the Giants, a 2,216% gain. That makes him a valuable No. 1 RB for this squad.

  • Sony Michel

Reach Pick

You may have been a bit overeager when deciding to draft Michel at No. 85, about 23 slots earlier than his ADP of 108. Granted, you may be onto something. Projected to score 99 fantasy points this season with the Rams, he appears poised to outperform last year when he ran 79 times for 449 yards and 1 TD over 8 games to post 72 fantasy points. Based on projections, Michel will slot in as the No. 4 RB for Matthew's Splendid Team to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • Week 7 will bring on a case of the Bye Week Blues for Matthew's Splendid Team, as they have six players on a bye, led by Dak Prescott, Stefon Diggs, and CeeDee Lamb. On the bright side, your Week 7 opponent -- DMONEY -- will also be facing their worst bye week with six players getting the week off.

  • With a strength of schedule ranked as the 2nd-easiest based on projected records, Matthew's Splendid Team have drawn one of the least daunting schedules in Eat My Cecil Shorts this season.

  • Matthew's Splendid Team have drafted a potent collection of players from top to bottom. Collectively, the top players from each position are slated to score the 3rd-highest point total in the league. Stars-and-Scrubs? Nah, more like Stars-and-Stars, as the rest of the roster is predicted to combine for a point total ranking 2nd.

  • In spite of an unfilled slot at WR in the 7th round, Matthew's Splendid Team selected RB Ronald Jones II at No. 84, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a more important position. They were the third-to-last 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..."
