Projected to Finish Sixth, Steven Matz Will be a Tough Team

Draft Summary

The sign of a great GM? Turning a bottom-half draft slot into top-half results. Such was the case with Steven Matz, which flipped its No. 9 overall pick into a projected 6th-place finish in Steven Matz Fantasy Impact. Steven Matz are predicted to put up a total of 2,048 points based on the current roster, which would result in a 7-6 record.

  • Nyheim Hines

Best Pick

Steven Matz netted a great late-round bargain when they selected Hines at No. 160, about three rounds later than his ADP of 126. Following a rookie season in which he rushed for 314 yards and 2 TDs and recorded 63 receptions for 425 yards and 2 TDs, totaling 161 fantasy points, Hines is projected to score 215 fantasy points with the Colts. That makes him a valuable No. 4 RB for this squad.

  • Geronimo Allison

Reach Pick

There are thousands of self-declared fantasy experts these days, so there's no telling what led you to select Allison at No. 112, about 14 spots earlier than his ADP of 126. Then again, maybe you're onto something? Projected to score 85 fantasy points this season with the Packers, he appears set to take a step forward from last year when he recorded 20 catches for 303 yards and 2 TDs over 5 games to post 62 fantasy points. Based on projected points, Allison will slot in as the No. 5 WR for Steven Matz to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • Week 6 could bring on a case of the Bye Week Blues for Steven Matz, as they have four players on a bye (Tarik Cohen, Nyheim Hines, Allen Robinson II, and Andrew Luck). Your Week 6 opponent, Zach's Tip-Top Team, won't be nearly as encumbered with only two players (Mitchell Trubisky and Anthony Miller) getting the week off.

  • With a first-half strength of schedule ranked as the 3rd-most difficult based on projections, Steven Matz have one of the toughest schedules in the early-going in Steven Matz Fantasy Impact. In spite of that, for the season as a whole, Steven Matz should expect a pretty fair schedule that rates as the 6th toughest.

  • Steven Matz seem to be counting on veteran leadership, putting together a lineup with an average of 5.4 years of NFL experience, ranking as the 3rd-oldest group in the league. Despite that, they still selected one rookie (Damien Harris). In total, there were 17 rookies selected over the course of the Steven Matz Fantasy Impact draft.

  • Despite an unfilled slot at QB in the 6th round, Steven Matz drafted WR Tyler Boyd with the 64th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a position of higher importance.

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..."
