After a Few Too Many Stretches, Pete Alonso Have a Great Team if the Goal is to Finish Dead Last

Draft Summary

It's going to be a long year if Pete Alonso deals with pressure during the season the way they did in this draft. Picking No. 10 overall, they were clearly not ready. Pete Alonso are predicted to finish 9th in Pete Alonso Fantasy Impact with a record of 4-9 (1,992 points).

  • Carlos Hyde

Biggest Steal

Pete Alonso notched an outstanding late-round value in selecting Hyde in the 16th round, about six rounds later than his ADP of 124. Following a season in which he rushed for 571 yards and 5 TDs and caught 10 passes for 33 yards in 14 games, totaling 98 fantasy points, Hyde is projected to score 100 fantasy points with the Chiefs. That makes him a valuable No. 4 RB for this squad.

  • Lamar Jackson

Stretch Pick

You might have gotten a bit too excited when making the decision to select Jackson in the 8th round, about 25 slots earlier than his ADP of 112. You may be onto something, though. Projected to score 316 fantasy points this season with the Ravens, he looks set to beat his rookie year when he threw for 1,201 yards and 6 TDs with 3 interceptions and ran for 695 yards and 5 TDs to post 164 fantasy points. According to projections, Jackson will slot in as the No. 1 QB for Pete Alonso to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • Pete Alonso seem especially light at running back, taking fewer than any team in the league with just four, lagging the league average of 5.6.

  • Week 10 could be a rude awakening for Pete Alonso, as they have seven players on a bye, led by Tom Brady, Julian Edelman, and Alshon Jeffery. The Syndergaardians, your Week 10 opponent, won't be quite as encumbered with only one player (Courtland Sutton) getting the week off.

  • With a strength of schedule rated as the 2nd-most difficult according to projections, Pete Alonso have one of the most daunting schedules in Pete Alonso Fantasy Impact this season. But all is not lost. You can't control strength of schedule, but you can control your team. Fantasy football rewards those owners who put in the work, so be sure to monitor the essential handcuffs for your top players.

  • In spite of unfilled slots at QB and TE in the 5th round, Pete Alonso chose WR Alshon Jeffery with the 58th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position rather than a position of higher need.

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..."
