Behind a Terrific Group of RBs, Mike's Impressive Team Will be a Tough Team

Draft Summary

Although they drew the No. 7 overall selection, Mike's Impressive Team didn't let it get them down, building a roster capable of beating any team in Yahoo Public 1024821. The team is especially strong at running back, as Jonathan Taylor and D'Andre Swift are slated to combine for the 3rd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. Mike's Impressive Team are projected to finish with a record of 11-4 (2,053 points), good enough for 3rd.

  • Noah Fant

Best Pick

What a nice late-round value for Mike's Impressive Team, who got Fant at No. 114, about four rounds later than his ADP of 77. After a season in which he snagged 62 balls for 673 yards and 3 TDs in 14 games, totaling 118 fantasy points, Fant is projected to score 168 fantasy points with the Broncos. That makes him a valuable No. 1 TE for this squad.

  • Chris Carson

Going out on a Limb

Do you know something we don't? We're not sure why else you would select Carson at No. 27, about 11 picks earlier than his ADP of 38. Granted, you might be onto something. Projected to score 227 fantasy points this season with the Seahawks, he seems set to improve on last year when he rushed for 761 yards and 7 TDs and had 40 catches for 307 yards and 4 TDs over 13 games, earning 169 fantasy points. Carson will slot in as the No. 3 RB for Mike's Impressive Team, according to projections.

Draft Notes

  • Better late than never. With the selection of TE Noah Fant (No. 114 overall), you became the last manager in the league to draft a tight end.

  • Week 7 could present a difficult task for Mike's Impressive Team, as they have three players on a bye (Adam Thielen, James Robinson, and Buffalo). Fear not: your Week 7 opponent, Team 1, will be facing a similar quandary with three players (Josh Allen, Chase Claypool, and Zack Moss) on a bye week.

  • With a first-half strength of schedule ranked as the most difficult based on projections, Mike's Impressive Team have an uphill battle early in the season in Yahoo Public 1024821. Despite that, for the season as a whole, Mike's Impressive Team have drawn a pretty fair schedule ranked as the 5th hardest.

  • In spite of open slots at QB and TE in the 5th round, Mike's Impressive Team drafted RB D'Andre Swift with the 47th 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..."
