Behind a Terrific Group of RBs, Derrick's Quality Team are a Team to Watch

Draft Summary

Derrick's Quality Team turned a solid draft slot (No. 2 overall) into a modest performance. With Dalvin Cook and Antonio Gibson slated to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league, Derrick's Quality Team are projected to finish 9-6 (2,072 points), which would place them 4th in Yahoo Public 1024821.

  • Corey Davis

Biggest Steal

What a great late-round value for Derrick's Quality Team, who selected Davis in the 15th round, about three rounds later than his ADP of 124. Coming off a season in which he caught 65 balls for 984 yards and 5 TDs in 14 games, totaling 159 fantasy points, Davis is projected to score 196 fantasy points with the Jets. That makes him a valuable No. 2 WR for this squad.

  • Logan Thomas

Going out on a Limb

You may have gotten a bit ahead of yourself when making the decision to draft Thomas with the 2nd pick of the 7th round, about three rounds earlier than his ADP of 100. Projected to score 136 fantasy points this season with the Football Team, he'll attempt to match last year when he hauled in 72 balls for 670 yards and 6 TDs to earn 141 fantasy points. Thomas will slot in as the No. 1 TE for Derrick's Quality Team, based on projected points.

Draft Notes

  • If you're not first, you're last. You got out ahead of your opponents at quarterback, drafting Patrick Mahomes (No. 19 overall) as the first QB off the board. You were more patient at wide receiver, becoming the last manager in the league to draft a WR with the selection of Julio Jones (No. 39 overall).

  • Derrick's Quality Team are in for a rude awakening in Week 9 when they have four players on a bye (Antonio Gibson, Antonio Brown, Logan Thomas, and Tampa Bay). Your Week 9 opponent, Team 1, will have a full squad without any players on a bye.

  • Going off projected records, Derrick's Quality Team have drawn one of the most coveted schedules in Yahoo Public 1024821 this season with a strength of schedule rated as the 2nd easiest.

  • In spite of offensive openings at WR and TE in the 5th round, Derrick's Quality Team drafted RB Josh Jacobs with the 42nd pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a position of higher need. They were the second squad to fill a flex 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..."
