Uncle Charlie are not a team of destiny, but they could possibly reach the playoffs assuming things go their way. After picking No. 7 overall, the team is predicted to land in 8th place in Adam Wainwright Fantasy Impact. On a positive note, the team is notably deep at the wide receiver position, as Julio Jones and Stefon Diggs are slated to combine for the 3rd-highest point total of all starting WR groups in the league. Uncle Charlie are in store for a mark of 4-9 (1,986 points) with the current roster.
- Kareem Hunt
What a fantastic late-round bargain for Uncle Charlie, who selected Hunt with the 7th pick of the 15th round, about five rounds later than his ADP of 114. After a season in which he rushed for 824 yards and 7 TDs and had 26 catches for 378 yards and 7 TDs in 11 games, totaling 230 fantasy points, Hunt is projected to score 85 fantasy points with the Browns. That makes him a valuable No. 4 RB for this squad.
- Christian Kirk
Going out on a Limb
Are you friends with Denzel Washington? Because you must have had an "Inside Man" telling you to select Kirk in the 6th round, about 29 spots earlier than his ADP of 95. Granted, you might be onto something. Projected to score 186 fantasy points this season with the Cardinals, he looks poised to surpass his rookie year when he racked up 43 receptions for 590 yards and 3 TDs over 12 games to earn 124 fantasy points. Kirk will slot in as the No. 4 WR for Uncle Charlie, according to projected points.
Week 7 will be a tough challenge for Uncle Charlie, as they have four players on a bye (Jarvis Landry, Vance McDonald, James Washington, and Kareem Hunt). Tdelanty's Team, your Week 7 opponent, will be at full strength without any players on a bye.
Uncle Charlie face one of the most coveted schedules in Adam Wainwright Fantasy Impact this season based on projections with a strength of schedule that rates as the 3rd easiest.
Uncle Charlie must be counting on veteran leadership to rein in youthful exuberance, assembling a balanced roster with an average of 5.1 years of NFL experience, ranking in the middle of the pack for the league. They selected one rookie (Darwin Thompson). In total, there were 15 rookies selected over the course of the Adam Wainwright Fantasy Impact draft.
Even with open slots at QB and TE in the 5th round, Uncle Charlie chose RB Tevin Coleman with the 55th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a position of greater 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.
