With a Projected Finish of Ninth, Michael Wacha Aren't Exactly a Team That Can Win

Draft Summary

Michael Wacha can attribute this poor performance to their late draft position after drafting in the bottom half of the first round (No. 7 overall). With a projected record of 5-8 (2,033 points), this team won't scare anyone. Michael Wacha are predicted to finish 9th in Michael Wacha Fantasy Impact.

  • Drew Brees

Best Pick

What an outstanding mid-round value for Michael Wacha, who got Brees at No. 103, about three rounds later than his ADP of 70. Following a season in which he threw for 3,992 yards and 32 TDs with 5 INTs, totaling 337 fantasy points, Brees is projected to score 349 fantasy points with the Saints. That makes him a valuable No. 1 QB for this squad.

  • Derrius Guice

Going out on a Limb

Everyone thinks they're the next Brad Evans nowadays, so there's no telling who inspired you to choose Guice in the 8th round, about 13 slots earlier than his ADP of 103. Guice is projected to score 165 fantasy points this season with the Redskins. Guice will slot in as the No. 4 RB for Michael Wacha, according to projections.

Draft Notes

  • With only two kickers off the board, Michael Wacha saw a run looming and got in early, taking Harrison Butker in the 14th round. Four more kickers were snatched up in the ensuing round.

  • Week 6 will bring a tough task for Michael Wacha, as they have four players on a bye (Josh Allen, Tyrell Williams, Jalen Richard, and David Montgomery). Perhaps leveling the playing field, Go Global, your Week 6 opponent, will be facing a similar conundrum with three players (T.Y. Hilton, LeSean McCoy, and Adam Vinatieri) on a bye week.

  • With a second-half strength of schedule rated as the 2nd-most difficult according to projections, Michael Wacha have one of the hardest schedules late in the season in Michael Wacha Fantasy Impact. Despite that, for the season as a whole, Michael Wacha face a pretty fair path that rates as the 9th hardest.

  • In spite of unfilled slots at QB, WR, and TE in the 4th round, Michael Wacha selected RB David Montgomery at No. 42, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a position of higher importance. 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..."
