Slated for a Seventh-Place Finish, Goobers Probably Shouldn't Gloat About This Roster

Draft Summary

Which lasted longer: Anthony Scaramucci's role in the White House or any chances that Goobers could actually win this league? This team could be Mooching for wins all year, as they're projected to finish in seventh place with a record of 7-6-0 (1,921 points). The GM of Goobers obviously entered this draft knowing who their QB target was. They waited until the 11th round to pick their first quarterback, drafting Russell Wilson with the 132nd overall pick. They've ultimately got one of the weakest sets of WRs in the league, as they added T.Y. Hilton, DeSean Jackson, Brandon Marshall, and Larry Fitzgerald.

You're close to greatness. And if being close isn't good enough for you, you might be worthy of the Toyota Hall of Fame. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Goobers can chalk up Week 11 as a loss. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have one of the least challenging schedules. Corresponding with the third-easiest overall schedule, Goobers also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Stockpiling Talent at TE

    Goobers should be in good shape with three position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE is definitely the strongest among them.

  • AARP Card Arriving Soon

    With an average of 8.1 years of NFL experience, Goobers is the team most likely to have a player qualify for a senior citizen discount.

  • Decently Mediocre

    While the bottom half of the Goobers roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 2), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).

  • A Dominating Pair

    Goobers has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (LeSean McCoy and T.Y. Hilton) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Low Floor, High Ceiling?

    Goobers grabbed a sleeper in James Conner with pick No. 156.

  • Put All Your Eggs in One Basket

    And then watch that basket. Ignoring roster depth, Goobers chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

Player Analysis

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 12
    Advanced Math

    If Goobers had a nickel for every time LeSean McCoy is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 277 nickels.

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    A Threat in the Modern Age, Similar to "Beliebers"

    TE is the new secret weapon in the NFL, and Rob Gronkowski leads the way with 211 projected fantasy points.

    • T.Y. Hilton, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 37
    Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, Goobers got a steal in the fourth round, when they selected T.Y. Hilton (37th overall pick vs. ADP of 23.6).

    • L. Fitzgerald, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 60
    Climbing The Ladder

    Currently in ninth place with 14,389 career receiving yards, Fitzgerald is just 904 yards away from moving all the way up to third place all-time. Only five WRs (Evans, Nelson, Brown, Cooper, Hilton) appeared on more championship rosters last season.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 61
    A Bit of a Reach

    Goobers went out on a limb with their sixth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Brandon Marshall has an ADP of 93.1, but he was grabbed at pick No. 61. Patience is a virtue, Goobers.

Best Available

There are three positions that Goobers could look to improve, including DEF and RB, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • New York Defense
    • Rank 159, ADP 123
    • Carolina Defense
    • Rank 161, ADP 108
    • Rex Burkhead
    • Rank 124, ADP 124
    • Jamaal Williams
    • Rank 181, ADP 128

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..."
