Well, a bad draft position led to an even worse draft. Picking seventh overall, Alshon Joffrey is projected to land in 12th place in Any Given Sunday League with a record of 1-12-0 (1,849 points). They obviously understand how important the running back position is in fantasy football. They used three of their first five picks on RBs Jordan Howard (second round), Dalvin Cook (third round), and C.J. Anderson (fifth round). These guys could be the key to the season for Alshon Joffrey, as they are a quality set of RBs.
Alshon Joffrey should use Week 9 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why do we park in a driveway but drive on a parkway? It will be better to think about that than to check fantasy football. They have seven players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the most daunting slates. Along with the second-most grueling overall schedule, both the first month and final month of the season project to be close to league-average in terms of difficulty for Alshon Joffrey.
A Dominating Duo
RB and QB are both projected to be really solid units for Alshon Joffrey.
I Keep Getting Older
And they stay the same age. Alshon Joffrey isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 4.1 years of NFL experience.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Alshon Joffrey will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 10, as their only TE (Zach Ertz) and only DEF (Philadelphia) will both be idle that week.
Put All Your Eggs in One Basket
And then watch that basket. Ignoring roster depth, Alshon Joffrey chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).
A Dominating Pair
Alshon Joffrey has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Mike Evans and Jordan Howard) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
A Versatile Combination
Duke Johnson Jr. can hurt opponents with his hands as well as his feet. He ranks second among RBs with 632 projected receiving yards.
- Mike Evans, WR
- Round 1, Pick 7
Second only to Jordy Nelson in receiving TDs last season, Evans appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than any other wide receiver.
Turn Up The Volume
- Jordan Howard, RB
- Round 2, Pick 18
With 287 touches, Jordan Howard is projected to rank seventh in the NFL in that category. Alshon Joffrey demands more!
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Dalvin Cook, RB
- Round 3, Pick 31
Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Dalvin Cook had less value than any other pick of the round.
Swiss Cheese D
- M. Bryant, WR
- Round 4, Pick 42
Martavis Bryant is a constant threat to find holes in the defense. He's projected to rack up 10.5 receiving TDs this year, third in the league.
Taking a Chance
- Doug Martin, RB
- Round 6, Pick 66
With their sixth-round pick, Alshon Joffrey threw caution to the wind. They took Doug Martin at pick number 66 despite an ADP of 102.3 across all Yahoo! leagues.
With four below-average positions on Alshon Joffrey, TE and DEF are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Eric Ebron
- Rank 117, ADP 127
- C.J. Fiedorowicz
- Rank 136, ADP 135
- New York Defense
- Rank 159, ADP 123
- Carolina Defense
- Rank 161, ADP 108

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.
