Led by a Stellar WR Corps, Come on Blue Will Run This League

Draft Summary

All that time spent doing fantasy football research instead of actual work wasn't a waste of time after all, as Come on Blue is projected to finish in first place in Olson/Donoghue Football League with a record of 12-1-1 (1,473 points). They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Antonio Brown (first round), Keenan Allen (second round), and Eric Decker (fourth round). These players will be heavily relied upon by Come on Blue, as they are the top group of WRs in the league.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.

Keeper Summary

Come on Blue decided to disregard their only keeper spot, instead leaving their fantasy fate solely in the hands of the draft.

Schedule

Come on Blue should just disappear for a while during Week 11. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. Along with having the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Come on Blue has the easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    At three different positions, Come on Blue picked up projected top-two players (Antonio Brown, Denver, and Jordan Reed).

  • Up and Comers

    Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and Come on Blue may have done just that, with four players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.

  • AARP Card's in the Mail

    With an average of 6.8 years of NFL experience, Come on Blue is the team most likely to have a player qualify for a senior citizen discount.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the Come on Blue roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 2). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).

  • Putting Their Best Foot Forward

    Come on Blue knows this isn't European football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • A Dominating Pair

    Come on Blue has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Antonio Brown and Mark Ingram) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 1
    Ambitious Antonio

    Come on Blue fully endorses the wideout's quest for 150 receptions in 2016. Shoot for the moon, Mr. Brown. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    Maybe Allen Will Surprise

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, Keenan Allen was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • Mark Ingram, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 21
    Haters Gonna Hate

    The rest of Olson/Donoghue Football League overlooked a gem, and Come on Blue made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Mark Ingram.

    • Jordan Reed, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 41
    Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law

    Jordan Reed is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 89 projected catches rank 10th in the league.

    • Blake Bortles, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 60
    It's a Bold Strategy Cotton, Let's See if it Pays Off

    Blake Bortles has an ADP of only 78.3 across all Yahoo! leagues, and wasn't quite worth the 60th overall pick.

Best Available

Come on Blue is projected to have a pair of subpar positions (K and QB), but K is clearly their weakest unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.

    • Cairo Santos
    • Rank 220, ADP 142
    • Chandler Catanzaro
    • Rank 222, ADP 140

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..."
