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

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.
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.
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 1
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.
Maybe Allen Will Surprise
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 2, Pick 20
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Keenan Allen was the weakest value pick of the round.
Haters Gonna Hate
- Mark Ingram, RB
- Round 3, Pick 21
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.
Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law
- Jordan Reed, TE
- Round 5, Pick 41
Jordan Reed is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 89 projected catches rank 10th in the league.
It's a Bold Strategy Cotton, Let's See if it Pays Off
- Blake Bortles, QB
- Round 6, Pick 60
Blake Bortles has an ADP of only 78.3 across all Yahoo! leagues, and wasn't quite worth the 60th overall pick.
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
- Robbie Gould
- Rank 231, ADP 142
- Randy Bullock
- Rank 237, ADP 148

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.
