Vacos Marinos are not a team for the ages, but they could possibly reach the playoffs assuming things break the right way. After picking No. 9 overall, the team is projected to land in 6th place in LA REVENTADORA. Vacos Marinos are in store for a mark of 7-6 (3,410 points) with the current roster.
- Evan Engram
Vacos Marinos scored an outstanding mid-round bargain with the pick of Engram at No. 92, about four rounds later than his ADP of 58. Following a season in which he had 45 catches for 577 yards and 3 TDs in 11 games, totaling 114 fantasy points, Engram is projected to score 166 fantasy points with the Giants. That makes him a valuable No. 1 TE for this squad.
- Cam Newton
Are you in a sharing mood? We'd love to hear what prompted the selection of Newton with the 9th pick of the 5th round, about three rounds earlier than his ADP of 77. Perhaps you're onto something, though. Projected to score 425 fantasy points this season with the Panthers, he seems set to surpass last year when he threw for 3,395 yards and 24 TDs with 13 interceptions and rushed for 488 yards and 4 TDs in 14 games, totaling 361 fantasy points. Based on projections, Newton will slot in as the No. 1 QB for Vacos Marinos to begin the season.
Vacos Marinos face a tough task in Week 11 when they have five players on a bye (Tennessee, Evan Engram, Blake Martinez, Bobby Wagner, and Ryan Succop). Your Week 11 opponent, Cougars, will have a full squad without any players on a bye week.
Vacos Marinos face an uphill battle in the late stages in LA REVENTADORA based on projections with a strength of schedule for the last three weeks ranked as the most difficult. In spite of that, for the season as a whole, Vacos Marinos have drawn a fairly balanced path ranked as the 6th toughest.
Whatever the plan going into the draft, it couldn't have involved putting together such a small group of top-line players, as Vacos Marinos drafted a group of players that might have more talent on the bench. As a group, the top players from each position are forecasted to tally the 3rd-fewest points in the league. The rest of the roster, fortunately, is predicted to pick up the slack and compile a point total that would rank 3rd.
In spite of an opening remaining at TE in the 7th round, Vacos Marinos drafted RB James White at No. 69, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a more important position. They were the second-to-last squad to make their first flex pick.

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.
