A masterful draft-day performance by the GM of Rodrigo's Team turned the No. 6 overall pick into a projected 3rd-place finish. After picking up multiple Falcons in the early rounds (Julio Jones and Matt Ryan), Rodrigo's Team are predicted to finish 9-4 (3,498 points) in LA REVENTADORA.
- Damien Williams
Of all the offensive picks by Rodrigo's Team, Williams seems poised to take the biggest jump from last year. Following a season in which he rushed for 256 yards and 4 TDs and recorded 23 receptions for 160 yards and 2 TDs in 12 games, totaling 99 fantasy points, Williams is projected to score 270 fantasy points with the Chiefs, a 172% gain. That makes him a valuable No. 1 RB for this squad.
- Philip Rivers
Going out on a Limb
There are thousands of self-declared fantasy experts nowadays, so there's no telling what led you to draft Rivers in the 8th round, about four rounds earlier than his ADP of 118. Projected to score 401 fantasy points this season with the Chargers, he will aim to perform similarly to last year when he threw for 4,308 yards and 32 TDs with 12 interceptions to post 399 fantasy points. Based on projections, Rivers will slot in as the No. 2 QB for Rodrigo's Team to begin the season.
Week 6 will present a difficult task for Rodrigo's Team, as they have five players on a bye (Derek Carr, T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis, LeSean McCoy, and Tremaine Edmunds). Your Week 6 opponent, El Perro Reventador, will have three players (Mitchell Trubisky, Antonio Brown, and Trey Burton) on the sideline.
Going off projected records, Rodrigo's Team have one of the least challenging schedules early in the season in LA REVENTADORA with a first-half strength of schedule rated as the 2nd easiest. In spite of that, for the season as a whole, Rodrigo's Team should expect a fairly balanced schedule ranked as the 7th hardest.
Rodrigo's Team seem to have prioritized experience, assembling a squad with an average of 6.8 years of NFL experience, ranking as the oldest group in the league. To that end, they didn't pick any of the six rookies drafted.
In spite of unfilled slots at QB, RB, and TE in the 5th round, Rodrigo's Team drafted WR T.Y. Hilton with the 46th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a higher leverage position.

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.
