With a Couple Gambles, The Underdogs Have Nowhere to go But Up

Draft Summary

The Underdogs received a solid draft position, and they fumbled it away. Even though they had the No. 3 overall pick, they're projected to finish 9th in LA REVENTADORA. The Underdogs are looking at a final record of 3-10 (3,213 points).

  • Zach Ertz

Biggest Steal

What a great early bargain for The Underdogs, who selected Ertz with the 3rd pick in the 5th round, about two rounds later than his ADP of 29. Coming off a season in which he had 116 catches for 1,163 yards and 8 TDs, totaling 239 fantasy points, Ertz is projected to score 231 fantasy points with the Eagles. That makes him a valuable No. 1 TE for this squad.

  • Dak Prescott

Stretch Pick

You must have gotten distracted, right? It was an autopick. That's the only explanation for the choice of Prescott at No. 78, about four rounds earlier than his ADP of 116. Projected to score 383 fantasy points this season with the Cowboys, he'll be looking to perform similarly to last year when he threw for 3,885 yards and 22 TDs with 8 INTs and rushed for 305 yards and 6 TDs to post 365 fantasy points. Based on projections, Prescott will slot in as the No. 2 QB for The Underdogs to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • Better late than never. You became the last owner in the league to draft a quarterback with your selection of Dak Prescott (No. 78 overall).

  • Week 10 will present a difficult task for The Underdogs, as they have six players on a bye, led by Zach Ertz, Duke Johnson Jr., and Philadelphia. Your Week 10 opponent, Dr. House Region 4, will have four players on the sideline.

  • Going off projections, The Underdogs have one of the most challenging schedules in LA REVENTADORA this season with a strength of schedule that ranks as the 3rd-most difficult. That doesn't mean you're destined to lose, though. Strength of schedule is just a number. Fantasy football rewards those owners who put in the work, so be sure to follow the newest free agents each week.

  • Despite an unfilled slot at QB in the 6th round, The Underdogs chose RB Duke Johnson Jr. with the 58th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position rather than a more important 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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
