In Spite of a Set of Monster RBs, Space Monkey Mafia Have Nowhere to go But Up

Draft Summary

Drafting in the bottom half of the first round (No. 8 overall), Space Monkey Mafia can blame this mediocre performance on their subpar draft position. With a projected record of 5-9 (2,279 points), this team strikes fear in the heart of no one. On a positive note, the team is particularly tough at running back, as Aaron Jones and Joe Mixon are expected to combine for the 3rd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. Space Monkey Mafia are predicted to finish 9th in FFL PPR 2021.

  • Henry Ruggs III

Best Pick

Space Monkey Mafia scored a late-round bargain in picking Ruggs III at No. 161, about four rounds later than his ADP of 126. Coming off a rookie season in which he snagged 26 balls for 452 yards and 2 TDs in 13 games, totaling 86 fantasy points, Ruggs III is projected to score 187 fantasy points with the Raiders. That makes him the No. 7 WR for this squad.

  • AJ Dillon

Going out on a Limb

You may have gotten a bit too excited when making the decision to select Dillon at No. 80, about 27 slots earlier than his ADP of 107. Then again, maybe you're onto something. Projected to score 130 fantasy points this season with the Packers, he looks set to top his rookie year when he ran for 242 yards and 2 TDs on 46 carries in 9 games to post 40 fantasy points. Dillon will slot in as the No. 4 RB for Space Monkey Mafia, according to projections.

Draft Notes

  • With only three quarterbacks off the board, Space Monkey Mafia predicted a run coming and jumped in early, taking Kyler Murray with the 56th overall pick. In the round that followed, three more quarterbacks went off the board.

  • Week 10 will be a rude awakening for Space Monkey Mafia, as they have four players on a bye (Joe Mixon, David Montgomery, Brandin Cooks, and Darnell Mooney). Inallthetime, your Week 10 opponent, won't be quite as short-handed with only one player (Justin Fields) on a bye.

  • With a first-half strength of schedule that ranks as the 2nd-most difficult based on projections, Space Monkey Mafia have one of the most daunting schedules early in the season in FFL PPR 2021. In spite of that, for the full season, Space Monkey Mafia have drawn a fairly balanced path ranked as the 8th toughest.

  • Even with remaining openings at QB, WR, and TE in the 3rd round, Space Monkey Mafia selected RB David Montgomery at No. 32, filling the WR/RB flex position rather than a more important position. They were the earliest 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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
