Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, Cheese Balls Might Make Playoffs but Probably Not

Draft Summary

Mediocrity isn't for everyone Cheese Balls, so feel proud. Ok, maybe it is. But hey, you showed up, and that's the important thing. After this average draft performance, Cheese Balls is projected to go 7-6-0 (1,471 points) and finish seventh in Fat Bastard Fantasy Football League. They won't have any issues with depth at WR, using their first three picks to load up, drafting Odell Beckham Jr., Keenan Allen, and Brandin Cooks. A lot will be expected of this group, as they are one of the best groups of WRs in the league.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Cheese Balls has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a softer-than-average slate. Along with the fifth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Cheese Balls.

Draft Notes

  • I Keep Getting Older

    And they stay the same age. Cheese Balls isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 4.3 years of NFL experience.

  • Close to the Vest

    Cheese Balls was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • Decent Idea, Mediocre Execution

    Cheese Balls will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 4, as their only TE (Zach Ertz) and only DEF (Green Bay) will both be idle that week.

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, Cheese Balls chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Cheese Balls nabbed a sleeper in DeAndre Washington with pick No. 173.

  • Not Afraid to Scramble

    With 378 projected rushing yards (ranked fifth among QBs), Marcus Mariota has multiple ways to bring in points.

Player Analysis

    • O. Beckham Jr., WR
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Does Odell Beckham Jr. Enjoy Fajitas?

    Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Beckham Jr. is projected to rank ninth in the league with 1,526 all-purpose yards.

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law

    Keenan Allen is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 99 projected catches rank fifth in the league.

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 44
    Do You Know if Andrew Luck is Religious?

    With 408 projected points, Cheese Balls is hoping Luck will be the answer to their prayers.

    • J. Stewart, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 53
    Wait For It

    Cheese Balls held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the fifth round to snag their "lead back" (Jonathan Stewart).

    • Matt Jones, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 68
    Trigger Happy

    With their sixth-round pick, Cheese Balls pulled the trigger. They drafted Matt Jones at pick number 68 despite an ADP of just 89.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Best Available

With three subpar positions on Cheese Balls, RB and TE are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.

    • Rank 158, ADP 129

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..."
