Led by a Pair of Cowboys, Orange bloods Won't be Writing to Mom About This Draft

Draft Summary

Despite selecting with the No. 5 overall pick, Orange bloods drafted a roster that will struggle to rack up wins. Opponents may enjoy beating them frequently, as this team is projected to finish 14th in OklahomIraqis League PFC. Behind multiple Cowboys in the early rounds (Ezekiel Elliott and Dalton Schultz), Orange bloods are predicted to have a record of 1-12 (2,156 points).

  • San Francisco

You Lead, They Follow

With only one defense off the board, Orange bloods saw a run coming and got in early, taking the 49ers with the 5th pick in the 11th round. Three more defensive units went in the ensuing round. Following a season in which the unit earned 118 fantasy points, San Francisco is projected to score 118 fantasy points this season.

  • Allen Lazard

Going out on a Limb

Either you know something nobody else does or you got ahead of yourself with the choice of Lazard with the 10th pick of the 6th round, about 25 slots earlier than his ADP of 105. You may be onto something, though. Projected to score 184 fantasy points this season with the Packers, he looks set to improve on last year when he racked up 40 receptions for 513 yards and 8 TDs in 14 games to post 143 fantasy points. Lazard will slot in as the No. 1 WR for Orange bloods, based on projected points.

Draft Notes

  • Patience is a virtue. With the selection of WR Allen Lazard (No. 80 overall), you became the last manager in the league to draft a wide receiver.

  • Orange bloods won't have an easy road in OklahomIraqis League PFC this season according to projections with a strength of schedule that ranks as the most difficult. Don't lose hope, though. You can't control strength of schedule, but you can control your team. There are countless methods to improve your team during the season for managers who stay involved.

  • Orange bloods have assembled a fairly young lineup with an average of 3.8 years of NFL experience, ranking as the 2nd-youngest group in the league. Case in point: they selected four rookies (Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson, Jahan Dotson, and Kyle Philips), the 2nd-highest total of first-year players in the league. In total, there were 27 rookies selected over the course of the OklahomIraqis League PFC draft.

  • Despite an unfilled position at WR in the 5th round, Orange bloods selected RB J.K. Dobbins at No. 61, filling the WR/RB flex position instead of a position of higher need. They were the second 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..."
