Led by a Pair of Chargers, Vandals Should Factor Heavily Into Playoff Picture

Draft Summary

Vandals parlayed a solid draft slot (No. 2 overall) into a respectable performance. After picking up multiple Chargers in the early rounds (Austin Ekeler and Keenan Allen), Vandals are predicted to finish 9-4 (2,306 points), which would place them 5th in OklahomIraqis League PFC.

  • Isaiah Spiller

Biggest Steal

What an outstanding late-round bargain for Vandals, who picked up Spiller at No. 167, about three rounds later than his ADP of 130. Spiller is projected to score 54 fantasy points with the Chargers, making him the No. 5 RB for this squad.

  • DeVonta Smith

Stretch Pick

We're going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you got distracted right before the selection of Smith with the 13th pick in the 6th round, about 25 picks earlier than his ADP of 108. Then again, maybe you're onto something. Projected to score 202 fantasy points this season with the Eagles, he looks set to surpass his rookie year when he racked up 64 catches for 916 yards and 5 TDs, posting 186 fantasy points. Smith will slot in as the No. 4 WR for Vandals, based on projections.

Draft Notes

  • Week 9 will present a tough task for Vandals, as they have four players on a bye (Jerry Jeudy, Wan'Dale Robinson, Brandon McManus, and Michael Gallup). On the bright side, Enforcers, your Week 9 opponent, will be facing a similar struggle with five players on a bye.

  • For the second half of the season, Vandals won't have an easy road in OklahomIraqis League PFC according to projections with a late-season strength of schedule rated as the most difficult. Despite that, for the season as a whole, Vandals have drawn a pretty fair path ranked as the 10th toughest.

  • Vandals are balancing both youth and experience, assembling a roster with an average of 4.9 years of NFL experience, ranking in the middle of the pack for the league. They selected four rookies (Dameon Pierce, Rachaad White, Isaiah Spiller, and Wan'Dale Robinson), 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.

  • In spite of unfilled positions at QB and TE in the 6th round, Vandals took WR DeVonta Smith with the 83rd pick, taking advantage of the multiple flex positions.

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..."
