After a Couple Reaches, Warriors Aren't Exactly a Team That Can Win

Draft Summary

If Warriors deals with adversity during the season the way they did in this draft, it's going to be a long year. Picking No. 13 overall, they were clearly overmatched. Warriors are predicted to finish 13th in OklahomIraqis League PFC with a record of 2-11 (2,236 points).

  • Mark Ingram II

Best Pick

What a nice late-round value for Warriors, who selected Ingram II in the 13th round, about four rounds later than his ADP of 128. After a season in which he rushed for 554 yards and 2 TDs and recorded 27 receptions for 162 yards in 14 games, totaling 109 fantasy points, Ingram II is projected to score 147 fantasy points with the Saints. That makes him a valuable No. 3 RB for this squad.

  • Zach Ertz

Going out on a Limb

You might have gotten a bit ahead of yourself when making the decision to choose Ertz in the 3rd round, about four rounds earlier than his ADP of 94. You may be onto something, though. Projected to score 193 fantasy points this season with the Cardinals, he appears set to take a step forward from last year when he grabbed 74 passes for 763 yards and 5 TDs, posting 181 fantasy points. Based on projections, Ertz will slot in as the No. 1 TE for Warriors to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • With only three tight ends off the board, Warriors predicted a run looming and jumped in early, taking Zach Ertz at No. 41 overall. Three more tight ends went in the round that followed.

  • The early bird gets the worm. You beat your opponents to the punch at quarterback, drafting Josh Allen (No. 16 overall) as the first QB off the board. You demonstrated more patience at running back, becoming the last manager in the league to draft a RB with the selection of Breece Hall (No. 44 overall).

  • Warriors face a tough task in Week 9 when they have four players on a bye (Amari Cooper, Kareem Hunt, Jalen Tolbert, and David Bell). The Xtreme, your Week 9 opponent, won't be nearly as limited with only two players (Eli Mitchell and Chase Claypool) getting the week off.

  • Based on projections, Warriors have one of the hardest schedules in OklahomIraqis League PFC this season with a strength of schedule rated as the 2nd-most difficult. All is not lost, though. You can't control strength of schedule, but you can control how involved you are. There are countless methods to improve throughout the season for managers who stay active.

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..."
