Led by a Pair of Bengals, Nightmares Win at Fantasy Football and Life

Draft Summary

After receiving a favorable draft slot (No. 7 overall), Nightmares had a wonderful showing. After picking up multiple Bengals in the early rounds (Joe Mixon and Tee Higgins), Nightmares are projected to finish 2nd in OklahomIraqis League PFC with a mark of 10-3 (2,377 points).

  • Ronald Jones II

Best Pick

What a late-round bargain for Nightmares, who picked up Jones II with the 7th pick in the 15th round, about six rounds later than his ADP of 120. Coming off a season in which he rushed for 428 yards and 4 TDs and had 10 receptions for 64 yards, totaling 79 fantasy points, Jones II is projected to score 39 fantasy points with the Chiefs. That makes him the No. 5 RB for this squad.

  • Chase Edmonds

Most Likely to Improve

Usually, this is where we would tell you how you got out of line in the draft. But it's clear that you're not a typical fantasy owner, as you didn't make any flubs. So let's focus on more good news. Of all the offensive players selected by Nightmares, Edmonds is expected to take the biggest jump from last year. After a season in which he ran for 592 yards and 2 TDs and recorded 43 receptions for 311 yards in 12 games, totaling 143 fantasy points, Edmonds is projected to score 237 fantasy points with the Dolphins, a 65% jump, making him the No. 2 RB for this squad.

Draft Notes

  • Week 9 will be a tough challenge for Nightmares, as they have six players on a bye, led by Dak Prescott, Deebo Samuel, and Pat Freiermuth. GreatPlainsDrifters, your Week 9 opponent, will have three players (Russell Wilson, David Njoku, and Tyrion Davis-Price) on the sideline.

  • With a strength of schedule rated as the 3rd-easiest according to projections, Nightmares have one of the most coveted schedules in OklahomIraqis League PFC this season.

  • Whatever the plan heading into the draft, it surely didn't involve collecting such a limited group of stars, as Nightmares compiled a back-loaded collection of players. The top players from each position, combined, are projected to tally the 4th-fewest points in the league. The rest of the roster, fortunately, is predicted to pick up the slack and combine for a point total ranking 1st.

  • In spite of openings at QB and TE in the 6th round, Nightmares chose WR Michael Thomas at No. 78, utilizing 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..."
