Headlined by an Elite Backfield, Killdozer Will be a Tough Team

Draft Summary

Killdozer turned the No. 8 overall pick into a projected 4th-place finish in Beginners Luck. The team is particularly talented at running back, as Jonathan Taylor and J.K. Dobbins are expected to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. Killdozer are predicted to put up a total of 2,214 points based on the current roster, which would result in an 8-7 record.

  • Justin Herbert

Best Pick

What a nice late-round value for Killdozer, who selected Herbert in the 10th round, about two rounds later than his ADP of 60. After a rookie season in which he threw for 4,336 yards and 31 TDs with 10 INTs, totaling 343 fantasy points, Herbert is projected to score 383 fantasy points with the Chargers. That makes him a valuable No. 1 QB for this squad.

  • Zack Moss

Stretch Pick

You might have gotten a bit ahead of yourself when making the decision to select Moss with the 1st pick in the 12th round, about 17 spots earlier than his ADP of 106. Granted, you could be onto something? Projected to score 186 fantasy points this season with the Bills, he seems poised to outperform his rookie year when he ran for 481 yards and 4 TDs and hauled in 14 balls for 95 yards and 1 TD over 13 games to post 95 fantasy points. According to projected points, Moss will slot in as the No. 5 RB for Killdozer to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • Fashionably late? With the selection of RB Nick Chubb (No. 8 overall), you became the last manager in the league to draft a running back.

  • For the first half of the season, Killdozer have a tough road in Beginners Luck according to projected records with an early-season strength of schedule that rates as the most difficult. Even so, for the season as a whole, Killdozer face a pretty fair schedule rated as the 5th hardest.

  • Killdozer have compiled a fairly young lineup with an average of 3.1 years of NFL experience, ranking as the youngest group in the league. Driving home that point, they selected three rookies (Kyle Pitts, Ja'Marr Chase, and DeVonta Smith), the highest total in the league. In total, there were nine rookies selected over the course of the Beginners Luck draft.

  • Despite unfilled slots at QB, WR, and TE in the 4th round, Killdozer selected RB J.K. Dobbins with the 25th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a more important position. They were the earliest squad to fill a flex position.

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..."
