Despite a Few Value Picks, Black's Breathtaking Team Need Help

Draft Summary

Blessed with a solid draft position (No. 4 overall), expectations were high for Black's Breathtaking Team. However, those expectations vanished instantly after they drafted, as this team is on track for a lackluster 5th-place finish in Beginners Luck. Black's Breathtaking Team are predicted to post a record of 6-9 (2,225 points).

  • Travis Kelce

Best Pick

What an outstanding early-round value for Black's Breathtaking Team, who got Kelce at No. 20, about 8 spots later than his ADP of 12. After a season in which he snagged 105 passes for 1,416 yards and 11 TDs, totaling 260 fantasy points, Kelce is projected to score 314 fantasy points with the Chiefs. That makes him a valuable No. 1 TE for this squad.

  • Damien Harris

Stretch Pick

Are you willing to share your secrets? We'd love to hear what prompted the selection of Harris at No. 61, about two rounds earlier than his ADP of 82. Granted, you may be onto something? Projected to score 164 fantasy points this season with the Patriots, he looks poised to top last year when he ran 137 times for 691 yards and 2 TDs over 10 games, earning 89 fantasy points. Harris will slot in as the No. 7 RB for Black's Breathtaking Team, based on projected points.

Draft Notes

  • Black's Breathtaking Team went particularly light at wide receiver, selecting the fewest of any team in the league with only one, trailing the league average of 5.

  • If you're not first, you're last. You got out ahead of your opponents at tight end, drafting Travis Kelce (No. 20 overall) as the first TE off the board. You were more patient at wide receiver, becoming the last manager in the league to draft a WR with the selection of Courtland Sutton (No. 116 overall).

  • With a strength of schedule that rates as the 4th hardest according to projected records, Black's Breathtaking Team have a fairly balanced schedule in Beginners Luck this season.

  • Even with unfilled slots at QB and WR in the 4th round, Black's Breathtaking Team drafted RB Darrell Henderson Jr. with the 29th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a higher leverage position. 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..."
