Led by a Pair of Vikings, Travis Aren't Exactly a Team That Can Win

Draft Summary

Travis received a solid draft position, and they dropped the ball. Even though they had the No. 2 overall pick, they're projected to finish 7th in Beginners Luck. Behind multiple Vikings in the early rounds (Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson), Travis are looking at a final record of 2-13 (2,026 points).

  • AJ Dillon

Biggest Mover

The RB is prepared to take the biggest jump from last year of all the offensive players selected by Travis. Following a rookie season in which he ran for 242 yards and 2 TDs on 46 carries in 9 games, totaling 39 fantasy points, Dillon is projected to score 119 fantasy points with the Packers, a 203% jump. That makes him a valuable No. 2 RB for this squad.

  • Darnell Mooney

Reach Pick

Did you lose a bet? We're wondering why else you would choose Mooney with the 7th pick of the 4th round, about 12 rounds earlier than his ADP of 127. Granted, perhaps you're onto something? Projected to score 164 fantasy points this season with the Bears, he appears set to beat his rookie year when he recorded 61 catches for 631 yards and 4 TDs, totaling 122 fantasy points. According to projections, Mooney will slot in as the No. 5 WR for Travis to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • Travis seem especially light at running back, taking the fewest of any team in the league with just two, lagging the league average of 5.4.

  • If you're not first, you're last. You beat your opponents to the punch at quarterback, drafting Kyler Murray (No. 18 overall) as the first QB off the board. You were more patient at tight end, becoming the last manager in the league to draft a TE with the selection of Evan Engram (No. 66 overall).

  • Week 7 could be a rude awakening for Travis, as they have three players on a bye (Dalvin Cook, Justin Jefferson, and Pittsburgh). On the bright side, your Week 7 opponent -- Player 1... Fight!! -- will also be facing their worst bye week with four players on the sideline.

  • Travis have one of the most daunting schedules in Beginners Luck this season based on projections with a strength of schedule that rates as the 2nd-most difficult. All is not lost, though. Strength of schedule doesn't incorporate how involved you are. There are a number of means to improve your team over the course of the season for those 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..."
