Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, Dak to the Future Won't Go Down Easily

Draft Summary

Dak to the Future drafted like a bat out of hell in this one. Meat Loaf once told the NY Times that he's played in as many as 60 fantasy leagues in a year, and he would surely approve of this drafting display. Dak to the Future assembled a squad built to reach the playoffs and is projected to finish fourth in Sunday Funday League with a record of 7-7-0 (1,731 points). They waited until the eighth round to secure their top quarterback, picking up Kirk Cousins with the 94th overall selection. They've ultimately got the weakest QB combo in the league, as they have Cousins and Carson Wentz on the roster.

You're close to greatness. And if being close isn't good enough for you, you might be worthy of the Toyota Hall of Fame. Nominate yourself now.


While Week 10 has the most players on bye for Dak to the Future (five), Week 11 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have one of the most daunting slates. Corresponding with the second-most taxing overall schedule, Dak to the Future also has the second-hardest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Decent Idea, Mediocre Execution

    Dak to the Future might need to hit the waiver wire in Week 11, as their No. 1- (T.Y. Hilton), No. 2- (Jarvis Landry) and No. 5-ranked (Pierre Garcon) WRs will all be resting that week.

  • Highlight Reel

    Dak to the Future is loaded at TE, but WR isn't too shabby, either.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With 10 "low-risk" players among their 16 picks, Dak to the Future is looking for dependable help.

  • A Dominating Pair

    Dak to the Future has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Le'Veon Bell and T.Y. Hilton) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Put All Your Eggs in One Basket

    And then watch that basket. Ignoring roster depth, Dak to the Future chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • Dak to the Future Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing DeAndre Washington at pick 166 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Washington is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Le'Veon Bell, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    Turn Up The Volume

    With 327 touches, Le'Veon Bell is projected to rank second in the NFL in that category. Dak to the Future demands more!

    • T.Y. Hilton, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 22
    Thank You, T.Y.!

    Hilton notched career-highs in targets, receptions, and receiving yards last year. Only three wide receivers (Evans, Nelson, Brown) appeared more often on fantasy rosters that had earned a spot in their league's playoffs.

    • Greg Olsen, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 51
    Panther Performance

    Olsen saw an increase in targets for the sixth consecutive year in 2016. It was his third straight 1,000-yard campaign and ninth year in a row suiting up for all 16 games.

    • Kareem Hunt, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 70
    That Just Happened

    Why can't I find Kareem Hunt on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late-round value."

    • Willie Snead, WR
    • Round 7, Pick 75
    Was the 75th Pick the Right Time for Willie Snead?

    Dak to the Future apparently believes it is. The Saints' wide receiver is projected to put up 180 points this year, after getting 156 last year.

Best Available

Dak to the Future has four positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including QB and RB, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Sam Bradford
    • Rank 164, ADP 124
    • Joe Williams

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..."
