Despite an Exciting Group of WRs, Killer Miller Isn't Anything to Fear

Draft Summary

The GM of Killer Miller took the fourth overall pick in the draft and turned it into a pretty decent team. Unless of course they planned on winning, because if that was the plan, then it didn't go very well. Killer Miller will need to make some moves to improve their playoff chances, currently projected to finish seventh in Sunday Funday League with a record of 7-7-0 (1,687 points). They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Julio Jones (first round), Doug Baldwin (second round), and Allen Robinson (fifth round). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, Killer Miller will benefit. They are the best group of WRs in the league.

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.

Schedule

Killer Miller can write off Week 8 as a scheduling injustice and use that time to consider other injustices: for example, why doesn't Chewbacca get a medal during the ceremony at the end of Star Wars? Wookie bias? They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have a harder-than-average slate. Killer Miller has the opportunity to come out firing, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • WR or Bust

    WR is the only stronger-than-average position group for Killer Miller.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the Killer Miller roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 11).

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Hoping to play the favorable matchups week-to-week, Killer Miller chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • Beginning with a Bang

    Killer Miller got off to a sizzling start, amassing the most projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • Bargain Shopper

    With three steals in the first 10 rounds (Minnesota, Marcus Mariota, and Allen Robinson), Killer Miller made some shrewd moves.

  • A Stretch of the Imagination

    Grabbing Robert Turbin at pick 189 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Turbin is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Does Julio Jones Enjoy Fajitas?

    Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Jones is projected to rank ninth in the league with 1,542 all-purpose yards.

    • Doug Baldwin, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 21
    232 Excuses to Cheer for Doug Baldwin

    Baldwin ranks seventh in the Sunday Funday League among wideouts with 232 projected fantasy points.

    • C. McCaffrey, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 28
    How Rebellious of You

    Killer Miller said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Christian McCaffrey).

    • Joe Mixon, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 45
    A Choice That Wasn't Exactly Data-Driven

    Joe Mixon went with the 45th overall pick in the draft. Unfortunately for Killer Miller, he's projected to miss the top-20 in the NFL in both rushing yards (29th with 712) and TDs (29th with 5.7). Appears that Killer Miller just went with their gut on this one.

    • Allen Robinson, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 52
    Rethinking That One

    Allen Robinson went with the 52nd pick, even though he's projected to fall outside of the top-20 in the NFL in both receiving TDs (27th) and receiving yards (23rd) with 7.7 and 1,040 respectively.

Best Available

Killer Miller has five positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including TE and RB, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • O.J. Howard
    • Rank 189, ADP 125
    • David Njoku
    • Rank 194, ADP 131
    • 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..."
