Predicted to Finish Third, Hernandez Suspension Can Only Improve From Here

Draft Summary

Hernandez Suspension should consider renaming the team "Learning Experience," because that's what this draft was. Picking third, Hernandez Suspension bumbled their way through their picks, leading to a projected finish of third in See you in hell Lennay Kekua League with a record of 4-10-0 (2,404 points). They loaded up on ball carriers early, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs LeSean McCoy (third round), Devonta Freeman (fourth round), and Jay Ajayi (fifth round). Even so, they ended up with one of the worst sets of RBs in the league.

  • Risk Averse

    Hernandez Suspension minimized risk by choosing six consistent players among their 13 picks.

  • Team of Champions

  • Single Serving

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.
