Behind an Impressive Backfield, Cockwhalloper Will Be a Force to be Reckoned With

Draft Summary

Although they were stuck with the No. 10 overall selection, Cockwhalloper remained unfazed, building a roster capable of topping any team in Superior Flexing League. The team is especially tough at the running back position, as Jonathan Taylor and D'Andre Swift are expected to combine for the highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. Cockwhalloper are projected to finish with a flawless record of 14-0 (2,594 points), placing them 1st.

  • Courtland Sutton

Best Keeper

Cockwhalloper clearly have a feel for keepers, and Sutton rates as the most likely among the keepers to elevate his game. After a season in which he had 58 catches for 776 yards and 2 TDs, totaling 150 fantasy points, Sutton is projected to score 254 fantasy points with the Broncos. That makes him a valuable No. 2 WR for this squad.

  • Antonio Gibson

Regression Candidate

Selecting 14 keepers is no easy task, but deciding to bring Gibson back may end up being a mistake Cockwhalloper. Coming off a season in which he rushed for 1,037 yards and 7 TDs and recorded 42 catches for 294 yards and 3 TDs, totaling 229 fantasy points, Gibson is projected to score 153 fantasy points with the Commanders, which makes him the No. 5 RB for this squad.

Draft Notes

  • With only one tight end off the board, Cockwhalloper foresaw a run coming and jumped in early, taking Irv Smith Jr. in the 17th round. Three more tight ends went in the subsequent 12 non-keeper picks.

  • Cockwhalloper face a tough challenge in Week 9 when they have six players on a bye, led by Najee Harris, CeeDee Lamb, and Courtland Sutton. New World order, your Week 9 opponent, will have three players (Tim Patrick, Jimmy Garoppolo, and Jaylen Warren) on a bye week.

  • With a strength of schedule rated as the 2nd-easiest based on projected records, Cockwhalloper have one of the best schedules in Superior Flexing League this season.

  • Cockwhalloper seem to be balancing both youth and experience, putting together a lineup with an average of 4 years of NFL experience, ranking in the middle of the pack for the league. They selected one rookie (Dameon Pierce). In total, there were 29 rookies selected over the course of the Superior Flexing League draft.

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..."
