Behind a Quality Group of RBs, Regulators are Loaded with Talent

Draft Summary

After drawing a juicy draft position (No. 2 overall), Regulators had an excellent performance. With Saquon Barkley and James Conner expected to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league, Regulators are predicted to finish 2nd in Bryan Mueller Memorial League with a record of 11-3 (2,139 points).

  • Dak Prescott

Biggest Steal

What a great mid-round value for Regulators, who got Prescott with the 2nd pick of the 9th round, about four rounds later than his ADP of 46. Following a season in which he threw for 4,902 yards and 30 TDs with 11 interceptions, totaling 399 fantasy points, Prescott is projected to score 400 fantasy points with the Cowboys. That makes him a valuable No. 1 QB for this squad.

  • Adrian Peterson

Reach Pick

There are thousands of self-declared fantasy experts these days, so there's no telling where you got the idea to draft Peterson with the 9th pick of the 10th round, about two rounds earlier than his ADP of 125. Projected to score 87 fantasy points this season with the Redskins, he will need to outperform expectations to improve on last year when he rushed for 898 yards and 5 TDs and recorded 17 catches for 142 yards to post 148 fantasy points. Based on projections, Peterson will slot in as the No. 5 RB for Regulators to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • The early bird gets the worm. You beat your opponents to the punch at tight end, drafting Travis Kelce (No. 19 overall) as the first TE off the board. You showed more patience at wide receiver, becoming the last manager in the league to draft a WR with the selection of Tyler Lockett (No. 39 overall).

  • Week 8 could bring on a case of the Bye Week Blues for Regulators, as they have five players on a bye (James Conner, Courtland Sutton, Zane Gonzalez, Adrian Peterson, and Chase Edmonds). Hock N John, your Week 8 opponent, won't be nearly as hamstrung with only two players (Mark Andrews and Brandin Cooks) getting the week off.

  • Regulators won't encounter too many obstacles in Bryan Mueller Memorial League this season according to projections with a strength of schedule rated as the easiest. But don't be fooled, your work is only just beginning. Even the lightest schedules can present issues for managers who aren't involved.

  • Despite an unfilled slot at QB in the 6th round, Regulators selected RB D'Andre Swift at No. 59, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a more important position. They were the third-to-last squad to fill a flex position.

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..."
