Despite a Formidable Set of Receivers, Ashim's Expert Team Have a Great Team if the Goal is to Finish Dead Last

Draft Summary

It's going to be a challenging year if Ashim's Expert Team handles adversity during the season the way they did in this draft. Picking No. 10 overall, they were clearly ill-equipped. For some good news, the team is notably strong at the receiver position, as Julio Jones and Mike Evans are expected to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting WR groups in the league. Ashim's Expert Team are predicted to finish 8th in Yahoo Public 2423 with a record of 4-10 (1,861 points).

  • David Montgomery

Best Pick

What a late-round bargain for Ashim's Expert Team, who selected Montgomery in the 10th round, about three rounds later than his ADP of 65. Montgomery is projected to score 8 fantasy points with the Bears, making him a valuable No. 4 RB for this squad.

  • Cooper Kupp

Going out on a Limb

Are you friends with Denzel Washington? Because you must have had an "Inside Man" telling you to draft Kupp with the 10th pick of the 5th round, about 13 picks earlier than his ADP of 63. Granted, you might be onto something? Projected to score 178 fantasy points this season with the Rams, he appears poised to outperform last year when he racked up 40 catches for 566 yards and 6 TDs in 8 games to post 115 fantasy points. Kupp will slot in as the No. 3 WR for Ashim's Expert Team, based on projected points.

Draft Notes

  • With only one defense off the board, Ashim's Expert Team predicted a run on the horizon and got in early, taking Los Angeles in the 8th round. In the subsequent round, five more defensive units came off the board.

  • Fashionably late? With the selection of TE David Njoku (No. 70 overall), you became the last owner in the league to draft a tight end.

  • For the last three weeks of the season, Ashim's Expert Team have one of the lightest schedules in Yahoo Public 2423 according to projections with a late-season strength of schedule that ranks as the 2nd easiest. Despite that, for the season as a whole, Ashim's Expert Team should expect a fairly balanced schedule that ranks as the 4th hardest.

  • In spite of openings at QB and TE in the 5th round, Ashim's Expert Team selected WR Cooper Kupp at No. 50, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a more important position. They were the third-to-last squad to make their first flex pick.

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..."
