Behind an Impressive Backfield, Michael's Team are the Favorite to Win it All

Draft Summary

Blessed with a juicy draft position (No. 2 overall), Michael's Team had an exceptional performance. The team is particularly talented at the running back position, as Saquon Barkley and Dalvin Cook are slated to combine for the highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. Michael's Team are predicted to finish 1st in Yahoo Public 2423 with a record of 12-2 (2,020 points).

  • Chris Carson

Best Pick

What a great late-round value for Michael's Team, who picked up Carson with the 9th pick in the 10th round, about three rounds later than his ADP of 66. After a season in which he rushed for 1,151 yards and 9 TDs and had 20 catches for 163 yards in 14 games, totaling 191 fantasy points, Carson is projected to score 129 fantasy points with the Seahawks. That makes him the No. 5 RB for this squad.

  • Houston

Going out on a Limb

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 owner in the league to draft a WR with the selection of Brandin Cooks (No. 42 overall).

  • Michael's Team face a tough task in Week 10 when they have five players on a bye (Derrius Guice, Stephen Gostkowski, Jake Elliott, Will Fuller V, and Houston). Perhaps leveling the playing field, your Week 10 opponent -- Charles's Crazy Team -- will also be tackling their worst bye week with five players getting the week off.

  • With a strength of schedule that ranks as the easiest according to projected records, Michael's Team have an easy road in Yahoo Public 2423 this season. But that doesn't mean you should rest on your laurels. Light schedules can become problematic overnight for owners who aren't diligent.

  • Even with openings on offense at QB and WR in the 4th round, Michael's Team drafted RB Aaron Jones with the 39th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a higher leverage 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..."
