Headlined by an Elite Backfield, Marc's Team Have a Legit Squad

Draft Summary

Marc's Team parlayed a solid draft slot (No. 3 overall) into a modest performance. The team is particularly strong at the running back position, as Alvin Kamara and James Conner are expected to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. Marc's Team are predicted to finish 9-5 (1,925 points), which would place them 4th in Yahoo Public 2423.

  • Tarik Cohen

Biggest Steal

What a tremendous late-round value for Marc's Team, who got Cohen with the 3rd pick of the 11th round, about four rounds later than his ADP of 68. Following a season in which he ran for 444 yards and 3 TDs and hauled in 71 balls for 725 yards and 5 TDs, totaling 198 fantasy points, Cohen is projected to score 203 fantasy points with the Bears. That makes him a valuable No. 4 RB for this squad.

  • Dak Prescott

Going out on a Limb

Did you lose a bet? We're not sure why else you would draft Prescott with the 8th pick of the 8th round, about four rounds earlier than his ADP of 119. To be fair, you could be onto something. Projected to score 310 fantasy points this season with the Cowboys, he looks set to surpass last year when he threw for 3,885 yards and 22 TDs with 8 interceptions and ran for 305 yards and 6 TDs to earn 294 fantasy points. But do you really need another QB? After all, you can only start one at a time. Prescott will slot in as the No. 2 QB for Marc's Team, based on projections.

Draft Notes

  • Marc's Team face a difficult challenge in Week 9 when they have five players on a bye (Alvin Kamara, Robert Woods, Calvin Ridley, Wil Lutz, and Giorgio Tavecchio). Your Week 9 opponent, HeidiR's Team, won't be quite as hamstrung with only two players (Drew Brees and Darrell Henderson) on a bye.

  • Marc's Team have one of the hardest schedules in Yahoo Public 2423 this season based on projected records with a strength of schedule rated as the 3rd-most difficult. But all is not lost. No matter how tough your opponents are, the better team will prevail. There are a number of ways to improve during the season for owners who stay active.

  • Marc's Team are leading the youth movement, putting together a lineup with an average of 3.5 years of NFL experience, ranking as the youngest group in the league. Still, they didn't select any of the four rookies drafted.

  • Even with openings at QB, WR, and TE in the 3rd round, Marc's Team drafted RB Damien Williams with the 23rd pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a position of higher importance. They were the earliest 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..."
