Led by an Impressive Backfield, Blue Dragons Won't Go Down Without a Fight

Draft Summary

Blue Dragons turned the first pick into a decent performance. With Todd Gurley II and Royce Freeman slated to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league, Blue Dragons are predicted to finish 7-6 (1,546 points), which would place them 6th in CZNFL C League 18.

  • Kenny Golladay

Best Pick

What a tremendous late-round value for Blue Dragons, who picked up Golladay in the 13th round, about two rounds later than his ADP of 131. Coming off a rookie season in which he had 28 catches for 477 yards and 3 TDs in 11 games, totaling 81 fantasy points, Golladay is projected to score 114 fantasy points with the Lions. That makes him a valuable No. 4 WR for this squad.

  • Chris Hogan

Reach Pick

Either you know something everybody else doesn't or you got a little carried away with your choice of Hogan in the 5th round, about 23 picks earlier than his ADP of 73. You may be onto something, though. Projected to score 128 fantasy points this season with the Patriots, he appears poised to outperform last year when he had 34 catches for 439 yards and 5 TDs over 9 games, earning 76 fantasy points. Based on projected points, Hogan will slot in as the No. 3 WR for Blue Dragons to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • Blue Dragons seem particularly light at wide receiver and running back, taking fewer than any team in the league with only four WRs and three RBs.

  • Week 11 could be a rude awakening for Blue Dragons, as they have four players on a bye (Stephen Gostkowski, Jarvis Landry, Isaiah Crowell, and Chris Hogan). Your Week 11 opponent, HoP Patriots, won't be quite as limited with only two players (Kelvin Benjamin and James White) getting the week off.

  • With a strength of schedule rated as the most difficult according to projections, Blue Dragons won't have an easy path in CZNFL C League 18 this season. That doesn't mean you're destined to lose, though. It doesn't matter how tough your opponents are if you field the better team. If you remain active in trade talks and on the wire, you'll be fine.

  • Blue Dragons compiled a powerful group of players across the board. The top players from each position, combined, are projected to tally the most points in CZNFL C League 18. Not only that, the rest of the roster is expected to compile a point total ranking 3rd.

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..."
