Entering the draft with the third overall pick, the expectations were high for Its(VON)MillerTime. Then they drafted. Those expectations quickly vanished with a projected sixth-place finish in Late Night Fantasies No Romos League at 4-10-0 (2,047 points). They jumped on ball carriers early and often, using their first three selections to grab RBs Jay Ajayi (3rd overall), DeMarco Murray (14th), and Ezekiel Elliott (19th). They wound up with the best QB combo in the league, as they added Tom Brady and Dak Prescott to their squad.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Its(VON)MillerTime has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Its(VON)MillerTime has the opportunity to close with a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Carrying the Load
Its(VON)MillerTime has a trio of above-average positions leading the way (QB, TE, and DEF).
Team of Champions
Its(VON)MillerTime assembled a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including Jay Ajayi, DeMarco Murray, and Ezekiel Elliott.
Put All Your Eggs in One Basket
And then watch that basket. Ignoring roster depth, Its(VON)MillerTime chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
Currently in eighth place all-time with 13,065 career rushing yards, Gore is only 620 yards away from leapfrogging Dickerson, Bettis, and Tomlinson into fifth place. With 1,037 yards, he'll lay claim to fourth-place (passing Curtis Martin).
Jay Ajayi Doesn't Read the Playbook
- Jay Ajayi, RB
- Round 1, Pick 3
The playbook reads him. Its(VON)MillerTime should be in decent shape if Ajayi gets his 309 projected touches this year.
Better Lucky Than Good
- DeMarco Murray, RB
- Round 2, Pick 14
The rest of Late Night Fantasies No Romos League overlooked a gem, and Its(VON)MillerTime made the smartest value pick of the round by taking DeMarco Murray.
- E. Elliott, RB
- Round 3, Pick 19
With 9.2 rushing TDs, Ezekiel Elliott is projected to finish third in the NFL in that category.
The Heist Is On
- Tom Brady, QB
- Round 5, Pick 35
The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Its(VON)MillerTime got a steal in snatching Tom Brady in the fifth round (35th overall pick vs. ADP of 24.9).
Its(VON)MillerTime Upgrades WR Corps with Crabtree at Pick No. 46
- M. Crabtree, WR
- Round 6, Pick 46
The Raiders' wide receiver is projected to have 234 points this year, just a bit lower than his total from last season.
With three below-average positions on Its(VON)MillerTime, K and RB are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Stephen Hauschka
- Rank 195, ADP 110
- Cairo Santos
- Rank 205, ADP 126
- Terrance West
- Rank 83, ADP 119
- Paul Perkins
- Rank 91, ADP 96

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.
