With a Projected Finish of Fourth, MontREAL Has the Studs to Reach Playoffs

Draft Summary

MontREAL figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the second overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 10-4-0 (1,598 points). With that record, they will likely finish fourth in Yahoo Public 309103 League. With five WRs on the roster, MontREAL guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 145, their WRs projected average of 154 points won't be much different than the rest of the wideouts around the league. They also landed a good group of WRs, as they have Odell Beckham Jr., Allen Robinson, Doug Baldwin, and Michael Crabtree for their rotation.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Week 5 would be a good opportunity for MontREAL to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the โ€œstretchโ€ run. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the easiest slate. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, MontREAL also has the league's easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Good Luck With That One!

    MontREAL will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Doug Baldwin), fourth- (Michael Crabtree), and fifth-ranked (DeVante Parker) wideouts.

  • Sky's the Limit

    With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, MontREAL hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

    MontREAL might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Blake Bortles) and second-drafted QB (Kirk Cousins) have similar seasonal point projections.

  • Close to the Vest

    MontREAL was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • Big D

    MontREAL elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • A Dominating Pair

    MontREAL has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Odell Beckham Jr. and Allen Robinson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

Player Analysis

    • O. Beckham Jr., WR
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    Does Odell Beckham Jr. Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

    Because his all-purpose yardage projections are tasty. Beckham Jr. is ranked fifth in the league with 1,582 all-purpose yards.

    • Jamaal Charles, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 22
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, MontREAL didn't grab their first RB (Jamaal Charles) until the third round.

    • Eddie Lacy, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 39
    Finding Paydirt

    With 7.4 rushing TDs, Eddie Lacy is projected to finish ninth in the NFL in that category.

    • Jordan Reed, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 42
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    Jordan Reed was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

    • Doug Baldwin, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 59
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, MontREAL got a steal in snatching Doug Baldwin in the sixth round (59th overall pick vs. ADP of 44.6).

Best Available

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..."
