Led by an Elite Group of RBs, pepe manriel Is Loaded with Talent

Draft Summary

Putting together a decent team, pepe manriel didn't want to show up the Los Gordos League and build some unbeatable juggernaut. They instead focused on building a team with a good chance to make the playoffs. Humbly, they are expected to finish in sixth-place in Los Gordos League at 7-6-0 (1,650 points). They went with the SMU "Pony Express" draft strategy, loading up on three tailbacks in the first five rounds, selecting Devonta Freeman (first round), LeSean McCoy (second round), and Frank Gore (fifth round). This group will have to produce in order for pepe manriel to have a good season, as they are the highest-scoring group of RBs in the league.

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

Keeper Summary

pepe manriel decided to disregard their only keeper spot, instead leaving their fantasy fate solely in the hands of the draft.

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, pepe manriel has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the least difficult slates. In addition to having the third-easiest overall schedule, pepe manriel also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    pepe manriel is loaded at RB, but WR isn't too shabby, either.

  • QB Controversy?

    The coach of pepe manriel might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted QB (Blake Bortles) and second-drafted QB (Andy Dalton) have very similar seasonal point projections.

  • On the Rise

    pepe manriel hopes to break through this season, led by three players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.

  • It's How You Finish

    pepe manriel made every other squad look silly after some amazing halftime adjustments, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Tony Romo, pepe manriel pounced on him at pick No. 136.

  • No Double-Dipping Allowed

    By grabbing Dwayne Allen as their lone tight end, pepe manriel preferred to stack the roster at other positions.

Player Analysis

    • D. Freeman, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 9
    Feed Thy Beast

    Devonta Freeman will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish eighth in the league with 295 touches.

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 16
    Traditionalist

    pepe manriel stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, nabbing Devonta Freeman and LeSean McCoy right off the bat.

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 33
    Jumping on Jarvis:

    pepe manriel may see some WR1 potential in Landry, who was one of three players (along with Julio Jones and Antonio Brown) to see double-digit targets in each of the final four weeks of 2015.

    • M. Crabtree, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 64
    Was the 64th Pick the Right Time for Michael Crabtree?

    pepe manriel apparently believes it is. The Raiders' wide receiver is projected to notch 169 points this year, after producing 189 last year.

    • Danny Woodhead, RB
    • Round 7, Pick 81
    Taking a Chance

    With their seventh-round pick, pepe manriel threw caution to the wind. They took Danny Woodhead at pick number 81 despite an ADP of 118.3 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Best Available

pepe manriel is projected to have a pair of subpar positions (TE and QB), but TE is clearly their worst unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.

    • Jason Witten
    • Rank 131, ADP 122
    • Ladarius Green
    • Rank 134, ADP 111
    • Eric Ebron
    • Rank 136, ADP 136
    • Zach Miller
    • Rank 137, ADP 136

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..."
