Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, Jacksonville Jagoffs Has Great Shot at Playoffs

Draft Summary

Putting together a playoff-caliber roster, Jacksonville Jagoffs didn't break any records with this draft, but they put together a quality team that will be tough to match up against. Looking at their schedule, they figure to reach the playoffs with an 8-6-0 (1,713) record and fifth-place finish in The League. They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Brandon Marshall (second round), T.Y. Hilton (third round), and Jeremy Maclin (fifth round). They ended up with one of the highest-scoring groups of RBs in the league, as they added David Johnson, Thomas Rawls, Matt Jones, and Duke Johnson Jr.

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

Schedule

While Week 5 has the most players on bye for Jacksonville Jagoffs (five), Week 9 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a less-challenging-than-average slate. Along with the fifth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Jacksonville Jagoffs.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    Jacksonville Jagoffs is loaded at RB, but TE isn't too shabby, either.

  • Show Some ID

    Jacksonville Jagoffs isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 4 years of NFL experience.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Jacksonville Jagoffs will need to get busy on the waiver wire in Week 5, as their only TE (Travis Kelce) and only K (Cairo Santos) will both be off that week.

  • Decently Mediocre

    While the bottom half of the Jacksonville Jagoffs roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 2), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 12).

  • Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up

    Jacksonville Jagoffs got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • A Dominating Pair

    Jacksonville Jagoffs has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Brandon Marshall and Thomas Rawls) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

Player Analysis

    • David Johnson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Johnson is Hungry

    And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank third in the NFL with 314 touches.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    182 Reasons for Jacksonville Jagoffs to Appreciate Brandon Marshall

    Marshall ranks eighth in the The League among WRs with 182 projected fantasy points.

    • Thomas Rawls, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 44
    Move Over Marshawn

    Rawls produced a ridiculous 5.6 YPC last season, and among all RBs, only Devonta Freeman and DeAngelo Williams appeared more often on first-place fantasy rosters.

    • Travis Kelce, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 68
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Jacksonville Jagoffs got a steal in snatching Travis Kelce in the sixth round (68th overall pick vs. ADP of 57.5).

    • Matt Jones, RB
    • Round 7, Pick 77
    Taking a Chance

    With their seventh-round pick, Jacksonville Jagoffs threw caution to the wind. They took Matt Jones at pick number 77 despite an ADP of 87.8 across all Yahoo! leagues.

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..."
