Despite an Exciting Group of WRs, Show Me The Money Isn't Going to Scare Anyone

Draft Summary

While this draft by Show Me The Money didn't exactly set the world on fire, it didn't destroy their playoff aspirations either. They are expected to be in the mix for a playoff spot with a projected eighth-place finish in Fantasy Football University League at 4-7-2 (2,197 points). They clearly wanted to assemble a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on A.J. Green (first round), Keenan Allen (third round), and Martavis Bryant (fifth round). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, Show Me The Money will benefit. They are one of the best sets of WRs in the league.

Let this mediocre draft inspire you to always do better. To win your league. To get in the Toyota Hall of Fame and inspire a nation. Nominate yourself today.

Schedule

Week 6 may cause some frustration for Show Me The Money, as their top two projected scorers (Andy Dalton and A.J. Green) will be off with byes. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have a harder-than-average slate. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first month and final month of the season project to be close to league-average in terms of difficulty for Show Me The Money.

Draft Notes

  • Like Choosing your Favorite Kardashian

    Show Me The Money will have some tricky calls to make each week at RB, with a slim projected points difference between their third- (Mike Gillislee), fourth- (Ameer Abdullah), and fifth-ranked (Matt Forte) RBs.

  • Decent Idea, Mediocre Execution

    Show Me The Money will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 9, as their only TE (Rob Gronkowski) and only DEF (Pittsburgh) will both be idle that week.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, Show Me The Money chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).

  • Starting Slowly

    Show Me The Money got off to a sluggish start, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • He Can Catch, Too

    Duke Johnson Jr. is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks second among RBs with 632 projected receiving yards.

  • Show Me The Money Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Sean Lee at pick 210 was just a bit of a stretch. Lee is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    Show Me The Money Gets Groovy With Green

    A.J. averaged 11.0 targets, 7.3 receptions, and 107.1 yards in nine games prior to getting injured in Week 11 last year. The 29-year-old Bengals star is healthy and primed for a big campaign this season.

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Haters Gonna Hate

    The rest of Fantasy Football University League overlooked a gem, and Show Me The Money made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Rob Gronkowski.

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 31
    Rethinking That One

    While drafted 31st overall, Keenan Allen isn't projected among the NFL's top-20 in either receiving TDs (24th with 7.9) or receiving yards (28th with 1,015).

    • Lamar Miller, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 42
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Show Me The Money didn't grab their first RB (Lamar Miller) until the fourth round.

    • M. Bryant, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 55
    Defensive Coordinators Plan Specifically for Bryant

    Martavis Bryant is expected to reach paydirt 10.5 times, placing him third in the NFL in projected receiving TDs.

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..."
