Led by a Quality Group of RBs, walter's Team Will be a Tough Team

Draft Summary

walter's Team put together an underrated roster that might not dominate week in and week out, but will be firmly entrenched in a playoff spot by season's end. They're projected to finish the season with an 8-6-0 (1,530) record in Yahoo Public 373633 League, which will be good enough for fifth. They went after guys who can tote the rock with their early picks, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs Todd Gurley (first round), Doug Martin (second round), and Thomas Rawls (fifth round). These guys could be the key to the season for walter's Team, as they are the top 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.

Schedule

Looking at the entire season, they have a harder-than-average schedule. walter's Team has the opportunity to start and finish with a flurry, as both the first four games and final four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Player Analysis

    • Todd Gurley, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 3

    • Doug Martin, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Old Fashioned

    walter's Team stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Todd Gurley and Doug Martin before targeting other positions.

    Move Over Marshawn

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.
