Despite an Exciting Group of WRs, jizzballz Will Need to Improve to Reach Playoffs

Draft Summary

Joe Theismann once said "a genius is a guy like Norman Einstein." No one will mistake the GM of jizzballz for Norman Einstein after this draft, putting together a roster that is projected to finish sixth in FFL 2K17 League and miss the playoffs. Unless changes are made, they will likely finish with a record of 7-6-0 (1,682 points). They clearly wanted to assemble a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Antonio Brown (first round), Doug Baldwin (second round), and Martavis Bryant (fifth round). A lot will be expected of this group, as they are the most prolific set of WRs in the league.

You're close to greatness. And if being close isn't good enough for you, you might be worthy of the Toyota Hall of Fame. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Week 9 might require some waiver-wire magic from jizzballz. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the softest schedules. In addition to having the second-easiest overall schedule, jizzballz also has the league's easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • The Best Player Plays

    jizzballz is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 5.2 years of NFL experience.

  • Tennessee Titans Fan?

    jizzballz reached twice to draft a Tennessee Titans player.

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Josh Doctson, jizzballz pounced on him at pick No. 164.

  • A Multifaceted Machine

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

  • Mr. Mendoza

    Josh Doctson is owned in only 9% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) jizzballz has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Ask And You Shall Receive

    Frequently the No. 1 overall pick last year, Brown lived up to the hype. Among all wide receivers, only Mike Evans and Jordy Nelson appeared on more championship rosters than Brown last season.

    • Doug Baldwin, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    Just Heave it to Doug Baldwin

    Baldwin ranks seventh in the FFL 2K17 League among WRs with 190 projected fantasy points.

    • C. McCaffrey, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 24
    If it Ain't Broke

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

    • Marcus Mariota, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 37
    Marcus Mariota Likes His Eggs Scrambled

    And a little runny, eh? Mariota is projected to deliver 405 rushing yards, and ranks fourth among QBs in that category.

    • M. Bryant, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 44
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of FFL 2K17 League overlooked a gem, and jizzballz made the highest value pick of the round by taking Martavis Bryant.

Best Available

While jizzballz is expected to be weak across four positions, RB is definitely their worst unit and an area of need.

    • Theo Riddick
    • Rank 110, ADP 126
    • Jeremy Hill
    • Rank 111, ADP 115
    • Jacquizz Rodgers
    • Rank 124, ADP 125

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..."
