Led by an Elite Group of RBs, OSCAR's Team Has Look of a Playoff Team

Draft Summary

Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. OSCAR's Team put together a quality team and is projected to finish in fourth-place in Yahoo Public 373633 League at 8-6-0 (1,615 points). They loaded up on pass-catching weapons early on, using four of their first seven selections to acquire WRs Brandin Cooks (third round), Kelvin Benjamin (fourth round), Jeremy Maclin (sixth round), and Jordan Matthews (seventh round). They also have one of the highest-scoring groups of RBs in the league, as they added Ezekiel Elliott, Jamaal Charles, and Justin Forsett to the team.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.


OSCAR's Team should use Week 7 to consider life's great mysteries, like why there's only one word for thesaurus. That's still time better spent than checking fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the easiest schedules. In addition to having the third-easiest overall schedule, OSCAR's Team has the toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

    OSCAR's Team might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Eli Manning) and second-drafted QB (Matthew Stafford) have similar seasonal point projections.

  • Good to Have Balance, Right?

    While the bottom half of the OSCAR's Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).

  • Big D

    OSCAR's Team elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • Super Sleepers

    At picks No. 126 and 146, OSCAR's Team snagged a couple of late-round fliers with upside in Corey Coleman and Matt Bryant.

  • It's How You Finish

    OSCAR's Team must have had a motivational halftime speech, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • Do You Know if Eli Manning is Religious?

    With 298 projected points, OSCAR's Team is hoping Manning will be the answer to their prayers.

Player Analysis

    • E. Elliott, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 322 touches, Ezekiel Elliott is projected to rank third in the NFL in that category. How touching, OSCAR's Team.

    • Jamaal Charles, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    Old Fashioned

    OSCAR's Team stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Ezekiel Elliott and Jamaal Charles before targeting other positions.

    • K. Benjamin, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 35
    Delivering Nightmares

    Kelvin Benjamin will look to haunt the dreams of opposing corners, as he's projected to finish sixth in the NFL with 8.6 receiving TDs.

    • Greg Olsen, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 46
    He's a Talented TE, Totes McGotes

    Greg Olsen is projected to finish third in the NFL among TEs in both TD receptions (with 7.3) and receiving yards (with 975).

    • Jeremy Maclin, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 55
    Was Jeremy Maclin Worth it at Pick No. 55?

    OSCAR's Team sure hopes so. The Chiefs' WR is projected to have 150 points this year, almost the same as his total from last season.

Best Available

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..."
