Despite an Exciting Set of WRs, Tenacious Can Make the Playoffs if They Just Replace Most of the Team

Draft Summary

Tenacious should consider renaming the team "Learning Experience," because that's what this draft was. Picking 10th, Tenacious bumbled their way through their picks, leading to a projected finish of 10th in Dartmouth Drunks League with a record of 4-9-0 (1,710 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Drew Brees (15th overall), RB Thomas Rawls (34th), WR Antonio Brown (10th), and TE Greg Olsen (39th) within the first five rounds. They also landed one of the highest-scoring groups of WRs in the league, as they have Brown, Michael Floyd, and Allen Hurns on the roster.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.


Tenacious should use Week 5 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like what was the greatest thing before sliced bread? No, seriously, think about it. It's better than thinking about fantasy football that week. They have six 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 most difficult slates. Tenacious will have to be on top of their game as the playoffs approach, as the last four games of their season are projected to be more difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • On Autopilot

    Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for Tenacious, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (T.J. Yeldon) and fourth-ranked (Kenneth Dixon) RBs.

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    At three different positions, Tenacious picked up projected top-3 players (Antonio Brown, Drew Brees, and Greg Olsen).

  • A Triumvirate of Talent

    Tenacious has three above-average positions on their roster (QB, DEF, and WR).

  • Risk Averse

    Tenacious minimized risk by choosing six consistent players among their 14 picks.

  • Golden Handcuff

    Tenacious hedged their bets by scooping up C.J. Prosise in the 13th round to back up Thomas Rawls, his Seahawks teammate (a third-round selection).

  • Checked Out Early

    Tenacious didn't exactly wrap up the draft on a high note, ending up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    Hands Team

    With a grip that would make Spider-Man jealous, Antonio Brown has serious value in all PPR leagues. He's projected to catch an NFL-leading 132 balls this year.

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 15

    Tenacious drafted the most explosive QB in the league in Drew Brees. He's projected to drop bombs on DBs this year, to lead NFL QBs in plays over 40 yards with 12.7 and TDs over 40 yards with 4.9.

    • Thomas Rawls, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 34
    How Rebellious of You

    Tenacious said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Thomas Rawls).

    • Greg Olsen, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 39
    All Over the Field

    Greg Olsen is projected to rank among the top-5 for TEs in both receiving TDs (fourth with 7) and receiving yards (third with 949).

    • Michael Floyd, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 58
    That Just Happened

    Why can't I find Michael Floyd on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late-round value."

Best Available

While Tenacious is projected to have three subpar positions, K is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.

    • Rank 204, ADP 88

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..."
