With Too Many Reaches Early, Wolfpack Obviously Hates Winning

Draft Summary

Someone get Chip Kelly on the line because it's time to make moves. Projected to finish 11th in Dartmouth Drunks League with a record of 4-9-0 (1,655 points), Wolfpack will have to get creative if they want to reach the postseason. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Aaron Rodgers (12th overall), RBs Matt Jones (36th) and Ryan Mathews (60th), and WRs Allen Robinson (13th) and Brandin Cooks (37th). They also built the worst group of RBs in the league, as they added Mathews, Jones, Frank Gore, and Jordan Howard.

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

Schedule

Week 9 would be a good opportunity for Wolfpack to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the toughest schedules. Corresponding with the second-most grueling overall schedule, Wolfpack also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • On Autopilot

    Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for Wolfpack, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Eric Decker) and fourth-ranked (Chris Hogan) wideouts.

  • Put All Your Eggs in One Basket

    And then watch that basket. Ignoring roster depth, Wolfpack chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Wolfpack grabbed a sleeper in Jordan Howard with pick No. 156.

  • Mr. Mendoza

    Jordan Howard is owned in only 1% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Wolfpack has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 12
    Is Aaron Rodgers Religious?

    With 369 projected points, Wolfpack will be hoping Rodgers is the answer to their prayers.

    • Matt Jones, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 36
    If it Ain't Broke

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

    • Kansas City, DEF
    • Round 6, Pick 61
    Was the 61st Pick the Right Time for a Defense?

    Wolfpack apparently believes it is. Kansas City's D is projected to notch 136 points this year, after producing 164 last year.

    • Blair Walsh, K
    • Round 7, Pick 84
    Was a Kicker the Best Choice at Pick No. 84?

    Wolfpack apparently thinks so. Blair Walsh is projected to earn 134 points this year, after putting up 155 last year.

    • Eric Decker, WR
    • Round 8, Pick 85
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Wolfpack got a steal in snatching Eric Decker in the eighth round (85th overall pick vs. ADP of 40.7).

Best Available

Wolfpack has three positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including TE and WR, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Dwayne Allen
    • Rank 114, ADP 127
    • Virgil Green
    • Rank 145, ADP 136
    • Stefon Diggs
    • Rank 89, ADP 115
    • Travis Benjamin
    • Rank 98, ADP 118

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..."
