Predicted to Finish Fourth, MTSATT Expects to Factor Heavily Into Playoff Picture

Draft Summary

Putting together a playoff-caliber roster, MTSATT didn't break any records with this draft, but they put together a quality team that will be tough to match up against. Looking at their schedule, they figure to reach the playoffs with a 9-4-0 record (2,160 points) and fourth-place finish in FOOTBALL NUTS League. They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (23rd overall), RBs Jordan Howard (18th) and Kareem Hunt (38th), and WRs Antonio Brown (3rd) and Larry Fitzgerald (43rd). They finished the draft with the most prolific QB pair in the league, as they have Rodgers and Dak Prescott on the roster.

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

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, MTSATT has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the least-difficult slates. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, MTSATT also has the league's easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Positional Fortitude

    MTSATT has four positions that are better than league average. While TE, RB, and K are projected to be good, QB is the strongest on MTSATT.

  • Risk Averse

    MTSATT minimized risk by choosing eight consistent players among their 14 picks.

  • Team of Winners

    MTSATT is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Antonio Brown, Jordan Howard, and Aaron Rodgers).

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Hoping to play the favorable matchups week-to-week, MTSATT chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • Better Late Than Never

    MTSATT finished on a high note, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • Single Serving

    Going with just a single TE (Martellus Bennett) and K (Sebastian Janikowski), MTSATT opted to add depth at other positions.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    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 110 balls this year.

    • Jordan Howard, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Turn Up The Volume

    With 287 touches, Jordan Howard is projected to rank seventh in the NFL in that category. MTSATT demands more!

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 3, Pick 23
    Amazing Aaron

    Rodgers was the only quarterback to pass for 40 touchdowns last season, and among QBs, only Tom Brady appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters.

    • Kareem Hunt, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 38
    Apparently ADP is Overrated

    With their fourth-round pick, MTSATT pulled the trigger. They took Kareem Hunt at pick number 38 despite an ADP of just 72.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • L. Fitzgerald, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 43
    Let Me Check it Again

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

Best Available

DEF and WR are expected to be the worst positions for MTSATT and a potential area of need.

    • Carolina Defense
    • Rank 161, ADP 108
    • Los Angeles Defense
    • Rank 171, ADP 128
    • Eric Decker
    • Rank 96, ADP 109

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..."
