In Spite of Some Early-Round Reaches, Rose To Power Is a Team to Watch Out For

Draft Summary

Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. Rose To Power put together a quality team and is projected to finish in fifth-place in Dartmouth Drunks League at 7-6-0 (1,752 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Eli Manning (8th overall), RB Le'Veon Bell (32nd), WR Keenan Allen (17th), and TE Jordan Reed (41st) within the first five rounds. They also landed one of the best TE tandems in the league, as they have Reed and Jason Witten.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


While Week 11 has the most players on bye for Rose To Power (three), Week 8 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Along with having the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Rose To Power has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Stockpiling Talent at TE

    Rose To Power should be in good shape with three position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE is definitely the strongest among them.

  • May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

    Rose To Power might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Eli Manning) and second-drafted QB (Blake Bortles) have similar seasonal point projections.

  • Good to Have Balance, Right?

    While the bottom half of the Rose To Power roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 2), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Tajae Sharpe, Rose To Power pounced on him at pick No. 152.

  • Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in Dartmouth Drunks League, Rose To Power may have found a gem in Ameer Abdullah. Including his 596 projected return yards, he ranks seventh in the league with 1,545 all-purpose yards.

  • Digging Deep

    Tajae Sharpe is owned in only 8% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward Rose To Power for their faith! Or not.

Player Analysis

    • Eli Manning, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 8
    Like a Prancing Unicorn

    Eli Manning is a fantasy dream. He's predicted to finish fourth in the NFL in passing TDs and third in passing yards. If he lives up to those numbers, it should mean good things for Rose To Power.

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    261 Reasons for Rose To Power to Appreciate Keenan Allen

    Allen ranks 10th in the Dartmouth Drunks League among WRs with 261 projected fantasy points.

    • Le'Veon Bell, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 32
    How Rebellious of You

    Rose To Power said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Le'Veon Bell).

    • Jordan Reed, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 41
    Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law

    Jordan Reed is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 89 projected catches rank 10th in the league.

    • Melvin Gordon, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 65
    Was Melvin Gordon Worth it at Pick No. 65?

    Rose To Power sure hopes so. The Chargers' running back is projected to put up 181 points this year, after only netting 108 last year.

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..."
