While this draft by JETGAW didn't exactly set the world on fire, it didn't destroy their playoff aspirations either. They are expected to be in the mix for a playoff spot with a projected seventh-place finish in Guts & Glory League at 6-7-0 (1,817 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Allen Robinson (second round), Amari Cooper (third round), and T.Y. Hilton (fourth round). They also built the bottom group of RBs in the league, as they added Adrian Peterson, Melvin Gordon, DeAngelo Williams, and Bilal Powell.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, JETGAW 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 entire season, they have one of the least difficult slates. Corresponding with the second-easiest overall schedule, JETGAW also has the league's easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.
JETGAW is loaded at TE and DEF. Could they be willing to leverage some of that talent and listen to trade offers from other teams in Guts & Glory League?
Close to the Vest
JETGAW was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing nine "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, JETGAW chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).
Team of Champions
JETGAW 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 (Adrian Peterson, Allen Robinson, and DeAngelo Williams).
Pittsburgh's back-up made the most of his opportunity to start last year, and when the dust had settled on the 2015 season, only one RB (Devonta Freeman) appeared on more first-place rosters than DeAngelo.
Take One Play Off and He Burns You
Kirk Cousins likes to score quickly, ranking fifth among NFL QBs with 4.3 TDs over 40 yards.
Peterson is Hungry
- A. Peterson, RB
- Round 1, Pick 7
And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank second in the NFL with 323 touches.
Haters Gonna Hate
- Jarvis Landry, WR
- Round 5, Pick 47
The rest of Guts & Glory League overlooked a gem, and JETGAW made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Jarvis Landry.
The Heist Is On
- Jordan Reed, TE
- Round 6, Pick 54
The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, JETGAW got a steal in snatching Jordan Reed in the sixth round (54th overall pick vs. ADP of 39.2).
Was Jordan Matthews Worth it at Pick No. 67?
- J. Matthews, WR
- Round 7, Pick 67
JETGAW sure hopes so. The Eagles' WR is projected to earn 177 points this year, after putting up 189 last season.
K and RB are expected to be the weakest positions for JETGAW and a potential area of need.
- Shayne Graham
- Rank 221, ADP 95
- Nick Folk
- Rank 226, ADP 121
- Charles Sims
- Rank 119, ADP 128
- James White
- Rank 135, ADP 121

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.
