Despite a Monster Backfield, All-Milio Probably Shouldn't Gloat About This Roster

Draft Summary

With the right set of circumstances, All-Milio could potentially make the playoffs. A tough draft spot led to a fairly tough draft. Picking 11th overall, they're projected to land in eighth place in Celtic Fantasy Football League with a record of 6-7-0 (1,693 points). Despite selecting six WRs for their roster, All-Milio may not get what they think they will out of the position. Their WRs are projected to average 156 points this season, fewer than the league average of 183. They ultimately landed the bottom set of WRs in the league, as they added DeAndre Hopkins, Pierre Garcon, Randall Cobb, and Corey Coleman.

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

Week 11 might not be the highest scoring week for All-Milio, as their top two projected scorers (Cam Newton and Andrew Luck) will be off with byes. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have one of the softest slates. All-Milio has the opportunity to close with a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • Earning Your Paycheck

    All-Milio will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Randall Cobb), fourth- (Corey Coleman), and fifth-ranked (Chris Hogan) wideouts.

  • Strength in Numbers

    TE is the best position for All-Milio, though RB and QB are also stronger-than-average.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the All-Milio roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 11).

  • Scraping the Wire in Week 11

    Grabbing two QBs (Cam Newton and Andrew Luck) that share a bye week was a bold move by the manager of All-Milio.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    All-Milio chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    All-Milio has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Melvin Gordon and Jimmy Graham) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

Player Analysis

    • D. Freeman, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 11
    Advanced Math

    If All-Milio had a nickel for every time Devonta Freeman is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 272 nickels.

    • Melvin Gordon, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    Old Fashioned

    All-Milio stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Devonta Freeman and Melvin Gordon before targeting other positions.

    • Jimmy Graham, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 38
    Stepping on a Banana Peel

    Jimmy Graham slipping to All-Milio could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

    • Pierre Garcon, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 59
    A Bit of a Reach

    All-Milio went out on a limb with their fifth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Pierre Garcon has an ADP of 106, but he was grabbed at pick No. 59. Patience is a virtue, All-Milio.

    • Cam Newton, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 62
    Not Afraid to Scramble

    With 475 projected rushing yards (ranked second among QBs), Cam Newton has multiple ways to bring in points.

Best Available

All-Milio has a couple positions they may look to upgrade (WR and K), but WR is the area they'll want to focus their attention first.

    • Cooper Kupp
    • Rank 157, ADP 127
    • Nelson Agholor
    • Rank 163, ADP 127
    • Devin Funchess
    • Rank 164, ADP 129

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..."
