Out for Justice parlayed a solid draft slot (sixth overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 8-5-0 (1,642 points), they're projected to finish fifth in Phi Mu Dellta 16-17 League. They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Brandon Marshall (second round), Doug Baldwin (fourth round), and Allen Hurns (fifth round). Even so, they ended up with one of the worst groups of WRs in the league.
Out for Justice made use of their only keeper spot to hold on to Le'Veon Bell (14.3 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is less valuable than a first-round draft pick.
Week 5 is not looking like a fun one for fantasy football. Out for Justice should look into the joys of scrapbooking, or bird-watching, or just anything that isn't fantasy football. It might not be pretty. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the softest slates. Corresponding with the third-easiest overall schedule, Out for Justice also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.
Root, Root, Root for the Home Team
Out for Justice is a believer in the hopes of the Jacksonville Jaguars this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.
He Can Catch, Too
Charles Sims is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fourth among RBs with 536 projected receiving yards.
A Stretch of the Imagination
Grabbing Andre Ellington at pick 187 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Ellington is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
Returning to Excellence
- Le'Veon Bell, RB
- Round 1, Pick 6
He played in only six games, but Bell joined Adrian Peterson as the only NFL running backs to rush for 90+ yards per game last season.
181 More Reasons to Appreciate Brandon Marshall
- B. Marshall, WR
- Round 2, Pick 19
Marshall ranks eighth in the Phi Mu Dellta 16-17 League among WRs with 181 projected fantasy points.
- Doug Baldwin, WR
- Round 4, Pick 43
Out for Justice chose a WR who's highly likely to turn a deep ball into TD gold. Doug Baldwin is projected to rank fourth among NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 5.4 and TDs over 40 yards with 2.1.
Let Me Check it Again
- Allen Hurns, WR
- Round 5, Pick 54
Why can't I find Allen Hurns on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late-round flier."
Was Blake Bortles the Best Choice at Pick No. 67?
- Blake Bortles, QB
- Round 6, Pick 67
Out for Justice apparently thinks so. The Jaguars' signal-caller is projected to earn 351 points this year, after putting up 404 last year.
There are three positions that Out for Justice could look to improve, including TE and RB, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Virgil Green
- Rank 145, ADP 137
- Vance McDonald
- Rank 146, ADP 138
- Jordan Howard
- Rank 181, ADP 127
- Darren McFadden
- Rank 182, ADP 116

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.
