Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, He-Men Wins at Fantasy Football and Life

Draft Summary

Drafting 10th, He-Men took advantage of their weaker opponents and drafted a team capable of making some noise come playoff time. They are expected to finish third in Phi Mu Dellta 16-17 with a record of 9-4-0 (1,733 points). With five RBs on the roster, He-Men clearly has an eye for running back talent. Their RBs are projected to average 158 points this season, which is higher than the league average of 129. They also landed the best group of RBs in the league, as they have David Johnson, Adrian Peterson, DeMarco Murray, and James White on their team.

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

Keeper Summary

He-Men used their only keeper slot to hold on to Adrian Peterson (9 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is as valuable as a draft pick in the bottom half of the first round.

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, He-Men has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the softest schedules. Along with having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, He-Men also has the softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • On Autopilot

    Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for He-Men, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (DeMarco Murray) and fourth-ranked (James White) RBs.

  • Asset Allocation

    RB is the strongest position for He-Men, though TE and K aren't too shabby either.

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    At three different positions, He-Men picked up projected top-3 players (David Johnson, Adrian Peterson, and Greg Olsen).

  • Drink Plenty of Milk

    With an average of 7.5 years of NFL experience, He-Men has the greatest chance of losing a player to osteoporosis.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With eight "low-risk" players among their 16 picks, He-Men is looking for dependable help.

  • Bargain Shopper

    With six steals in the first 10 rounds (including Antonio Gates, Eli Manning, and Greg Olsen), He-Men made some shrewd moves.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    Advanced Math

    If He-Men had a nickel for every time Adrian Peterson is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 339 nickels.

    • David Johnson, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    Old Fashioned

    He-Men stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Adrian Peterson and David Johnson before targeting other positions.

    • Greg Olsen, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 58
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Phi Mu Dellta 16-17 League overlooked a gem, and He-Men made the highest value pick of the round by taking Greg Olsen.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 63
    Was the 63rd Pick the Right Time for DeMarco Murray?

    He-Men apparently believes so. The Titans' running back is projected to score 141 points this year, nearly identical to his total last year.

    • Eli Manning, QB
    • Round 7, Pick 82
    A Super Duper Signal-Caller

    Eli Manning is projected to rack up 364 points this year, enough to rank seventh among all QBs.

Best Available

He-Men is projected to have a pair of below-average positions (WR and QB), but WR is clearly their weakest unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.

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..."
