Draft Summary

Even though g unit didn't have a high draft pick (eighth overall), it didn't matter, as they built a legit squad capable of taking it to any opponent that gets in their way. As far as projections go, they will probably finish third in LongDongs League with a record of 10-3-0 (1,510 points).

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

Keeper Summary

g unit took advantage of all three of their keeper slots. Their top-ranked retained players from an ADP perspective were: Rob Gronkowski (8.7 ADP), Allen Robinson (14.8 ADP), and Jamaal Charles (19.2 ADP). From an ADP perspective, their third-ranked keeper (Jamaal Charles) is more valuable than a second-round draft choice. Overall, the three keepers on g unit are projected to be slightly more productive (by 2.4%) than the draft picks they replaced.


g unit should use Week 11 to finally read War and Peace. Anything that isn't following their fantasy football team. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the least difficult schedules. g unit has the opportunity to exit the gates quickly, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • Positional Fortitude

    g unit has four stronger-than-average positions with TE and WR projected to lead the way.

  • Sky's the Limit

    With six players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, g unit hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    g unit chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    g unit has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Rob Gronkowski and Allen Robinson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • The Bargain Whisperer

    g unit was hunting for deals throughout the draft, snapping up five steals in the first 9 rounds (including Seattle, Keenan Allen, and Graham Gano).

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    g unit grabbed a sleeper in Tevin Coleman with pick No. 152.

Player Analysis

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 1, Pick 8
    A Repeat for Rob

    For the second straight year, Gronkowski appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than any other TE.

    • Allen Robinson, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    171 Reasons for g unit to Appreciate Allen Robinson

    Robinson ranks 10th in the LongDongs League among WRs with 171 projected fantasy points.

    • Jamaal Charles, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 32
    Haters Gonna Hate

    The rest of LongDongs League overlooked a gem, and g unit made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Jamaal Charles.

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 44
    Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law

    Keenan Allen is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 99 projected catches rank fifth in the league.

    • Melvin Gordon, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 68
    Was the 68th Pick the Right Time for Melvin Gordon?

    g unit apparently believes so. The Chargers' running back is projected to put up 151 points this year, after only netting 75 last year.

Best Available

g unit is projected to have a pair of below-average positions (DEF and K), but DEF 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..."
