Despite a Set of Monster RBs, Luck Dynasty Has a Solidly Average Roster

Draft Summary

Maybe if Luck Dynasty purchases a lift kit and some giant tires for this roster it won't seem so average. The playoffs are not out of reach for this team, but it will require some effort. They are projected to finish seventh in LongDongs with a record of 6-7-0 (1,467 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

Luck Dynasty made use of all three of their keeper slots, focusing on roster balance. They elected to retain a QB (Andrew Luck, 36.7 ADP), RB (Adrian Peterson, 8.8 ADP), and WR (DeAndre Hopkins, 8.5 ADP). On average, their three keepers are slightly more valuable (by 1.9%) than the average draft picks that they replaced.


Week 10 might require some waiver-wire magic from Luck Dynasty. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the most challenging slates. Luck Dynasty has the opportunity to finish the season on 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

    Luck Dynasty will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Michael Floyd), fourth- (DeVante Parker), and fifth-ranked (Tyler Lockett) wideouts.

  • Asset Allocation

    RB is the strongest position for Luck Dynasty, though DEF and K aren't too shabby either.

  • Up, Up, and Away

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

  • Decent Idea, Mediocre Execution

    Luck Dynasty will need to get busy on the waiver wire in Week 11, as their only TE (Antonio Gates) and only K (Josh Lambo) will both be off that week.

  • Checked Out Early

    Luck Dynasty didn't exactly wrap up the draft on a high note, ending up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    Luck Dynasty has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (DeAndre Hopkins and Adrian Peterson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

Player Analysis

    • D. Hopkins, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    Targeting the Texan

    Hopkins was one of just three wideouts (along with Julio Jones and Antonio Brown) to get at least 190 targets last year, and only Devonta Freeman and Tom Brady appeared more often on championship rosters than Houston's stud WR.

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 22
    Haters Gonna Hate

    The rest of LongDongs League overlooked a gem, and Luck Dynasty made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Adrian Peterson.

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 3, Pick 34
    Luck Dynasty's Stud Signal-Caller

    Andrew Luck is projected to rack up 340 points this year, enough to rank sixth among all QBs.

    • Carlos Hyde, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 46
    Carlos Hyde Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. Luck Dynasty should be in decent shape if Hyde gets his 292 projected touches this year.

    • Donte Moncrief, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 58
    Rethinking That One

    Donte Moncrief went with the 58th pick, even though he's projected to fall outside of the top-20 in the NFL in both receiving TDs (23rd) and receiving yards (25th) with 7.2 and 1,006 respectively.

Best Available

While Luck Dynasty is expected to be weak across three positions, QB is definitely their worst unit and an area of need.

    • Ryan Tannehill
    • Rank 141, ADP 128
    • Jay Cutler
    • Rank 145, ADP 124
    • Alex Smith
    • Rank 153, ADP 117
    • Joe Flacco
    • Rank 158, ADP 117

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..."
