Coinciding with Some Early-Round Reaches, Boom Stockalocka Needs to get to Work

Draft Summary

Jerry Rice once stated, "I feel like I'm the best, but you're not going to get me to say that." Well, guess what, Boom Stockalocka, he isn't going to say that about your team either. Because that would be a lie. Boom Stockalocka is expected to finish ninth in Victory is Mine League with a record of 4-9-0 (1,801 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Brandon Marshall (second round), Golden Tate (third round), and Tyler Lockett (fourth round). They ended up with the top TE duo in the league, as they added Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.


While Week 7 has the most players on bye for Boom Stockalocka (three), Week 10 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-difficult-than-average schedule. In addition to having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, Boom Stockalocka has the softest last four games of the season.

    Boom Stockalocka got off to a sluggish start, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • Potent Potential

    Dak Prescott and Christine Michael are a couple of late-round fliers with decent upside for Boom Stockalocka.

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.
