Led by an Elite Group of RBs, Goshawk Will Cruise Through This League

Draft Summary

Isiah Thompson holds the slowest 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine in the last decade with a mark of 6.02 seconds. That's still faster than this start to the season will be for Goshawk, which is projected to finish first in Victory is Mine League with a record of 10-3-0 (1,922 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Alshon Jeffery (second round), Randall Cobb (fourth round), and Jeremy Maclin (fifth round). They put together the best RB tandem in the league, as they added Adrian Peterson and LeSean McCoy.

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


Goshawk should just disappear for a while during Week 10. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the least difficult schedules. Goshawk 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

  • On Autopilot

    Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for Goshawk, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Jeremy Maclin) and fourth-ranked (Tavon Austin) wideouts.

  • A Talented Trio

    Goshawk has three above-average positions on their roster (RB, TE, and QB).

  • QB Controversy?

    Goshawk may have to rely on a Ouija board each week. Their top-drafted QB (Philip Rivers) and second-drafted QB (Tyrod Taylor) have fairly similar seasonal point projections.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With six "low-risk" players among their 15 picks, Goshawk is looking for dependable help.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the Goshawk roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).

  • Beginning with a Bang

    Goshawk got off to a sizzling start, amassing the most projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 340 touches, Adrian Peterson is projected to rank second in the NFL in that category. How touching, Goshawk.

    • Alshon Jeffery, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    258 Excuses to Cheer for Alshon Jeffery

    Jeffery ranks eighth in the Victory is Mine League among wideouts with 258 projected fantasy points.

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 31
    Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

    Get on up, it's LeSean McCoy time! He's predicted to run cool this season with 254 projected points.

    • Coby Fleener, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 66
    A Large Target for the QB

    Coby Fleener ranks fourth in the Victory is Mine League among TEs with 189 projected fantasy points.

    • Philip Rivers, QB
    • Round 7, Pick 79
    Arm Cannon

    Goshawk chose one of the most explosive QBs in the league in Philip Rivers. Among NFL QBs, he's forecasted to rank fifth in both plays over 40 yards with 11.4 and TDs over 40 yards with 4.3.

Best Available

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

    • Rank 238, ADP 133

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..."
