Led by an Elite Group of RBs, In Chip We Trust Has a Legit Squad

Draft Summary

Picking late (seventh overall), In Chip We Trust did what they could with what they were given. While this team isn't a juggernaut by any means, it's a team capable of reaching the playoffs if the chips fall their way. They are expected to finish third in Gresham Toyota with a record of 9-5-0 (1,954 points). They obviously understand how important the running back position is in fantasy football. They used three of their first five picks on RBs Jay Ajayi (first round), DeMarco Murray (second round), and C.J. Anderson (fifth round). They ultimately have the bottom QB combo in the league, as they have Philip Rivers and Jay Cutler on the roster.

You're close to greatness. And if being close isn't good enough for you, you might be worthy of the Toyota Hall of Fame. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Week 11 might require some artful managing from In Chip We Trust. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the most difficult schedules. In addition to having the second-most demanding overall schedule, In Chip We Trust also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Fortune Favors the Old

    Leading the Gresham Toyota League with an average of 8.3 years of NFL experience per player, In Chip We Trust is the team most likely to have a player qualify for a senior citizen discount.

  • Decently Mediocre

    While the bottom half of the In Chip We Trust roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).

  • Team of Winners

    In Chip We Trust is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Jay Ajayi, DeMarco Murray, and T.Y. Hilton).

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Hoping to play the favorable matchups week-to-week, In Chip We Trust chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • It's How You Finish

    In Chip We Trust must have had a motivational halftime speech, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • Digging Deep

    Alex Smith is owned in only 4% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward In Chip We Trust for their faith! Or not.

Player Analysis

    • Jay Ajayi, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    Jay Ajayi Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. In Chip We Trust should be in decent shape if Ajayi gets his 309 projected touches this year.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    Old Fashioned

    In Chip We Trust stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Jay Ajayi and DeMarco Murray before targeting other positions.

    • T.Y. Hilton, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 27
    Thank You, T.Y.!

    Hilton notched career-highs in targets, receptions, and receiving yards last year. Only three wide receivers (Evans, Nelson, Brown) appeared more often on fantasy rosters that had earned a spot in their league's playoffs.

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 34
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Gresham Toyota League overlooked a gem, and In Chip We Trust made the highest value pick of the round by taking Rob Gronkowski.

    • Golden Tate, WR
    • Round 7, Pick 67
    Go Big or Go Home

    Golden Tate is a constant threat to go deep, ranking second among NFL WRs in TDs over 40 yards with 2.1.

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..."
