Slated for an Eighth-Place Finish, JMACK Has a Great Team if They Don't Care About Winning

Draft Summary

Playoffs?! JMACK is projected to finish in eighth-place in Gresham Toyota League with a 4-10-0 (1,882 points) record and you want to talk about playoffs?! JMACK should just hope they can win a few games, let alone reach the playoffs. They wanted to make sure they had plenty of wideout options, picking Odell Beckham Jr. (first round), Brandin Cooks (second round), Emmanuel Sanders (sixth round), and Sammy Watkins (seventh round) with four of their first seven selections. A lot will be expected of this group, as they are one of the best WR combos in the league.

Let this mediocre draft inspire you to always do better. To win your league. To get in the Toyota Hall of Fame and inspire a nation. Nominate yourself today.

Schedule

JMACK should do pretty much anything other than watch football during Week 8. They have seven players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the easiest slates. Corresponding with the third-easiest overall schedule, JMACK also has the softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Like 10,000 Spoons When All You Need Is A Knife

    JMACK's only above-average positional grouping is K.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Apparently JMACK missed the point of drafting a back-up defense. In Week 8, both Arizona and Jacksonville will be on bye.

  • Big D

    JMACK elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Mike Glennon, JMACK pounced on him at pick No. 165.

  • Rocket Arm

    Carson Palmer has a cannon, projected to rank third among all QBs with 3 TDs over 40 yards.

  • A Stretch of the Imagination

    Grabbing Mike Glennon at pick 165 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Glennon is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • O. Beckham Jr., WR
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Big Numbers in the Big Apple

    Last season, Beckham logged his third straight campaign of 90+ receptions, 1,300+ receiving yards, and 10+ TDs. Only one NFL player (Mike Evans) saw more targets in 2016.

    • Brandin Cooks, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 16
    On a Scale of 1 to America

    How free will Brandin Cooks be in the secondary? He's projected to rack up 1,231 receiving yards this year.

    • C. McCaffrey, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 25
    How Rebellious of You

    JMACK said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Christian McCaffrey).

    • Tom Brady, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 36
    Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, JMACK got a steal in the fourth round, when they selected Tom Brady (36th overall pick vs. ADP of 24.7).

    • E. Sanders, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 56
    JMACK Upgrades WR Corps with Sanders at Pick No. 56

    The Broncos' wide receiver is projected to get 138 points this year, just a bit better than last season.

Best Available

With five subpar positions on JMACK, TE and RB are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

    • Julius Thomas
    • Rank 146, ADP 132
    • Jason Witten
    • Rank 148, ADP 126
    • Jacquizz Rodgers
    • Rank 119, ADP 124
    • Rex Burkhead
    • Rank 124, ADP 125

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..."
