The GM of Double Downers took the fourth overall pick in the draft and turned it into a pretty decent team. Unless of course they planned on winning, because if that was the plan, then it didn't go very well. Double Downers will need to make some moves to improve their playoff chances, currently projected to finish sixth in Yahoo Public 391938 League with a record of 7-7-0 (1,507 points). With their first five picks, Double Downers aimed for balance, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (24th overall), RBs Todd Gurley (4th) and Matt Forte (37th), and WRs Keenan Allen (17th) and Doug Baldwin (44th). They also built the worst group of WRs in the league, as they added Allen, Baldwin, Michael Floyd, and Josh Gordon.
Week 8 might require some artful managing from Double Downers. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a tougher-than-average slate. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Double Downers.
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
Double Downers nabbed a sleeper in Nick Folk with pick No. 124.
With their ninth-round pick, Double Downers pulled the trigger. They drafted Josh Gordon at pick number 84 despite an ADP of just 118.1 across all Yahoo! leagues.
No RB by Committee Here
- Todd Gurley, RB
- Round 1, Pick 4
Look up "workhorse back" in the dictionary and there is a picture of Todd Gurley. Double Downers should be in good shape if he reaches his league-leading 327 projected touches this year.
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 2, Pick 17
Keenan Allen is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 99 projected catches rank fifth in the league.
Do You Know if Aaron Rodgers is Religious?
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 3, Pick 24
With 316 projected points, Double Downers is hoping Rodgers will be the answer to their prayers.
- Matt Forte, RB
- Round 4, Pick 37
With 7 rushing TDs, Matt Forte is projected to finish 10th in the NFL in that category.
Was Michael Floyd Worth it at Pick No. 57?
- Michael Floyd, WR
- Round 6, Pick 57
Double Downers sure hopes so. The Cardinals' WR is projected to put up 131 points this year, after getting 121 last season.
Double Downers could potentially upgrade WR and TE, but WR is the position they'll want to focus on first.
- Steve Smith Sr.
- Rank 112, ADP 113

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.
