Last Man Standing received the No. 1 overall pick, and they coughed it up. Even though they had the top pick, they're projected to finish 10th in Ocean. Some good news: the team is notably strong at running back, as Jonathan Taylor and Saquon Barkley are slated to combine for the highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. Last Man Standing are looking at a final record of 3-11 (6,866 points).
- DeVante Parker
Last Man Standing scored a great late-round value in selecting Parker with the 12th pick in the 20th round, about nine rounds later than his ADP of 131. Coming off a season in which he grabbed 40 passes for 515 yards and 2 TDs in 9 games, totaling 255 fantasy points, Parker is projected to score 355 fantasy points with the Patriots. That makes him the No. 6 WR for this squad.
- Justin Fields
Going out on a Limb
Either you know something that your opponents don't or you got ahead of yourself with the choice of Fields with the 1st pick of the 5th round, about six rounds earlier than his ADP of 132. Granted, maybe you're onto something? Projected to score 819 fantasy points this season with the Bears, he seems set to outperform his rookie year when he threw for 1,870 yards and 7 TDs with 10 INTs and rushed for 420 yards and 2 TDs over 12 games, totaling 436 fantasy points. Based on projected points, Fields will slot in as the No. 1 QB for Last Man Standing to begin the season.
Last Man Standing will live and die with the Panthers this season, as the selections of DJ Moore, Sean Chandler, and Sam Darnold give them three players from Carolina, tied for the most of any team in Ocean. League-wide, the most popular team was the Cardinals, as 15 of them were selected in the draft.
Last Man Standing made the most of their five keepers, retaining them at around pick No. 308 on average, a little under 20 rounds later than their average ADP of 71.
Last Man Standing face a tough task in Week 11 when they have six players on a bye, led by Jaylen Waddle, DK Metcalf, and Chris Godwin. Perhaps leveling the playing field, RT17, your Week 11 opponent, will be facing a similar quandary with five players on a bye.
With a strength of schedule that ranks as the 2nd-most difficult according to projected records, Last Man Standing have one of the most challenging schedules in Ocean this season. But that doesn't mean you have to lose. You can't control strength of schedule, but you can control how involved you are. There are infinite paths to improve your team over the course of the season as long as you remain involved.

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.
