Behind an Elite Backfield, KayCee Chiefs Will Likely Reach Playoffs

Draft Summary

Turning a bottom-half draft slot into top-half results is the sign of a strong effort by the GM. Such was the case with KayCee Chiefs, which flipped its No. 7 overall pick into a projected 4th-place finish in Ocean. The team is particularly tough at the running back position, as Christian McCaffrey and Leonard Fournette are expected to combine for the 3rd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. KayCee Chiefs are predicted to put up a total of 7,550 points based on the current roster, which would result in an 11-3 record.

  • Christian McCaffrey

Best Keeper

KayCee Chiefs undoubtedly know how to pick 'em, and McCaffrey rates as the surest bet among the keepers to elevate his game. Coming off a season in which he ran for 442 yards and 1 TD and snagged 37 passes for 343 yards and 1 TD in 7 games, totaling 389 fantasy points, McCaffrey is projected to score 870 fantasy points with the Panthers. That makes him a valuable No. 1 RB for this squad.

  • Kirk Cousins

Stretch Pick

You might have been a bit overeager when making the decision to select Cousins with the 7th pick in the 3rd round, about seven rounds earlier than his ADP of 122. Projected to score 764 fantasy points this season with the Vikings, he will look to match last year when he threw for 4,221 yards and 33 TDs with 7 INTs to post 774 fantasy points. Based on projected points, Cousins will slot in as the No. 3 QB for KayCee Chiefs to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • With only three tight ends off the board, not including keepers, KayCee Chiefs saw a run coming and got in early, taking Zach Ertz with the 55th overall pick. In the next 12 non-keeper picks, three more tight ends came off the board.

  • KayCee Chiefs appear to be especially deep at wide receiver, drafting the most of any team in the league with eight, outpacing the league average of just 5.9.

  • If you're not first, you're last. You beat your opponents to the punch at quarterback, drafting Matthew Stafford (No. 7 overall) as the first QB off the board. You showed more patience at other positions, becoming the last manager in the league to draft a running back and wide receiver with Melvin Gordon III (No. 90 overall) and DeAndre Hopkins (No. 66 overall).

  • Week 7 could bring a tough task for KayCee Chiefs, as they have six players on a bye, led by Matthew Stafford, Kirk Cousins, and Van Jefferson. Your Week 7 opponent, RT17, won't be quite as short-handed with only two players (Justin Jefferson and Jordan Hicks) getting the week off.

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..."
