Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, Chad's Notable Team Has Roster Filled with Meh

Draft Summary

Joe Theismann once said "a genius is a guy like Norman Einstein." No one will mistake the GM of Chad's Notable Team for Norman Einstein after this draft, putting together a roster that is projected to finish seventh in BeerDrinkersUnite League and miss the playoffs. Unless changes are made, they will likely finish with a record of 5-8-0 (2,493 points). With this kind of investment in the WR position by Chad's Notable Team, they can only hope this trio resembles "The Greatest Show on Turf." They used their first three picks to draft Julio Jones in the first round (5th overall), Allen Robinson in the second (16th), and Mike Evans in the third (25th). A lot will be expected of this group, as they are the highest-scoring group of WRs in the league.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.

Schedule

Chad's Notable Team should drop off the grid during Week 5. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the most daunting schedules. Along with having the second-most demanding overall schedule, Chad's Notable Team also has the league's second-toughest first four games and second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    Chad's Notable Team is loaded at WR, but QB isn't too shabby, either.

  • May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

    Chad's Notable Team might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Russell Wilson) and second-drafted QB (Andy Dalton) have similar seasonal point projections.

  • Checked Out Early

    Chad's Notable Team didn't exactly wrap up the draft on a high note, ending up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

    Chad's Notable Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • Team of Champions?

    Chad's Notable Team is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Julio Jones, Allen Robinson, and Thomas Rawls.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Chad's Notable Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

Player Analysis

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Just Heave it to Julio

    The lone NFL player to see 200 targets last season, only DeAndre Hopkins appeared on more first-place rosters than Jones in 2015.

    • Mike Evans, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 25
    Doling Out Nightmares

    Mike Evans will look to haunt the dreams of opposing corners, as he's projected to finish sixth in the NFL with 8.5 receiving TDs.

    • Thomas Rawls, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 36
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Chad's Notable Team didn't grab their first RB (Thomas Rawls) until the fourth round.

    • Russell Wilson, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 45
    Effective, Efficient, and Elite

    Wilson joined Brady and Rodgers as the only QBs to throw for more than 25 touchdowns and have fewer than 10 interceptions last season.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 56
    Was DeMarco Murray the Best Choice at Pick No. 56?

    Chad's Notable Team apparently thinks so. The Titans' RB is projected to earn 175 points this year, after putting up 194 last season.

Best Available

While Chad's Notable Team is projected to have four subpar positions, K is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.

    • Nick Folk
    • Rank 226, ADP 122
    • Josh Brown
    • Rank 228, ADP 136
    • Cairo Santos

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..."
