Led by a Talented WR Corps, Redskins 76 Is Poised to Dominate

Draft Summary

With the second overall pick, Redskins 76 put on a show for the competition. Drafting a complete team capable of winning week in and week out, they're projected to finish first in low country League with a record of 13-0-0 (1,892 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Antonio Brown (first round), Brandon Marshall (third round), and Sammy Watkins (fourth round). Redskins 76 will rely heavily on this group, as they are the most prolific group of WRs in the league.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.

Schedule

Week 9 might require some waiver-wire magic from Redskins 76. They have seven players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the least challenging schedule. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, Redskins 76 also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Stockpiling Talent at WR

    Redskins 76 should be in good shape with six position groups projected to be better-than-average. WR is definitely the strongest among them.

  • On the Rise

    Redskins 76 hopes to break through this season, led by six players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.

  • Team of Winners

    Redskins 76 is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Antonio Brown, Brandon Marshall, and Carson Palmer).

  • Big D

    Redskins 76 elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • It's How You Finish

    Redskins 76 made every other squad look silly after some amazing halftime adjustments, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

    • Lamar Miller, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 15

    • Alshon Jeffery, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 34
    On a Scale of 1 to America

    How free will Alshon Jeffery get in the secondary? He's projected to put up 1,351 receiving yards this year.

    • Carlos Hyde, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 47
    Was Carlos Hyde Worth it at Pick No. 47?

    Redskins 76 sure hopes so. The 49ers' running back is projected to put up 175 points this year, after only netting 70 last year.

Best Available

The best move for Redskins 76 may be to let the season play out some before making a move, however, K is one area they could potentially upgrade if they can't be patient.

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..."
