Yikes. Was this on purpose? We'll assume it was and that maybe the GM Abdullah oblongata was just having an off day. Some work will be required if Abdullah oblongata wants to finish anywhere other than last. Projections suggest they'll go 2-11-0 (1,779 points). They went with the SMU "Pony Express" draft strategy, loading up on three tailbacks in the first five rounds, selecting DeMarco Murray (second round), Ty Montgomery (third round), and C.J. Anderson (fifth round). They finished the draft with the bottom set of WRs in the league, as they have Michael Thomas, Larry Fitzgerald, Tyreek Hill, and Marvin Jones Jr. on their team.
Abdullah oblongata should use Week 8 to finally build that mini trainyard. Really just about anything other than checking fantasy football will do. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have one of the toughest schedules. Abdullah oblongata has the opportunity to finish the season on a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
RB or Bust
RB is the only stronger-than-average position group for Abdullah oblongata.
On the Rise
Abdullah oblongata hopes to break through this season, led by five players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Abdullah oblongata will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 8, as their only K (Mason Crosby) and only DEF (New York) will both be on bye that week.
No Back-Up No Cry
Ignoring roster depth, Abdullah oblongata chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).
Take One Play Off and He Burns You
Derek Carr likes to score quickly, ranking second among NFL QBs with 3 TDs over 40 yards.
Maybe Thomas Will Surprise
- Michael Thomas, WR
- Round 1, Pick 12
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Michael Thomas was ultimately the weakest value pick of the round.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- DeMarco Murray, RB
- Round 2, Pick 13
DeMarco Murray was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
He Can Catch, Too
- Ty Montgomery, RB
- Round 3, Pick 36
Ty Montgomery is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fifth among RBs with 531 projected receiving yards.
Rethinking That One
- Tyreek Hill, WR
- Round 4, Pick 37
While drafted 37th overall, Tyreek Hill isn't projected among the NFL's top-50 in either receiving TDs (88th with 4.6) or receiving yards (71st with 761).
Climbing The Ladder
- L. Fitzgerald, WR
- Round 6, Pick 61
Currently in ninth place with 14,389 career receiving yards, Fitzgerald is just 904 yards away from moving all the way up to third place all-time. Only five WRs (Evans, Nelson, Brown, Cooper, Hilton) appeared on more championship rosters last season.
While Abdullah oblongata is projected to have five below-average positions, QB is clearly their weakest unit and should be upgraded first.
- Matthew Stafford
- Rank 102, ADP 113
- Andy Dalton
- Rank 104, ADP 118
- Eli Manning
- Rank 115, ADP 123
- Carson Palmer
- Rank 121, ADP 131

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.
