With Some Early Gambles, Can U Diggs It! Hasn't Quite Figured Out This Whole "Draft a Good Team" Thing

Draft Summary

What's important Can U Diggs It! is that you have fun, regardless of the final score. Like that quote from Vince Lombardi, "Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing." Oh wait no, that's not the right quote for this. Turns out there aren't many quotes about having fun and losing, so let's just get to the projections. Can U Diggs It! is expected to finish 11th in Whittier OC Battle League with a record of 2-11-0 (1,818 points). Even though Can U Diggs It! has five RBs on the roster, they are projected to average 128 points this season. This is a disappointing number due to the heavy investment at the position, as it is fewer than the league average of 165. They've ultimately got one of the worst groups of RBs in the league, as they have Dalvin Cook, Theo Riddick, Chris Thompson, and Danny Woodhead on their roster.

Let this mediocre draft inspire you to always do better. To win your league. To get in the Toyota Hall of Fame and inspire a nation. Nominate yourself today.

Schedule

Can U Diggs It! should just disappear for a while during Week 5. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with having the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Can U Diggs It! also has the second-hardest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Stockpiling Talent at TE

    Can U Diggs It! should be in good shape with three position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE is definitely the strongest among them.

  • Minnesota Vikings Fan?

    Can U Diggs It! is a believer in the hopes of the Minnesota Vikings this season, grabbing a couple of players on that team sooner than their ADPs might suggest.

  • Aging Stars

    The top half of the roster, from a projected points perspective, is relatively old (ranked No. 2 in the league with an average of 7.1 years of NFL experience), whereas the bottom half is fairly young (ranked No. 11 with 4.5 years).

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, Can U Diggs It! chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).

  • Can U Diggs It! Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Chris Thompson at pick 140 was just a bit of a stretch. Thompson is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Does Julio Jones Believe in UFOs?

    These all-purpose yardage figures are out of this world. Jones is projected to rank eighth in the league with 1,542 total yards.

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    A Threat in the Modern Age, Similar to "Beliebers"

    TE is the new secret weapon in the NFL, and Rob Gronkowski leads the way with 251 projected fantasy points.

    • Dalvin Cook, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 29
    How Rebellious of You

    Can U Diggs It! said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Dalvin Cook).

    • Stefon Diggs, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 44
    Trigger Happy

    With their fourth-round pick, Can U Diggs It! pulled the trigger. They drafted Stefon Diggs at pick number 44 despite an ADP of just 94.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Danny Woodhead, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 53
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Danny Woodhead, the weakest value of the round.

Best Available

Can U Diggs It! has three positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including DEF and RB, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Jacksonville Defense
    • Rank 183, ADP 144
    • Baltimore Defense
    • Rank 185, ADP 138
    • Latavius Murray

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..."
