Headlined by an Elite Set of RBs, Daniel's Team Could Have this League Locked Up

Draft Summary

Having the top pick in the draft doesn't guarantee a title. But it very well could in this case. Daniel's Team did what professional fantasy footballers do when they land the No. 1 overall pick. They put together a juggernaut. With Saquon Barkley and Melvin Gordon III expected to combine for the highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league, Daniel's Team are projected to finish in first place in Yahoo Public 50722 with a mark of 12-2 (2,008 points).

  • Melvin Gordon III

Biggest Steal

What an early bargain for Daniel's Team, who selected Gordon III in the 4th round, about two rounds later than his ADP of 19. After a season in which he ran for 885 yards and 10 TDs and had 50 catches for 490 yards and 4 TDs in 12 games, totaling 251 fantasy points, Gordon III is projected to score 266 fantasy points with the Chargers. That makes him a valuable No. 2 RB for this squad.

  • Houston

Stretch Pick

Draft Notes

  • With only one kicker off the board, Daniel's Team predicted a run developing and got in early, taking Harrison Butker in the 9th round. Seven more kickers went in the ensuing round.

  • Week 10 could bring a tough challenge for Daniel's Team, as they have four players on a bye (Julian Edelman, James White, Dede Westbrook, and Houston). Your Week 10 opponent, Eliyar's Expert Team, won't be quite as hamstrung with only two players (Carson Wentz and Zach Ertz) on the sideline.

  • Daniel's Team face one of the least challenging schedules in Yahoo Public 50722 this season based on projected records with a strength of schedule ranked as the 2nd easiest.

  • Despite offensive openings at QB and TE in the 5th round, Daniel's Team selected WR Julian Edelman at No. 41, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position rather than a more important position.

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..."
