Despite getting the No. 4 overall pick, Chompers drafted a roster that will struggle to pick up wins. Opponents are likely to enjoy beating them on a weekly basis, as this team is projected to finish 10th in Yahoo Public 50722. Chompers are predicted to have a record of 4-10 (1,805 points).
- Baker Mayfield
You Lead, They Follow
With only three quarterbacks off the board, Chompers saw a run coming and jumped in early, taking Mayfield at No. 57. In the following round, five more quarterbacks were selected. Coming off a rookie season in which he threw for 3,725 yards and 27 TDs with 14 interceptions in 14 games, totaling 254 fantasy points, Mayfield is projected to score 337 fantasy points.
- Miles Sanders
You must know something nobody else does. There's no other explanation for selecting Sanders at No. 97, about 12 slots earlier than his ADP of 109. Sanders is projected to score 99 fantasy points this season with the Eagles. Sanders will slot in as the No. 5 RB for Chompers, based on projected points.
Chompers seem especially thin at wide receiver, taking fewer than any team in the league with just three, lagging the league average of 4.3.
Chompers are in for a rude awakening in Week 12 when they have three players on a bye (Dalvin Cook, David Johnson, and Keenan Allen). Eliyar's Expert Team, your Week 12 opponent, won't be quite as hamstrung with only one player (Larry Fitzgerald) on a bye week.
With a strength of schedule rated as the 2nd-most difficult according to projections, Chompers have one of the most daunting schedules in Yahoo Public 50722 this season. That doesn't mean you have to lose, though. Strength of schedule doesn't say anything about the work you put in. There are countless means to improve throughout the season for those who stay involved.
Despite unfilled slots at QB and TE in the 5th round, Chompers drafted RB Mark Ingram II with the 44th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position rather than a position of greater importance.

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..."
