Coming into the draft with a solid draft position (No. 3 overall), expectations were high for Degenerates. Then they drafted, and those expectations vanished quickly, as this team is on pace for a mediocre 6th-place finish in Yahoo Public 50722. Degenerates are predicted to post a record of 6-8 (1,853 points).
- Phillip Lindsay
Degenerates scored a great late-round bargain with the pick of Lindsay at No. 98, about five rounds later than his ADP of 53. After a rookie season in which he ran for 1,037 yards and 9 TDs and snagged 35 passes for 241 yards and 1 TD, totaling 205 fantasy points, Lindsay is projected to score 216 fantasy points with the Broncos. That makes him a valuable No. 3 RB for this squad.
- Christian McCaffrey
The RB is expected to be the least likely to repeat what he did last year of all the offensive players selected by Degenerates. After a season in which he ran for 1,098 yards and 7 TDs and recorded 107 catches for 867 yards and 6 TDs, totaling 332 fantasy points, McCaffrey is projected to score 274 fantasy points with the Panthers, a 17% decrease. That still makes him the No. 1 RB for this squad.
Degenerates went especially deep at wide receiver, selecting the most of any team in the league with six, outpacing the league average of just 4.3. On the other end of the spectrum, the team seems a bit sparse at tight end, taking the fewest of any team in the league with just one. The league average is 1.9.
Degenerates appear to be all in on the Broncos this season, as the selections of Phillip Lindsay, Emmanuel Sanders, and Denver give them three players from Denver, more than any other team in your league. League-wide, the Rams were the most popular team, as eight of them were selected in the draft.
Degenerates face a tough task in Week 10 when they have five players on a bye (Deshaun Watson, Phillip Lindsay, Jordan Howard, Emmanuel Sanders, and Denver). Perhaps leveling the playing field, your Week 10 opponent -- Glen's Fabulous Team -- will also be facing their worst bye week with four players getting the week off.
According to projected records, Degenerates have one of the least challenging schedules early in the season in Yahoo Public 50722 with a first-half strength of schedule ranked as the 3rd easiest. Despite that, for the season as a whole, Degenerates face a pretty fair schedule that ranks as the 5th toughest.

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.
