Led by a Quality Backfield, GIRISH's Team Will be a Tough Team

Draft Summary

After receiving an advantageous draft slot (No. 5 overall), GIRISH's Team had an impressive performance. The team is especially talented at the running back position, as Ezekiel Elliott and Derrick Henry are slated to combine for the 3rd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. GIRISH's Team are projected to finish 3rd in Yahoo Public 50722 with a mark of 8-6 (1,881 points).

  • Austin Ekeler

Biggest Steal

What a nice late-round bargain for GIRISH's Team, who selected Ekeler with the 5th pick of the 13th round, about two rounds later than his ADP of 108. After a season in which he ran for 554 yards and 3 TDs and recorded 39 catches for 404 yards and 3 TDs in 14 games, totaling 149 fantasy points, Ekeler is projected to score 140 fantasy points with the Chargers. That makes him a valuable No. 4 RB for this squad.

  • Kyler Murray

Reach Pick

Do you know something everybody else doesn't? We're not sure why else you would select Murray at No. 65, about 23 spots earlier than his ADP of 88. Murray is projected to score 274 fantasy points this season with the Cardinals. But do you really need excess QBs? You can only start one a week. Murray will slot in as the No. 2 QB for GIRISH's Team, based on projections.

Draft Notes

  • The early bird gets the worm. You got the jump on your opponents at tight end, drafting Travis Kelce (No. 16 overall) as the first TE off the board.

  • GIRISH's Team face a tough task in Week 12 when they have five players on a bye (Kyler Murray, Travis Kelce, Stefon Diggs, Austin Ekeler, and Los Angeles). Your Week 12 opponent, Glen's Fabulous Team, won't be quite as short-handed with only two players (Dan Bailey and Minnesota) on a bye.

  • With a strength of schedule ranked as the easiest based on projections, GIRISH's Team have an easy road in Yahoo Public 50722 this season. But don't be fooled, the work has just begun. Even the softest schedules can present plenty of roadblocks for those owners who aren't diligent.

  • With the youngest group in the league at an average of 3.9 years of NFL experience, GIRISH's Team are counting on youthful exuberance. Case in point: they selected two rookies (Josh Jacobs and Kyler Murray), the highest total in the league. In total, there were five rookies selected over the course of the Yahoo Public 50722 draft.

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..."
