Despite a Set of Beast RBs, 2 Gurleys 1 Cup Needs Work to Reach Playoffs

Draft Summary

Mediocrity isn't for everyone 2 Gurleys 1 Cup, so feel proud. Ok, maybe it is. But hey, you showed up, and that's the important thing. After this average draft performance, 2 Gurleys 1 Cup is projected to go 6-8-0 (2,278 points) and finish sixth in Tilt B Shift League. They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Andy Dalton (38th overall), RBs Todd Gurley (3rd) and Le'Veon Bell (18th), and WRs Amari Cooper (23rd) and Mike Evans (43rd). They also have the highest-scoring group of RBs in the league, as they have Gurley, Bell, Matt Forte, and Duke Johnson Jr. for their rotation.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


2 Gurleys 1 Cup should do pretty much anything other than watch football during Week 8. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have the hardest slate. Corresponding with the most demanding overall schedule, 2 Gurleys 1 Cup also has the toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • A Pair of Strengths

    2 Gurleys 1 Cup has two positional units projected to be better than the league average, RB and WR.

  • Show Some ID

    2 Gurleys 1 Cup isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 5.1 years of NFL experience.

  • Digging Deep

    Joe Flacco is owned in only 3% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward 2 Gurleys 1 Cup for their faith! Or not.

Player Analysis

    • Todd Gurley, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    No RB by Committee Here

    Look up "workhorse back" in the dictionary and there is a picture of Todd Gurley. 2 Gurleys 1 Cup should be in good shape if he reaches his league-leading 346 projected touches this year.

    • Le'Veon Bell, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Old Fashioned

    2 Gurleys 1 Cup stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Todd Gurley and Le'Veon Bell before targeting other positions.

    • Andy Dalton, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 38
    It's a Bold Strategy Cotton, Let's See if it Pays Off

    Andy Dalton has an ADP of only 111.8 across all Yahoo! leagues, and wasn't quite worth the 38th overall pick.

    • Mike Evans, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 43
    Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, 2 Gurleys 1 Cup got a steal in the fifth round, when they selected Mike Evans (43rd overall pick vs. ADP of 23).

    • Matt Forte, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 58
    Was Matt Forte the Best Choice at Pick No. 58?

    2 Gurleys 1 Cup apparently thinks so. The Jets' RB is projected to have 206 points this year, just a bit lower than his total from last season.

Best Available

While 2 Gurleys 1 Cup is projected to have four subpar positions, DEF is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.

    • Kansas City Defense
    • Rank 197, ADP 110
    • Pittsburgh Defense
    • Rank 219, ADP 134
    • Green Bay Defense
    • Rank 246, ADP 133

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..."
