Led by a Talented WR Corps, Do it for Harambe Has a Nasty Squad With Championship Aspirations

Draft Summary

Brilliant!. Absolutely brilliant! Do it for Harambe put on a free draft clinic for the rest of the league, turning the final pick of the first round into a projected first place finish in Tilt B Shift League. They're projected record of 13-1-0 (2,490) may be untouchable and Do it for Harambe should expect this to be a season long victory lap. They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Blake Bortles (50th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (10th) and Giovani Bernard (31st), and WRs Odell Beckham Jr. (11th) and Brandon Marshall (30th). They ended up with one of the highest-scoring groups of WRs in the league, as they have Beckham Jr., Marshall, Jarvis Landry, and Keenan Allen on their team.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.


Do it for Harambe should use Week 11 to finally read War and Peace. Anything that isn't following their fantasy football team. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a tougher-than-average slate. In addition to having the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Do it for Harambe also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Strength in Numbers

    In order, the three best positions for Do it for Harambe are WR, RB, and K.

  • Team of Champions

    Do it for Harambe is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including Adrian Peterson, Odell Beckham Jr., and Brandon Marshall.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Do it for Harambe chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • The Bargain Whisperer

    Do it for Harambe was hunting for steals throughout the draft, snapping up a trio of bargains in the first 10 rounds (Keenan Allen, Jarvis Landry, and Brandon Marshall).

  • Dual-Threat Dynamo

    Marcus Mariota can deliver fantasy glory to Do it for Harambe with his arm and his legs. Mariota has 378 projected rushing yards, and ranks fifth among QBs in that category.

  • Jumping on Jarvis:

    Do it for Harambe may see some WR1 potential in Landry, who was one of three players (along with Julio Jones and Antonio Brown) to see double-digit targets in each of the final four weeks of 2015.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    Feed Thy Beast

    Adrian Peterson will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish second in the league with 325 touches.

    • O. Beckham Jr., WR
    • Round 2, Pick 11
    Does Odell Beckham Jr. Enjoy Fajitas?

    Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Beckham Jr. is projected to rank eighth in the league with 1,533 all-purpose yards.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 30
    The Power of Persuasion

    Now would be a reasonable time for Do it for Harambe to encourage the Tilt B Shift League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Brandon Marshall and his 94 projected catches (ranked seventh in the NFL).

    • G. Bernard, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 31
    A Choice That Wasn't Exactly Data-Driven

    According to projections, Giovani Bernard will fall outside of the NFL top-20 in both rushing TDs (40th with 3.7) and yards (36th with 607). Seems like Do it for Harambe just went with their gut on this one.

    • Blake Bortles, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 50
    Thanks for Clearing That Up, Terry

    Terry Bradshaw once said, “I may be dumb, but I'm not stupid.” Do it for Harambe hopes that drafting Blake Bortles and his 28.1 projected passing TDs was a choice that Bradshaw wouldn't make.

Best Available

Although Do it for Harambe can pretty much hold tight with this roster as is, QB is one area they could potentially upgrade if they get the itch to make a move.

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..."
