Team no sleep wasn't able to overcome a poor draft position (sixth overall), and that will have to serve as the excuse as to why they are projected to land in eighth place in Tilt B Shift League. With the roster as is, they are expected to finish 5-9-0 (2,158 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Russell Wilson (6th overall), RB Mark Ingram (35th), WR Kelvin Benjamin (15th), and TE Greg Olsen (26th) within the first five rounds. They also built one of the bottom groups of RBs in the league, as they added Ingram, Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams, and C.J. Prosise.
Team no sleep should use Week 7 to consider life's great mysteries, like why Greenland is ice and Iceland is green. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. In addition to having the third-most grueling overall schedule, Team no sleep also has the most difficult last four games of the season.
A Gamble Riverboat Ron Would Make
The fantasy hopes of Team no sleep rest heavily on the fortunes of Cam's crew, as they loaded up with five Panthers on their roster.
Team no sleep knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.
A Dominating Pair
Team no sleep has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Mark Ingram and DeAngelo Williams) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
Team no sleep grabbed a sleeper in C.J. Prosise with pick No. 155.
Returning to Greatness
If special teams contributions count in Tilt B Shift League, Team no sleep may have found a gem in Tyler Lockett. Including his 753 projected return yards, he ranks fifth in the league with 1,604 all-purpose yards.
A Stretch of the Imagination
Grabbing Devin Lucien at pick 146 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Lucien is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
- Russell Wilson, QB
- Round 1, Pick 6
Russell Wilson can deliver fantasy glory to Team no sleep with his arm and his legs. Wilson has 430 projected rushing yards, and ranks third among QBs in that category.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- K. Benjamin, WR
- Round 2, Pick 15
Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Kelvin Benjamin had less value than any other pick of the round.
All Over the Field
- Greg Olsen, TE
- Round 3, Pick 26
Greg Olsen is projected to rank among the top-5 for TEs in both receiving TDs (fourth with 6.9) and receiving yards (third with 944).
Haters Gonna Hate
- Mark Ingram, RB
- Round 4, Pick 35
The rest of Tilt B Shift League overlooked a gem, and Team no sleep made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Mark Ingram.
Was Defense a Smart Decision at Pick No. 55?
- Denver, DEF
- Round 6, Pick 55
Team no sleep sure hopes so. Denver's D is projected to earn 155 points this year, after putting up 179 last year.
While Team no sleep is projected to have four subpar positions, WR is clearly their weakest unit and should be upgraded first.
- Donte Moncrief
- Rank 42, ADP 63
- Golden Tate
- Rank 48, ADP 49
- Jordan Matthews
- Rank 55, ADP 70
- John Brown
- Rank 62, ADP 84

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.
