While this draft by On The Warpath didn't exactly set the world on fire, it didn't destroy their playoff aspirations either. They are expected to be in the mix for a playoff spot with a projected 10th-place finish in Teke Football League XVII-A League at 4-9-0 (1,454 points). It seems On The Warpath might care more about having depth at RB than having those RBs actually produce. Their five RBs are projected to average 105 points this season, which is less than the league average of 127. They also have one of the best TE pairs in the league, as they have Jordan Reed and Antonio Gates.
On The Warpath can write off Week 9 as a scheduling injustice and use that time to consider other injustices: for example, why doesn't Chewbacca get a medal during the ceremony at the end of Star Wars? Wookie bias? They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. Corresponding with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, On The Warpath also has the toughest first four games of the season.
May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor
On The Warpath might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Blake Bortles) and second-drafted QB (Matthew Stafford) have similar seasonal point projections.
Detroit Lions Fan?
On The Warpath reached twice to draft a Detroit Lions player.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
On The Warpath will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 6, as their only K (Blair Walsh) and only DEF (Minnesota) will both be on bye that week.
Rob Kelley and Terrance West are a couple of late-round fliers with decent upside for On The Warpath.
On The Warpath Went All YOLO Here
Grabbing Rob Kelley at pick 188 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Kelley is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
184 Reasons for On The Warpath to Appreciate A.J. Green
- A.J. Green, WR
- Round 1, Pick 9
Green ranks sixth in the Teke Football League XVII-A League among WRs with 184 projected fantasy points.
Better Lucky Than Good?
- Jordan Reed, TE
- Round 3, Pick 37
The rest of Teke Football League XVII-A League overlooked a gem, and On The Warpath made the highest value pick of the round by taking Jordan Reed.
Yeah, But He Totally Retweeted Me Once!
- Jeremy Hill, RB
- Round 4, Pick 48
Although he was taken 48th overall in the fantasy draft, Jeremy Hill is not projected among the NFL's top-20 in rushing TDs (21st with 5.8) or rushing yards (23rd with 876).
Apparently ADP is Overrated
- M. Jones Jr., WR
- Round 5, Pick 65
With their fifth-round pick, On The Warpath pulled the trigger. They took Marvin Jones Jr. at pick number 65 despite an ADP of just 95.5 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Was the 76th Pick the Right Time for Blake Bortles?
- Blake Bortles, QB
- Round 6, Pick 76
On The Warpath apparently believes it is. The Jaguars' quarterback is projected to earn 327 points this year, after putting up 386 last season.
While On The Warpath is expected to be weak across three positions, RB is definitely their worst unit and an area of need.
- Karlos Williams
- Rank 168, ADP 116
- Jordan Howard
- Rank 178, ADP 128
- Darren McFadden

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.
