Loaded With Saints, Loafer's Gonna Loaf Isn't Going to Scare Anyone

Draft Summary

While Loafer's Gonna Loaf is no world-beater, this is a team that could potentially reach the playoffs if some things go their way. Picking 11th overall, Loafer's Gonna Loaf is projected to land in ninth place in Teke Football League XVII-A League with a record of 5-8-0 (1,498 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Drew Brees (46th overall), RB Mark Ingram (18th), WR Randall Cobb (39th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (11th) within the first five rounds. They ended up with one of the lowest-scoring duos of WRs in the league, as they added Cobb and Jordan Matthews.

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


Week 5 might require some artful managing from Loafer's Gonna Loaf, as their top two projected scorers (Drew Brees and Mark Ingram) will have a bye week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with having the seventh-most grueling overall schedule, Loafer's Gonna Loaf has the league's easiest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Who Dat Nation

    The fantasy hopes of Loafer's Gonna Loaf rest heavily on the fortunes of New Orleans, as they loaded up with four Saints on their roster.

  • On Autopilot

    Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for Loafer's Gonna Loaf, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (Ameer Abdullah) and fourth-ranked (Javorius Allen) RBs.

  • Assessing the Assets

    TE is the strongest position for Loafer's Gonna Loaf, though QB and K are also better than the league's average.

  • Golden Handcuff

    Loafer's Gonna Loaf hedged their bets by scooping up Tim Hightower in the 12th round to back up Mark Ingram, his Saints teammate (a second-round selection).

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, Loafer's Gonna Loaf chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).

  • A Dominating Pair

    Loafer's Gonna Loaf has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Rob Gronkowski and Mark Ingram) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

Player Analysis

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 1, Pick 11
    A Repeat for Rob

    For the second straight year, Gronkowski appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than any other TE.

    • Mark Ingram, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Mark Ingram Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. Loafer's Gonna Loaf should be in decent shape if Ingram gets his 282 projected touches this year.

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 46
    Like Elway in His Prime

    Drew Brees is projected to lead the NFL in both passing yards (4,805) and passing TDs (31.5).

    • Frank Gore, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 74
    Was the 74th Pick the Right Time for Frank Gore?

    Loafer's Gonna Loaf apparently believes so. The Colts' running back is projected to earn 141 points this year, after putting up 159 last year.

    • T. Benjamin, WR
    • Round 7, Pick 95
    Apparently ADP is Overrated

    With their seventh-round pick, Loafer's Gonna Loaf pulled the trigger. They took Travis Benjamin at pick number 95 despite an ADP of just 121.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Best Available

While Loafer's Gonna Loaf is projected to have three below-average positions, RB is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.

    • 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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
