It doesn't matter how you get to the playoffs, it only matters that you get there. chugabeer is a squad built to get there and is projected to finish seventh in Teke Football League XVII-A League with a record of 6-7-0 (1,513 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Julio Jones (first round), Keenan Allen (second round), and Jeremy Maclin (fourth round). These guys could be the key to the season for chugabeer, as they are one of the best groups of WRs in the league.
chugabeer should use Week 13 to finally read War and Peace. Anything that isn't following their fantasy football team. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have an easier-than-average slate. chugabeer has the opportunity to start quickly, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average. However, their closing stretch of four games is expected to be tougher than average.
Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for chugabeer, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (Derrick Henry) and fourth-ranked (Devontae Booker) RBs.
May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor
chugabeer might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Marcus Mariota) and second-drafted QB (Tyrod Taylor) have similar seasonal point projections.
Tennessee Titans Fan?
chugabeer reached twice to draft a Tennessee Titans player.
Team of Champions?
chugabeer is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Julio Jones, Thomas Rawls, and Gary Barnidge.
Put All Your Eggs in One Basket
And then watch that basket. Ignoring roster depth, chugabeer chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
Not Afraid to Scramble
With 498 projected rushing yards (ranked second among QBs), Tyrod Taylor has multiple ways to bring in points.
Just Heave it to Julio
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 1, Pick 4
The lone NFL player to see 200 targets last season, only DeAndre Hopkins appeared on more first-place rosters than Jones in 2015.
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 2, Pick 25
Keenan Allen is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 99 projected catches rank fifth in the league.
Wait For It
- Thomas Rawls, RB
- Round 3, Pick 32
chugabeer held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to snag their "lead back" (Thomas Rawls).
Better Lucky Than Good?
- Ryan Mathews, RB
- Round 5, Pick 60
The rest of Teke Football League XVII-A League overlooked a gem, and chugabeer made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Ryan Mathews.
A Bit of a Reach
- Derrick Henry, RB
- Round 6, Pick 81
chugabeer went out on a limb with their sixth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Derrick Henry has an ADP of 115.9, but he was grabbed at pick No. 81. Patience is a virtue, chugabeer.
chugabeer is projected to have a pair of subpar positions (RB and QB), but RB is clearly their weakest unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.
- Karlos Williams
- Rank 168, ADP 116
- Jordan Howard
- Rank 178, ADP 128
- Darren McFadden
- Rank 185, ADP 117
- Kenneth Dixon
- Rank 189, ADP 127

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.
