Headlined by an Impressive Set of RBs, BOOM! Have an Absolutely Scary Roster

Draft Summary

After receiving an advantageous draft slot (No. 5 overall), BOOM! had a wonderful showing. The team is particularly talented at running back, as Dalvin Cook and Joe Mixon are expected to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. BOOM! are predicted to finish 1st in Hiawatha Premier League with a mark of 11-2 (1,704 points).

  • Devin Singletary

Best Pick

BOOM! notched a tremendous mid-round bargain when they chose Singletary in the 7th round, about two rounds later than his ADP of 59. Coming off a rookie season in which he ran for 775 yards and 2 TDs and had 29 catches for 194 yards and 2 TDs in 12 games, totaling 119 fantasy points, Singletary is projected to score 190 fantasy points with the Bills. That makes him a valuable No. 3 RB for this squad.

  • Tarik Cohen

Going out on a Limb

You might have gotten a little too excited when deciding to choose Cohen with the 8th pick in the 8th round, about 27 slots earlier than his ADP of 119. Granted, you might be onto something? Projected to score 121 fantasy points this season with the Bears, he appears poised to outperform last year when he rushed for 213 yards and recorded 79 receptions for 456 yards and 3 TDs, totaling 85 fantasy points. Based on projections, Cohen will slot in as the No. 4 RB for BOOM! to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • With only three quarterbacks off the board, BOOM! predicted a run on the horizon and got in early, taking Dak Prescott with the 5th pick of the 5th round. In the round that followed, three more quarterbacks came off the board.

  • Week 11 could be a tough challenge for BOOM!, as they have four players on a bye (Devin Singletary, San Francisco, Anthony Miller, and Tarik Cohen). Second half scrubs, your Week 11 opponent, won't be nearly as limited with only one player (George Kittle) getting the week off.

  • BOOM! have an easy path in Hiawatha Premier League this season according to projections with a strength of schedule rated as the easiest. That doesn't mean you can rest easy, though. If you don't give your team the attention it requires, even light schedules can turn challenging at any time.

  • BOOM! chose RB Devin Singletary with the 5th pick of the 7th round as the first flex player on the squad, taking advantage of the WR/RB position only after selecting all of the individual offensive positions.

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..."
