Projected to Finish 10th, Kleet Lumber Couldn't Do This Poorly Again if They Tried

Draft Summary

Meat Loaf once told USA Today that he had to file an extension because he chose to put together his fantasy-player draft list rather than work on his income-tax filing. The manager of Kleet Lumber should aim for that level of dedication next time, as they're projected to finish 10th in Byrd Fan Club League with a record of 2-11-0 (1,645 points). They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Terrelle Pryor Sr. (third round), Davante Adams (fourth round), and Stefon Diggs (fifth round). They also ended up landing one of the highest-scoring RB pairs in the league, as they'll depend on LeSean McCoy and Jordan Howard to carry the load.

You're close to greatness. And if being close isn't good enough for you, you might be worthy of the Toyota Hall of Fame. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Kleet Lumber should use Week 9 to finally build that mini trainyard. Really just about anything other than checking fantasy football will do. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have an easier-than-average schedule. Kleet Lumber has the opportunity to close with a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • Earning Your Paycheck

    Kleet Lumber will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Willie Snead), fourth- (Stefon Diggs), and fifth-ranked (Adam Thielen) wideouts.

  • WR or Bust

    Unfortunately, WR is the only strong position on Kleet Lumber. Fortunately, there's always next year.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With seven "low-risk" players among their 15 picks, Kleet Lumber is looking for dependable help.

  • A Dominating Pair

    Kleet Lumber has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (LeSean McCoy and Jordan Howard) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Put All Your Eggs in One Basket

    And then watch that basket. Ignoring roster depth, Kleet Lumber chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Jamaal Williams, Kleet Lumber pounced on him at pick No. 160.

Player Analysis

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 9
    Feed Thy Beast

    LeSean McCoy will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish ninth in the league with 278 touches.

    • Jordan Howard, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 16
    Old Fashioned

    Kleet Lumber stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking LeSean McCoy and Jordan Howard before targeting other positions.

    • Stefon Diggs, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 57
    A Bit of a Reach

    Kleet Lumber went out on a limb with their fifth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Stefon Diggs has an ADP of 99.7, but he was grabbed at pick No. 57. Patience is a virtue, Kleet Lumber.

    • Doug Martin, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 64
    Martin Reinforces Ground Attack for Kleet Lumber

    The Buccaneers' running back is projected to significantly exceed his production (77 points) from last year.

    • Kirk Cousins, QB
    • Round 7, Pick 81
    Earning His Keep

    According to projections, Kirk Cousins should finish ranked 10th in the league in passing TDs (28.7) and third in passing yards (4,671).

Best Available

With five subpar positions on Kleet Lumber, TE and K are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

    • Austin Hooper
    • Rank 128, ADP 136
    • C.J. Fiedorowicz
    • Rank 136, ADP 135

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..."
