As Ricky Bobby's dad once told him, "If you ain't first you're last." Touchdown There really took that message to heart, as they're projected to finish near the bottom of Byrd Fan Club League with a record of 4-9-0 (1,660 points). While they'll try to blame their poor season on an unfavorable draft slot, the other GMs will know Touchdown There simply just dropped the ball. They must think having a lot of RBs guarantees victory. However, quantity does not necessarily equal production. They have four RBs that projected to average 138 points this season, which is lower than the league average of 149. They also ended up landing one of the highest-scoring groups of WRs in the league, as they added A.J. Green, Brandin Cooks and John Brown to their rotation.
While Week 10 has the most players on bye for Touchdown There (five), Week 6 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-difficult-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first month and final month of the season project to be close to league-average in terms of difficulty for Touchdown There.
A Dominating Duo
WR and QB are both projected to be really solid units for Touchdown There.
The top half of the Touchdown There roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 2). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).
Defense Wins Championships?
Hoping to play the favorable matchups week-to-week, Touchdown There chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
You Snooze, You Lose
While the rest of the league slept on Zay Jones, Touchdown There pounced on him at pick No. 179.
Touchdown There Gets Groovy With Green
- A.J. Green, WR
- Round 1, Pick 11
A.J. averaged 11.0 targets, 7.3 receptions, and 107.1 yards in nine games prior to getting injured in Week 11 last year. The 29-year-old Bengals star is healthy and primed for a big campaign this season.
Is his Production Open-Sourced?
- Brandin Cooks, WR
- Round 2, Pick 14
Brandin Cooks is sure to be running free through opposing defenses. He's projected to put up 1,231 receiving yards this year, eighth-most in the NFL.
Touchdown There Hops Aboard the Travis Train
- Travis Kelce, TE
- Round 3, Pick 35
Though KC's offense attempted the eighth-fewest passes in the league, only two tight ends (Rudolph and Olsen) saw more targets than Kelce last season.
How Rebellious of You
- Marshawn Lynch, RB
- Round 4, Pick 38
Touchdown There said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (Marshawn Lynch).
Russell Wilson Likes His Eggs Scrambled
- Russell Wilson, QB
- Round 6, Pick 62
And a little runny, eh? Wilson is projected to deliver 436 rushing yards, and ranks third among QBs in that category.
With four below-average positions on Touchdown There, DEF and RB are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Carolina Defense
- Rank 156, ADP 107
- Los Angeles Defense
- Rank 172, ADP 127
- Samaje Perine
- Rank 164, ADP 117
- Alvin Kamara
- Rank 191, ADP 123

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.
