Andy Dufresne once said that "Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies." Sadly, hope might be the only thing that Parker the great can cling to as their playoff aspirations are dwindling quickly. They were not able to overcome being the last team to pick in Family Fantasy FB League and are forecasted to finish in fourth place with a record of 3-11-0 (1,791 points). They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Cam Newton (13th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (5th) and Le'Veon Bell (12th), and WRs Dez Bryant (4th) and Brandon Marshall (20th). They ended up with the worst group of RBs in the league, as they added Peterson, Eddie Lacy, C.J. Anderson, and Bell.
While Week 11 has the most players on bye for Parker the great (four), Week 7 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the entire season, they have the most daunting slate.
Doing It By Committee
Here's hoping that there are enough balls to go around for the Jacksonville Jaguars, as Parker the great scooped up a couple of their WRs in the middle of the draft (Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns).
Here's hoping that there are enough balls to go around for the New York Jets, as Parker the great scooped up a couple of their WRs in the middle of the draft (Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker).
Up, Up, and Away
With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Parker the great hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.
Tread Left on the Tires
With an average of 6.9 years of NFL experience, Parker the great is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.
Going Out with a Whimper
Parker the great didn't end the night the way they might have liked, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
Team of Champions
Parker the great is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy rosters, including Adrian Peterson, Cam Newton, and Brandon Marshall.
Maybe Bryant Will Surprise
- Dez Bryant, WR
- Round 1, Pick 4
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Dez Bryant was the weakest value pick of the round.
Feed Thy Beast
- A. Peterson, RB
- Round 2, Pick 5
Adrian Peterson will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish second in the league with 323 touches.
Returning to Excellence
- Le'Veon Bell, RB
- Round 3, Pick 12
He played in only six games, but Bell joined Adrian Peterson as the only NFL running backs to rush for 90+ yards per game last season.
Better Lucky Than Good?
- Cam Newton, QB
- Round 4, Pick 13
The rest of Family Fantasy FB League overlooked a gem, and Parker the great made the highest value pick of the round by taking Cam Newton.
177 More Reasons to Appreciate Brandon Marshall
- B. Marshall, WR
- Round 5, Pick 20
Marshall ranks eighth in the Family Fantasy FB League among WRs with 177 projected fantasy points.
There are four positions that Parker the great could look to improve, including RB and DEF, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Thomas Rawls
- Rank 33, ADP 38
- Carlos Hyde
- Rank 35, ADP 36
- Carolina Defense
- Rank 138, ADP 72
- Los Angeles Defense
- Rank 170, ADP 88

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.
