Led by a Pair of Texans, REAPERS Aren't Exactly What You'd Call Strong

Draft Summary

REAPERS couldn't take advantage of the No. 6 overall pick, drafting a roster that may have trouble winning. Opponents will enjoy overwhelming them with regularity, as this team is projected to finish 14th in WHAT?! Radio Football - IX. Behind multiple Texans in the early rounds (DeAndre Hopkins and Deshaun Watson), REAPERS are predicted to have a record of 3-11 (1,531 points).

  • Ronald Jones II

Best Pick

REAPERS scored a great late-round bargain with the selection of Jones II in the 12th round, about four rounds later than his ADP of 128. Following a rookie season in which he accumulated 44 yards and 1 TD on 23 carries in 7 games, totaling 14 fantasy points, Jones II is projected to score 61 fantasy points with the Buccaneers. That makes him a valuable No. 3 RB for this squad.

  • LeSean McCoy

Stretch Pick

We're going to give you some credit and assume you stepped away right before selecting McCoy at No. 70, about two rounds earlier than his ADP of 117. Then again, maybe you're onto something? Projected to score 144 fantasy points this season with the Bills, he looks set to surpass last year when he ran for 514 yards and 3 TDs and caught 34 balls for 238 yards over 14 games, earning 93 fantasy points. McCoy will slot in as the No. 1 RB for REAPERS, according to projected points.

Draft Notes

  • Patience is a virtue. With the selection of RB Miles Sanders (No. 59 overall), you became the last owner in the league to draft a running back.

  • Week 10 could be a rude awakening for REAPERS, as they have six players on a bye, led by Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins, and New England. Slap The Chef, your Week 10 opponent, will have three players (Josh Gordon, Philadelphia, and Jordan Thomas) on a bye.

  • REAPERS have one of the best schedules in the late stages in WHAT?! Radio Football - IX according to projected records with a strength of schedule for the last four weeks that rates as the 4th easiest. Despite that, for the season as a whole, REAPERS have drawn a pretty fair schedule that ranks as the 5th toughest.

  • With the 2nd-oldest group in the league at an average of 6.7 years of NFL experience, REAPERS appear to have prioritized experience over youth. In spite of that, they still selected two rookies (Miles Sanders and N'Keal Harry), the 3rd-highest total of first-year players in the league. In total, there were 20 rookies selected over the course of the WHAT?! Radio Football - IX draft.

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..."
