Despite a Few Value Picks, Penetrators Have a Great Team if the Goal is to Finish Dead Last

Draft Summary

If Penetrators handles adversity during the season the way they did in this draft, it's going to be a challenging year. Picking No. 16 overall, they were clearly unprepared. Penetrators are predicted to finish 13th in WHAT?! Radio Football - IX with a record of 3-11 (1,567 points).

  • Mecole Hardman

Biggest Steal

What a tremendous late-round value for Penetrators, who got Hardman at No. 177, about four rounds later than his ADP of 125. Hardman is projected to score 66 fantasy points with the Chiefs, making him the No. 5 WR for this squad.

  • Austin Ekeler

Going out on a Limb

There are millions of self-declared fantasy experts nowadays, so there's no telling what led you to draft Ekeler at No. 81, about 22 spots earlier than his ADP of 103. Projected to score 124 fantasy points this season with the Chargers, he'll attempt to match last year when he rushed for 554 yards and 3 TDs and caught 39 balls for 404 yards and 3 TDs over 14 games, earning 130 fantasy points. According to projections, Ekeler will slot in as the No. 3 RB for Penetrators to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • Penetrators are particularly thin at tight end, selecting fewer than any team in the league with just one, lagging the league average of 1.9.

  • If you're not first, you're last. You beat your opponents to the punch at tight end, drafting Travis Kelce (No. 16 overall) as the first TE off the board.

  • Penetrators face a tough challenge in Week 12 when they have five players on a bye (Travis Kelce, Austin Ekeler, Carlos Hyde, Mecole Hardman, and Justin Jackson). Your Week 12 opponent, PHFILTHYS, won't be nearly as encumbered with only one player (Alexander Mattison) getting the week off.

  • With a first-half strength of schedule that rates as the most difficult based on projections, Penetrators have a tough path early on in WHAT?! Radio Football - IX. Even so, for the season as a whole, Penetrators should expect a pretty fair path that ranks as the 9th hardest.

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..."
