In Spite of Some Steals, Dr!p Can Only Improve From Here

Draft Summary

Drafting in the second half of the first round (No. 11 overall), Dr!p can use their subpar draft position as an excuse for putting together a mediocre team. This team concerns no one with a projected record of 3-11 (1,490 points). Dr!p are predicted to finish 15th in WHAT?! Radio Football - IX.

  • Adrian Peterson

Biggest Steal

What a late-round bargain for Dr!p, who selected Peterson with the 6th pick in the 12th round, about four rounds later than his ADP of 122. Coming off a season in which he rushed for 1,042 yards and 7 TDs and recorded 20 catches for 208 yards and 1 TD, totaling 169 fantasy points, Peterson is projected to score 91 fantasy points with the Redskins. That makes him the No. 5 RB for this squad.

  • Rashaad Penny

Most Improved

While it looks to be a tough season for Dr!p, you never really got out of line and overreached. So we’ll feature another positive from the draft in Penny, who seems poised to show the most improvement over last year of all the offensive players selected. After a rookie season in which he accumulated 419 yards and 2 TDs on 85 attempts over 13 games, totaling 61 fantasy points, Penny is projected to score 119 fantasy points with the Seahawks, a 94% jump, which makes him the No. 4 RB for this squad.

Draft Notes

  • Dr!p went particularly light at quarterback, taking the fewest of any team in the league with just one, trailing the league average of 1.9.

  • Patience is a virtue. You were the last owner in the league to draft a quarterback and tight end with Philip Rivers (No. 118 overall) and Jordan Reed (No. 150 overall).

  • Dr!p face a tough challenge in Week 10 when they have five players on a bye (James White, Courtland Sutton, Jordan Reed, Adrian Peterson, and Trey Quinn). Penetrators, your Week 10 opponent, will have three players (Case Keenum, Dede Westbrook, and Brandon McManus) on the sideline.

  • Dr!p have a difficult road in WHAT?! Radio Football - IX this season based on projected records with a strength of schedule that rates as the most difficult. But all is not lost. You can't control strength of schedule, but you can control how much work you put in. There are infinite methods to improve over the course of the season as long as you remain active.

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..."
