With Too Many Reaches Early, Bob Ross Will Only Scare Opponents if They Wear a Mask

Draft Summary

Bob Ross isn't the best team in the league, but they aren't the worst, and there is something to be said for that. After selecting fifth overall, they are projected to finish in seventh in Welcome to Fumbledome League at 6-7-0 (1,952 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Marcus Mariota (53rd overall), RB DeMarco Murray (20th), WR Antonio Brown (5th), and TE Greg Olsen (44th) within the first five rounds. They also ultimately ended up with a quality set of WRs, as they have Brown, Kelvin Benjamin, Rishard Matthews, and Pierre Garcon for their rotation.

You're close to greatness. And if being close isn't good enough for you, you might be worthy of the Toyota Hall of Fame. Nominate yourself now.


Ever wonder what exactly was inside the briefcase in Pulp Fiction? Bob Ross should use Week 8 to solve the mystery, since they certainly won't be winning. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Despite having the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Bob Ross actually has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Detroit Lions Fan?

    Bob Ross is a believer in the hopes of the Detroit Lions this season, grabbing a couple of players on that team sooner than their ADPs might suggest.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With nine "low-risk" players among their 15 picks, Bob Ross is looking for dependable help.

  • Drink Plenty of Milk

    With an average of 8 years of NFL experience, Bob Ross has the greatest chance of losing a player to osteoporosis.

  • A Dominating Pair

    Bob Ross has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Antonio Brown and DeMarco Murray) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Mr. Mendoza

    Allen Hurns is owned in only 3% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Bob Ross has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Get a Grip

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    Bob Ross is Down With DeMarco

    Finishing the year with 1,664 total yards and 12 touchdowns, only David Johnson and Le'Veon Bell appeared on more postseason fantasy rosters than Murray.

    • K. Benjamin, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 29
    Apparently ADP is Overrated

    • Greg Olsen, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 44
    Panther Performance

    Olsen saw an increase in targets for the sixth consecutive year in 2016. It was his third straight 1,000-yard campaign and ninth year in a row suiting up for all 16 games.

    • Marcus Mariota, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 53
    Marcus Mariota Likes His Eggs Scrambled

    And a little runny, eh? Mariota is projected to deliver 405 rushing yards, and ranks fourth among QBs in that category.

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..."
