Mediocrity isn't for everyone Chaiwalas, so feel proud. Ok, maybe it is. But hey, you showed up, and that's the important thing. After this average draft performance, Chaiwalas is projected to go 4-9-0 (1,844 points) and finish seventh in Brown Boy League. They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Drew Brees (21st overall), RB David Johnson (1st), WR Amari Cooper (20th), and TE Jimmy Graham (40th) within the first five rounds. They finished the draft with the weakest group of WRs in the league, as they have Cooper, Kelvin Benjamin, Cameron Meredith, and Brandon Marshall on their team.
Chaiwalas used both of their keeper positions, stockpiling pass-catchers. They held on to a couple of WRs with their keepers-- Amari Cooper (24.1 ADP) and Kelvin Benjamin (79.2 ADP). From an ADP perspective, their top-ranked keeper (Amari Cooper) is less valuable than a first-round draft choice. Overall, the two keepers on Chaiwalas are projected to be marginally less productive (by 8%) than the draft picks they replaced.
Chaiwalas should use Week 10 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like what was the greatest thing before sliced bread? No, seriously, think about it. It's better than thinking about fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a harder-than-average slate. In addition to having the third-most grueling overall schedule, Chaiwalas also has the most difficult last four games of the season.
A Dominating Duo
TE and DEF are both projected to be really solid units for Chaiwalas.
Earning Your Paycheck
Chaiwalas will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Cameron Meredith), fourth- (Brandon Marshall), and fifth-ranked (Kenny Stills) wideouts.
Close to the Vest
Chaiwalas was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.
Team of Champions
Chaiwalas is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, five of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy rosters, including David Johnson, Amari Cooper, and Drew Brees.
Kenny Stills is owned in only 3% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Chaiwalas has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.
Chaiwalas scored the best value pick of the final round, drafting Carson Wentz at pick number 141.
No Backfield Committee Here
- David Johnson, RB
- Round 1, Pick 1
Projected to touch the ball 344 times this year (most in the NFL), David Johnson could deliver for Chaiwalas each and every week.
- Amari Cooper, WR
- Round 2, Pick 20
Though he didn't burst into super-stardom like many predicted, Cooper still delivered last season: only three wide receivers (Evans, Nelson, Brown) were rostered more frequently by first-place fantasy squads in 2016.
A High-Volume Passer
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 3, Pick 21
Brees led the NFL in attempts, completions, and passing yardage last season. Among all QBs, only Brady and Rodgers appeared on more championship rosters than the future Hall-of-Famer in 2016.
Back To His Old Ways
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 4, Pick 40
A relative bargain at his ADP last year, no tight end appeared on more championship rosters than Jimmy Graham.
Milk Was a Bad Choice
- Danny Woodhead, RB
- Round 5, Pick 41
And so was drafting Danny Woodhead, the weakest value of the round.
With four below-average positions on Chaiwalas, WR and K are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- John Brown
- Rank 106, ADP 120
- Jordan Matthews
- Rank 111, ADP 124
- Adam Vinatieri
- Rank 189, ADP 96
- Stephen Hauschka
- Rank 193, ADP 107

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.
