Loaded at Wide Receiver, Cobra Kai Will Be a Juggernaut

Draft Summary

Before the draft, no one would have expected this squad to end up with a projected finish of third. Cobra Kai turned the eighth overall pick into a season potentially filled with success. They're expected to finish 10-3-0 (2,171 points) in Sunday Sessions Dirty Dozen League. They wanted to make sure they had plenty of wideout options, picking Julio Jones (first round), A.J. Green (second round), Jarvis Landry (sixth round), and Emmanuel Sanders (seventh round) with four of their first seven selections. If these guys can do what they're expected to do, Cobra Kai will benefit. They are the most prolific group of WRs in the league.

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.

Keeper Summary

Cobra Kai used their only keeper spot to hold on to Julio Jones (6.1 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is as valuable as a draft pick in the bottom half of the first round.

Schedule

Cobra Kai should use Week 11 to consider life's great mysteries, like why abbreviation is such a long word. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the least challenging schedule. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, Cobra Kai also has the league's easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Strength in Numbers

    In order, the three best positions for Cobra Kai are QB, WR, and RB.

  • Losing Focus

    Cobra Kai must have had to leave their draft party early. After tallying the most projected points in the league over the draft's first half, they managed the fewest during the second half.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With six "low-risk" players among their 14 picks, Cobra Kai is looking for dependable help.

  • You Almost Got It Right

    The top half of the Cobra Kai roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1). The bottom of the roster, unfortunately, is rated as the league's weakest.

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, Cobra Kai chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).

  • Going Out with a Whimper

    Cobra Kai didn't end the night the way they might have liked, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 8
    Does Julio Jones Believe in UFOs?

    These all-purpose yardage figures are out of this world. Jones is projected to rank eighth in the league with 1,542 total yards.

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    Cobra Kai Gets Groovy With Green

    A.J. averaged 11.0 targets, 7.3 receptions, and 107.1 yards in nine games prior to getting injured in Week 11 last year. The 29-year-old Bengals star is healthy and primed for a big campaign this season.

    • Tom Brady, QB
    • Round 3, Pick 32
    He Has an Ability to Simplify Things

    As Mitch Hedberg once said, "Every book is a children's book if the kid can read." With 587 projected fantasy points, Tom Brady is a kid who'll turn opposing secondaries into childrens' books each week.

    • L. Fournette, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 41
    Wait For It

    Cobra Kai held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to snag their "lead back" (Leonard Fournette).

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 65
    Was the 65th Pick the Right Time for Jarvis Landry?

    Cobra Kai apparently believes it is. The Dolphins' wide receiver is projected to have 234 points this year, almost the same as his total from last year.

Best Available

With three below-average positions on Cobra Kai, DEF and TE are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

    • Green Bay Defense
    • Rank 191, ADP 142
    • Jacksonville Defense
    • Rank 193, ADP 144
    • Jack Doyle
    • Rank 101, ADP 118
    • Austin Hooper
    • Rank 148, ADP 137

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..."
