Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, Sir Wins a lot Isn't Exactly What You'd Call "Strong"

Draft Summary

Despite selecting with the fourth overall pick, Sir Wins a lot couldn't capitalize on the opportunity and drafted a roster that will have trouble winning. Opponents will enjoy beating this team with regularity, which is projected to finish eighth in Nitty Gritty Dirt League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,523 points). They won't have any issues with depth at WR, using their first three picks to load up, drafting Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall, and Brandin Cooks. A lot will be expected of this group, as they are the best group of WRs in the league.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.


Week 10 might require some artful managing from Sir Wins a lot, as their top two projected scorers (Andrew Luck and Tyrod Taylor) will have a bye week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the most difficult slates. In addition to having the second-most demanding overall schedule, Sir Wins a lot also has the most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

    Sir Wins a lot grabbed a couple of QBs (Andrew Luck and Tyrod Taylor) that'll both be on bye in Week 10, and will be looking for a signal-caller. You can call Brett, but texting him isn't exactly recommended.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Sir Wins a lot chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • A Dominating Pair

    Sir Wins a lot has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Derrick Henry, Sir Wins a lot pounced on him at pick No. 124.

  • Tyrod Taylor Likes His Eggs Scrambled

    And a little runny, eh? Taylor is projected to deliver 498 rushing yards, and ranks second among QBs in that category.

    • Matt Jones, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 57
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Sir Wins a lot didn't grab their first RB (Matt Jones) until the sixth round.

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..."
