Despite a Powerful Set of RBs, William Cobretti Will Need to Improve to Reach Playoffs

Draft Summary

Maybe if William Cobretti purchases a lift kit and some giant tires for this roster it won't seem so average. The playoffs are not out of reach for this team, but it will require some effort. They are projected to finish eighth in Jeff Schuler Memorial FFL with a record of 6-7-0 (1,864 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Dez Bryant (second round), DeAndre Hopkins (third round), and Keenan Allen (fourth round). They put together one of the best groups of RBs in the league, as they have LeSean McCoy, Paul Perkins, Shane Vereen, and Theo Riddick on their team.

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.


William Cobretti should use Week 6 to finally build that mini trainyard. Really just about anything other than checking fantasy football will do. Their top three projected scorers (Russell Wilson, Dez Bryant and LeSean McCoy) will be off with byes. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the most challenging slates. Corresponding with the second-most taxing overall schedule, William Cobretti also has the second-hardest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Like Choosing your Favorite Kardashian

    William Cobretti will have some tricky calls to make each week at RB, with a slim projected points difference between their third- (Shane Vereen), fourth- (Theo Riddick), and fifth-ranked (James White) RBs.

  • WR or Bust

    Unfortunately, WR is the only strong position on William Cobretti. Fortunately, there's always next year.

  • Sky's the Limit

    With five players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, William Cobretti hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Single Serving

    By choosing only a single TE (Zach Ertz) and DEF (Cincinnati), William Cobretti elected to add depth elsewhere on the roster.

  • William Cobretti Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Shane Vereen at pick 138 was just a bit of a stretch. Vereen is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

  • An Efficient Arm

    Along with a respectable 20-to-5 TD-to-INT ratio, Bradford led all quarterbacks with a 71.6 completion percentage last year.

Player Analysis

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    Feed Thy Beast

    LeSean McCoy will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish ninth in the league with 278 touches.

    • Dez Bryant, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Clickbait Advertising

    Defenses Hate Him, Quarterbacks Love Him! Dez Bryant is expected to catch almost everything this year, as his 94 projected receptions rank fifth in the league.

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 42
    Rethinking That One

    Keenan Allen may not justify his 42nd overall draft pick if projections hold true. Currently, he is estimated to fall outside the NFL's top-20 in both yards (29th with 1,015) and TDs (25th with 7.9).

    • L. Fitzgerald, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 55
    Climbing The Ladder

    Currently in ninth place with 14,389 career receiving yards, Fitzgerald is just 904 yards away from moving all the way up to third place all-time. Only five WRs (Evans, Nelson, Brown, Cooper, Hilton) appeared on more championship rosters last season.

    • Danny Woodhead, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 66
    Let Me Check it Again

    Why can't I find Danny Woodhead on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late-round flier."

Best Available

With four subpar positions on William Cobretti, QB and DEF are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.

    • Tyrod Taylor
    • Rank 129, ADP 127
    • Jay Cutler
    • Rank 140, ADP 130
    • Green Bay Defense
    • Rank 180, ADP 141

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..."
