Slated for a 10th-Place Finish, Ron Mexico Threw the Draft on Purpose?

Draft Summary

What's important Ron Mexico is that you have fun, regardless of the final score. Like that quote from Vince Lombardi, "Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing." Oh wait no, that's not the right quote for this. Turns out there aren't many quotes about having fun and losing, so let's just get to the projections. Ron Mexico is expected to finish 10th in steely mcbeams sausages League with a record of 4-9-0 (1,888 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 Michael Thomas (second round), Terrelle Pryor Sr. (third round), and Keenan Allen (fourth round). They also ended up landing an above-average QB pair, as they added Kirk Cousins and Matthew Stafford to their squad.

Let this mediocre draft inspire you to always do better. To win your league. To get in the Toyota Hall of Fame and inspire a nation. Nominate yourself today.


While Week 9 has the most players on bye for Ron Mexico (four), Week 5 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a softer-than-average schedule. Along with the sixth-easiest overall schedule, the first four games and last four games of the season are fairly average for Ron Mexico.

Draft Notes

  • A Dominating Duo

    TE and QB are both projected to be really solid units for Ron Mexico.

  • Earning Your Paycheck

    Ron Mexico will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Adam Thielen), fourth- (Keenan Allen), and fifth-ranked (Marvin Jones Jr.) wideouts.

  • Close to the Vest

    Ron Mexico was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • Single Serving

    By choosing only a single TE (Kyle Rudolph) and DEF (New York), Ron Mexico elected to add depth elsewhere on the roster.

  • Throwing Caution to the Wind

    They grabbed Adam Thielen with the 102nd pick, even though his ADP is only 125.7 across all Yahoo! leagues.

  • Insider Trading?

    James White is owned in only 9% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Ron Mexico has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    McCoy is Hungry

    And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank ninth in the NFL with 278 touches.

    • Michael Thomas, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 19
    Just Heave it to Michael Thomas

    Thomas ranks 10th in the steely mcbeams sausages League among WRs with 272 projected fantasy points.

    • Joe Mixon, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 54
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Ron Mexico got a steal in snatching Joe Mixon in the fifth round (54th overall pick vs. ADP of 41.1).

    • Kirk Cousins, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 67
    Earning His Keep

    According to projections, Kirk Cousins should finish ranked 10th in the league in passing TDs (28.7) and third in passing yards (4,671).

    • Kyle Rudolph, TE
    • Round 7, Pick 78
    Valuable Viking

    No tight end saw more overall targets (or red zone targets) than Rudolph last season, and Ron Mexico will hope that trend continues.

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..."
