Led by a Quality Group of RBs, Rebelbears Has Chance to Win This Thing

Draft Summary

Rebelbears managed to take the first overall pick and convert it into fantasy gold with an expected finish of second place in COE et al. League. Projected to #FeelTheWins with a 9-2-2 record this year, we hope the GM of Rebelbears filters their way to glory with our new custom Y! Fantasy Football SnapChat Lens. They obviously understand how important the running back position is in fantasy football. They used three of their first five picks on RBs David Johnson (first round), Todd Gurley (second round), and Ty Montgomery (fourth round). These players will be heavily relied upon by Rebelbears, as they are the top set of RBs 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.

Schedule

Rebelbears should do pretty much anything other than watch football during Week 8. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the easiest slates. Corresponding with the second-easiest overall schedule, Rebelbears also has the league's second-easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Pure Silliness

    Rebelbears's three best RBs (David Johnson, Todd Gurley, and Ty Montgomery) will all be on bye in Week 8.

  • Carrying the Load

    Rebelbears has a trio of above-average positions leading the way (RB, TE, and QB).

  • On the Rise

    Rebelbears hopes to break through this season, led by four players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers Fan?

    Rebelbears is a believer in the hopes of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season, grabbing a couple of players on that team sooner than their ADPs might suggest.

  • A Dominating Pair

    Rebelbears has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (David Johnson and Drew Brees) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

Player Analysis

    • David Johnson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 1
    No Backfield Committee Here

    Projected to touch the ball 344 times this year (most in the NFL), David Johnson could deliver for Rebelbears each and every week.

    • Todd Gurley, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    Traditionalist

    Rebelbears stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, nabbing David Johnson and Todd Gurley right off the bat.

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 3, Pick 21
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of COE et al. League overlooked a gem, and Rebelbears made the highest value pick of the round by taking Rob Gronkowski.

    • Ty Montgomery, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 40
    He Can Catch, Too

    Ty Montgomery is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fifth among RBs with 531 projected receiving yards.

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 41
    A High-Volume Passer

    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.

Best Available

Rebelbears has three positions where an upgrade could be beneficial, with DEF being the most immediate need.

    • Los Angeles Defense
    • Rank 171, ADP 129
    • Jacksonville Defense
    • Rank 183, ADP 144
    • Green Bay Defense
    • Rank 190, 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..."
