GoodellThaGod took advantage of a favorable draft slot and built the kind of roster that makes opponents "go out of town" or "spend time with the kids" when they see your team on the schedule. GoodellThaGod is projected to finish first in Cape League at 12-2-0 (1,590 points). With their first five picks, GoodellThaGod aimed for balance, selecting QB Tom Brady (26th overall), RBs Le'Veon Bell (2nd) and Mark Ingram (50th), and WRs Doug Baldwin (23rd) and Davante Adams (47th). They've ultimately got the highest-scoring group of RBs in the league, as they added Bell, Bilal Powell, Tevin Coleman, and Ingram.
Week 9 may cause some frustration for GoodellThaGod, as their top two projected scorers (Tom Brady and Le'Veon Bell) will be resting that weekend. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the hardest schedules. In addition to having the third-most taxing overall schedule, GoodellThaGod also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.
GoodellThaGod has four stronger-than-average positions with QB and TE projected to lead the way.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
GoodellThaGod will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 9, as their only K (Chris Boswell) and only DEF (Minnesota) will both be on bye that week.
The top half of the GoodellThaGod roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).
Put All Your Eggs in One Basket
And then watch that basket. Ignoring roster depth, GoodellThaGod chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).
A Dominating Pair
GoodellThaGod has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Le'Veon Bell and Tom Brady) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
Full Control Early On
GoodellThaGod began things with a bang, nabbing the most projected points in the league during the draft's first half.
Bell is Hungry
- Le'Veon Bell, RB
- Round 1, Pick 2
And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank second in the NFL with 327 touches.
185 Excuses to Cheer for Doug Baldwin
- Doug Baldwin, WR
- Round 2, Pick 23
Baldwin ranks eighth in the Cape League among wideouts with 185 projected fantasy points.
- Tom Brady, QB
- Round 3, Pick 26
For the second consecutive year, Tom appeared on more championship rosters than any other QB. He's averaged 297.3 yards, 2.3 TDs, and 0.3 INTs per regular-season game over that stretch.
A Bit of a Reach
- Mark Ingram, RB
- Round 5, Pick 50
GoodellThaGod went out on a limb with their fifth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Mark Ingram has an ADP of 75.4, but he was grabbed at pick No. 50. Patience is a virtue, GoodellThaGod.
Coleman Reinforces Ground Attack for GoodellThaGod
- Tevin Coleman, RB
- Round 6, Pick 71
The Falcons' running back is projected to record 150 points this year, after producing 160 last year.
K and WR are expected to be the worst positions for GoodellThaGod and a potential area of need.
- Cairo Santos
- Rank 205, ADP 126
- Matt Prater
- Rank 207, ADP 129
- Corey Davis
- Rank 139, ADP 126
- Robby Anderson
- Rank 144, ADP 127

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..."
