It's not everyday you see this type of draft performance. Squatchmaster7 took the third overall pick and turned it into what experts would describe as a "mediocre, if not disappointing," draft. They are projected to finish with a record of 4-10-0, good enough for a "book-a-weekend-getaway-during-the-playoffs," 10th, in Cape League. They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Antonio Brown (first round), Tyreek Hill (third round), and Kelvin Benjamin (fourth round). They put together the worst group of RBs in the league, as they have Isaiah Crowell, Jeremy Hill, Jonathan Stewart, and Danny Woodhead on their team.
Squatchmaster7 should use Week 9 to ponder life's deeper mysteries, like can crop circles ever actually be crop squares? They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have one of the most daunting slates. Along with the second-most taxing overall schedule, both the first month and final month of the season project to be close to league-average in terms of difficulty for Squatchmaster7.
TE or Bust
TE is the only above-average position group for Squatchmaster7.
On the Rise
Squatchmaster7 hopes to break through this season, led by five players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.
Checked Out Early
Squatchmaster7 didn't exactly wrap up the draft on a high note, ending up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
A Dominating Pair
Squatchmaster7 has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Antonio Brown and Jordan Reed) 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 Jaron Brown, Squatchmaster7 pounced on him at pick No. 147.
Squatchmaster7 opted for depth at other positions, selecting only one QB (Jameis Winston) and K (Sebastian Janikowski).
Get a Grip
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 3
Check that dude for stickum! Antonio Brown figures to be a PPR monster this season, with an NFL-leading 110 projected catches.
Rethinking That One
- Tyreek Hill, WR
- Round 3, Pick 27
Tyreek Hill went with the 27th pick, but is projected to fall outside of the top-50 in the NFL in both receiving TDs (90th) and receiving yards (71st) with 4.6 and 758 respectively.
Throwing Caution to the Wind
- K. Benjamin, WR
- Round 4, Pick 46
They grabbed Kelvin Benjamin with the 46th pick, even though his ADP is only 65.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.
- Jordan Reed, TE
- Round 5, Pick 51
When healthy, you start him. Reed continued rewarding owners last year, despite taking a noticeable step back from his outstanding 2015 campaign. Among all NFL tight ends, only Jimmy Graham appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters.
Was the 70th Pick the Right Time for Sammy Watkins?
- Sammy Watkins, WR
- Round 6, Pick 70
Squatchmaster7 apparently believes it is. The Rams' wide receiver is projected to improve to the tune of 138 points this year, after only putting up 55 last year.
There are four positions that Squatchmaster7 could look to upgrade, including RB, which looks like their biggest area of need.
- Jamaal Williams
- Rank 181, ADP 128
- Latavius Murray
- Rank 186, ADP 110
- Alvin Kamara
- Rank 191, ADP 123
- Joe Williams
- Rank 193, ADP 130

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.
