Slated for a Third-Place Finish, #pitbulllivesmatter Can Compete With Anyone

Draft Summary

A masterful draft-day performance by the GM of #pitbulllivesmatter turned the seventh overall pick into a projected finish of third. They're expected to finish 10-4-0 (1,583 points) in Cape League. They felt they could wait on quarterback, holding out until the 10th round to secure Dak Prescott with the 114th overall selection. They also ended up landing one of the best RB combos in the league, as they'll rely on Leonard Fournette and Melvin Gordon to carry the load.

Your draft proves you're a student of the game (a student with good grades). But are you valedictorian of the game? If so, you're right for the Toyota Hall of Fame. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Week 10 would be a good opportunity for #pitbulllivesmatter to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. 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 a tougher-than-average slate. In addition to having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, #pitbulllivesmatter also has the most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    With five better-than-average positions on #pitbulllivesmatter, TE and RB are projected as especially strong units.

  • Up and Comers

    Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and #pitbulllivesmatter may have done just that, with five players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Apparently #pitbulllivesmatter missed the point of drafting a back-up defense. In Week 10, both Kansas City and Philadelphia will be on bye.

  • Decently Mediocre

    While the bottom half of the #pitbulllivesmatter roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 3), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).

  • Team of Winners

    #pitbulllivesmatter is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Melvin Gordon, Jimmy Graham, and LeGarrette Blount).

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Hoping to play the favorable matchups week-to-week, #pitbulllivesmatter chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

Player Analysis

    • Melvin Gordon, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    Feed Thy Beast

    Melvin Gordon will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish fifth in the league with 298 touches.

    • L. Fournette, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Old Fashioned

    #pitbulllivesmatter stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Melvin Gordon and Leonard Fournette before targeting other positions.

    • Jimmy Graham, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 55
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Cape League overlooked a gem, and #pitbulllivesmatter made the highest value pick of the round by taking Jimmy Graham.

    • Eric Decker, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 66
    That Just Happened

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

    • Doug Martin, RB
    • Round 7, Pick 79
    Was Doug Martin the Best Choice at Pick No. 79?

    #pitbulllivesmatter apparently thought so. The Buccaneers' RB is projected to improve to the tune of 119 points this year, after only putting up 72 last season.

Best Available

If #pitbulllivesmatter is looking to make a roster move, WR is a position they could look to upgrade first.

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..."
