Led by a Stellar WR Unit, Girl Power Has a Squad Built to Reach the Playoffs

Draft Summary

When a bottom-half draft slot yields top-half results, that's the sign of a strong effort by the GM. Such was the case with Girl Power, which flipped its 12th overall pick into a projected fourth-place finish in Cape League (9-5-0, 1,483 points). They honed in on wide receivers early, using their top three selections to snag Jordy Nelson (12th overall), Michael Thomas (13th), and T.Y. Hilton (36th). These players will be heavily relied upon by Girl Power, as they are one of the most prolific groups of WRs 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

Girl Power should use Week 5 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like what was the greatest thing before sliced bread? No, seriously, think about it. It's better than thinking about fantasy football that week. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the lightest schedule. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, Girl Power also has the softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Strength in Numbers

    WR is the best position for Girl Power, though QB and DEF are also stronger-than-average.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

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

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    Girl Power has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jordy Nelson and T.Y. Hilton) 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 C.J. Prosise, Girl Power pounced on him at pick No. 156.

  • Bargain Shopper

    With three steals in the first 9 rounds (Joe Mixon, Denver, and T.Y. Hilton), Girl Power made some shrewd moves.

  • Tuck It And Run

    Newton is projected to deliver 475 rushing yards, and ranks second among QBs in that category.

Player Analysis

    • Jordy Nelson, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 12
    Nifty Nelson

    Jordy Nelson returned to form last year after missing all of 2015. The Packers wideout led the league in red zone targets, and only Mike Evans appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters last season.

    • Michael Thomas, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    Just Heave it to Michael Thomas

    Thomas ranks 10th in the Cape League among WRs with 178 projected fantasy points.

    • T.Y. Hilton, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 36
    Thank You, T.Y.!

    Hilton notched career-highs in targets, receptions, and receiving yards last year. Only three wide receivers (Evans, Nelson, Brown) appeared more often on fantasy rosters that had earned a spot in their league's playoffs.

    • Lamar Miller, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 37
    How Rebellious of You

    Girl Power said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (Lamar Miller).

    • Joe Mixon, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 60
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Girl Power got a steal in snatching Joe Mixon in the fifth round (60th overall pick vs. ADP of 43.6).

Best Available

There are three positions that Girl Power could look to upgrade, including TE, which looks like their biggest area of need.

    • O.J. Howard
    • Rank 188, ADP 125
    • Jared Cook
    • Rank 189, ADP 128
    • David Njoku
    • Rank 202, ADP 131
    • Charles Clay
    • Rank 210, ADP 125

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..."
