With the third overall pick, Max Kingston put on a show for the competition. Drafting a complete team capable of winning week in and week out, they're projected to finish third in League ANIGAV League with a record of 8-5-0 (3,048 points).
Max Kingston took advantage of all four of their keeper positions, stockpiling pass-catchers. They held on to three WRs among their keepers-- Jordy Nelson (13.6 ADP), Allen Robinson (45.6 ADP), and Donte Moncrief (103.7 ADP). On average, their four keepers are significantly more valuable (by 31.3%) than the draft picks that they replaced.
Max Kingston can write off Week 8 as a scheduling injustice and use that time to consider other injustices: for example, why doesn't Chewbacca get a medal during the ceremony at the end of Star Wars? Wookie bias? They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the most challenging schedules. Max Kingston could run into an early buzz saw, as the first four games of their season are projected to be more difficult than the league average.
TE is the strongest position for Max Kingston, though DEF and WR aren't too shabby either.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Max Kingston will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 10, as their only K (Cairo Santos) and only DEF (Kansas City) will both be on bye that week.
No Back-Up No Cry
Ignoring roster depth, Max Kingston chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).
With four steals in the first 12 rounds (including Jordy Nelson, Kansas City, and Matthew Stafford), Max Kingston made some shrewd moves.
Did Stretch Armstrong Make That Pick?
Grabbing Jamie Collins Sr. at pick 250 was definitely a reach. Sr. is owned on just a handful of teams across all Yahoo! leagues.
Todd Gurley Doesn't Read the Playbook
- Todd Gurley, RB
- Round 1, Pick 3
The playbook reads him. Max Kingston should be in decent shape if Gurley gets his 307 projected touches this year.
A Bit of a Reach
- D. Johnson Jr., RB
- Round 4, Pick 54
Max Kingston went out on a limb with their fourth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Duke Johnson Jr. has an ADP of 125.5, but he was grabbed at pick No. 54. Patience is a virtue, Max Kingston.
Max Kingston Upgrades WR Corps with Matthews at Pick No. 82
- J. Matthews, WR
- Round 6, Pick 82
The Bills' wide receiver is projected to net 212 points this year, after putting up 172 last season.
Prosise Provides Backfield Boost at Pick No. 87
- C.J. Prosise, RB
- Round 7, Pick 87
The Seahawks' running back is projected to significantly exceed his production (68 points) from last season.
- Jordy Nelson, WR
- Round 8, Pick 110
Max Kingston may have found a gem in the eighth round, grabbing Jordy Nelson (110th overall pick vs. ADP of 13.6).
There are three positions that Max Kingston could look to improve, including K and RB, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Josh Lambo
- Rank 229, ADP 136
- Phil Dawson
- Rank 233, ADP 133

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.
