Led by a Stellar WR Corps, Tam's Touchdowners Has a Loaded Roster

Draft Summary

The GM of Tam's Touchdowners took the first overall pick and handled it like a seasoned professional. After putting their sweet drafting skills on display for the rest of the league, they're left with a squad that's projected to finish second in The FFL League with a record of 11-3-0 (1,619 points). With six WRs on the roster, Tam's Touchdowners has a star-studded wideout group that's projected to average 161 points this season. The league average is 138. They also built the best group of WRs in the league, as they have Antonio Brown, Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb, and John Brown on their team.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Week 5 might require some waiver-wire magic from Tam's Touchdowners. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the softest schedules. In addition to having the third-easiest overall schedule, Tam's Touchdowners also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Because Three Good Wideouts Wouldn't be Enough

    Tam's Touchdowners drafted four stronger-than-average WRs, even though only two can be started each week.

  • Shouldering the Burden?

    Tam's Touchdowners has three above-average positions on their roster: WR, DEF, and QB.

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    At three different positions, Tam's Touchdowners picked up projected top-3 players (Antonio Brown, Ezekiel Elliott, and Kansas City).

  • Youthful Exuberance

    With an average of just 4.3 years of NFL experience, Tam's Touchdowners has assembled the youngest team in the league.

  • Risk Averse

    Tam's Touchdowners minimized risk by choosing eight consistent players among their 16 picks.

  • Kansas City Chiefs Fan?

    Tam's Touchdowners reached twice to draft a Kansas City Chiefs player.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 1
    Death, Taxes, and Antonio Brown's Reliable Hands

    Brown is projected to catch an NFL-leading 132 balls this year.

    • E. Elliott, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 24
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    Ezekiel Elliott was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

    • Derek Carr, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 72
    Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls

    By taking Derek Carr with the 72nd overall pick, Tam's Touchdowners should have shown more patience. According to the signal-caller's ADP of only 111.1 across all Yahoo! leagues, he could've been chosen later. TLC would disapprove.

    • Kansas City, DEF
    • Round 7, Pick 73
    Was Defense the Best Choice at Pick No. 73?

    Tam's Touchdowners apparently thinks so. Kansas City's Defense is projected to notch 152 points this year, after producing 187 last season.

    • Randall Cobb, WR
    • Round 8, Pick 96
    Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, Tam's Touchdowners got a steal in the eighth round, when they selected Randall Cobb (96th overall pick vs. ADP of 44.8).

Best Available

With three subpar positions on Tam's Touchdowners, RB and K are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.

    • Dion Lewis
    • Rank 68, ADP 90
    • Bilal Powell
    • Rank 122, ADP 126
    • Connor Barth
    • Rank 215, ADP 87

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..."
