With an Elite Set of WRs, Burt Maclin FBI Will be a Tough Team

Draft Summary

Picking late (10th overall), Burt Maclin FBI did what they could with what they were given. While this team isn't a juggernaut by any means, it's a team capable of reaching the playoffs if the chips fall their way. They are expected to finish fourth in A League of Their Own with a record of 9-4-0 (2,069 points). With six WRs on the roster, Burt Maclin FBI guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 216, their WRs' projected average of 216 points won't be much different than the rest of the wideouts around the league. They've ultimately got the top group of WRs in the league, as they have A.J. Green, Michael Thomas, and Alshon Jeffery.

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.

Keeper Summary

Burt Maclin FBI used both of their keeper slots to retain Michael Thomas (16.3 ADP) and Tom Brady (24.7 ADP). On average, their two keepers are overwhelmingly more valuable (by 65.7%) than the draft picks that they replaced.

Schedule

Burt Maclin FBI should use Week 10 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why don't the pants worn by Dr. Bruce Banner rip when he transforms into the Hulk? It's better to think about that than pay attention to fantasy football. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a harder-than-average schedule. Burt Maclin FBI 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.

Draft Notes

  • Baltimore Ravens Fan?

    Burt Maclin FBI is a believer in the hopes of the Baltimore Ravens this year, grabbing three players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.

  • Highlight Reel

    Burt Maclin FBI is loaded at TE, but QB isn't too shabby, either.

  • "It's Not Whether You Get Knocked Down; It's Whether You Get Up"

    After drafting the fewest projected points in the league over the draft's first half, Burt Maclin FBI accumulated the most during the second half. Vince Lombardi would be proud.

  • On the Rise

    Burt Maclin FBI hopes to break through this season, led by six players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.

  • Batman Needs Robin

    Just like Ezekiel Elliott needs Darren McFadden. Burt Maclin FBI hedged their bets by snagging a couple of teammates with their second-round and eighth-round selections.

  • Decently Mediocre

    While the bottom half of the Burt Maclin FBI roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 12).

Player Analysis

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    Burt Maclin FBI Gets Groovy With Green

    A.J. averaged 11.0 targets, 7.3 receptions, and 107.1 yards in nine games prior to getting injured in Week 11 last year. The 29-year-old Bengals star is healthy and primed for a big campaign this season.

    • E. Elliott, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    Plowing Through Defenses

    Ezekiel Elliott is expected to finish fourth in the NFL in rushing TDs with 9.1.

    • Marshawn Lynch, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 34
    Beast Mode is Back

    Averaging 1,339 rush yards and 12 rush TDs per year across four full seasons in Seattle (2011-14), Lynch returns to football behind one of the most talented offensive lines in the NFL.

    • M. Bennett, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 58
    A Big Target in the Red Zone

    With 8.1 projected TD catches, Martellus Bennett ranks fourth in the NFL among TEs in that category.

    • Danny Woodhead, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 63
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Danny Woodhead, the weakest value of the round.

Best Available

While Burt Maclin FBI is projected to have four below-average positions, RB is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.

    • Jamaal Williams
    • Rank 181, ADP 128
    • Alvin Kamara
    • Rank 191, ADP 123
    • Joe Williams
    • Rank 193, ADP 130

    • Rank 220, ADP 126

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..."
