Projected to Finish Eighth, 3-n-P.LEE-n-CAMO Probably Shouldn't Gloat About This Roster

Draft Summary

While this draft by 3-n-P.LEE-n-CAMO didn't exactly set the world on fire, it didn't destroy their playoff aspirations either. They are expected to be in the mix for a playoff spot with a projected eighth-place finish in The League 2016 League at 5-8-0 (1,718 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Brandon Marshall (second round), Demaryius Thomas (third round), and Jeremy Maclin (fifth round). They ended up with one of the top TE pairs in the league, as they have Rob Gronkowski and Virgil Green 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.

Schedule

Week 9 is not looking like a fun one for fantasy football. 3-n-P.LEE-n-CAMO should look into the joys of scrapbooking, or bird-watching, or just anything that isn't fantasy football. It might not be pretty. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-challenging-than-average schedule. Along with having the sixth-most grueling overall schedule, 3-n-P.LEE-n-CAMO has the league's toughest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Strength in Numbers

    TE is the best position for 3-n-P.LEE-n-CAMO, though WR and K are also stronger-than-average.

  • On the Rise

    3-n-P.LEE-n-CAMO hopes to break through this season, led by four players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.

  • Risk Averse

    3-n-P.LEE-n-CAMO minimized risk by choosing seven consistent players among their 15 picks.

  • Aging Stars

    The top half of the roster (from a projected points perspective) is relatively old (ranked No. 1 in the league with an average of 8 years of NFL experience), whereas the bottom half is fairly young (ranked No. 10 with 4.2 years).

  • Team of Winners

    3-n-P.LEE-n-CAMO 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 (Rob Gronkowski, Brandon Marshall, and Carson Palmer).

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    3-n-P.LEE-n-CAMO chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

Player Analysis

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    A Threat in the Modern Age, Similar to "Beliebers"

    • Carlos Hyde, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 39
    Wait For It

    3-n-P.LEE-n-CAMO held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to snag their "lead back" (Carlos Hyde).

    • Carson Palmer, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 63
    Was the 63rd Pick the Right Time for Carson Palmer?

    3-n-P.LEE-n-CAMO apparently believes it is. The Cardinals' quarterback is projected to earn 296 points this year, after putting up 320 last season.

    • Matt Jones, RB
    • Round 7, Pick 82

Best Available

3-n-P.LEE-n-CAMO is projected to have a pair of subpar positions (DEF and RB), but DEF is clearly their worst unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.

    • Rank 210, ADP 134
    • Green Bay Defense
    • Rank 238, 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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
