Predicted to Finish Third, ChodeBlast Should Have Attempted to Draft Players That are Good

Draft Summary

"With the second pick in the draft, ChodeBlast selects: Tim Tebow." OK maybe it wasn't that bad, but it might as well have been. Despite being gifted a favorable draft position (second), ChodeBlast is expected to struggle, finishing third in Not Dem Boyz League with a record of 5-9-0 (1,695 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on A.J. Green (third round), Michael Thomas (fourth round), and Doug Baldwin (fifth round). Even so, they ended up with the weakest group 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.


ChodeBlast should use Week 5 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 three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the most daunting schedule.

Draft Notes

  • Not Something to Brag About

    K is the only above-average position on ChodeBlast.

  • May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

    ChodeBlast might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted (Drew Brees) and second-drafted (Marcus Mariota) QBs have similar seasonal point projections.

  • Close to the Vest

    ChodeBlast was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing nine "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • Was That Auto-Draft?

    Bad news for ChodeBlast: They accumulated the fewest projected points in the first half of the draft. Worse news: They accumulated the fewest projected points in the second half of the draft.

  • Team of Champions

    ChodeBlast is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including Le'Veon Bell, LeSean McCoy, and Drew Brees.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    ChodeBlast chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

Player Analysis

    • Le'Veon Bell, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    Feed Thy Beast

    Le'Veon Bell will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish second in the league with 328 touches.

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 7
    Old Fashioned

    ChodeBlast stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Le'Veon Bell and LeSean McCoy before targeting other positions.

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 10
    Haters Gonna Hate

    The rest of Not Dem Boyz League overlooked a gem, and ChodeBlast made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing A.J. Green.

    • Michael Thomas, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 15
    Clickbait Advertising

    Defenses Hate Him, Quarterbacks Love Him! Michael Thomas is expected to catch almost everything this year, as his 93 projected receptions rank fourth in the league.

    • Doug Baldwin, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 18
    Delivering Nightmares

    Doug Baldwin will look to haunt the dreams of opposing corners, as he's projected to finish sixth in the NFL with 9.5 receiving TDs.

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..."
