Led by a Quality Group of RBs, florida falcon is Loaded with Talent

Draft Summary

Isiah Thompson holds the slowest 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine in the last decade with a mark of 6.02 seconds. That's still faster than this start to the season will be for florida falcon, which is projected to finish second in RISE UP League with a record of 9-5-0 (1,147 points). They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Antonio Brown (first round), Amari Cooper (fourth round), and Randall Cobb (fifth round). These guys could be the key to the season for florida falcon, as they are the top group of WRs in the league.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.

Keeper Summary

florida falcon used their only keeper spot to hold on to Antonio Brown (1.2 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is as valuable as a draft pick in the top half of the first round.


florida falcon should drop off the grid during Week 10. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the weakest schedule. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, florida falcon also has the second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Because Five Wideouts Wouldn't be Enough

    florida falcon drafted six Wide Receivers, even though a max of three can be started each week.

  • Earning Your Paycheck

    florida falcon will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Randall Cobb), fourth- (John Brown), and fifth-ranked (Kelvin Benjamin) wideouts.

  • QB Controversy?

    The coach of florida falcon might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted QB (Philip Rivers) and second-drafted QB (Matthew Stafford) have very similar seasonal point projections.

  • Close to the Vest

    florida falcon was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    florida falcon will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 5, as their only TE (Julius Thomas) and only DEF (Kansas City) will both be idle that week.

  • Decently Mediocre

    While the bottom half of the florida falcon 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. 9).

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    Get a Grip

    • Lamar Miller, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    Feed Thy Beast

    Lamar Miller will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish fourth in the league with 313 touches.

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 27
    Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

    Get on up, it's LeSean McCoy time! He should run cool this season with 128 projected points.

    • Frank Gore, RB
    • Round 7, Pick 67
    Throwing Caution to the Wind

    They grabbed Frank Gore with the 67th pick, even though his ADP is only 92.7 across all Yahoo! leagues.

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..."
