With a Projected Finish of Seventh, King Tut Isn't Anything to Fear

Draft Summary

Hopefully just because this draft was average, King Tut won't purchase a muscle car or jacked-up truck to overcompensate. And hey, with the right breaks, maybe this team can reach the playoffs. They are projected to finish seventh in RISE UP League with a record of 6-8-0 (1,044 points). With four RBs on the roster, King Tut has a quality backfield; their RBs are projected to average 97 points this season, close to the league average of 104. They also built the best QB combo in the league, as they added Cam Newton and Russell Wilson to their squad.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.

Keeper Summary

King Tut took advantage of their only keeper position to hold on to Cam Newton (20.8 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is less valuable than a first-round draft pick.


King Tut should use Week 11 to finally read War and Peace. Anything that isn't following their fantasy football team. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have an easier-than-average schedule. Along with the fifth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for King Tut.

Draft Notes

  • Decent Idea, Mediocre Execution

    King Tut might require waiver wire help in Week 11, as their No. 1- (Brandon Marshall), No. 2- (Keenan Allen) and No. 4-ranked (Mohamed Sanu) WRs will all be idle that week.

  • Up, Up, and Away

    With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, King Tut hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the King Tut roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 8).

  • Fantasy FĂștbol

    This is the American version, folks. King Tut elected to go with three kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.

  • A Dominating Pair

    King Tut has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Cam Newton and Brandon Marshall) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Beginning with a Bang

    King Tut got off to a sizzling start, amassing the most projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • Cam Newton, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    Did King Tut Just Dab?

    Among QBs last season, only Tom Brady appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than Carolina's signal-caller.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 19
    116 Excuses to Cheer for Brandon Marshall

    Marshall ranks seventh in the RISE UP League among wideouts with 116 projected fantasy points.

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 22
    The Power of Persuasion

    Now would be a reasonable time for King Tut to encourage the RISE UP League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Keenan Allen and his 99 projected catches (ranked fifth in the NFL).

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

    King Tut held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to snag their "lead back" (Carlos Hyde).

    • Russell Wilson, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 42
    Effective, Efficient, and Elite

    Wilson joined Brady and Rodgers as the only QBs to throw for more than 25 touchdowns and have fewer than 10 interceptions last season.

Best Available

King Tut has three positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including RB and DEF, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Rank 95, ADP 117

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..."
