With an Elite WR Unit, BarbariansFromDesert Will Battle Every Week

Draft Summary

Turning a bottom-half draft slot into top-half results is the sign of an impressive effort by the GM. Such was the case with BarbariansFromDesert, which flipped its No. 10 overall pick into a projected 5th-place finish in Yahoo Public 792078. The team is especially deep at the receiver position, as Tyreek Hill and Allen Robinson II are expected to combine for the highest point total of all starting WR groups in the league. BarbariansFromDesert are predicted to put up a total of 2,028 points based on the current roster, which would result in an 8-7 record.

  • Chris Carson

Best Pick

BarbariansFromDesert scored a tremendous early-round value in picking Carson in the 5th round, about 12 slots later than his ADP of 38. After a season in which he rushed for 761 yards and 7 TDs and had 40 catches for 307 yards and 4 TDs in 13 games, totaling 169 fantasy points, Carson is projected to score 201 fantasy points with the Seahawks. That makes him a valuable No. 3 RB for this squad.

  • Wil Lutz

Going out on a Limb

It will take a truly "special" season to justify picking Lutz with the 10th pick of the 9th round, 18 spots earlier than his ADP of 108. He is projected to score 147 fantasy points this season with the Saints, about the same as his total of 135 from last year. But do you really need so many Ks? You can only start one a week.

Draft Notes

  • With only two defenses off the board, BarbariansFromDesert saw a run developing and got in early, taking Los Angeles in the 8th round. In the round that followed, five more defensive units were chosen.

  • Better late than never. With the selection of QB Tom Brady (No. 70 overall), you became the last manager in the league to draft a quarterback.

  • Going off projected records, BarbariansFromDesert have one of the most daunting schedules early in the season in Yahoo Public 792078 with a strength of schedule for the first three weeks that ranks as the 2nd-most difficult. Even so, for the full season, BarbariansFromDesert face a pretty fair path that ranks as the 4th toughest.

  • Even with remaining openings at QB and TE in the 5th round, BarbariansFromDesert chose RB Chris Carson with the 50th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a higher leverage position.

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..."
