With Too Many Reaches Early, The king Is of the Average Variety

Draft Summary

Maybe if The king purchases a lift kit and some giant tires for this roster it won't seem so average. The playoffs are not out of reach for this team, but it will require some effort. They are projected to finish seventh in The Brookside Hood with a record of 6-7-0 (1,560 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Mike Evans (second round), Amari Cooper (fourth round), and Randall Cobb (fifth round). They ended up with the worst group of RBs in the league, as they added LeSean McCoy, Charles Sims and Javorius Allen to their roster.

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

Schedule

The king should use Week 8 to consider life's great mysteries, like why Greenland is ice and Iceland is green. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. The king will have to be on top of their game as the playoffs approach, as the last four games of their season are projected to be more difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • A Talented Trio

    The king has three above-average positions on their roster (QB, DEF, and K).

  • Chicks Dig the Long Ball

    Steven Hauschka is projected to lead the NFL with 4.8 makes from 50+ yards.

  • The king Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Javorius Allen at pick 128 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Allen is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Russell Wilson, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 8
    Basic Math is Optional

    Michael Vick once claimed, "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 476 projected rushing yards, Russell Wilson can channel his inner Vick to help The king this year.

    • Mike Evans, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    171 Reasons for The king to Appreciate Mike Evans

    Evans ranks 10th in the The Brookside Hood League among WRs with 171 projected fantasy points.

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 32
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    LeSean McCoy was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

    • Randall Cobb, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 56
    Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, The king got a steal in the fifth round, when they selected Randall Cobb (56th overall pick vs. ADP of 44).

    • Jared Cook, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 65
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Jared Cook, the weakest value of the round.

Best Available

With three subpar positions on The king, TE and WR are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

    • Vance McDonald
    • Rank 145, ADP 138
    • Benjamin Watson
    • Rank 213, ADP 127
    • Willie Snead
    • Rank 108, ADP 120
    • Bruce Ellington
    • Rank 132, ADP 130

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..."
