Led by a Terrific Backfield, ONE LOVE Has a Legit Squad

Draft Summary

ONE LOVE delivered a solid draft performance, taking the fifth overall draft slot and turning it into a team with playoff potential. With an expected record of 10-4-0 (1,586 points), they're projected to finish third in Yahoo Public 795499 League. They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (25th overall), RBs Ezekiel Elliott (5th) and DeMarco Murray (16th), and WRs Alshon Jeffery (36th) and Jarvis Landry (45th). They ended up landing the most prolific group of RBs in the league, as they have Elliott, Murray, Dalvin Cook, and Tevin Coleman for their rotation.

Schedule

ONE LOVE can chalk up Week 10 as a loss. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the softest schedule. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, ONE LOVE also has the league's easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    At four different positions, ONE LOVE picked up projected top-two players (including Aaron Rodgers, Justin Tucker, and Atlanta).

  • The Best Player Plays

    ONE LOVE is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 5.1 years of NFL experience.

  • Risk Averse

    ONE LOVE minimized risk by choosing seven consistent players among their 15 picks.

  • Team of Champions

    ONE LOVE is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy rosters, including Ezekiel Elliott, DeMarco Murray, and Aaron Rodgers.

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on C.J. Prosise, ONE LOVE pounced on him at pick No. 125.

  • Rocket Arm

    Derek Carr has a cannon, projected to rank second among all QBs with 3 TDs over 40 yards.

Player Analysis

    • E. Elliott, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Ezekiel Elliott Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. ONE LOVE should be in decent shape if Elliott gets his 327 projected touches this year.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 16
    Old Fashioned

    ONE LOVE stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Ezekiel Elliott and DeMarco Murray before targeting other positions.

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 3, Pick 25
    Amazing Aaron

    Rodgers was the only quarterback to pass for 40 touchdowns last season, and among QBs, only Tom Brady appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters.

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 45
    Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law

    Jarvis Landry is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 94 projected catches rank fourth in the league.

    • Julian Edelman, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 56
    Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, ONE LOVE got a steal in the sixth round, when they selected Julian Edelman (56th overall pick vs. ADP of 43.8).

Best Available

ONE LOVE is projected to have a pair of below-average positions (TE and WR), but TE is clearly their weakest unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.

    • Cameron Brate
    • Rank 142, ADP 131
    • C.J. Fiedorowicz
    • Rank 144, ADP 134
    • Jason Witten

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..."
