After Some Early Gambles, GET SUM Has a Great Team if Their Goal is to Finish Dead Last

Draft Summary

For some the fifth overall pick is a challenge, for others it's a blessing, but for GET SUM it looks to be a curse and an early indicator of the season ahead. Most teams in the league will pick up an easy win against GET SUM, resulting in their projected 0-14-0 record (10,072 points) and sixth-place finish in BLUE AND WHITE League. They made it a point of focus to load up on pass-catchers, using four of their first seven selections to snag WRs Jordy Nelson (second round), Amari Cooper (fifth round), Stefon Diggs (sixth round), and Davante Adams (seventh round). They wound up with the weakest RB pair in the league, as they'll rely on Christian McCaffrey and Marshawn Lynch to carry the load.

Not a great draft. Or was it? Maybe you know something no one else does. A true underdog. If so, maybe you're Toyota Hall of Fame material. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Week 8 would be a good opportunity for GET SUM to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the most daunting schedule. Along with having the most taxing overall schedule, GET SUM also has the league's second-toughest first four games and second-hardest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Tread Left on the Tires

    With an average of 7.8 years of NFL experience, GET SUM is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.

  • Close to the Vest

    GET SUM was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 17 picks.

  • Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up

    GET SUM got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • Team of Champions

    GET SUM assembled a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, and Amari Cooper.

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, GET SUM chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • Digging Deep

    Theo Riddick is owned in only 6% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward GET SUM for their faith! Or not.

Player Analysis

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    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.

    • Jordy Nelson, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 8
    Nifty Nelson

    Jordy Nelson returned to form last year after missing all of 2015. The Packers wideout led the league in red zone targets, and only Mike Evans appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters last season.

    • Marshawn Lynch, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 17
    Wait For It

    GET SUM held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to snag their "lead back" (Marshawn Lynch).

    • C. McCaffrey, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 20
    A Multifaceted Machine

    McCaffrey is a dual-threat back for GET SUM, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fourth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 587.

    • Amari Cooper, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 29
    Essentially Elite?

    Though he didn't burst into super-stardom like many predicted, Cooper still delivered last season: only three wide receivers (Evans, Nelson, Brown) were rostered more frequently by first-place fantasy squads in 2016.

Best Available

While GET SUM is projected to have four subpar positions, TE is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.

    • Delanie Walker
    • Rank 92, ADP 66
    • Zach Ertz
    • Rank 95, ADP 89
    • Jack Doyle
    • Rank 101, ADP 118
    • Hunter Henry
    • Rank 103, ADP 108

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..."
