Is someone going to put out that dumpster fire? Oh, whoops, that's not a dumpster fire that's the 2 gurleys 1 cup roster. Easy mistake with a team that needs this much work. As the roster stands, 2 gurleys 1 cup is projected to finish ninth in Broken Achilles League with a record of 4-9-0 (2,046 points). With their first five picks, 2 gurleys 1 cup aimed for balance, selecting QB Tom Brady (37th overall), RBs Todd Gurley (4th) and C.J. Anderson (44th), and WRs Sammy Watkins (17th) and Brandin Cooks (24th). They ended up with the worst QB pair in the league, as they added Eli Manning and Brady to their squad.
2 gurleys 1 cup can write off Week 9 as a scheduling injustice and use that time to consider other injustices: for example, why doesn't Chewbacca get a medal during the ceremony at the end of Star Wars? Wookie bias? They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-challenging-than-average schedule. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for 2 gurleys 1 cup.
RB or Bust

Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up
2 gurleys 1 cup 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?

A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
2 gurleys 1 cup nabbed a sleeper in Terrelle Pryor with pick No. 144.
The Bargain Whisperer
2 gurleys 1 cup was hunting for steals throughout the draft, snapping up a trio of bargains in the first 9 rounds (Eli Manning, C.J. Anderson, and Michael Floyd).
No RB by Committee Here
- Todd Gurley, RB
- Round 1, Pick 4
Look up "workhorse back" in the dictionary and there is a picture of Todd Gurley. 2 gurleys 1 cup should be in good shape if he reaches his league-leading 349 projected touches this year.
Tom's Trophy Delivery Service
- Tom Brady, QB
- Round 4, Pick 37
Only Devonta Freeman appeared on more championship rosters than the 38-year-old Brady last season.
Gary the Great
- Gary Barnidge, TE
- Round 6, Pick 57
Drafting for last year's results is risky, but among all TEs in 2015, Barnidge ranked fourth in both TDs and yardage, third in receptions, and second in targets.
Was the 64th Pick the Right Time for Jonathan Stewart?
- J. Stewart, RB
- Round 7, Pick 64
2 gurleys 1 cup apparently believes so. The Panthers' running back is projected to net 189 points this year, after putting up 164 last year.
2 gurleys 1 cup has five positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including WR and QB, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Tavon Austin
- Rank 92, ADP 107
- Kamar Aiken
- Rank 110, ADP 128
- Tyrod Taylor
- Rank 90, ADP 113
- Jameis Winston
- Rank 96, ADP 118

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.
