Headlined by a Quality Backfield, PIERMONSTERS are Poised to Dominate

Draft Summary

Blessed with a juicy draft position (No. 2 overall), PIERMONSTERS had an exceptional performance. The team is especially talented at the running back position, as Christian McCaffrey, James Conner, and Cam Akers are expected to combine for the highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. PIERMONSTERS are projected to finish 1st in Motor City Football with a perfect record of 14-0 (3,811 points).

  • Tyler Allgeier

Best Pick

What a late-round bargain for PIERMONSTERS, who selected Allgeier in the 20th round, about seven rounds later than his ADP of 130. Allgeier is projected to score 87 fantasy points with the Falcons, which would make him the No. 6 RB for this squad.

  • Tom Brady

Reach Pick

You must have had some inside intel when making the decision to choose Brady with the 9th pick of the 4th round, about two rounds earlier than his ADP of 65. Projected to score 470 fantasy points this season with the Buccaneers, he'll need to outperform expectations to surpass last year when he threw for 5,316 yards and 43 TDs with 12 interceptions, posting 523 fantasy points. Based on projections, Brady will slot in as the No. 2 QB for PIERMONSTERS to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • With only two defenses off the board, PIERMONSTERS saw a run on the horizon and got in early, taking Tampa Bay with the 119th overall pick. Three more defensive units were snatched up in the round that followed.

  • Fashionably late? You became the last manager in the league to draft a wide receiver with your selection of Terry McLaurin (No. 59 overall).

  • Week 11 will be a rude awakening for PIERMONSTERS, as they have six players on a bye, led by Tom Brady, Jaylen Waddle, and Travis Etienne Jr.. The Overkiller's, your Week 11 opponent, will have three players (Tua Tagovailoa, Rashaad Penny, and Miami) getting the week off.

  • PIERMONSTERS have one of the lightest schedules in Motor City Football this season based on projections with a strength of schedule ranked as the 2nd easiest.

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..."
