Despite a Set of Monster RBs, Shivakamini Threw the Draft on Purpose?

Draft Summary

You know what, Shivakamini, maybe you should just hold off on pursuing your dreams for a while. Maybe just ask them where they're going and hook up with 'em later, when you have a team capable of winning. Shivakamini is projected to finish 10th in Beat the Brits League with a record of 3-11-0 (1,639 points). They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Tom Brady (48th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (8th) and Eddie Lacy (28th), and WRs Keenan Allen (13th) and Sammy Watkins (33rd). They also landed the top group of RBs in the league, as they have Peterson, Lacy, DeMarco Murray, and Giovani Bernard on 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.


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Shivakamini has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the toughest slates. Along with the second-most taxing overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Shivakamini.

Draft Notes

  • Like 10,000 Spoons When All You Need Is A Knife

    Shivakamini's only stronger-than-average position is DEF.

  • Sky's the Limit

    With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Shivakamini hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Risk Averse

    Shivakamini minimized risk by choosing seven consistent players among their 16 picks.

  • Going Out with a Whimper

    Shivakamini didn't end the night the way they might have liked, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • A Dominating Pair

    Shivakamini has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Adrian Peterson and Tom Brady) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Super Sleepers

    At picks No. 133 and 148, Shivakamini snagged a couple of late-round fliers with upside in Christine Michael and Dak Prescott.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 8
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 336 touches, Adrian Peterson is projected to rank second in the NFL in that category. How touching, Shivakamini.

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law

    Keenan Allen is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 99 projected catches rank fifth in the league.

    • Tom Brady, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 48
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Tom Brady, the weakest value of the round.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 53
    Was DeMarco Murray the Best Choice at Pick No. 53?

    Shivakamini apparently thinks so. The Titans' RB is projected to get 142 points this year, just a bit better than last season.

    • DeSean Jackson, WR
    • Round 7, Pick 68
    Was DeSean Jackson the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 68?

    Shivakamini apparently thinks so. The Redskins' wideout is projected to improve to the tune of 115 points this year, after only putting up 75 last year.

Best Available

While Shivakamini is projected to have five below-average positions, QB is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.

    • Marcus Mariota
    • Rank 105, ADP 122
    • Matthew Stafford
    • Rank 107, ADP 123
    • Ryan Tannehill
    • Rank 138, ADP 132
    • Jay Cutler
    • Rank 148, ADP 122
  • Bye Week Points Lost

  • Avg Points by Position vs League

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..."
