With the fifth overall selection, Andy O' and 16 was in an ideal position to build a strong team. So much for that. They are projected to finish seventh in 2017 Coca-Cola Kroger Team League with a 6-8-0 record (1,663 points). If they still hope to be a playoff-caliber team, they may want to invest in a psychic or a magic eight ball to help out with the "tough" decisions this year. It seems Andy O' and 16 might care more about having depth at RB than having those RBs actually produce. Their four RBs are projected to average 149 points this season, which is less than the league average of 164. They ultimately landed one of the most prolific groups of WRs in the league, as they have Mike Evans, T.Y. Hilton, Willie Snead, and Brandon Marshall for their rotation.
Andy O' and 16 should do pretty much anything other than watch football during Week 11. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a harder-than-average slate. Andy O' and 16 has the opportunity to exit the gates quickly, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Assessing the Assets
TE is the strongest position for Andy O' and 16, though WR and DEF are also better than the league's average.
May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor
Andy O' and 16 might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted (Jameis Winston) and second-drafted (Matthew Stafford) QBs have similar seasonal point projections.
Fortune Favors the Old
Leading the 2017 Coca-Cola Kroger Team League with an average of 7.8 years of NFL experience per player, Andy O' and 16 is the team most likely to have a player qualify for a senior citizen discount.
Team of Champions?
Andy O' and 16 is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Mike Evans, T.Y. Hilton, and Jordan Reed.
Put All Your Eggs in One Basket
And then watch that basket. Ignoring roster depth, Andy O' and 16 chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
Mike the Monster
- Mike Evans, WR
- Round 1, Pick 5
Second only to Jordy Nelson in receiving TDs last season, Evans appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than any other wide receiver.
Thank You, T.Y.!
- T.Y. Hilton, WR
- Round 2, Pick 20
Hilton notched career-highs in targets, receptions, and receiving yards last year. Only three wide receivers (Evans, Nelson, Brown) appeared more often on fantasy rosters that had earned a spot in their league's playoffs.
Wait For It
- Marshawn Lynch, RB
- Round 3, Pick 29
Andy O' and 16 held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to snag their "lead back" (Marshawn Lynch).
Apparently ADP is Overrated
- C.J. Anderson, RB
- Round 4, Pick 44
With their fourth-round pick, Andy O' and 16 pulled the trigger. They took C.J. Anderson at pick number 44 despite an ADP of just 72.8 across all Yahoo! leagues.
- Jordan Reed, TE
- Round 5, Pick 53
When healthy, you start him. Reed continued rewarding owners last year, despite taking a noticeable step back from his outstanding 2015 campaign. Among all NFL tight ends, only Jimmy Graham appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters.
Andy O' and 16 has three positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including RB and QB, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Theo Riddick
- Rank 109, ADP 125
- Jeremy Hill
- Rank 113, ADP 116
- Sam Bradford
- Rank 160, ADP 124
- Joe Flacco
- Rank 161, ADP 130

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.
