Bald Spot figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the first overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 8-6-0 (1,728 points). With that record, they will likely finish fifth in 2017 Coca-Cola Kroger Team League. With their first five picks, Bald Spot focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Matt Ryan (24th overall), RBs David Johnson (1st) and Paul Perkins (49th), and WRs Doug Baldwin (25th) and Golden Tate (48th). They wound up with the most prolific RB combo in the league, as they added Johnson and Perkins.
Week 8 is not looking like a fun one for fantasy football. Bald Spot should look into the joys of scrapbooking, or bird-watching, or just anything that isn't fantasy football. It might not be pretty. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least challenging schedules. In addition to having the second-easiest overall schedule, Bald Spot also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.
Good Luck With That One!
Bald Spot will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Rishard Matthews), fourth- (Adam Thielen), and fifth-ranked (Randall Cobb) wideouts.
Root, Root, Root for the Home Team
Bald Spot is a believer in the hopes of the Detroit Lions this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.
The top half of the Bald Spot roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 3). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, Bald Spot chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).
Bald Spot Went All YOLO Here
Grabbing Brandon LaFell at pick 145 was just a bit of a stretch. LaFell is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
Feed The Beast
- David Johnson, RB
- Round 1, Pick 1
Over here we have a rarity in the wild named David Johnson. Projected to get a league-leading 344 touches, he feasts on feeble defenses.
Matty Ice, Oh So Nice
- Matt Ryan, QB
- Round 2, Pick 24
Second only to Brees in total passing yardage, the league MVP accounted for 9.3 yards per attempt in 2016 (a number that was more than a yard better than any other QB).
Just Heave it to Doug Baldwin
- Doug Baldwin, WR
- Round 3, Pick 25
Baldwin ranks seventh in the 2017 Coca-Cola Kroger Team League among WRs with 232 projected fantasy points.
Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law
- Golden Tate, WR
- Round 4, Pick 48
Golden Tate is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 93 projected catches rank eighth in the league.
- Eric Ebron, TE
- Round 6, Pick 72
With their sixth-round pick, Bald Spot pulled the trigger. They drafted Eric Ebron at pick number 72 despite an ADP of just 126.8 across all Yahoo! leagues.
There are three positions that Bald Spot could look to improve, including TE and DEF, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Austin Hooper
- Rank 128, ADP 137
- Cameron Brate
- Rank 133, ADP 131
- Green Bay Defense
- Rank 180, ADP 141
- Jacksonville Defense
- Rank 182, ADP 144

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.
