Coinciding with Some Early-Round Reaches, Chris's Crazy Team Will Only Scare Opponents if They Wear a Mask

Draft Summary

Entering the draft with the first overall pick, the expectations were high for Chris's Crazy Team. Then they drafted. Those expectations quickly vanished with a projected mediocre fourth-place finish in Niverville Fantasy Football League at 6-11-0 (2,700 points). They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Russell Wilson (25th overall), RBs Ezekiel Elliott (13th) and Eddie Lacy (24th), and WRs Odell Beckham Jr. (1st) and Dez Bryant (12th). They ended up with one of the worst groups of WRs in the league, as they have Beckham Jr., Bryant, Doug Baldwin, and Michael Floyd for their rotation.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.

Keeper Summary

Chris's Crazy Team chose to use none of their two keeper spots, instead leaving their fantasy fate solely in the hands of the draft.


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Chris's Crazy Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the entire season, they have the most difficult schedule. Corresponding with the most grueling overall schedule, Chris's Crazy Team also has the league's second-toughest first four games and second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • RB or Bust

    Unfortunately, RB is the only strong position on Chris's Crazy Team. Fortunately, there's always next year.

  • It's a Marathon, Not a Sprint

    Chris's Crazy Team didn't exactly wrap up the draft on a high note, ending up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • Team of Champions?

    Chris's Crazy Team 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: Odell Beckham Jr., Carson Palmer, and DeAngelo Williams.

  • Trigger Happy

    With their 11th-round pick, Chris's Crazy Team pulled the trigger. They drafted Allen Hurns at pick number 61 despite an ADP of just 81 across all Yahoo! leagues.

  • Insider Trading?

    Dak Prescott is owned in only 8% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Chris's Crazy Team has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

  • A Large Target for the QB

    Coby Fleener ranks fourth in the Niverville Fantasy Football League among TEs with 159 projected fantasy points.

Player Analysis

    • O. Beckham Jr., WR
    • Round 1, Pick 1
    Does Odell Beckham Jr. Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

    Because his all-purpose yardage projections are tasty. Beckham Jr. is ranked eighth in the league with 1,537 all-purpose yards.

    • Dez Bryant, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 12
    A Nose for the End Zone

    Dez Bryant is expected to cross the goal line 9.2 times, placing him third in the NFL in projected receiving TDs. His 1,286 projected receiving yards also place him eighth in the league.

    • E. Elliott, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 13
    Wait For It

    Chris's Crazy Team held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to snag their "lead back" (Ezekiel Elliott).

    • Russell Wilson, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 25
    Effective, Efficient, and Elite

    Wilson joined Brady and Rodgers as the only QBs to throw for more than 25 touchdowns and have fewer than 10 interceptions last season.

    • Carson Palmer, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 36
    Was Carson Palmer Worth it at Pick No. 36?

    Chris's Crazy Team sure hopes so. The Cardinals' signal-caller is projected to notch 380 points this year, after producing 417 last season.

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..."
