Led by a Talented Group of Receivers, DC4L!! Has Great Shot at Playoffs

Draft Summary

DC4L!! put together an underrated roster that might not dominate week in and week out, but will be firmly entrenched in a playoff spot by season's end. They're projected to finish the season with a 10-4-0 record (1,528 points) in Speedco League, which will be good enough for third. If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Antonio Brown (first round), A.J. Green (third round), and T.Y. Hilton (fourth round). DC4L!! will rely heavily on this group, as they are the best set of WRs in the league.

You're close to greatness. And if being close isn't good enough for you, you might be worthy of the Toyota Hall of Fame. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

While Week 9 has the most players on bye for DC4L!! (five), Week 6 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the softest slates. In addition to having the third-easiest overall schedule, DC4L!! has the league's second-toughest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Stockpiling Talent at TE

    DC4L!! should be in good shape with five position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE is definitely the strongest among them.

  • Dallas Cowboys Fan?

    DC4L!! reached twice to draft a Dallas Cowboys player.

  • Aging Stars

    The top half of the roster, from a projected points perspective, is relatively old (ranked No. 1 in the league with an average of 7.2 years of NFL experience), whereas the bottom half is fairly young (ranked No. 7 with 5.5 years).

  • Team of Champions?

    DC4L!! 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: Antonio Brown, T.Y. Hilton, and Jimmy Graham.

  • Take One Play Off and He Burns You

    DeSean Jackson picks up yardage in bunches, ranking fourth among NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 4.5.

  • Ben Roethlisberger likes to score quickly, ranking fifth among NFL QBs with 2.9 TDs over 40 yards.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    DC4L!! Found Their WR1

    Among all wide receivers, only Mike Evans and Jordy Nelson appeared on more championship rosters than Brown last season.

    • Dak Prescott, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    Time to Sign Up for Andy Behrens' Fantasy Camp

    Despite being selected 13th overall, Dak Prescott is not projected among the NFL's top-15 in either passing TDs (17th with 25.6) or passing yards (16th with 3,990).

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 20
    DC4L!! Gets Groovy With Green

    A.J. averaged 11.0 targets, 7.3 receptions, and 107.1 yards in nine games prior to getting injured in Week 11 last year. The 29-year-old Bengals star is healthy and primed for a big campaign this season.

    • T.Y. Hilton, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 29
    Thank You, T.Y.!

    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.

    • L. Murray, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 36
    How Rebellious of You

    DC4L!! said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fifth round to pick up their first (Latavius Murray).

Best Available

DC4L!! has one below-average position, RB, that they should attempt to upgrade.

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..."
