Despite an Exciting Set of WRs, Donte Monqueif is Going to Have a Long Season

Draft Summary

What's important Donte Monqueif is that you have fun, regardless of the final score. Like that quote from Vince Lombardi, "Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing." Oh wait no, that's not the right quote for this. Turns out there aren't many quotes about having fun and losing, so let's just get to the projections. Donte Monqueif is expected to finish 11th in 28-3 League with a record of 2-11-0 (1,326 points). They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Jameis Winston (45th overall), RBs Kareem Hunt (28th) and Ty Montgomery (52nd), and WRs Antonio Brown (4th) and Brandin Cooks (21st). They ultimately collected the highest-scoring set of WRs in the league, as they have Brown, Cooks, Golden Tate, and Donte Moncrief on their team.

Let this mediocre draft inspire you to always do better. To win your league. To get in the Toyota Hall of Fame and inspire a nation. Nominate yourself today.

Schedule

Donte Monqueif will need to tap into their depth Week 9, as their top two projected scorers (Antonio Brown and Brandin Cooks) will be off that weekend. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the most daunting slates. Along with the second-most demanding overall schedule, the first four games and last four games of the season are fairly average for Donte Monqueif.

Draft Notes

  • Good Luck With That One!

    Donte Monqueif will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Golden Tate), fourth- (Donte Moncrief), and fifth-ranked (Tyler Lockett) wideouts.

  • Highlight Reel

    Donte Monqueif is loaded at WR, but DEF isn't too shabby, either.

  • Sky's the Limit

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

  • The Best Player Plays

    Donte Monqueif is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 4.5 years of NFL experience.

  • Super Sleepers

    At picks No. 165 and 172, Donte Monqueif snagged a couple of late-round fliers with upside in Dion Lewis and O.J. Howard.

  • Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in 28-3 League, Donte Monqueif may have found a gem in Tyler Lockett. Including his 1,242 projected return yards, he ranks first in the league with 2,273 all-purpose yards.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Donte Monqueif Found Their WR1

    • Brandin Cooks, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 21
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Brandin Cooks had less value than any other pick of the round.

    • Kareem Hunt, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 28
    Wait For It

    Donte Monqueif held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to snag their "lead back" (Kareem Hunt).

    • Jameis Winston, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 45
    If the Defense is Smithers, then Winston is Mr. Burns

    Jameis Winston likes to burn defenses over the top, ranking fourth among all QBs with 4.9 plays over 40 yards.

    • Ty Montgomery, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 52
    A Multifaceted Machine

    Montgomery is a dual-threat back for Donte Monqueif, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fifth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 531.

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..."
