Just like the Chargers selecting Ryan Leaf, the GM of ElLocoSoyYo made some head-scratching decisions with their top draft slot. They're projected to finish 10th in The Rubber Band aka La Liga League with a record of 4-9-0 (2,210 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Mike Evans (first round), T.Y. Hilton (third round), and Allen Robinson (fifth round). They ultimately collected the weakest set of RBs in the league, as they added Lamar Miller, Ezekiel Elliott, Doug Martin, and Derrick Henry.
ElLocoSoyYo should do pretty much anything other than watch football during Week 11. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the most challenging slate. Along with the most demanding overall schedule, the first four games and last four games of the season are fairly average for ElLocoSoyYo.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
ElLocoSoyYo might require waiver wire help in Week 11, as their No. 1- (Mike Evans), No. 2- (T.Y. Hilton) and No. 4-ranked (Donte Moncrief) WRs will all be idle that week.
WR or Bust
WR is the only above-average position group for ElLocoSoyYo.
ElLocoSoyYo may have to rely on a Ouija board each week. Their top-drafted (Carson Palmer) and second-drafted (Carson Wentz) QBs have fairly similar seasonal point projections.
While the bottom half of the ElLocoSoyYo roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 3), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 12).
Team of Champions?
ElLocoSoyYo 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, Ezekiel Elliott, and T.Y. Hilton.
ElLocoSoyYo got off to a sluggish start, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.
Mike the Monster
- Mike Evans, WR
- Round 1, Pick 8
Second only to Jordy Nelson in receiving TDs last season, Evans appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than any other wide receiver.
Plowing Through Defenses
- E. Elliott, RB
- Round 2, Pick 17
Ezekiel Elliott is expected to finish fourth in the NFL in rushing TDs with 9.1.
Thank You, T.Y.!
- T.Y. Hilton, WR
- Round 3, Pick 32
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.
Rethinking That One
- Allen Robinson, WR
- Round 5, Pick 56
Allen Robinson may not justify his 56th overall draft pick if projections hold true. Currently, he is estimated to fall outside the NFL's top-20 in both yards (22nd with 1,040) and TDs (28th with 7.7).
Martin Provides Backfield Boost at Pick No. 65
- Doug Martin, RB
- Round 6, Pick 65
The Buccaneers' running back is projected to improve to the tune of 139 points this year, after only putting up 86 last season.
ElLocoSoyYo has four positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including RB and QB, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Samaje Perine
- Rank 166, ADP 119
- Joe Williams
- Rank 193, ADP 130
- Tyrod Taylor
- Rank 133, ADP 128
- Joe Flacco
- Rank 155, 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.
