Projected to Finish Seventh, Robby2Guns Is Good Enough to Barely Miss Playoffs

Draft Summary

Mediocrity isn't for everyone Robby2Guns, so feel proud. Ok, maybe it is. But hey, you showed up, and that's the important thing. After this average draft performance, Robby2Guns is projected to go 4-10-0 (1,536 points) and finish seventh in Bird up League. They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Jordy Nelson (second round), Alshon Jeffery (third round), and Julian Edelman (fourth round). They put together one of the worst combos of QBs in the league, as they added Carson Palmer and Jameis Winston.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Robby2Guns should use Week 9 to finally build that mini trainyard. Really just about anything other than checking fantasy football will do. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the most challenging schedules. Corresponding with the second-most taxing overall schedule, Robby2Guns also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Stockpiling Talent at TE

    Robby2Guns should be in good shape with three position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE is definitely the strongest among them.

  • Get Off My Lawn

    With an average of 8 years of NFL experience, Robby2Guns is the oldest and by default, least exciting team in the league.

  • Close to the Vest

    Robby2Guns was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • A Dominating Pair

    Robby2Guns has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Adrian Peterson and Carson Palmer) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Robby2Guns nabbed a sleeper in Tyler Boyd with pick No. 122.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, Robby2Guns chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 339 touches, Adrian Peterson is projected to rank second in the NFL in that category. How touching, Robby2Guns.

    • Jordy Nelson, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 19
    The Alchemist

    Robby2Guns chose a WR who's highly likely to turn a deep ball into TD gold. Jordy Nelson is projected to rank fifth among NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 5.4 and TDs over 40 yards with 2.1.

    • Alshon Jeffery, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 22

    • Julian Edelman, WR

    • Greg Olsen, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 42
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    Greg Olsen was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

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..."
