Despite an Exciting Set of WRs, La Liga's Cuban Jew Threw the Draft on Purpose?

Draft Summary

Whatever strategy La Liga's Cuban Jew used to build this team, it should be thrown out, because it didn't work. Picking 12th, they struggled to piece together a competitive team and as a result, are projected to finish 11th 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 Jordy Nelson (first round), Amari Cooper (second round), and Emmanuel Sanders (fifth round). These players will be heavily relied upon by La Liga's Cuban Jew, as they are one of the best sets of WRs in the league.

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.


Week 11 might not be the highest scoring week for La Liga's Cuban Jew, as their top two projected scorers (Andrew Luck and Jameis Winston) will be off that weekend. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. Corresponding with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, La Liga's Cuban Jew also has the second-hardest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • WR or Bust

    WR is the only above-average position group for La Liga's Cuban Jew.

  • May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

    La Liga's Cuban Jew might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted (Jameis Winston) and second-drafted (Andrew Luck) QBs have similar seasonal point projections.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With 10 "low-risk" players among their 16 picks, La Liga's Cuban Jew is looking for dependable help.

  • Good to Have Balance, Right?

    While the bottom half of the La Liga's Cuban Jew roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top half is among the weakest (ranked No. 11).

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    La Liga's Cuban Jew has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jordy Nelson and Amari Cooper) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • It's How You Finish

    La Liga's Cuban Jew made every other squad look silly after some amazing halftime adjustments, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • Jordy Nelson, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 12
    Nifty Nelson

    Jordy Nelson returned to form last year after missing all of 2015. The Packers wideout led the league in red zone targets, and only Mike Evans appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters last season.

    • Amari Cooper, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    Essentially Elite?

    Though he didn't burst into super-stardom like many predicted, Cooper still delivered last season: only three wide receivers (Evans, Nelson, Brown) were rostered more frequently by first-place fantasy squads in 2016.

    • Carlos Hyde, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 36
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, La Liga's Cuban Jew didn't grab their first RB (Carlos Hyde) until the third round.

    • Marshawn Lynch, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 37
    Beast Mode is Back

    Averaging 1,339 rush yards and 12 rush TDs per year across four full seasons in Seattle (2011-14), Lynch returns to football behind one of the most talented offensive lines in the NFL.

    • J. Crowder, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 61
    Was the 61st Pick the Right Time for Jamison Crowder?

    La Liga's Cuban Jew apparently believes it is. The Redskins' wide receiver is projected to earn 209 points this year, after putting up 192 last year.

Best Available

While La Liga's Cuban Jew is expected to be weak across five positions, DEF is definitely their worst unit and an area of need.

    • Carolina Defense
    • Rank 161, ADP 110
    • Jacksonville Defense
    • Rank 183, ADP 144
    • Baltimore Defense

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..."
