Despite a Set of Beast RBs, Forte inch Ditka Isn't Anything to Get Excited About

Draft Summary

Look, Forte inch Ditka, not everyone achieves the "above" in "above average," it has to be earned. Just be happy as an average GM, and maybe with a little hard work and a better draft next season, your team will reach that milestone. Forte inch Ditka didn't achieve their playoff aspirations with this draft, but they'll have to do some extra work to get there. For now, they're projected to finish in eighth-place in The Rubber Band aka La Liga League at 4-9-0 (2,295 points). With five RBs on the roster, Forte inch Ditka has a quality backfield; their RBs are projected to average 168 points this season, close to the league average of 166. They finished the draft with the lowest-scoring group of WRs in the league, as they added A.J. Green, Tyreek Hill, Willie Snead, and Breshad Perriman.

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 Forte inch Ditka (four), Week 6 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have a softer-than-average schedule. Forte inch Ditka will need to be playing their best as the playoffs approach, as the last four games of their season are projected to be more difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • Quarterback Controversy?

    Forte inch Ditka may have to rely on a Ouija board each week. Their top-drafted (Russell Wilson) and second-drafted (Cam Newton) QBs have fairly similar seasonal point projections.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Forte inch Ditka chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • The Bargain Whisperer

    Forte inch Ditka was hunting for deals throughout the draft, snapping up five steals in the first 10 rounds (including Houston, Willie Snead, and Tyreek Hill).

  • Digging Deep

    Rex Burkhead is owned in only 4% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward Forte inch Ditka for their faith! Or not.

Player Analysis

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 11
    Forte inch Ditka 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.

    • Jay Ajayi, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

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

    • Travis Kelce, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 38
    Forte inch Ditka Hops Aboard the Travis Train

    Though KC's offense attempted the eighth-fewest passes in the league, only two tight ends (Rudolph and Olsen) saw more targets than Kelce last season.

    • Tyreek Hill, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 59
    Rethinking That One

    While drafted 59th overall, Tyreek Hill isn't projected among the NFL's top-50 in either receiving TDs (89th with 4.6) or receiving yards (72nd with 761).

    • Russell Wilson, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 62
    Tuck It And Run

    Wilson is projected to deliver 436 rushing yards, and ranks third among QBs in that category.

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..."
