Badass Boss figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the 10th overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 9-5-0 (1,932 points). With that record, they will likely finish fourth in TLC Staff League. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Drew Brees (50th overall), RBs Todd Gurley (11th) and Jamaal Charles (30th), and WRs DeAndre Hopkins (10th) and Keenan Allen (31st). They also have one of the best groups of RBs in the league, as they added Gurley, Charles, and Duke Johnson Jr.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Badass Boss has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Badass Boss has the opportunity to close with a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Carrying the Load
Badass Boss has four above-average positions with RB and WR projected to lead the way.
A Dominating Pair
Badass Boss has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (DeAndre Hopkins and Todd Gurley) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
Targeting the Texan
- D. Hopkins, WR
- Round 1, Pick 10
Hopkins was one of just three wideouts (along with Julio Jones and Antonio Brown) to get at least 190 targets last year, and only Devonta Freeman and Tom Brady appeared more often on championship rosters than Houston's stud WR.
No RB by Committee Here
- Todd Gurley, RB
- Round 2, Pick 11
Look up "workhorse back" in the dictionary and there is a picture of Todd Gurley. Badass Boss should be in good shape if he reaches his league-leading 345 projected touches this year.
An All-Purpose Stat-Stuffer
- Jamaal Charles, RB
- Round 3, Pick 30
Jamaal Charles is projected to finish ninth in the league with 1,471 total yards (1,126 rushing, 345 receiving).
258 Excuses to Cheer for Keenan Allen
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 4, Pick 31
Allen ranks 10th in the TLC Staff League among wideouts with 258 projected fantasy points.
Like Marino in His Prime
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 5, Pick 50
Drew Brees is projected to lead the NFL in both passing yards (4,832) and passing TDs (31.8).
If Badass Boss wants to upgrade, DEF and TE are areas they could go after first.
- Minnesota Defense
- Rank 179, ADP 112
- Oakland Defense
- Rank 184, ADP 122
- Jared Cook
- Rank 125, ADP 132
- Virgil Green
- Rank 145, ADP 134

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.
