Led by a Quality Group of RBs, Badass Boss Is a Team to Watch Out For

Draft Summary

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.

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


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.

Draft Notes

  • 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.

Player Analysis

    • D. Hopkins, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    Targeting the Texan

    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.

    • Todd Gurley, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 11
    No RB by Committee Here

    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.

    • Jamaal Charles, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 30
    An All-Purpose Stat-Stuffer

    Jamaal Charles is projected to finish ninth in the league with 1,471 total yards (1,126 rushing, 345 receiving).

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 31
    258 Excuses to Cheer for Keenan Allen

    Allen ranks 10th in the TLC Staff League among wideouts with 258 projected fantasy points.

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 50
    Like Marino in His Prime

    Drew Brees is projected to lead the NFL in both passing yards (4,832) and passing TDs (31.8).

Best Available

If Badass Boss wants to upgrade, DEF and TE are areas they could go after first.

    • Minnesota Defense
    • Rank 179, ADP 112

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..."
