Led by a Pair of Patriots, Nick Ahmed Will be a Tough Team

Draft Summary

A skillful draft performance by the GM of Nick Ahmed turned the No. 8 overall pick into a projected 2nd-place finish. After picking up multiple Patriots in the early rounds (Julian Edelman and James White), Nick Ahmed are predicted to finish 11-2 (2,096 points) in Ahmed & Bradley Fantasy Impact.

  • Michael Gallup

Biggest Steal

Nick Ahmed netted a great late-round value when they selected Gallup at No. 176, about five rounds later than his ADP of 126. Coming off a rookie season in which he recorded 33 catches for 507 yards and 2 TDs, totaling 98 fantasy points, Gallup is projected to score 163 fantasy points with the Cowboys. That makes him the No. 5 WR for this squad.

  • James White

Reach Pick

Either you know something we don't or you got a little carried away with the selection of White at No. 56, about 25 picks earlier than his ADP of 81. Projected to score 227 fantasy points this season with the Patriots, he will need to outperform expectations to improve upon last year when he rushed for 425 yards and 5 TDs and snagged 87 passes for 751 yards and 7 TDs, totaling 277 fantasy points. White will slot in as the No. 4 RB for Nick Ahmed, according to projected points.

Draft Notes

  • With four tight ends already off the board, Nick Ahmed foresaw a run coming and got in early, taking Hunter Henry with the No. 65 pick. In the round that followed, four more tight ends came off the board.

  • Nick Ahmed face a tough task in Week 4 when they have four players on a bye (Jimmy Garoppolo, Le'Veon Bell, Dante Pettis, and Matt Breida). Your Week 4 opponent, AshBash, won't be quite as hamstrung with only two players (Robby Anderson and Marquise Goodwin) on a bye week.

  • Nick Ahmed have drawn one of the lightest schedules in Ahmed & Bradley Fantasy Impact this season according to projected records with a strength of schedule that ranks as the 3rd easiest.

  • Even with unfilled positions at QB and TE in the 5th round, Nick Ahmed chose RB James White with the 56th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position at the expense of a position of greater need.

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..."
