Led by a Pair of Vikings, Chad's Choice Team Have a Roster Filled with Meh

Draft Summary

Chad's Choice Team are not a super team, but they could possibly reach the playoffs assuming a few things go their way. After picking No. 11 overall, the team is projected to land in 7th place in Souza & Weaver Fantasy Impact. Behind multiple Vikings in the early rounds (Dalvin Cook and Stefon Diggs), Chad's Choice Team are in store for a mark of 7-6 (2,031 points) with the current roster.

  • Nyheim Hines

Biggest Steal

What a nice late-round bargain for Chad's Choice Team, who selected Hines with the 11th pick in the 13th round, about two rounds later than his ADP of 126. Following a rookie season in which he rushed for 314 yards and 2 TDs and snagged 63 passes for 425 yards and 2 TDs, totaling 161 fantasy points, Hines is projected to score 216 fantasy points with the Colts. That makes him a valuable No. 2 RB for this squad.

  • Ronald Jones II

Going out on a Limb

We're going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you got distracted right before selecting Jones II at No. 110, about 17 picks earlier than his ADP of 127. Maybe you're onto something, though. Projected to score 73 fantasy points this season with the Buccaneers, he seems set to beat his rookie year when he accumulated 44 yards and 1 TD on 23 carries in 7 games, totaling 21 fantasy points. Based on projected points, Jones II will slot in as the No. 5 RB for Chad's Choice Team to begin the season.

Draft Notes

  • With only one kicker off the board, Chad's Choice Team saw a run and got in early, taking Greg Zuerlein in the 14th round. In the round that followed, five more kickers went off the board.

  • Chad's Choice Team face a tough challenge in Week 9 when they have four players on a bye (Matt Ryan, Michael Thomas, Greg Zuerlein, and New Orleans). Timothy's Team, your Week 9 opponent, won't be nearly as hamstrung with only two players (Devonta Freeman and Jared Cook) on a bye week.

  • For the first half of the season, Chad's Choice Team have one of the toughest schedules in Souza & Weaver Fantasy Impact based on projected records with an early-season strength of schedule that ranks as the 3rd-most difficult. Despite that, for the full season, Chad's Choice Team face a pretty fair schedule that ranks as the 4th hardest.

  • Chad's Choice Team filled all of their individual offensive positions before taking advantage of the WR/RB/TE flex position, drafting WR Sammy Watkins at No. 83 as the first flex player on the team.

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..."
