A masterful draft performance by the GM of Timothy's Team turned the No. 8 overall pick into a projected 3rd-place finish. The team is particularly strong at running back, as Ezekiel Elliott and Devonta Freeman are slated to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. Timothy's Team are predicted to finish 9-4 (2,093 points) in Souza & Weaver Fantasy Impact.
- Mike Davis
Timothy's Team scored a nice late-round value in choosing Davis at No. 185, about five rounds later than his ADP of 127. Coming off a season in which he ran for 514 yards and 4 TDs and hauled in 34 passes for 214 yards and 1 TD, totaling 137 fantasy points, Davis is projected to score 171 fantasy points with the Bears. That makes him a valuable No. 4 RB for this squad.
- Carson Wentz
Going out on a Limb
Are you friends with Denzel Washington? Because you must have had an "Inside Man" telling you to draft Wentz in the 5th round, about two rounds earlier than his ADP of 86. Granted, maybe you're onto something? Projected to score 339 fantasy points this season with the Eagles, he looks set to surpass last year when he threw for 3,074 yards and 21 TDs with 7 interceptions in 11 games to earn 215 fantasy points. Based on projections, Wentz will slot in as the No. 1 QB for Timothy's Team to begin the season.
Timothy's Team initiated a run on the kicker position, taking Justin Tucker with the 8th pick of the 13th round as the first K off the draft board. Three more kickers went off the board in the subsequent round.
Week 6 will present a tough task for Timothy's Team, as they have four players on a bye (T.Y. Hilton, Allen Robinson II, Mike Davis, and Chicago). Luckily, your Week 6 opponent, Raymond's Crazy Team, will be confronting a similar quandary with three players (Tarik Cohen, Devin Funchess, and Buffalo) on a bye.
Going off projections, Timothy's Team have a straightforward path in Souza & Weaver Fantasy Impact this season with a strength of schedule rated as the easiest. But don't get complacent. Even the lightest schedules can present issues for owners who aren't diligent.
In spite of an unfilled position at TE in the 6th round, Timothy's Team chose WR Allen Robinson II at No. 65, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a position of higher 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.
