Led by an Impressive Backfield, Thomas's Terrific Team Will be a Tough Team

Draft Summary

What's the sign of a wonderful GM? Turning a bottom-half draft slot into top-half results. Such was the case with Thomas's Terrific Team, which flipped its No. 9 overall pick into a projected 5th-place finish in Yahoo Public 987595. With Saquon Barkley and Nick Chubb expected to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league, Thomas's Terrific Team are predicted to put up a total of 2,056 points based on the current roster, which would result in a 9-6 record.

  • Kenny Golladay

Biggest Steal

What a great late-round bargain for Thomas's Terrific Team, who picked up Golladay with the 2nd pick of the 10th round, about three rounds later than his ADP of 72. Following a season in which he hauled in 20 balls for 338 yards and 2 TDs in 5 games, totaling 56 fantasy points, Golladay is projected to score 202 fantasy points with the Giants. That makes him a valuable No. 3 WR for this squad.

  • Ryan Tannehill

Stretch Pick

Are you willing to reveal your source? We'd love to hear what prompted the selection of Tannehill at No. 69, about two rounds earlier than his ADP of 90. Projected to score 354 fantasy points this season with the Titans, he'll be looking to match last year when he threw for 3,819 yards and 33 TDs with 7 INTs, posting 351 fantasy points. Tannehill will slot in as the No. 1 QB for Thomas's Terrific Team, based on projected points.

Draft Notes

  • With four tight ends already off the board, Thomas's Terrific Team saw a run on the horizon and got in early, taking T.J. Hockenson with the 2nd pick in the 6th round. Three more tight ends were snatched up in the following round.

  • Fashionably late? With the selection of QB Ryan Tannehill (No. 69 overall), you became the last manager in the league to draft a quarterback.

  • For the first half of the season, Thomas's Terrific Team have one of the most challenging schedules in Yahoo Public 987595 based on projections with an early-season strength of schedule rated as the 3rd-most difficult. In spite of that, for the full season, Thomas's Terrific Team face a pretty fair path that ranks as the 5th toughest.

  • In spite of open slots at QB, WR, and TE in the 3rd round, Thomas's Terrific Team drafted RB Najee Harris at No. 29, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a more important position. They were the third squad to fill a flex position.

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..."
