Behind an Elite Backfield, Liza's Legit Team Have a Shot at Winning the League

Draft Summary

After receiving a positive draft slot (No. 5 overall), Liza's Legit Team had an impressive performance. The team is notably deep at the running back position, as Austin Ekeler and Saquon Barkley are expected to combine for the 2nd-highest point total of all starting RB groups in the league. Liza's Legit Team are predicted to finish 2nd in Yahoo Public 987595 with a mark of 11-4 (1,938 points).

  • Kareem Hunt

Biggest Steal

What a late-round value for Liza's Legit Team, who selected Hunt at No. 116, about three rounds later than his ADP of 90. After a season in which he rushed for 386 yards and 5 TDs and hauled in 22 passes for 174 yards in 8 games, totaling 99 fantasy points, Hunt is projected to score 165 fantasy points with the Browns. That makes him a valuable No. 4 RB for this squad.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson

Regression Candidate

There were 15 players drafted by Liza's Legit Team, and Patterson seems poised to regress the most from last year among the players on the offensive side of the ball. After a season in which he rushed for 618 yards and 6 TDs and caught 52 balls for 548 yards and 5 TDs, totaling 209 fantasy points, Patterson is projected to score 157 fantasy points with the Falcons, a 25% reduction. That makes him the No. 5 RB for this squad.

Draft Notes

  • The early bird gets the worm. You got out in front of your opponents at tight end, drafting Travis Kelce (No. 16 overall) as the first TE off the board. You were more patient at wide receiver, becoming the last manager in the league to draft a WR with the selection of Jaylen Waddle (No. 56 overall).

  • Week 9 could bring on a case of the Bye Week Blues for Liza's Legit Team, as they have five players on a bye (Saquon Barkley, Eli Mitchell, Amari Cooper, Kareem Hunt, and Pittsburgh). Brent's Magnificent Team, your Week 9 opponent, won't be quite as limited with only two players (Melvin Gordon III and Pat Freiermuth) getting the week off.

  • Liza's Legit Team have drawn one of the best schedules in Yahoo Public 987595 this season according to projections with a strength of schedule that ranks as the 2nd easiest.

  • In spite of open slots at QB and WR in the 4th round, Liza's Legit Team selected RB Eli Mitchell with the 36th pick, filling the WR/RB/TE flex position instead of a higher leverage position. They were the third squad to make their first flex pick.

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..."
