DMcDuke's Coach had a poor draft in the recent 2009 FantasySharks Hammerhead Shark League 3 draft. Their DMcDuke franchise came away feeling dejected about their bottom grade in the league based on analysis by MyFantasyLeague.com.
DMcDuke made their best pick of the draft in round 3, selecting Tom Brady with the 30th pick of the draft, as compared to the 18th spot he should have been selected in, according to ADP rankings. "He can take this team to the Promised Land," DMcDuke coach said.
DMcDuke has the dubious distinction of making the worst pick of the entire draft, selecting Frank Gore in round 1 with the 6th pick of the draft, long before the 11th spot he should have been selected in, according to ADP rankings. "I know some are thinking that he will be this year's Ryan Leaf," DMcDuke coach said.
Starting in week 5, DMcDuke won't be able to submit a full lineup, due to having 1 defensive team on bye.
After such a pathetic draft grade, DMcDuke is motivated to prove to the league tha
their picks will overachieve and bring home the trophy.
I like this analysis much better:
We think you're looking good at quarterback and running back, and tight end is a plus for this team as well. Your squad is therefore easy for us to like despite a bit of weakness at the receiver position. But as weaknesses go, this is one is survivable. It's usually relatively easy to find fill-in guys on a weekly basis until a better player emerges during the season. As long as you stay on top of things inseason, you should be the league favorite or very close to it.
Players we particularly like on this team include Tom Brady, Frank Gore, Kevin Faulk, Ronnie Brown, Anthony Gonzalez, Devin Hester, Fred Taylor, Kyle Orton, Justin Gage, the Bears defense, and Nate Kaeding. We have all these guys ranked ahead of where they are typically being drafted.
* With great inseason management, we think you have about a 80 percent chance of making the playoffs.
* With good inseason management, we think you have about a 65 percent chance of making the playoffs.
* With average inseason management, we think you have a 52 percent chance of making the playoffs.
In any event, we wish you the best of luck. Here's hoping all your weeks are like week 16 of 2005:
Santana Moss vs. NYG: 160 receiving yards, 3 TD
Torry Holt vs. SF: 163 receiving yards, 1 TD
Frank Gore vs. STL: 68 combined yards, 2 TD
Fred Taylor vs. HOU: 112 combined yards, 1 TD
