3FL Notes: 2019 Draft Analysis

Ten of our twelve teams were represented during the online draft on Thursday night. Here is an analysis of the results (in draft order):

1. Misfits, Inc.: Saquon Barkley was the obvious #1 choice no matter who was behind the controls for the first pick. And if you let your team autodraft you just might end up with the Best Draft™award. Grade: B (Yahoo! Grade: B)

2. Stiletto Stompers: Having Alvin Kamara and Patrick Mahomes is a good start, but picking the right WR from this corps each week is going to be difficult. Grade: B (Yahoo! Grade: C+)

3. Baltimorons: There is no Worst Draft™ award, but if there was Yahoo! would have given it to Coach Drew this year. I don't think things are that bad. McCaffrey, Brown and Goff? Come on. Grade: C (Yahoo! Grade: D)

4. Dumbbums: Last year's runner up could not stop picking Steelers. Not the worst idea, but it's almost to the level where they need a name change. Grade: C (Yahoo! Grade: C)

5. Predacons: After years of terrible draft grades, the Preds finally ended up at the top of the list. Will it change their postseason luck? That might depend on how the RB2 spot works itself out. Grade: B+ (Yahoo! Grade: A-)

6. Marauders: Coach Hoss' team is, like, fine. Absolutely nothing stands out here. But that's not a bad thing. Grade: C (Yahoo! Grade: C)

7. the HAW: Things went a little different than usual for the CAPS this draft. A WR first? A K in the ninth round?? Two TEs??? Maybe they're just mixing it up. Grade: C (Yahoo! Grade: C)

8. Yuengling Brewers: The Brew Crew was present at the draft again, this time while at the beach! And the team looks pretty good. With sleepers and everything. Grade: B- (Yahoo! Grade: B)

9. Lightning: Our defending champion didn't pick a RB until the third round and it shows. But everything else looks ok. As long as nobody gets hurt. Grade: B (Yahoo! Grade: B)

10. Spiked Vipers: Autodraft took a chance on 'Zeke in round one and SpiVi needs to hope that he actually makes it onto the field. The rookie starting QB is pretty bold too. Grade: B- (Yahoo! Grade: B)

11. Renegades: From the worst draft grade last year to a tie for the best this year? This team does look pretty tough, and it (of course) includes Aaron Rodgers. Grade: B+ (Yahoo! Grade: A-)

12. Phys. Ed. Phenoms: The WRs are top notch and a couple of these RBs are bound to work out (even if it takes ten weeks). The biggest question is if Baker Mayfield lives up to the hype. Grade: B (Yahoo! Grade: B-)

The Comm-nosticator makes his first predictions soon. Stay tuned.
