2018 Season Recap
Scoring more than 84 points more than any other QB Mahomes
became the only true difference maker at his position.
Setting records both in the NFL and in fantasy, Saquon is a
generational talent that won’t be available again in rookie drafts
any time soon.
Coach of The Year
Return Of The Mack only had 2 players in the top 5 at their
position. That didn’t stop him from bringing home a title in year 2.
Owner of The Year
The owner who has increased his projected scoring output by
over 49.6% in just one year is the only deserving candidate for our
Owner of The Year Award.
POSITIONAL TOP 5’S
QB Patrick Matt Ryan Ben Andrew Luck Drew Brees
RB Christian Todd Gurley Saquon Alvin Kamara Ezekiel Elliot
WR Devante Antonio DeAndre Michael Adam Thielen
Adams Brown Hopkins Thomas
TE Travis Kelce Zach Ertz George Kittle Eric Ebron Jared Cook

11 Bholzberg year if all goes their way.
12 MattHovis Always a contender but not yet a champion. This squad has had a
great offseason adding a solid WR and having players beneﬁt from
PhatDad1963 superstars leaving them to a massive target share.
Team Helgeson33 Last years Owner of The Year has made huge strides. The only reason
they aren’t in the top 3 teams on this list is the unknown roles of
players like Pettis and Penny. With the addition of a key asset or two
they could be a champion this year.
Stuck in the middle this team of aging superstars might be making its
ﬁnal attempt at a title before hitting the full rebuild button.
In a complete reverse of the team just ahead the future is bright. With
a handful of young studs this team may only be 1 or 2 key players
away from being one of the top 5 teams in the league.
With a young talented core this team could be 1 or 2 seasons away
from its ﬁrst shot at a title.
With a couple of potential future superstars this team is on the right
track but still has a handful of spots to ﬁll before they crack into
Once thought to be a potential dynasty in the making with a ﬁrst year
title, this team has become exactly what their favorite NFL team has.
Suspended, old, and injured. The rebuild has begun.
This team may have started a rebuild 2 years too early. Currently
sitting with a slew of RB 3’s and a few less WR 3/4’s this will not be
A team that has been the bottom feeder of the league thus far has
ﬁnally been bought by a new owner. A real Kawhi Leonard (Silent But
deadly) type this owner has a few interesting pieces and a slew of
draft picks that can set him up for a much brighter future
Draft Picks: 1.05, 1.10,3.07, 3.11
Key Returning Justin’s team should have won each of
Players: the past two years. Why haven’t they?
Great question. If this team can ﬁnd a way
— ALVIN KAMARA to stay healthy and the owner can make
— DEANDRE HOPKINS the right coaching decisions, they may
— MICHAEL THOMAS have an opportunity for a league ﬁrst
undefeated season. Hopefully it won’t be
— DEVANTE ADAMS of the patriots variety for Justin’s Sake.
— NONE — QB
— OVERALL DEPTH
RETURN OF THE MACK
Draft Picks: 1.01, 1.06, 2.02, 2.04
Key Returning Marco may be the reigning champ, but he
Players: has one critical weakness, BOREDOM. His
— EZEKIEL ELLIOT afﬁnity for trading and then retreading
— ODELL BECKHAM then trading back and forth have left him
— PATRICK MAHOMES
— AMARI COOPER with a much weaker team...this year.
Once set up for a back to back run with
little competition, this team now will have
to have everything go his way to win
now. Still the future remains brighter than
most for RETURN OF THE MACK.
— WR — QB
Depth — YOUTH
THE DREAM TEAM
Draft Picks: 1.03
Key Returning Joe’s Squad looks very different from a
Players: year ago. Trading Todd Gurley confused
most, but it turned out to be potentially
— SAQUON BARKLEY
— MIKE EVANS the smartest individual move of the
— JOE MIXON offseason. He also brought in a lot of WR
— SAMMY WATKINS talent that has deﬁnitely changed the
strengths of his team for the future but it
may be exactly what he needed to make
the jump this year into title town.
— YOUNG QB’S
— SAQUON BARKLEY
— WR DEPTH
— Roster Depth
We Have Good JuJu
Draft Picks: 2.05, 2.12, 3.05
Key Returning Torin’s team is locked in to make another
Players: solid run. If there is anything that has
— JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER been a huge boost to his teams value its
— KEENAN ALLEN the departure of Antonio Brown and Odell
— DESHAUN WATSON Beckham from their prospective teams.
With a few good rolls and maybe a hit in
this years draft he has a chance to be
hoisting the trophy this year.
— AARON JONES STRENGTHS:
— Bench Depth
Draft Picks: 1.04, 1.11, 3.08
Key Returning Sam not only was the Owner of The Year
Players: but he also had the team with the most
— ANTONIO BROWN players who out performed their
— MELVIN GORDON projections. He is on track to be the ﬁrst
— KERRYON JOHNSON of the new crop of owners to win a title
and he is showing that he has a built a
— ZACH ERTZ team that is here for good. With a few
key additions Sam is a popular dark
horse pick to win it all this year.
— QB DEPTH
— Top End WR
Draft Picks: 2.10
Key Returning Spencer’s team was a popular sleeper last
Players: year with a core of elite talent.
— JULIO JONES Unfortunately health was not on his side
— DAVID JOHNSON and now he not only has to battle injury
— DEVONTA FREEMAN
prone players but also Father Time is
— T.Y. HILTON coming with a vengeance. It’s not
impossible but a title may be hard to
come by this year. If I was a betting man I
would say this could be the beginning of
a rebuild that could change who comes
out on top this year.
Draft Picks: 3.06
Key Returning Cody’s team although underachieving
Players: last year has one of the brightest futures
— BAKER MAYFIELD in the league if a couple of the many
— CHRISTIAN MCAFFREY young players he has can take the next
— ADAM THIELEN step.
Draft Picks: 2.08, 3.01, 3.09
Key Returning Holzberg may be the bane of my
Players: existence, but his team will soon be
trouble for most of the league if he
— TODD GURLEY continues to have his young players take
— STEFON DIGGS the step into stardom. If Todd Gurley can
— GEORGE KITTLE still be a stud with one knee he could be
— KENNY GOLLADAY the beginning of something special with
this team. But judging by his judgement
to room with Justin next year I am
concerned that he won’t start the right
squad to get him a title.
— Young Players — YOUNG WR
to Succeed — TE
— Roster — POTENTIALLY RB
Draft Picks: 1.07, 2.01, 3.02,
Key Returning Hovis wins the title for most irritating
Players: trade partner. He also has a young team
that has some real talent. If he can gain
— CALVIN RIDLEY some star level talent and ﬁnd a way to
— NICK CHUBB keep what he has his team may be on the
right track. His future picks seem to be
— KAREEM HUNT helping him to achieve that if all goes
— TAJ BOYD
— YOUNG TALENT
— POTENTIALLY RB
— Young Players
— Star Player
Draft Picks: 1.02, 1.09
Key Returning Oh how the mighty have fallen. From 1st
Players: year darling to this years home for the
elderly. Tim has found himself in full
— A.J. GREEN rebuild mode and even though he has a
— TRAVIS KELCE
— MARLON MACK decently talented team most of his talent
is set to expire soon or is too busy getting
into legal trouble to ever step foot on the
ﬁeld. Classic Chiefs...
— RB DEPTH
— Young Players
— Future Draft
Draft Picks: 1.08, 1.12, 2.03,
2.11, 3.03, 3. 10, 3.12
Key Returning The old man has gotten into much better
Players: shape. Too bad his team can’t say the
same thing. He hit the rebuild button a
— CURTIS SAMUEL
— AARON RODGERS little early and still somehow found a way
— MITCH TRUBISKY to sell low on assets like Devante Adams.
— JERRICK MCKINNON Yet here we are. Even though he is doing
his best Chicago bulls form of managing
his way to the middle he does have an
opportunity to capitalize on a very busy
draft. Then again he could just draft more
Doug McDermott’s leaving us to see him
here next year once again.
— Young Players
Draft Picks: 2.06, 2.07, 2.09
Key Returning The newest owner to the league! We are
Players: excited to have Corey jump in and start
the turn around for whatever it is that
— SAM DARNOLD
— CHRIS CARSON Noah and Rob thought they were
— CHRIS GODWIN doing...spoiler the answer is nothing.
— SAM DARNOLD Corey has his work ahead of him but he
has a lot of picks over the next couple of
years and some key young talent that
could turn the tide sooner than we think.
NEEDS: — LOTS OF FUTURE DRAFT
— Young Players CAPITAL
— Draft Capital
