2021 FANTASY SPORTS ALLIANCE – DEFUNCT DYNASTY LEAGUE

LEAGUE OVERVIEW

A Fantasy Sports Alliance – Defunct Dynasty League (FSA-DDL) will consist of 12 teams per league. Each league will be filled on a first come first served basis. Meaning, the first 12 to pay their membership/entry fee will represent a league, and so on. FSA-DDLs will be themed and competition will take place between defunct professional football teams chosen by their owner. All players on a team’s roster will carry over from season to season. An entry fee will be collected from all coaches. The coaches will play for an annual payout and a progressive pot will be carried over each year and paid to the team that wins consecutive championships.

LEAGUE MANAGEMENT

FSA-DDL competition will take place on MyFantasyLeague (MFL).

TEAM OWNERSHIP

Each member will pay a $100 entry fee each season prior to the league renewal deadline on (1 March 2021).

DRAFT

GMs, in the second year of their Dynasty franchise (2021), will select rookies and free agents during a straight draft. A straight draft means the draft order will be the same for each round. The Rookie and Free Agent draft will last four rounds and will begin on 8 May 2021 at noon ET. The draft will be a long draft with each team getting 6 hours per pick. The clock will pause overnight from midnight ET until 6am ET when the clock resumes. Prior to the start of the Rookie and Free Agent draft, each team’s roster will be increased by four roster spots to 32 to accommodate the draft. Trading draft picks is allowed. See TRADES for more details.

The draft order for the Rookie and Free Agent draft will be determined as follows:

  • Picks 1-8 will be decided by regular season potential points among non-playoff teams. The picks will go in order of lowest potential points to the 8th lowest potential points. Potential Points are the amount of points a team would have scored each week if they had set a perfect lineup. This will keep teams from benching their star players in hopes of “tanking” and earning a better draft position.
  • Pick 9 will go to the 4th place finisher following the consolation game.  
  • Pick 10 will go to the 3rd place finisher following the consolation game. 
  • Pick 11 will go to the runner-up of the DDL Bowl.
  • Pick 12 will go to the DDL Bowl Champion.

ROSTER REQUIREMENTS

The maximum roster size is 28 players; except between the dates of 1 March (beginning of the season) and 1 September (rosters reduced to 28 to prepare for the upcoming season). Between these dates, roster limits are expanded to 32.

COMPETITION

  • DIVISIONS
    Each FSA-DDL will consist of 12 teams, which will be divided into three divisions of four teams each. These Divisions will be labeled West – Central – East. Teams will be placed into the division that corresponds with their defunct team’s location in relation to the other teams in the league.
  • SCHEDULING
    The regular season begins on Week 1 of the NFL season and concludes at the end of Week 14 of the NFL season. Each team will play their divisional opponents twice for a total of six games and each team outside their division once (eight games) for a total of 14 games. The Playoffs will consist of four teams; the three division winners and the highest scoring remaining team (not necessarily the fourth-place team). The semi-final round of the playoffs will take place during Week 15 of the NFL schedule and the DDL Bowl will take place during Week 16 of the NFL schedule. Also played during Week 16 of the NFL schedule will be consolation game between the two teams eliminated in the semi-final round for seasonal payout purposes.
  • ROSTER REQUIREMENTS
    All teams are comprised of 28 players (10 starters and 18 bench players), as follows:
    • 1 Quarterback
    • 2 Running Backs
    • 3 Wide Receivers
    • 1 Tight End
    • 1 Super Flex (QB, RB, WR, TE)
    • 2 Flex (RB, WR, TE)
    • 18 Bench Spots
  • SCORING
    • Passing
      .04 points for every yard passing (equals 1 point for every 25 yards)
      6 points for every passing touchdown
      2 points for every 2-point conversion
      -1 minus one point for every sack against
      -2 minus two points for every interception
      -2 minus two points for every lost fumble
    • Rushing
      .10 points for every yard rushing (equals 1 point for every 10 yards)
      .5 points for each rushing First Down
      6 points for every rushing touchdown
      2 points for every 2-point conversion
      -2 minus two points for every lost fumble
    • Receiving
      .10 points for every yard receiving (equals 1 point for every 10 yards)
      6 points for every receiving touchdown
      .5 point for each reception by QBs, RBs, and WRs
      1 point for each reception by TEs
      .5 points for each receiving First Down
      2 points for every 2-point conversion
      -2 minus two points for every lost fumble
  • TRADES
    Trading is allowed. Trading is allowed at the beginning of each season (1 March) until the trade deadline. The trade deadline will be the kickoff of Week 11 each season. Draft picks can be traded, but no more than one year into the future (i.e. in the year 2021, you can only trade picks for the 2021 and 2022 seasons). If you are trading a future first-round draft pick, you must pay the league fee ($100) for that future season.
  • WAIVER WIRE
    The FSA-DDL will utilize a Free Agent Acquisition Budget (FAAB) Blind-Bidding waiver system. Each owner begins the year with a $100 FAAB budget to place blind bids on waived players. This budget is for in-season and off-season waivers. This is ALL the budget you receive for the entire year. Left over budgets will carry over to the next season. To pick a player who is on waivers, a minimum bid of $1 must be made. The owner with the highest bid will acquire the player. If two or more owners bid equal amount on the same player, the earliest bid submitted will acquire the player. Waivers will run weekly on Wednesday (Time TBD) starting after the annual rookie and free agent draft. After each waiver claim period is complete, first-come-first-served (FCFS) players will be available for pick-up. All FCFS transactions are $0 and nothing will be deducted from a team’s FAAB balance. Rosters will freeze for all teams after Week 16 of the NFL Schedule. The blind-bidding waiver system continues during the playoffs in Weeks 14-16, even for teams who did not make the playoffs. No free agent pickups can be made between the end of Week 16 and the annual rookie and free agent draft. See the SCHEDULE OF LEAGUE OPERATIONS for more details.

FSA DYNASTY ALPHA DRAFT ANALYSIS

 Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3 | Round 4 | Round 5

Pick 1.01 – Patrick Mahomes (Birmingham Iron)

Kevyn: With the inaugural first overall pick, the Iron play it smart with Super Bowl MVP Mahomes. This is a safe pick with maximum value as the Mahomes looks poised for another playoff run. GRADE: A

Damien: With the first overall pick its can be easy to get distracted by all the playmakers at your disposal. It can be easy to overthink it, but Birmingham Iron stuck to their guns and took the smart safe pick with Mahomes. GRADE: A


Pick 1.02 – Christian McCaffrey (Salt Lake Stallions)

Kevyn: Salt Lake Stallions lock up their Swiss Army knife with the 2nd pick overall. CMC is coming off a 1000/1000 season and after a payday Salt Lake is in for a pay off with this value. GRADE: A

Damien: With the second pick of the draft, the only possible difficult decision that could of been debated here was decided for them when Mahomes was taken 1.01. CMC can do it all and is a slam dunk and closest to a sure thing as you can get in fantasy last year. GRADE: A


Pick 1.03 – Saquon Barkley (Columbus Panhandles)

Kevyn: Columbus adds RB Saquan Barkley with the 3rd overall pick. Barkley is a physical freak but with a new coaching regime in town, will this young talent still put the team on his back? GRADE: B

Damien: The Panhandle had to have the first real debate of the draft. Go QB RB or WR all positions were in play. They decided if Barkley can carry the Giants on his back why not Columbus. GRADE: A-


Pick 1.04 – Ezekiel Elliott (Atlanta Havoc)

Kevyn: With plenty of talent on the board, Atlanta makes a safe pick. Zeke provides great upside but lower ceiling at the 4th overall pick than others available. GRADE: B

Damien: Havoc sat at the 1.04 and took a very Jerry Jones type of approach with their pick. By simply going with their gut, over the draft board, they select Zeke. While no one questions this man’s talent, with who was left on the board, it left a lot to be desired. GRADE: C


Pick 1.05 – Michael Thomas (Memphis Maniax)

Kevyn: Memphis making great use of the best available strategy and selecting Michael Thomas. Slotted at #4 on my big board, Memphis makes the most of their first-round selection. GRADE: A

Damien: Five picks into the draft Memphis snags the number one wideout on the board. Michael Thomas is coming off his third consecutive year with at least 100 receptions and 1,200 yards. The Maniax are hoping to see him extend it to four with their franchise this season. GRADE: A


Pick 1.06 – Lamar Jackson (Northern Kentucky River Monsters)

Kevyn: The River Monsters on the move trading up to take their guy at 1.06.  Selecting Lamar Jackson is a huge win early on. I’m not sure how he lasted this long, but the River Monsters have now one of the most athletic players in the league as they look to build a team around him. GRADE: A

Damien: The River Mosters made a HUGE impact on the league by trading up to pick 1.06 from 1.11. With that pick, they took Lamar Smiley Face Jackson who one could say should have went much sooner. When you see value on the board, you have to take advantage of it and the River Monsters did just that. GRADE: A


Pick 1.07 – Derrick Henry (Boston Brawlers)

Kevyn: Boston Brawlers take a bruiser at 7th overall. Derick Henry put his team oh his back (and knees) last season. Boston looks to continue the downhill onslaught. While this is a bit of a reach pick with other value players left in the board. This is a safe pick overall for the next few years to come. GRADE: C

Damien: Brawlers decided with the 7th overall pick they wanted a piece of history by taking Derick Henry. Henry had an incredible run late last season as he ran for over 180 yards in three consecutive games; the first time in NFL history a RB as been able to pull that off. However, with so much value still on the board, this was a bit of a reach for me and hard to wrap my head around. GRADE: C


Pick 1.08 – DeAndre Hopkins (New Jersey Red Dogs)

Kevyn: Somebody threw the New Jersey Red Dogs a bone letting DeAndre Hopkins slip to 1.08 overall. With the second highest catch percentage in the league, the Red Dogs make an outstanding value grab. GRADE: A+

Damien: The Red Dogs benefit tremendously from seeing teams reach for players early on and watching DeAndre Hopkins fall into their lap at 1.08. They have got to be pretty happy. GRADE: A


Pick 1.09 – Dalvin Cook (Dayton Triangles)

Kevyn: Dayton Triangles take what is presumably their guy in Dalvin Cook at 1.09. With an injury history and more value on the board, this is a high-risk/high reward pick. GRADE: B-

Damien: Dayton was staring down a draft board with playmakers still left sitting there and decided Dalvin Cook was their man at 1.09. While I could definitely see other analysts give this pick an A, I had a few players higher with less risk involved as we all know Cook injury history. GRADE: B


Pick 1.10 – Alvin Kamara (Norfolk Neptunes)

Kevyn: Norfolk selects Alvin Kamara 10th overall to spearhead their back field. While having a down year compared to years prior, Kamara looks to excel in both the run and pass game for the Neptunes. GRADE: B+

Damien: This pick could be the steal of the draft, as the Neptunes watch Alvin Kamara fall all the way to pick 1.10. He was the 3rd best running back on my board. Neptunes GM had to be SLAMMING the submit button when it was their turn to pick. GRADE: A


Pick 1.11 – George Kittle (Las Vegas Outlaws)

Kevyn: Las Vegas gambles early by trading back in the 1st and gaining a 3rd round pick.  With only 3 TEs on my board slated higher than 5th round grades, this is solid pick with tremendous up-side. GRADE: B

Damien: I was torn whether I could give an A- to this pick. The Outlaws traded back from 1.06 where they saw the River Monsters take Lamar Jackson. I love adding extra early picks (they got an extra 3rd) but I would have rather had Jackson. We will have to wait and see who they take with that 3rd. With the 1.11 pick they took the first and best TE on the board - George Kittle. This man as changed the way we look at the position and there just aren’t that many valuable TEs to go around so taking him now is a smart move. GRADE: B


Pick 1.12 – Nick Chubb (Orlando Rage)

Kevyn: The Orlando Rage goes mad with their pick!  With the final pick of the first round, Nick Chubb is off the board. This is a classic high-risk/high-reward selection as Chubb looks to find his place in an evolving offensive. While there were safer bets on the board, Chubb will be one to keep an eye on. GRADE: C

Damien:  With the last pick of the first round, and back-to-back picks, the Rage GM waited patiently as they saw trades get made and other GM's reach for players they wanted, but it was finally their turn. With the 1.12 pick they took Cleveland's running back Nick Chubb. I feel Chubb is a terrific player and can do a lot with very little, but you have to take into account the organization has new Head Coach and offensive game plan.  It is hard to say what this team could be bring to the table in 2020. GRADE: B



 Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3 | Round 4 | Round 5

Pick 2.01 – Dak Prescott (Orlando Rage)

Kevyn: Orlando kicks off the second round selecting their franchise QB Dak Prescott. The more I look the more I like this pick. Dak now has more weapons around him in a young system. Look for big things with this pick. GRADE: B+

Damien: Orlando gets the opportunity to pick back to back and gives themselves the ability to really leap ahead of the competition. With the first pick of the second round they decided to snag their franchise QB Dak Prescott and makes him the third QB off the board. Dak has shown he has ability to throw for 5,000 yards and Jerry Jones just gave him another weapon to work with in Rookie CeeDee Lamb. This could be deemed a reach here but when you love a guy you gotta take him. GRADE: B


Pick 2.02 – Deshaun Watson (Northern Kentucky River Monsters)

Kevyn: The River Monsters make another splash as they select another QB in Deshaun Watson.  With plenty of value on the board and another QB on the roster, this is a bit of a head scratcher. Although a super flex move could prove smart, too many moves like this could be costly. But as they say, go big or go home. GRADE: C

Damien: Rivers Monsters already showed their willingness to be aggressive by trading up into the first round and selecting Lamar Jackson. You would think they would be happy with their QB position, but they made an even more aggressive decision to Select Deshaun Watson with pick 2.02. This strategy is bold, but in a Super Flex league it's just crazy enough to work. Hopefully the Hopkinsless Watson is still able to put up similar numbers as years past. GRADE: B


Pick 2.03 – Tyreek Hill (Norfolk Neptunes)

Damien: The Neptunes just saw two QBs go back-to-back and they could have easily kept that trend going, but decided it was time to cut it short and head in a different direction. They selected The Cheetah Tyreek Hill. Speed kills in today's NFL but you know what is even better than being fast? Being fast and having Patrick Mahomes throwing you the ball. GRADE: A


Pick 2.04 – Kyler Murray (Dayton Triangles)

Damien: While Neptunes decided against following the QB trend, the Triangles couldn’t resist the chance to draft Kyle Murray with their pick. Murray quietly had a top 10 fantasy season at the position and now gets the chance to throw to one of the best wideouts in the game - DeAndre Hopkins. The sky is the limit this season and Dayton is hoping Murray pays off. GRADE: A


Pick 2.05 – Josh Jacobs (New Jersey Red Dogs)

Damien: I can feel the anger with this pick as I could imagine how badly the Red Dogs wanted to pair their first-round pick, Hopkins, with his QB Murray. With that off the table, they were able to set their eyes on second year RB Josh Jacobs who some say got robbed of the ROTY title last season. When it comes to value, I feel there was better option still on the board, but it's hard to pass on young a work horse RB in this league as long as he can stay on the field. GRADE: B


Pick 2.06 – Travis Kelce (Boston Brawlers)

Damien: With the Brawlers on the clock, they decided it was time to change things up by taking the second TE in the draft - Travis Kelce. Kelce has now gone 4 consecutive seasons with at least 80 receptions and 1,000 yards receiving, but he’s going to be 31 and history shows TEs over the age of 30 and not named Tony Gonzales find themselves on the wrong end of the spectrum. Then again, most TEs are not like Kelce and they sure don't have Super MVP Patrick Mahomes throwing them the ball. GRADE: B


Pick 2.07 – Russell Wilson (Las Vegas Outlaws)

Damien: The Outlaws took the next best available QB on my board here with Russell Wilson. I don’t hate this pick; I can’t discount wanting to grab one of the top QBs here, but sometimes it's best to grab the value when it's there and I promise you it's there. GRADE: B


Pick 2.08 – Davante Adams (Memphis Maniax)

Damien: If I was buying stock for any franchise through the first two rounds, I'm putting all my money on Maniax. Somehow, Devante Adams made his way past 18 other teams to land with Memphis and creates the scariest WR duo in the league by pairing Adams and Thomas. This is what nightmares are made of when your facing against these guys. GRADE: A


Pick 2.09 – Josh Allen (Atlanta Havoc)

Damien: When you see a run of any position, it can really force your hand as an owner. You need stay calm, cool, and collected during these times and trust your draft board. Havoc decided to continue the run of QBs in Round 2 by selecting Josh Allen. The Bills have certainly tried to give Allen  more weapons by trading for WR Stefon Diggs, which gives Allen a true #1 target. When the dust settles, and the room clears, you have to be happy with your selection and that's all that matters, but theres much more to be desired on the board at this point. GRADE: C


Pick 2.10 – Clyde Edwards-Helaire (Columbus Panhandles)

Damien: Columbus must have been looking off their Rookie Draft board and not their Start Up dynasty draft board because they decided to take Rookie CEH with the 2.10 pick. While CEH has all the potential and is injected into the best possible situation, by taking him now, you are banking on the best possible outcome to indeed happen and that's a hard hole to climb out of if he falls short. GRADE: C


Pick 2.11 – Julio Jones (Salt Lake Stallions)

Damien: The Stallions gain a little veteran experience in Round 2 by adding WR Julio Jones. This guy has had an incredible career. He’s had at least 1,400 yards the past 6 seasons (1,393 last season, but close enough). The only true knock on Jones is his age. He just turned 31 and the drop could be coming; however, he showed last season he still capable of leading a team to a (fantasy) championship. GRADE: B


Pick 2.12 – Chris Godwin (Birmingham Iron)

Damien: Birmingham didn't have to think twice with their first pick by taking Mahomes first overall. However, they might have wanted to take a little bit more time with this one. They selected Chris Godwin with the last pick in the second round. I love the player but given the situation and players still on the board, I feel this was a bit of a reach. With Brady coming to town, it will certainly help Tampa Bay win more games, but I'm not exactly sure it’s going to bring much more value to the skill position. It’s going to be hard to guess where all the targets are going to go. GRADE: C


 Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3 | Round 4 | Round 5

Pick 3.01 – Joe Mixon (Orlando Rage)

Damien: Orlando opens the 3rd round with the best pick of their draft so far by taking Joe Mixon.  He was the best available option on the board.  He gone as high as pick 8 in some drafts and landing him at 25 is solid value. GRADE: A+


Pick 3.02 – DJ Moore (Las Vegas Outlaws)

Damien: With a lot of the RB value gone at this point in the draft, I feel the pick of DJ Moore was a smart pick. He gets a new QB throwing him the ball and a new offensive system that should look to expose defenses. GRADE: B+


Pick 3.03 – Aaron Jones (Norfolk Neptunes)

Damien: Neptunes selecting Aaron Jones in the third round for me is a head scratcher. He was already being looked at as a RB who will be taking a step back after a crazy 18 touchdowns last season. Then we watch as the Packers decided to sign a Derrick Henry type pounded at RB in the second round of the NFL draft. He will certainly look to steal some touchdowns and goaline work. GRADE: D+


Pick 3.04 – Mike Evans (Dayton Triangles)

Damien: Dayton is going with a well round approach for their team by going RB QB the first two rounds. They decided to Take WR Mike Evan's with their 3rd pick. For a lot of the same reasons I love/hate Godwin in this offense, it will be hard to predict who will get the targets. Evans is a big target and it will be hard for Brady not to see him down field. Gives me a very Brady/Moss feeling type of connection and we all know how well that work out. GRADE: B+


Pick 3.05 – Jonathan Taylor (New Jersey Red Dogs)

Damien: The Red Dogs looked over the landscape of players still available, stared value in the face at QB and WR, and decided they wanted to take a chance with rookie RB Johnathan Taylor. He was talked about being the top rookie RB this year. While fumbling tends to be issue (he had 18 in college), the Colts are not the ideal landing spot. Some are saying hes the 1A in that backfield already. GRADE: B-


Pick 3.06 – Aaron Rodgers (Boston Brawlers)

Damien: The Brawlers decided they wanted a future Hall of Famer on their roster to help pull their team together and Aaron Rodgers brings just that. It was unfortunate to see the Packers not give him any help in the draft, but if anyone is able to do more with less it is this man. He had 54% of WR routes run by undrafted players last year and still managed 4,000 yards, 26 TDs, and only 4 int. GRADE: B


Pick 3.07 – Amari Cooper (Las Vegas Outlaws)

Damien: Outlaws find their way back into the 3rd round due to their trade with the River Monsters earlier in the draft. They certainly didn't waste the opportunity by selecting WR Amari Cooper. He just got paid by the Cowboys and proved to be one of Dak’s favorite targets. The addition of CeeDee Lamb could steal some targets but with Dak can throw over 5,000 yards. He’s showed there is plenty of love to go around. GRADE: A


Pick 3.08 – JuJu Smith-Schuster (Memphis Maniax)

Damien: Memphis has had one of the better drafts so far. The value just kept falling to them and they didn't over think it. However, I think they started thinking too much by selecting another WR JuJu. I don’t hate the player, but with two stud wideouts already on the roster, one could wonder if checking off a different position would have been a better move. GRADE: B-


Pick 3.09 – Kenny Golladay (Atlanta Havoc)

Damien: The Havoc are pulling this team back together after they reached at QB last round. They recovered some by selecting WR Golladay here. I love the player. He managed 11 touchdowns and just over 1,100 on just 65 receptions and this was from a less then productive offense from the Lions. GRADE: A-


Pick 3.10 – Matt Ryan (Columbus Panhandles)

Damien: Another veteran QB Slides off the board here as Columbus picks Matt Ryan. While there is nothing wrong with Matt, there really isn’t anything to get real excited about either. He’s the definition of a safe pick. You know what you are going to get every week. He won’t lose you games, but he’s not going win games either. GRADE: B-


Pick 3.11 – Jimmy Garoppolo (Salt Lake Stallions)

Damien: The Stallions have had a very successful draft so far, but they hit a speed bump after electing to take QB Jimmy G in the 3rd. He’s on a run first run often offense. Even though he did manage to take the 49ers to the Super Bowl, it was on the back of that defense and rushing attack. There were multiple options I would have liked over this one. GRADE: D


Pick 3.12 – D’Andre Swift (Birmingham Iron)

Damien: The Iron decided they wanted a piece of the rookie action and selected D'Andre Swift. Swift was talked about as being the top RB to have pre-draft, but landing spots matter and Swift’s was less than ideal with the Lions. There is a path for Swift to take over the back field, but its going to take time or an Injury to see it happen. GRADE: B-

 


 Round 1Round 2 | Round 3 | Round 4 | Round 5

Pick 4.01 – Todd Gurley (Birmingham Iron)

Damien: The Iron finished the 3rd round by adding Rookie RB Swift. They decided they wanted to pair their youth with a little veteran experience by selecting Tod Gurley. He finds himself with a new team this year and hopefully found himself some new knees along the way. We all know what Gurley is capable of, but will he ever be able to get back to the top of his game? Time will tell. GRADE: B


Pick 4.02 – Zach Ertz (Salt Lake Stallions)

Damien: The Stallions are going for a very well-rounded approach. They have already Selected a QB, RB, and WR in the first three rounds. With their 4th round pick they followed the theme by selecting TE Zach Ertz. Ertz had a bit of a down year by his own comparison. He fell just short of 1,000 receiving yards, but his down year for most Tight Ends would be a career year so he is still a winner. GRADE: B+


Pick 4.03 – AJ Brown (Columbus Panhandles)

Damien: Panhandles owner had a guy in mind with this pick and nobody in the building was going to change his mind. AJ Brown comes flying off the board. I don’t hate the player. He had a great rookie year - going over 1,000 yards on just 52 catches, that's just over 20 yards per reception. What I don’t like is the timing. There were still multiple players I'd much rather have at this point. GRADE: C+


Pick 4.04 – Austin Ekeler (Atlanta Havoc)

Damien: The Havoc’s nerves likely got the better of them the first few picks but they are coming back strong with their last two selections by adding Golladay and now Austin Ekeler. Ekeler is being tagged as the bigger winner coming out of the NFL. The Chargers let Melvin Gordon walk and didn’t signed any big-name free agents or rookies. It looks to be the Ekeler show once again; this time with a friendly top tier rookie QB taking over. GRADE: A


Pick 4.05 – Carson Wentz (Memphis Maniax)

Damien: Maniax GM is having a heck of a draft so far and after taking three wideouts with their first three picks they decided it was time to grab a QB to throw to them by taking Carson Wentz. I did like a few other QBs still on the board here. The Eagles did finally bring in a little talent for Wentz in the draft, but in the same breath, also gave him a little competition. It should be interesting to see how everything unfolds during the season. Wentz isn't the healthiest player at times. GRADE: B+


Pick 4.06 – Miles Sanders (Las Vegas Outlaws)

Damien: This pick is the under the radar slam dunk the Outlaws needed. I love this pick. Miles showed tons of promise last season as a rookie but was part of a crowded backfield. Well there is a lot of breathing room now and hopefully he’ll able to make the most of it. GRADE: A


Pick 4.07 – Keenan Allen (Boston Brawlers)

Damien: Brawlers bring in Keenan Allen with their 4th round pick. Allen has been a very hard player to project. He can pop off any game, but sometimes leaves a lot to be desired.  Now he gets a new rookie QB to try and get into a rhythm with and that might take some time to develop. GRADE: B-


Pick 4.08 – Odell Beckham (New Jersey Red Dogs)

Damien: You can say what you want about OBJ  but when you can land a player with his skill set and his ability to dominate his position in the 4th round you have to be thrilled. I'm sure the Red Dogs are pumped to be able to add OBJ to their wideouts. GRADE: A


Pick 4.09 – Mark Andrews (Dayton Triangles)

Damien: Dayton looked at the board and noticed the huge drop of in production coming at the TE position. Smartly, he decided to grab the last top tier TE on the board by selecting Mark Andrews. I don’t blame them. TEs turn into a mine field quickly so it's nice to not have to worry about the position. GRADE: B


Pick 4.10 – Kenyan Drake (Norfolk Neptunes)

Damien: Neptunes takes a RB here who has been able to turn his career around after being traded to the Cardinals last season. Drake was able to do enough that he convinced the Cardinals that the once great David Johnson just wasn't worth keeping around. It helps they added DeAndre Hopkins in the process to help keep defenses honest. GRADE: A-


Pick 4.11 – Joe Burrow (Dayton Triangles)

Damien: Dayton found a way to trade back up into the 4th round and took the first rookie QB off the board in Joe Burrow. I love this pick! I love the aggressiveness, and if you are going to make a move, it's nice doing it for a guy you know will be a star for years to come (we hope). GRADE: A+


Pick 4.12 – Courtland Sutton (Orlando Rage)

Damien: With the last pick in the 4th round, the Rage didn’t disappoint by selecting one of the hottest young wideouts last season. He managed just over 1,100 yards on 72 catch from three different QBs last season. Drew Lock will be the guy throwing him the ball, and if he learns how to not overthrow him, things should be alright. With Denver adding a couple of rookie WRs, it doesn’t change my mind. If anything, it should help Sutton find more space against opposing defenses. GRADE: A


 Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3 | Round 4 | Round 5

Pick 5.01 – Baker Mayfield (Orlando Rage)

Damien: Rage starts out the fifth round by selecting Baker Mayfield. They add him to their QB room that already has second round pick, Dak Prescott, and becomes one of the younger group so far in the Alpha League. The only thing I don’t like about this pick is seeing the Rage invest more into the Browns offense.  They already have Nick Chubb leading their RB core. GRADE: B-


Pick 5.02 – JK Dobbins (Northern Kentucky River Monsters)

Damien: The River Monster got huge value with this pick. He was one of the highest players on my board and I had him slated to go a round or two sooner. GRADE: A


Pick 5.03 – DK Metcalf (Norfolk Neptunes)

Damien: The Neptunes might have let DJ Metcalf’s looks get into their head by selecting him with their 5th round pick. He was boom or bust most of his rookie season and has shown to be touchdown dependent. He is still the second best wideout on a team that wants to run the ball a lot. GRADE: C+


Pick 5.04 – Cam Akers (New Jersey Red Dogs)

Damien: The Red Dogs make Cam Akers the second rookie RB taken this round. Akers will have every opportunity to succeed in the Rams offense this year. However, with a crowded back field, and plenty of safer options still on the board, this is a risk I hope they don’t come to regret. GRADE: C


Pick 5.05 – DJ Chark (Northern Kentucky River Monsters)

Damien: The River Monsters have been working there way up and down the draft board as they find themselves picking in the 5th round again. With their second pick they chose Jaguars standout WR DJ Chalk. This man came out of nowhere last season and was a gem for the first half of the season. He turned into Minshew’s favorite target. He cooled off towards the end of the season though. From Week 11 and on, he only managed to have one game over 50 yards and over 5 catches. He showed enough for the Jaguars to let there was promising star WR Marqise Lee go. GRADE: B-


Pick 5.06 – Le’Veon Bell (Boston Brawlers)

Damien: The Brawlers decided it was time to add another RB to their team by taking Le'Veon Bell. We all know what this man can do with a football in his hands,  it’s just been awhile since we have actually seen him do it. Adam Gase might have come to realize that Bell isn’t going away. Hopefully he starts to feed him the ball more this season and give him a chance to play to his potential. GRADE: B


Pick 5.07 – Copper Kupp (Las Vegas Outlaws)

Damien: The Outlaws chose to add another WR in Cooper Kupp with their 5th round pick. I love this pick! Kupp showed tons of potential as the Rams’ #3 WR and now that Cooks has been traded to the Texans, his 72 targets last season will have to go somewhere. GRADE: B+


Pick 5.08 – Leonard Fournette (Memphis Maniax)

Damien: Memphis finally realized he had to fill the RB position. He come away with value by selecting Leonard Fournette. There are plenty of question marks surrounding Fournette and the Jaguars relationship, but they didn't add any real competition to take anything away from him. It's not a flashy pick, but when you get one of very few bell cow type RBs in the 5th round, Matt Krull has to be happy. GRADE: A-


Pick 5.09 – Tua Tagovailoa (Atlanta Havoc)

Damien: Havoc added to their QB room, which already consists of Josh Allen. Tua has all the potential in the world. A serious injury derailed Tua at the end of his college career, but he still showed enough to be a top 5 pick in the NFL draft by the Dolphins. GRADE: B-


Pick 5.10 – Daniel Jones (Columbus Panhandles)

Damien: Back-to-back QBs come off the board. First Tua and now Daniel Jones, which Columbus pairs with Matt Ryan. Daniel jones showed promise last season and glimpses of big play ability. He’s on a team that wants to run the ball a lot with Barkley, but he’s young and has tons of room to grow. GRADE: C+


Pick 5.11 – Tom Brady (Salt Lake Stallions)

Damien: Make it three QBs off the board in a row in the 5th round as the Stallions take Tom Brady. Brady finds himself with a new team after so much success with the Patriots, and he finds himself surrounded by arguably the most talented offense he has played with. He gives them a small window of 1-2 years of playability, but he could pay off huge. GRADE: B


Pick 5.12 – Adam Thielen (Birmingham Iron)

Damien: Birmingham decided it was time to buck the trend at QB and head in another direction by selecting Adam Thielen. Thielen needs to find a way to stay on the field, because we know when he does, he can be one of the best in the game. The Vikings sent Diggs packing and spent a first round pick on Jefferson. Thielen should find it easy to increase his target share if he can stay healthy. GRADE: B-
