You know that feeling when you finish a draft and can’t find any mistakes? Everything just falls perfectly in line with your plan and you wouldn’t change anything. Today we’ll be taking a look at one such perfect draft in the DRAFT Best Ball format.

The “Perfect” Draft From Pick No. 9 in DRAFT Best Ball

Round 1

Nick Chubb, RB, Cleveland Browns

My favorite roster construction that has proven to dominate best ball drafts is the 1-Elite RB approach (often referred to as Modified Zero RB).

DRAFT Win Rates: RB1 < Round 3, RB2 > Round 6

I just drafted Chubb with the 14th pick in my seasonal Superflex league and would’ve taken him as early as the ninth pick, as I am here.

It’s concerning that 75.9% of Chubb’s fantasy points came on the ground compared to just 24.1% through the air. However, he still had 5.8 receiving fantasy points over expectation (reFPOE), along with his 34.9 rushing fantasy points over expectation (ruFPOE). Blair Andrews has shown that RBs with positive rookie year efficiency leads to more opportunity and fantasy scoring in the following year, and that the efficiency also persists.

Matt Jones’ projections show Chubb can be the RB5. The RotoViz Projection Machine projects Chubb to score 10 rushing touchdowns, which is tied for first with two RBs consistently being drafted in the top-three picks.

Round 2

JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
