Despite Reaching for a Few Early-Rounders, Jukebox Junkies Is a Force to be Reckoned With

Draft Summary

Learning to handle success will be the biggest obstacle for Jukebox Junkies, as they figure to be at the top of the standings all season. They are expected to go 10-2-1 (1,506 points) and finish in first-place in Gatliff Hillbillies League. They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Calvin Johnson (second round), Alshon Jeffery (third round), and Sammy Watkins (fourth round). These players will be heavily relied upon by Jukebox Junkies, as they are one of the best WR combos in the league.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Jukebox Junkies should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why there's only one word for thesaurus. That's still time better spent than checking fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a harder-than-average slate. In addition to having the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Jukebox Junkies has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • A Good Problem to Have

    Jukebox Junkies will have some nail-biting decisions to make each week at RB, with a small projected points difference between their second- (Ameer Abdullah), third- (Todd Gurley), and fourth-ranked (Joseph Randle) RBs.

  • On Autopilot

    Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for Jukebox Junkies, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Sammy Watkins) and fourth-ranked (Brandon LaFell) wideouts.

  • You're Only as Strong as Your Weakest Link

    The strongest projected unit on Jukebox Junkies is K; unfortunately, it's rated below the league-average projection for that group.

  • Sky's the Limit

    With five players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Jukebox Junkies hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Risky Business

    It appears that Jukebox Junkies likes to gamble, as they took chances on seven volatile selections.

  • Super Sleepers

    At picks No. 101 and 117, Jukebox Junkies snagged a couple of late-round fliers with upside in Ameer Abdullah and Carson Palmer.

Player Analysis

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Insanely Efficient

    Despite attempting 32.5 passes per game (just 22nd in the league), Rodgers threw for the seventh-most yards (4,381) and third-most TDs (38) last season. A whopping 33 QBs tossed more interceptions than Rodgers' five.

    • Calvin Johnson, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 12
    The Power of Persuasion

    Now would be a reasonable time for Jukebox Junkies to encourage the Gatliff Hillbillies League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Calvin Johnson and his 89 projected catches (ranked eighth in the NFL).

    • Alshon Jeffery, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 21
    173 Reasons for Jukebox Junkies to Appreciate Alshon Jeffery

    Jeffery ranks eighth in the Gatliff Hillbillies League among WRs with 173 projected fantasy points.

    • Sammy Watkins, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 28
    Super Sammy

    Watkins was just 18 yards shy from being the fourth rookie WR to notch 1,000 receiving yards last season (Beckham, Evans, Benjamin).

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 37
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Gatliff Hillbillies League overlooked a gem, and Jukebox Junkies made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Adrian Peterson.

Best Available

How We Grade

Draft grades are based strictly on teams' draft performances. This is calculated by counting the number of fantasy points teams are projected to score over the course of the season using their optimal line-ups. The grades do not take schedule into account. Because of bye weeks and other variables it is possible to earn a high grade yet be projected to finish in the middle of the pack. The opposite is also true. Bottom line: Fantasy Football is like the real game. You can draft the greatest talent in the world but you still need to manage your team every week to get the most out of that talent. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
