Douglas P's Team Draft Report Card


Despite an Exciting Set of WRs, Douglas P's Team Embarrassed Themselves

Draft Summary

Jerry Rice once stated, "I feel like I'm the best, but you're not going to get me to say that." Well guess what, Douglas P's Team, he isn't going to say that about your team either. Because that would be a lie. Douglas P's Team is expected to finish ninth in Yahoo Public 1034899 League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,474 points). They won't have any issues with depth at WR, using their first three picks to load up, drafting Odell Beckham Jr., Demaryius Thomas, and DeAndre Hopkins. These players will be heavily relied upon by Douglas P's Team, as they are the best group of WRs in the league.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.

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.
