Indiana Julio Jones Draft Report Card


Led by a Stellar WR Corps, T-Rollin Will Make Opponents Regret Playing Fantasy Football

Draft Summary

T-Rollin took advantage of a favorable draft slot and built the kind of roster that makes opponents "go out of town" or "spend time with the kids" when they see your team on the schedule. T-Rollin is projected to finish first in MissingElderlyBlueOldsmobile League at 13-1-0 (2,741 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Julio Jones (second round), Mike Evans (third round), and Brandin Cooks (fifth round). They built the worst QB combo in the league, as they added Tony Romo and Tom Brady.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.


While Week 11 has the most players on bye for T-Rollin (four), Week 6 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a harder-than-average schedule. Corresponding with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, T-Rollin also has the most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    T-Rollin is stacked at WR, but RB isn't too shabby, either.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With seven "low-risk" players among their 16 picks, T-Rollin is looking for dependable help.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the T-Rollin roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 8).

  • Full Control Early On

    T-Rollin began things with a bang, nabbing the most projected points in the league during the draft's first half.

  • Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in MissingElderlyBlueOldsmobile League, T-Rollin may have found a gem in Jarvis Landry. Including his 1,224 projected return yards, he ranks first in the league with 2,152 all-purpose yards.

  • Mr. Mendoza

    Knile Davis is owned in only 4% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) T-Rollin has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 333 touches, Adrian Peterson is projected to rank second in the NFL in that category. How touching, T-Rollin.

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 19
    T-Rollin Says 'Hello' to Julio

    Jones was the lone NFL player to notch 30 catches of at least 20 yards last season, and only Odell Beckham, Jr. averaged more receiving yards per game in 2014.

    • Mike Evans, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 22
    On a Scale of 1 to America

    How free will Mike Evans get in the secondary this year? He's projected to reel in 1,253 receiving yards.

    • Tony Romo, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 39
    Thanks for Clearing That Up, Terry

    Terry Bradshaw once said “I may be dumb, but I'm not stupid.” T-Rollin hopes that drafting Tony Romo and his 32.7 projected passing TDs was a choice that Bradshaw wouldn't make.

    • Joseph Randle, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 59
    Was the 59th Pick the Right Time for Joseph Randle?

    T-Rollin apparently believes it is. The Cowboys' running back is projected to put up 276 points this year, after only netting 85 last year.

Best Available

T-Rollin has four positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including QB and TE, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Colin Kaepernick
    • Rank 118, ADP 123
    • Jameis Winston
    • Rank 129, ADP 122
    • Austin Seferian-Jenkins
    • Rank 124, ADP 134
    • Tyler Eifert
    • Rank 130, ADP 131

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..."
