You know what, Jared McGahen's Team, maybe you should just hold off on pursuing your dreams for a while. Maybe just ask them where they're going and hook up with 'em later, when you have a team capable of winning. Jared McGahen's Team is projected to finish sixth in Assist Protect Defend League with a record of 5-9-0 (2,383 points). They obviously understand how important the running back position is in fantasy football. They used three of their first five picks on RBs Arian Foster (second round), Alfred Morris (fourth round), and Bishop Sankey (fifth round). Even so, they ended up with one of the worst RB duos in the league.
While Week 9 has the most players on bye for Jared McGahen's Team (seven), Week 10 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with having the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Jared McGahen's Team has the toughest first four games of the season.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Jared McGahen's Team might require waiver wire help in Week 10, as their No. 1- (Arian Foster), No. 2- (Alfred Morris) and No. 4-ranked (Shane Vereen) RBs will all be idle that week.
Jared McGahen's Team is stacked at TE, but RB isn't too shabby, either.
The Sleepy Trio
Jared McGahen's Team selected three late-round sleepers (Sammy Watkins, Johnny Manziel, and Jonathan Stewart).
A Dominating Duo

No Back-Up No Cry
Ignoring roster depth, Jared McGahen's Team chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
Is Nick Foles Religious?
With 390 projected points, Jared McGahen's Team will be hoping Foles is the answer to their prayers.
A Return to Huge Numbers
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 1, Pick 7
Sean Payton's return to the Saints' sideline seemed to work out for Jimmy Graham, who was owned on more championship rosters across Yahoo! than any other TE.
Does Arian Foster Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?
- Arian Foster, RB
- Round 2, Pick 10
Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. Foster is ranked 10th in the league with 1,606 all-purpose yards.

- Round 3, Pick 23

Earning His Keep

- Round 4, Pick 26
With 9 rushing TDs and 1,166 rushing yards, Alfred Morris is projected to finish ninth and fifth in the NFL in those categories, respectively.
Was Larry Fitzgerald the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 42?
- L. Fitzgerald, WR
- Round 6, Pick 42
Jared McGahen's Team apparently thinks so. The Cardinals' wideout is projected to get 166 points this year, nearly identical to his total last year.
With four subpar positions on Jared McGahen's Team, DEF and QB are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.

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.
