Draft Summary

R's Remarkable Team figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the second overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 8-6-0 (2,399 points). With that record, they will likely finish third in Assist Protect Defend League. They loaded up on ball carriers early, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs LeSean McCoy (first round), C.J. Spiller (fourth round), and Doug Martin (fifth round). They put together one of the top QB pairs in the league, as they added Drew Brees and Andrew Luck.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

R's Remarkable Team might as well plan a vacation for Week 10. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. Along with having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, R's Remarkable Team has the league's easiest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Asset Allocation

    QB is the strongest position for R's Remarkable Team, though DEF and WR aren't too shabby either.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the R's Remarkable Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 7).

  • Full Control Early On

    R's Remarkable Team began things with a bang, nabbing the most projected points in the league during the draft's first half.

  • A Dominating Duo

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    R's Remarkable Team nabbed a sleeper in Jeremy Hill with pick No. 194.

  • Bargain Shopper

    With three steals in the first 16 rounds (Kansas City, Adam Vinatieri, and Andrew Luck), R's Remarkable Team made some shrewd moves.

Player Analysis

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    I Got a Fever, and the Only Prescription is More Cowbell

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 3, Pick 18
    Like a Prancing Unicorn

    Drew Brees is a fantasy dream. He's projected to finish second in the NFL in both passing TDs (37.9) and passing yards (5,277).

    • C.J. Spiller, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 31
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    • Doug Martin, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 34
    Haters Gonna Hate

    The rest of Assist Protect Defend League overlooked a gem, and R's Remarkable Team made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Doug Martin.

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.
