100%WhoopAss Draft Report Card


After Some Early Gambles, 100%WhoopAss Has No Idea How to Draft a Winning Team

Draft Summary

It's not everyday you see this type of draft performance. 100%WhoopAss took the second overall pick and turned it into what experts would describe as a "mediocre, if not disappointing," draft. They are projected to finish with a record of 3-10-0, good enough for a "book-a-weekend-getaway-during-the-playoffs," 10th, in JD To The Rescue League. They wanted to make sure they had plenty of wideout options, picking Davante Adams (third round), Jeremy Maclin (fifth round), Jarvis Landry (sixth round), and Eric Decker (seventh round) with four of their first seven selections. They landed one of the top QB pairs in the league, as they added Peyton Manning and Philip Rivers.

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


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, 100%WhoopAss has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the hardest slates. In addition to having the second-most taxing overall schedule, 100%WhoopAss also has the league's second-toughest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Aging Stars

    The top half of the roster (from a projected points perspective) is relatively old (ranked No. 1 in the league with an average of 8.3 years of NFL experience), whereas the bottom half is fairly young (ranked No. 12 with 3.8 years).

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    100%WhoopAss has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Peyton Manning and Jeremy Maclin) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, 100%WhoopAss chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • Insider Trading?

    Andre Williams is owned in only 3% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) 100%WhoopAss has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • Marshawn Lynch, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 313 touches, Marshawn Lynch is projected to rank fourth in the NFL in that category. How touching, 100%WhoopAss.

    • Peyton Manning, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 23
    Like a Prancing Unicorn

    Peyton Manning is a fantasy dream. He's predicted to finish second in the NFL in passing TDs and fourth in passing yards.

    • Davante Adams, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 26
    Taking a Chance

    With their third-round pick, 100%WhoopAss threw caution to the wind. They took Davante Adams at pick number 26 despite an ADP of 103.1 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Ameer Abdullah, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 47
    A Choice That Wasn't Exactly Data-Driven

    According to projections, Ameer Abdullah will fall outside of the NFL top-20 in both rushing TDs (44th with 3.4) and yards (36th with 614). Seems like 100%WhoopAss just went with their gut on this one.

    • Jeremy Maclin, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 50
    Jumpin' For Jeremy

    Across all Yahoo! leagues, only two WRs (Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders) appeared more often on first-place rosters than Maclin last season.

Best Available

100%WhoopAss has a couple positions they may look to upgrade (TE and RB), but TE is the area they'll want to focus their attention first.

    • Austin Seferian-Jenkins
    • Rank 126, ADP 134
    • Jordan Reed
    • Rank 133, ADP 136
    • Josh Hill
    • Rank 147, ADP 130
    • Ladarius Green

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..."
