Ch 13 Installments received the last pick in the draft and used it to build a juggernaut. Expect the rest of the league to spend the season looking up at Ch 13 Installments in the standings, as they are expected to finish first in JD To The Rescue League with a record of 10-3-0 (1,855 points). With this kind of investment in the WR position by Ch 13 Installments, they can only hope this trio resembles "The Greatest Show on Turf." They used their first three picks to draft Odell Beckham Jr. in the first round (12th overall), Demaryius Thomas in the second (13th), and Jordan Matthews in the third (36th). They put together the bottom group of RBs in the league, as they added Lamar Miller, Chris Ivory, Duke Johnson Jr., and David Cobb.
Week 5 might require some artful managing from Ch 13 Installments. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with the sixth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Ch 13 Installments.
Ch 13 Installments may have to rely on a Ouija board each week. Their top-drafted QB (Tony Romo) and second-drafted QB (Ryan Tannehill) have fairly similar seasonal point projections.
The Best Player Plays
Ch 13 Installments is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 4.6 years of NFL experience.
Close to the Vest
Ch 13 Installments was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 13 picks.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Ch 13 Installments will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 8, as their only TE (Julius Thomas) and only DEF (Buffalo) will both be idle that week.
Good to Have Balance, Right?
While the bottom half of the Ch 13 Installments roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 3), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).
A Dominating Duo
Ch 13 Installments has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Odell Beckham Jr. and Demaryius Thomas) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
The Definition of Explosive
- O. Beckham Jr., WR
- Round 1, Pick 12
Following New York's Bye in Week 8, Beckham torched the NFL for 81 catches, 1,199 yards and nine touchdowns (on 115 total targets).
The Man at Mile-High
- D. Thomas, WR
- Round 2, Pick 13
With Eric Decker out of the mix, Thomas received a league-high 184 targets last season. Expect more from Peyton's favorite weapon in 2015.
Better Lucky Than Good?
- Lamar Miller, RB
- Round 4, Pick 37
The rest of JD To The Rescue League overlooked a gem, and Ch 13 Installments made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Lamar Miller.
Apparently ADP is Overrated
- Chris Ivory, RB
- Round 5, Pick 60
With their fifth-round pick, Ch 13 Installments pulled the trigger. They took Chris Ivory at pick number 60 despite an ADP of just 98 across all Yahoo! leagues.
A Super Duper Signal-Caller
- Tony Romo, QB
- Round 6, Pick 61
Tony Romo is projected to rack up 395 points this year, enough to rank sixth among all QBs.
Ch 13 Installments is projected to have a pair of subpar positions (RB and TE), but RB is clearly their worst unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.
- Bishop Sankey
- Rank 129, ADP 124
- David Johnson
- Rank 146, ADP 126
- Jonas Gray
- Rank 151, ADP 120
- Ronnie Hillman
- Rank 156, ADP 119

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.
