    DpO Draft Report Card

    A-
    Grade

    Led by a Quality Group of RBs, DpO Will Impose Its Will on Meager Opponents

    Draft Summary

    All that time spent doing fantasy football research instead of actual work wasn't a waste of time after all, as DpO is projected to finish in first place in FREAKS League with a record of 15-0-2 (2,140 points).

    With a draft like that, you might as well make it official. Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Keeper Summary

    DpO made use of all three of their keeper positions, but overlooked pass-catchers. Among their keepers, none were WRs. From an ADP perspective, their third-ranked keeper (Peyton Manning) is more valuable than a second-round draft choice. Overall, the three keepers on DpO are projected to be clearly more productive (by 15.2%) than the draft picks they replaced.

    Schedule

    DpO can chalk up Week 4 as a loss. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have the least difficult slate. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, DpO also has the easiest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Highlight Reel

      RB is the strongest position for DpO, but QB and K are also stronger than the league average at those positions.

    • Detroit Lions Fan?

      DpO is a believer in the hopes of the Detroit Lions this season, grabbing a couple of players on that team sooner than their ADPs might suggest.

    • Team of Champions

      DpO is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including LeSean McCoy, Peyton Manning, and Eddie Lacy.

    • You Snooze, You Lose

      While the rest of the league slept on Miles Austin, DpO pounced on him at pick No. 137.

    • Digging Deep

      Miles Austin is owned in only 3% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward DpO for their faith! Or not.

    Player Analysis

      • LeSean McCoy, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 1
      Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

      Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. McCoy is ranked sixth in the league with 1,626 all-purpose yards.

      • Peyton Manning, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 16
      Fantasy is Better Than Reality

      Even though he fell short in Super Bowl 48, Peyton Manning was more likely to be owned on a 2013 Yahoo! championship roster than any other QB.

      • Eddie Lacy, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 17
      The Alchemist

      DpO chose the RB most likely to turn a small gap into TD gold. Eddie Lacy is projected to lead NFL RBs in plays over 40 yards with 3.4 and TDs over 40 yards with 1.5.

      • Julius Thomas, TE
      • Round 4, Pick 32
      Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

      Despite being an above-average player at his position, Julius Thomas was the weakest value pick of the round.

      • Golden Tate, WR
      • Round 7, Pick 49
      That Just Happened

      Why can't I find Golden Tate on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round value."

    Best Available

    DpO has three positions where an upgrade could be beneficial, with DEF being the most immediate need.

      • Chicago Defanse
      • Rank 212, ADP 121
      • Buffalo Defanse
      • Rank 215, ADP 138
      • Indianapolis Defanse

    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..."
