Coinciding with Some Early-Round Reaches, Cantstandya Should Have Paid for Expert Advice

Draft Summary

Jerry Rice once stated, "I feel like I'm the best, but you're not going to get me to say that." Well guess what, Cantstandya, he isn't going to say that about your team either. Because that would be a lie. Cantstandya is expected to finish eighth in FREAKS League with a record of 0-16-1 (1,896 points).

Brutal draft. Still, you should nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame. That way, your players will have to live up to the pressure.

Keeper Summary

Cantstandya made use of all three of their keeper spots. Their top-ranked retained players from an ADP perspective were: Adrian Peterson (3.1 ADP), Randall Cobb (32.2 ADP), and Wes Welker (39.2 ADP). From an ADP perspective, their second-ranked keeper (Randall Cobb) is less valuable than a third-round draft choice. Overall, the three keepers on Cantstandya are projected to be slightly less productive (by 7.2%) than the draft picks they replaced.

Schedule

Week 10 is not looking like a fun one for fantasy football. Cantstandya should look into the joys of scrapbooking, or bird-watching, or just keep Cantstandya away from the TV. It won't be pretty. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the most challenging schedules. Along with the second-most taxing overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Cantstandya.

Draft Notes

  • A Talented Trio

    Cantstandya has three above-average positions on their roster (RB, DEF, and K).

  • Next Year, Just Show Up On Time

    The coach of Cantstandya must have arrived late to the draft party. After picking up the fewest projected points in the league over the draft's first half, they accumulated the most during the second half.

  • Officially Mediocre

    While the bottom half of the Cantstandya roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 8).

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

    Cantstandya knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up

    Cantstandya got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • Better Late Than Never

    Cantstandya finished on a high note, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Fajitas?

    Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Peterson is projected to rank fifth in the league with 1,641 all-purpose yards.

    • Randall Cobb, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 11
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

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

    • Reggie Bush, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 38
    It Was a Learning Experience

    Hey, remember that time Cantstandya took Reggie Bush WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Bush was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • Roddy White, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 43
    Was the 43rd Pick the Right Time for Roddy White?

    Cantstandya apparently believes it is. The Falcons' wide receiver is projected to put up 149 points this year, after only netting 89 last year.

    • Ray Rice, RB
    • Round 7, Pick 54
    Trigger Happy

    With their seventh-round pick, Cantstandya pulled the trigger. They drafted Ray Rice at pick number 54 despite an ADP of just 100 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Best Available

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..."
