Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, J-Caddy's Has No Idea How to Draft a Winning Team

Draft Summary

Congratulations, J-Caddy's has earned a participation award. Because that's just about all they did in this draft, participate. This delightful roster (for the opposition) is projected to finish 10th in Better Than That Other League with a record of 3-10-0 (2,545 points). With this kind of investment in the WR position by J-Caddy's, they can only hope this trio resembles "The Greatest Show on Turf." They used their first three picks to draft Calvin Johnson in the first round (8th overall), Brandon Marshall in the second (17th), and DeSean Jackson in the third (32nd). J-Caddy's will rely heavily on this group, as they are the best group of WRs in the league.

Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

Schedule

J-Caddy's should do pretty much anything other than watch football during Week 9. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for J-Caddy's.

Draft Notes

  • San Diego Chargers Fan?

    J-Caddy's is a believer in the hopes of the San Diego Chargers this year, grabbing three players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.

  • WR or Bust

    WR is the only above-average position group for J-Caddy's.

  • A Dominating Duo

    J-Caddy's has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Calvin Johnson and DeSean Jackson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Andrew Hawkins, J-Caddy's pounced on him at pick No. 152.

  • Take One Play Off and He Burns You

    Kenny Stills is a classic deep-ball weapon, ranking fifth among NFL WRs in percentage of receptions over 40 yards (6.2%).

  • J-Caddy's Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing James Starks at pick 176 was just a bit of a stretch. Starks is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Calvin Johnson, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 8
    Meeting His Expectations

    Often the only WR taken in the first round in 2013, Megatron lived up to the billing and was owned on more playoff teams across Yahoo! than any other wideout.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    The Power of Persuasion

    Now would be a reasonable time for J-Caddy's to encourage the Better Than That Other League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Brandon Marshall and his 93 projected catches (ranked fifth in the NFL).

    • M. Jones-Drew, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 56
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Maurice Jones-Drew, the weakest value of the round.

    • Ladarius Green, TE
    • Round 7, Pick 80
    Was Ladarius Green Worth it at Pick No. 80?

    J-Caddy's sure hopes so. The Chargers' tight end is projected to put up 188 points this year, after only netting 114 last year.

Best Available

While J-Caddy's is expected to be weak across three positions, RB is definitely their weakest unit and an area of need.

    • Jeremy Hill
    • Rank 95, ADP 123
    • Andre Williams
    • Rank 114, ADP 122
    • Chris Ivory
    • Rank 122, ADP 124
    • James White
    • Rank 127, ADP 125

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..."
