Although They Stretched for Some Early Picks, FAH-Q-ERS FC Is a Team to Keep an Eye On

Draft Summary

Picking 10th, FAH-Q-ERS FC put together a team that is expected to finish the season in a favorable spot. There's something to be said for a GM who flipped a bottom of the barrel pick into a projected fourth-place finish in L.O. Unextraordinary Gentlemen League (10-4-0, 1,871 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Cam Newton (11th overall), RB Devonta Freeman (10th), WR Brandon Marshall (31st), and TE Delanie Walker (50th) within the first five rounds. They also landed the worst group of WRs in the league, as they have Marshall, Michael Floyd, Allen Hurns, and Steve Smith Sr. on their team.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

While Week 8 has the most players on bye for FAH-Q-ERS FC (four), Week 9 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have an easier-than-average schedule. Along with having the fifth-easiest overall schedule, FAH-Q-ERS FC also has the easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Shouldering the Burden

    FAH-Q-ERS FC has four above-average positions with QB and RB projected to lead the way.

  • Drink Plenty of Milk

    With an average of 7.9 years of NFL experience, FAH-Q-ERS FC has the greatest chance of losing a player to osteoporosis.

  • It's a Marathon, Not a Sprint

    FAH-Q-ERS FC didn't exactly wrap up the draft on a high note, ending up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • Team of Champions

    FAH-Q-ERS FC assembled a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, five of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including Devonta Freeman, Cam Newton, and Doug Martin.

  • Heavenly Handcuff

    Pittsburgh's back-up made the most of his opportunity to start last year, and when the dust had settled on the 2015 season, only one RB (Devonta Freeman) appeared on more first-place rosters than DeAngelo.

  • Digging Deep

    Anquan Boldin is owned in only 8% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward FAH-Q-ERS FC for their faith! Or not.

Player Analysis

    • D. Freeman, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    First-Place Falcon

    Devonta Freeman was rostered by more championship teams than any other player in the Yahoo! universe last year, and FAH-Q-ERS FC is hoping for a repeat in 2016.

    • Cam Newton, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 11
    Did FAH-Q-ERS FC Just Dab?

    • Doug Martin, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 30
    Feed Thy Beast

    Doug Martin will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish sixth in the league with 306 touches.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 31
    Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, FAH-Q-ERS FC got a steal in the fourth round, when they selected Brandon Marshall (31st overall pick vs. ADP of 15.5).

    • Delanie Walker, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 50
    The Titan to Target

    Walker led all TEs in both targets (133) and receptions (94) last year, and received double-digit targets in seven of the 15 games in which he played.

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..."
