Bust A Kaep Draft Report Card

Led by an Elite Group of RBs, Bust A Kaep Has a Legit Squad

Draft Summary

Bust A Kaep parlayed a solid draft slot (fourth overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 7-7-0 (1,478 points), they're projected to finish sixth in Usual Suspects League. They went all-in on running backs early, using their first three selections to grab Matt Forte (4th overall), Giovani Bernard (21st), and Zac Stacy (28th). These players will be heavily relied upon by Bust A Kaep, as they are one of the best groups of RBs in the league.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

Bust A Kaep should use Week 10 to consider life's great mysteries, like why is there only one word for thesaurus? That's still better time spent than checking fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the least difficult slates. Bust A Kaep has the opportunity to close with a bang, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average. However, the opening stretch of first four games is expected to be tougher than average, so a slow start is possible.

Draft Notes

  • Big D

    Bust A Kaep elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    Bust A Kaep has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Matt Forte and Zac Stacy) 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 Jordan Matthews, Bust A Kaep pounced on him at pick No. 165.

  • Bargain Shopper

    With three steals in the first 10 rounds (St. Louis, Cam Newton, and Wes Welker), Bust A Kaep made some shrewd moves.

  • Bust A Kaep Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Ryan Fitzpatrick at pick 172 was just a bit of a stretch. Fitzpatrick is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Matt Forte, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Does Matt Forte Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

    Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. Forte is ranked fourth in the league with 1,698 all-purpose yards.

    • G. Bernard, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 21
    Traditionalist

    Bust A Kaep stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, nabbing Matt Forte and Giovani Bernard right off the bat.

    • Zac Stacy, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 28
    Zac Stacy Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. Bust A Kaep should be in decent shape if Stacy gets his 294 projected touches this year.

    • Cam Newton, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 69
    Not Afraid to Scramble

    With 592 projected rushing yards (ranking second among QBs), Cam Newton has multiple ways to bring in points.

    • Julian Edelman, WR
    • Round 7, Pick 76
    Was Julian Edelman the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 76?

    Bust A Kaep apparently thinks so. The Patriots' wideout is projected to have 142 points this year, almost the same as his total from last year.

Best Available

With three below-average positions on Bust A Kaep, QB and DEF are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

    • Joe Flacco
    • Rank 172, ADP 124
    • Sam Bradford
    • Rank 178, ADP 124
    • Baltimore 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..."
