    Loaded With Patriots, Belichick Yourself! Has Great Shot at Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. Belichick Yourself! put together a quality team and is projected to finish in second-place in League of URMAGERD! League at 8-5-0 (21,310 points).

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

    Keeper Summary

    Belichick Yourself! used all nine of their keeper spots, stockpiling WRs. They held on to three WRs among their top-five keepers-- Keenan Allen (29.7 ADP), Wes Welker (45.8 ADP), and DeSean Jackson (47.4 ADP). On average, their top five keepers are marginally more valuable (by 6%) than the draft picks that they replaced.

    Schedule

    Week 10 might require some artful managing from Belichick Yourself!. They have 10 players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a tougher-than-average slate. Corresponding with the third-most grueling overall schedule, Belichick Yourself! also has the league's second-toughest first four games and second-most difficult last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Belichick or Bust

      The fantasy hopes of Belichick Yourself! rest heavily on the fortunes of Brady's crew, as they have six Patriots on their roster.

    • Great Idea, Poor Execution

      Belichick Yourself! will need assistance from the waiver wire in Week 10, as their three WRs with the most projected seasonal points (Andre Johnson, Julian Edelman, and DeSean Jackson) will all be on bye that week.

    • Stockpiling Talent at TE

      Belichick Yourself! should be in good shape with three position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE is definitely the strongest among them.

    • Bold Strategy, Belichick Yourself!

      Let's see if it pays off. In Week 10, both Adam Vinatieri and Stephen Gostkowski will be on bye for Belichick Yourself!.

    • Drink Plenty of Milk

      With an average of 7.4 years of NFL experience, Belichick Yourself! has the greatest chance of losing a player to osteoporosis.

    • Team of Champions

      Belichick Yourself! is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Julius Thomas, DeSean Jackson, and Reggie Bush).

    Player Analysis

      • Julius Thomas, TE
      • Round 1, Pick 5
      A Sizable Target in the Red Zone

      With 7.9 projected TD catches, Julius Thomas ranks third in the NFL among TEs in that category.

      • Rob Gronkowski, TE
      • Round 2, Pick 8
      Haters Gonna Hate

      The rest of League of URMAGERD! League overlooked a gem, and Belichick Yourself! made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Rob Gronkowski.

      • G. Bernard, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 17
      Rethinking That One?

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

      • A. Ellington, RB
      • Round 4, Pick 20
      Does Andre Ellington Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

      Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. Ellington is ranked eighth in the league with 1,508 all-purpose yards.

      • Michael Floyd, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 32
      Was the 32nd Pick the Right Time for Michael Floyd?

      Belichick Yourself! apparently believes it is. The Cardinals' wide receiver is projected to get 1,641 points this year, after producing 2,006 last year.

    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..."
