Vancleave Bulldogs Draft Report Card


Loaded With Packers, Vancleave Bulldogs Embarrassed Themselves

Draft Summary

Draft day is always an exciting time for fantasy football fans. The excitement quickly ends, however, when you put together a team like Vancleave Bulldogs. With a projected finish of ninth in The Crow's Nest League at 2-12-0 (2,629 points), that excitement has quickly turned to the seven stages of grief. With their first five picks, Vancleave Bulldogs aimed for balance, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (19th overall), RBs Marshawn Lynch (2nd) and Mark Ingram (39th), and WRs Randall Cobb (22nd) and Davante Adams (42nd). They have one of the worst groups of RBs in the league, as they added Lynch, Ingram, and David Cobb.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.


Week 7 might require some waiver-wire magic from Vancleave Bulldogs, as their top two projected scorers (Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler) will be on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the most difficult slates. In addition to having the second-most taxing overall schedule, Vancleave Bulldogs also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Lambeau Leap

    The fantasy hopes of Vancleave Bulldogs rest heavily on the fortunes of Green Bay, as they loaded up with four Packers on their roster.

  • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

    It's likely that in Week 7, Vancleave Bulldogs will either be scraping the wire or begging for a trade (Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler will both be on bye). You can give Favre a call, but texting him isn't recommended.

  • QB or Bust

    QB is the only stronger-than-average position group for Vancleave Bulldogs.

  • Close to the Vest

    Vancleave Bulldogs was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 17 picks.

  • I Keep Getting Older

    And they stay the same age. Vancleave Bulldogs isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 5.3 years of NFL experience.

  • Going Out with a Whimper

    Vancleave Bulldogs didn't end the night the way they might have liked, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • Marshawn Lynch, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    Lynch is Hungry

    And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank fourth in the NFL with 313 touches.

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 19
    Amazing Aaron

    Though he attempted 32.5 passes per game (just 22nd in the league), Rodgers threw for the seventh-most yards (4,381) and third-most TDs (38) last season. A whopping 33 QBs tossed more interceptions than Rodgers' five.

    • Randall Cobb, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 22
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    Randall Cobb was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

    • Mark Ingram, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 39
    Public Service Announcement

    Flight technicians beware, Mark Ingram has a knack for breaking the plane. Despite just 926 projected rushing yards, Ingram is slated for 9.7 rushing TDs this year.

    • Allen Robinson, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 59
    Was Allen Robinson the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 59?

    Vancleave Bulldogs apparently thinks so. The Jaguars' wideout is projected to put up 140 points this year, after only netting 77 last year.

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..."
