Projected to Finish 12th, Jameis 4 MVP Has the Look of a Cellar Dweller

Draft Summary

Maybe Jameis 4 MVP was out partying with Gronk and autodrafted? Hopefully that's their excuse as they are projected to finish 12th in Apollo M.O.V.E. League with a record of 1-12-0 (1,593 points). With their first five picks, Jameis 4 MVP aimed for balance, selecting QB Andrew Luck (44th overall), RBs David Johnson (5th) and DeMarco Murray (53rd), and WRs Keenan Allen (20th) and Sammy Watkins (29th). They also built one of the lowest-scoring groups of WRs in the league, as they have Allen, Watkins, Jordan Matthews, and DeSean Jackson for their rotation.

Yikes. At least it can't get any worse. In fact, if you nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame, you'll be an official nominee. Feel better?

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Jameis 4 MVP has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a softer-than-average schedule. Corresponding with the sixth-easiest overall schedule, Jameis 4 MVP also has the second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Putting Their Best Foot Forward

    Jameis 4 MVP knows this isn't European football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • Big D

    Jameis 4 MVP elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Jameis 4 MVP nabbed a sleeper in Sammie Coates with pick No. 236.

  • Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, Jameis 4 MVP got a steal in the ninth round, when they selected Graham Gano (101st overall pick vs. ADP of 83.9).

  • A Stretch of the Imagination

    Grabbing Robert Golden at pick 140 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Golden is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

  • Not Afraid to Scramble

    With 395 projected rushing yards (ranked fourth among QBs), Alex Smith has multiple ways to bring in points.

Player Analysis

    • David Johnson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Advanced Math

    If Jameis 4 MVP had a nickel for every time David Johnson is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 313 nickels.

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    Maybe Allen Will Surprise

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

    • Sammy Watkins, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 29
    The Alchemist

    Jameis 4 MVP chose a WR who's highly likely to turn a deep ball into TD gold. Sammy Watkins is projected to rank fourth among NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 6.1 and TDs over 40 yards with 2.3.

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 44
    Do You Know if Andrew Luck is Religious?

    With 349 projected points, Jameis 4 MVP is hoping Luck will be the answer to their prayers.

    • J. Matthews, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 68
    Was Jordan Matthews the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 68?

    Jameis 4 MVP apparently thinks so. The Eagles' wideout is projected to earn 78 points this year, after putting up 86 last year.

Best Available

Jameis 4 MVP has four positions where an upgrade could be beneficial, with WR being the most immediate need.

    • Michael Thomas
    • Rank 129, ADP 127

    • Rishard Matthews

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..."
