With Multiple Raiders, I'm a BEAST Will be Average This Season

Draft Summary

While the I'm a BEAST roster doesn't exactly scream playoffs, it's a roster that can be improved with some wheeling and dealing. As of now, they are projected to finish seventh in animals of the bay 5 League with a record of 6-7-0 (2,334 points). They wanted to make sure they had plenty of wideout options, picking Demaryius Thomas (third round), Mike Evans (fourth round), DeSean Jackson (sixth round), and Amari Cooper (seventh round) with four of their first seven selections. They have the bottom QB tandem in the league, as they added Matthew Stafford and Sam Bradford.

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

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, I'm a BEAST has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Corresponding with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, I'm a BEAST also has the league's second-easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    I'm a BEAST is loaded at RB, but DEF isn't too shabby, either.

  • Close to the Vest

    I'm a BEAST was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing eight "low-risk" players out of 20 picks.

  • A Team of Destiny?

    The fantasy hopes of I'm a BEAST rest heavily on the fortunes of the Raiders, as they have four of them on their roster.

  • The Bargain Whisperer

    I'm a BEAST was hunting for deals throughout the draft, snapping up four steals in the first 12 rounds (including New England, DeSean Jackson, and Mike Evans).

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, I'm a BEAST chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • Did Stretch Armstrong Make That Pick?

    Grabbing Khalil Mack at pick 99 was definitely a reach. Mack is owned on just a handful of teams across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    Feed Thy Beast

    Adrian Peterson will get the ball early and often, projected to finish second in the league with 333 touches.

    • M. Stafford, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 19
    Take Shelter

    • D. Thomas, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 22
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

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

    • Mike Evans, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 39
    On a Scale of 1 to America

    How free will Mike Evans get in the secondary? He's projected to put up 1,253 receiving yards this year.

    • DeSean Jackson, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 59
    Let Me Check it Again

    Why can't I find DeSean Jackson on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round flier."

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..."
