In Spite of Some Early-Round Reaches, Brett's Stud Team Looks Like a Playoff Squad

Draft Summary

It doesn't matter how you get to the playoffs, it only matters that you get there. Brett's Stud Team is a squad built to get there and is projected to finish fourth in The Fantasy Football League with a record of 7-6-0 (1,578 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Antonio Brown (third round), Andre Johnson (fourth round), and DeSean Jackson (fifth round). They have one of the worst groups of RBs in the league, as they have Adrian Peterson, Danny Woodhead, Fred Jackson, and Carlos Hyde on their team.

With a draft like that, you might as well make it official. Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

Schedule

Ever wonder what exactly was inside the brief case in Pulp Fiction? Brett's Stud Team should use Week 10 to solve the mystery, since they certainly won't be winning. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the weakest schedules. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, Brett's Stud Team has the league's second-toughest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • On Autopilot

    Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for Brett's Stud Team, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (Fred Jackson) and fourth-ranked (Carlos Hyde) RBs.

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    Brett's Stud Team drafted top-3 players at a trio of different positions (Seattle, Drew Brees, and Adrian Peterson).

  • How Much Tread's Left on the Tires

    With an average of 7.4 years of NFL experience, Brett's Stud Team is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.

  • Golden Handcuff

    Brett's Stud Team hedged their bets by scooping up Matt Asiata in the 15th round to back up Adrian Peterson, his Vikings teammate (a first-round selection).

  • Team of Champions

    Brett's Stud Team 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 (Drew Brees, Antonio Brown, and DeSean Jackson).

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, Brett's Stud Team chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Fajitas?

    Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Peterson is projected to rank fifth in the league with 1,641 total yards.

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 22
    Do You Know if Drew Brees is Religious?

    With 381 projected points, Brett's Stud Team is hoping Brees will be the answer to their prayers.

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 27
    The Power of Persuasion

    Now would be a reasonable time for Brett's Stud Team to encourage the The Fantasy Football League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Antonio Brown and his 95 projected catches (ranked fourth in the NFL).

    • Danny Woodhead, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 70
    Trigger Happy

    With their sixth-round pick, Brett's Stud Team pulled the trigger. They drafted Danny Woodhead at pick number 70 despite an ADP of just 121.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Greg Olsen, TE
    • Round 7, Pick 75
    Was Greg Olsen Worth Pick No. 75?

    Brett's Stud Team apparently thinks so. The Panthers' TE is projected to get 155 points this year, nearly identical to his total last season.

Best Available

With three below-average positions on Brett's Stud Team, RB and WR are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.

    • BenJarvus Green-Ellis
    • Rank 192, ADP 118
    • Eddie Royal
    • Rank 208, ADP 125
    • Brandon LaFell
    • Rank 209, ADP 124

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..."
