Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, dj's Team Has a Legit Squad

Draft Summary

dj's Team figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the eighth overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 9-5-0 (1,607 points). With that record, they will likely finish third in Jacked Up League. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Drew Brees (48th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (8th) and Matt Forte (33rd), and WRs Dez Bryant (13th) and Keenan Allen (28th). They also have the most prolific group of RBs in the league, as they added Peterson, Forte, and Rashad Jennings.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, dj's Team 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 one of the weakest schedules. In addition to having the second-easiest overall schedule, dj's Team also has the softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Get Off My Lawn

    With an average of 8.6 years of NFL experience, dj's Team is the oldest and by default, least exciting team in the league.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With nine "low-risk" players among their 17 picks, dj's Team is looking for dependable help.

  • It's How You Finish

    dj's Team made every other squad look silly after some amazing halftime adjustments, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • Single Serving

    Going with just a single TE (Antonio Gates) and K (Adam Vinatieri), dj's Team opted to add depth at other positions.

  • Making the Big Tuna Proud

    Bill Parcells once said "I like linebackers. I collect 'em. You can't have too many good ones." Well, Parcells would approve of Lavonte David. Among LBs in Jacked Up League, Lavonte David ranks seventh in projected tackles with 131.

  • Did Stretch Armstrong Make That Pick?

    Grabbing Ha Ha Clinton-Dix at pick 168 was definitely a reach. Clinton-Dix is owned on just a handful of teams across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 8
    Adrian Peterson Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. dj's Team should be in decent shape if Peterson gets his 323 projected touches this year.

    • Dez Bryant, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    A Nose for the End Zone

    Dez Bryant is expected to cross the goal line 9.8 times, placing him second in the NFL in projected receiving TDs. His 1,287 projected receiving yards also place him seventh in the league.

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 28
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

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

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 48
    Like Elway in His Prime

    Drew Brees is projected to lead the NFL in both passing yards (4,799) and passing TDs (31.3).

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 53
    Was the 53rd Pick the Right Time for DeMarco Murray?

    dj's Team apparently believes so. The Titans' running back is projected to score 142 points this year, nearly identical to his total 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..."
