A masterful draft-day performance by the GM of UrWoRsTnIgHtMaRe turned the sixth overall pick into a projected finish of first. They're expected to finish 12-1-0 (1,948 points) in STRAIGHT CASH HOMIE League. They went after quarterbacks early, using two of their first four picks to grab Peyton Manning (first round) and Andrew Luck (fourth round). These guys could be the key to the season for UrWoRsTnIgHtMaRe, as they are the best QB pair in the league.
UrWoRsTnIgHtMaRe should use Week 11 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why do we park in a driveway but drive on a parkway? It will be better to think about that than to check fantasy football. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the least difficult slate. UrWoRsTnIgHtMaRe has the opportunity to exit the gates quickly, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Selecting starting RBs should be a simple task most weeks for UrWoRsTnIgHtMaRe, as the projected point difference between their second-ranked (Shane Vereen) and third-ranked (Bernard Pierce) RBs is significant.
Earning Your Paycheck
UrWoRsTnIgHtMaRe will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Torrey Smith), fourth- (Michael Crabtree), and fifth-ranked (Cecil Shorts III) wideouts.
Up, Up, and Away
With five players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, UrWoRsTnIgHtMaRe hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.
Shouldering the Burden
UrWoRsTnIgHtMaRe has four above-average positions with TE and QB projected to lead the way.
Full Control Early On
UrWoRsTnIgHtMaRe began things with a bang, nabbing the most projected points in the league during the draft's first half.
UrWoRsTnIgHtMaRe elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
Fantasy is Better Than Reality
- Peyton Manning, QB
- Round 1, Pick 6
Even though he fell short in Super Bowl 48, Peyton Manning was more likely to be owned on a 2013 Yahoo! championship roster than any other QB.
Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 2, Pick 15
Julio Jones is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 105 projected catches rank third in the league.
If it Ain't Broke
- Zac Stacy, RB
- Round 3, Pick 26
Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, UrWoRsTnIgHtMaRe didn't grab their first RB (Zac Stacy) until the third round.
UrWoRsTnIgHtMaRe's Stud Signal-Caller
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 4, Pick 35
Andrew Luck is projected to rack up 314 points this year, enough to rank seventh among all QBs.
Throwing Caution to the Wind
- Shane Vereen, RB
- Round 5, Pick 46
They grabbed Shane Vereen with the 46th pick, even though his ADP is only 88.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.
RB and K are expected to be the worst positions for UrWoRsTnIgHtMaRe and a potential area of need.
- Jeremy Hill
- Rank 95, ADP 123
- Terrance West
- Rank 107, ADP 121
- Dan Carpenter
- Rank 223, ADP 128

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.
