Brew Crew figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the fourth overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 9-4-0 (2,505 points). With that record, they will likely finish third in FFL 2015 League. They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Drew Brees (24th overall), RB Jeremy Hill (17th), WR Antonio Brown (4th), and TE Martellus Bennett (44th) within the first five rounds. They put together one of the best WR combos in the league, as they added Brown and Keenan Allen.
Brew Crew should use Week 11 to consider life's great mysteries, like why Greenland is ice and Iceland is green. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the least challenging slates. Along with the third-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Brew Crew.
The City of Champions?
The fantasy hopes of Brew Crew rest heavily on the fortunes of Pittsburgh, as they have four Steelers players on their roster.
Shouldering the Burden
Brew Crew has five above-average positions with WR and QB projected to lead the way.
Brew Crew knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.
Defense Wins Championships?
Brew Crew chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
Taking a Chance
With their ninth-round pick, Brew Crew threw caution to the wind. They took Shaun Suisham at pick number 84 despite an ADP of 139.6 across all Yahoo! leagues.
On Peterson Island
With four projected interceptions, Patrick Peterson places second in that category among all CBs in FFL 2015 League.
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 4
With sticky hands that would make Spider-Man jealous, Antonio Brown has serious value in all PPR leagues. He's projected to catch an NFL-leading 117 balls this year.
Hill is Hungry
- Jeremy Hill, RB
- Round 2, Pick 17
And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank eighth in the NFL with 306 touches.
Take One Play Off and He Burns You
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 3, Pick 24
Brew Crew drafted the most explosive QB in the league in Drew Brees. He's projected to lead NFL QBs in plays over 40 yards with 13.2 and TDs over 40 yards with 5.1.
Thanks for Clearing That Up, Terry
- Tony Romo, QB
- Round 4, Pick 37
Terry Bradshaw once said “I may be dumb, but I'm not stupid.” Brew Crew hopes that drafting Tony Romo and his 32.7 projected passing TDs was a choice that Bradshaw wouldn't make.
A Big, Reliable Threat
- M. Bennett, TE
- Round 5, Pick 44
Martellus Bennett ranks fifth in the FFL 2015 League among TEs with 183 projected fantasy points.
DEF, the only subpar position on Brew Crew, is one area that could potentially be upgraded.
- San Francisco Defense
- Rank 217, ADP 141
- Carolina Defense
- Rank 224, ADP 130
- Detroit Defense
- Rank 234, ADP 130
- Denver Defense
- Rank 249, ADP 127

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.
