    Led by a Talented WR Corps, Fish's Phins Has Great Shot at Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. Fish's Phins put together a quality team and is projected to finish in fourth-place in Belgrade Beer Drinkers League at 9-5-0 (1,460 points).

    Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

    Keeper Summary

    Fish's Phins took advantage of all 12 of their keeper slots, stockpiling WRs. They held on to three WRs among their top-five keepers-- Dez Bryant (10.7 ADP), Brandon Marshall (14.3 ADP), and Julio Jones (19.8 ADP). From an ADP perspective, their top-ranked keeper (Dez Bryant), is less valuable than a first-round draft choice. Overall, the top five keepers on Fish's Phins are projected to be marginally less productive (by 8.4%) than the draft picks they replaced.

    Schedule

    Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Fish's Phins 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 a tougher-than-average schedule. Fish's Phins has the opportunity to finish the season on a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

    Draft Notes

    • Maybe You Should Add Tony Gonzalez While You're At It

      Fish's Phins must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 4, both Jordan Cameron and Jared Cook will be on bye.

    • Strength in Numbers

      WR is the best position for Fish's Phins, though DEF and TE are also stronger-than-average.

    • Close to the Vest

      Fish's Phins was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing eight "low-risk" players out of 17 picks.

    • A Dominating Duo

      Fish's Phins has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jordy Nelson and Reggie Bush) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    • Bargain Shopper

      With four steals in the first 10 rounds (including Andrew Luck, Jordy Nelson, and Julio Jones), Fish's Phins made some shrewd moves.

    • Biggest Steal

      If other Yahoo! users are right, Fish's Phins got a steal in the ninth round, when they selected Andrew Luck (86th overall pick vs. ADP of 55.3).

    Player Analysis

      • Dez Bryant, WR
      • Round 1, Pick 6
      It's Normal to Have Those Feelings at Your Age

      Terrell Owens once said "I love me some me." While T.O. falls in love with himself, Fish's Phins is head over heels for Dez Bryant, who's projected to lead all WRs with 184 fantasy points.

      • B. Marshall, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 16
      175 More Reasons to Appreciate Brandon Marshall

      Marshall ranks seventh in the Belgrade Beer Drinkers League among WRs with 175 projected fantasy points.

      • Le'Veon Bell, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 26
      If it Ain't Broke

      Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Fish's Phins didn't grab their first RB (Le'Veon Bell) until the third round.

      • Julio Jones, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 36
      The Power of Persuasion

      Now would be a reasonable time for Fish's Phins to encourage the Belgrade Beer Drinkers League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Julio Jones and his 105 projected catches (ranked second in the NFL).

      • Reggie Bush, RB
      • Round 6, Pick 56
      He Can Catch, Too

      Reggie Bush is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks third among RBs in projected receiving yards with 557.

    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..."
