Brew Crew Draft Report Card


With Multiple Steelers, Brew Crew Has a Legit Squad

Draft Summary

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.

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


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.

Draft Notes

  • 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.

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

    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.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Hands Team

    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.

    • Jeremy Hill, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    Hill is Hungry

    And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank eighth in the NFL with 306 touches.

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 3, Pick 24
    Take One Play Off and He Burns You

    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.

    • Tony Romo, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 37
    Thanks for Clearing That Up, Terry

    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.

    • M. Bennett, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 44
    A Big, Reliable Threat

    Martellus Bennett ranks fifth in the FFL 2015 League among TEs with 183 projected fantasy points.

Best Available

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

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..."
