While Bloody Tomahawks is no world-beater, this is a team that could potentially reach the playoffs if some things go their way. Picking 10th overall, Bloody Tomahawks is projected to land in sixth place in Belgrade Beer Drinkers League with a record of 6-8-0 (1,434 points).
Bloody Tomahawks took advantage of 11 of their 12 keeper slots, focusing on roster balance. They elected to retain a QB (Drew Brees, 16.9 ADP), a pair of RBs (Alfred Morris, 27.5 ADP and Rashad Jennings, 57.2 ADP), and a couple of WRs (Roddy White, 38.7 ADP and Wes Welker, 43.6 ADP) as their top-five keepers. From an ADP perspective, their top-ranked keeper (Drew Brees), is less valuable than a first-round draft choice. Overall, the keepers on Bloody Tomahawks are projected to be clearly less productive (by 12.6%) than the draft picks they replaced.
Bloody Tomahawks can chalk up Week 8 as a big fat L. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-challenging-than-average schedule. In addition to having the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Bloody Tomahawks has the league's second-toughest first four games and softest last four games of the season.
Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up
Bloody Tomahawks got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.
You Snooze, You Lose
While the rest of the league slept on Jonathan Stewart, Bloody Tomahawks pounced on him at pick No. 150.
Apparently ADP is Overrated
With their ninth-round pick, Bloody Tomahawks pulled the trigger. They took Charles Clay at pick number 90 despite an ADP of just 123.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.
A Stretch of the Imagination
Grabbing Jacoby Jones at pick 100 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Jones is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
Returning to Greatness
If special teams contributions count in Belgrade Beer Drinkers League, Bloody Tomahawks may have found a gem in Jacoby Jones. Including his 1,322 projected return yards, he ranks fifth in the league with 1,663 all-purpose yards.
Take One Play Off and He Burns You
Kenny Stills is a classic deep-ball weapon, ranking fourth among NFL WRs in percentage of receptions over 40 yards (6.2%).
Like a Prancing Unicorn
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 1, Pick 10
Drew Brees is a fantasy dream. He's projected to finish second in the NFL in both passing TDs (37.9) and passing yards (5,129).
Earning His Keep
- Alfred Morris, RB
- Round 2, Pick 20
With 8.5 rushing TDs and 1,147 rushing yards, Alfred Morris is projected to finish eighth and fifth in the NFL in those categories, respectively.
Was the 60th Pick the Right Time for Frank Gore?
- Frank Gore, RB
- Round 6, Pick 60
Bloody Tomahawks apparently believes it is. The 49ers' running back is projected to get 172 points this year, after putting up 188 last year.
Was Mike Wallace Worth it at Pick No. 70?
- Mike Wallace, WR
- Round 7, Pick 70
Bloody Tomahawks sure hopes so. The Dolphins' WR is projected to put up 131 points this year, after getting 115 last season.
- Jason Witten, TE
- Round 8, Pick 80
Bloody Tomahawks may have found a gem in the eighth round, grabbing Jason Witten (80th overall pick vs. ADP of 62.6).
With three subpar positions on Bloody Tomahawks, WR and K are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Justin Hunter
- Rank 100, ADP 122
- Markus Wheaton
- Rank 109, ADP 128
- Mason Crosby
- Rank 207, ADP 99
- Nick Novak
- Rank 212, ADP 124

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.
