Although They Stretched for Some Early Picks, Kim's Team Has the Studs to Reach Playoffs

Draft Summary

Kim's Team figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the seventh overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 6-7-0 (2,484 points). With that record, they will likely finish fifth in FFL 2015 League. With four QBs on the roster, Kim's Team surprisingly loaded up at that position during the draft, and might be looking to make a trade. They put together the highest-scoring QB duo in the league, as they added Aaron Rodgers and Colin Kaepernick.

Schedule

Week 7 might require some waiver-wire magic from Kim's Team. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Kim's Team.

Draft Notes

  • A Pair of Strengths

    Kim's Team has two positional units projected to be better than the league average, TE and DEF.

  • "It's Not Whether You Get Knocked Down, It's Whether You Get Up"

    After drafting the fewest projected points in the league over the draft's first half, Kim's Team accumulated the most during the second half. Vince Lombardi would be proud.

  • Officially Mediocre

    While the bottom half of the Kim's Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).

  • Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up

    Kim's Team got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • A Dominating Duo

    Kim's Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Justin Forsett and Emmanuel Sanders) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • It's How You Finish

    Kim's Team must have had a motivational halftime speech, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    Amazing Aaron

    Though he attempted 32.5 passes per game (just 22nd in the league), Rodgers threw for the seventh-most yards (4,381) and third-most TDs (38) last season. A whopping 33 QBs tossed more interceptions than Rodgers' five.

    • J.J. Watt, DE
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    Not Just an Edge Rusher

    Among DEs in FFL 2015 League, J.J. Watt ranks first in projected sacks with 15.

    • Justin Forsett, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 27
    How Rebellious of You

    Kim's Team said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Justin Forsett).

    • E. Sanders, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 34
    Denver Dynamite

    A bargain at his ADP last season, Sanders was one of just four WRs to notch 100 receptions in 2014. Only one other WR (Antonio Brown) appeared more often on championship rosters across Yahoo! last season.

    • Andre Johnson, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 47
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Andre Johnson, the weakest value of the round.

Best Available

Kim's Team has four positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including WR and RB, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Eric Decker
    • Rank 80, ADP 89
    • Mike Wallace
    • Rank 83, ADP 92
    • Tevin Coleman
    • Rank 72, ADP 88

    • Rank 74, ADP 88

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..."
