Picking seventh, Kim's Team put together a team that is expected to finish the season in a favorable spot. There's something to be said for a GM who flipped a bottom of the barrel pick into a projected fifth-place finish in FFL 2015 League (6-7-0, 2,484 points). With four QBs on the roster, Kim's Team surprisingly loaded up at that position during the draft, and may be looking for trading partners. They have the top QB duo in the league, as they added Aaron Rodgers and Colin Kaepernick to their squad.
Kim's Team should use Week 7 to finally build that mini trainyard. Really just about anything other than checking fantasy football will do. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a less-challenging-than-average slate. Along with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Kim's Team.
A Dominating Pair
TE and DEF are both projected to be really solid units for Kim's Team.
"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.
Good to Have Balance, Right?
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).
Kim's Team got off to a sluggish start, winding up with the fewest projected points 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 made every other squad look silly after some amazing halftime adjustments, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 1, Pick 7
Despite attempting 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.
Like Mike Tyson or Luis Suárez
- J.J. Watt, DE
- Round 2, Pick 14
J.J. Watt will take a bite out of your offensive game plan. Among DEs in FFL 2015 League, Watt ranks first in projected sacks with 15.
If it Ain't Broke
- Justin Forsett, RB
- Round 3, Pick 27
Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Kim's Team didn't grab their first RB (Justin Forsett) until the third round.
- E. Sanders, WR
- Round 4, Pick 34
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.
It Was a Learning Experience
- Andre Johnson, WR
- Round 5, Pick 47
Hey, remember that time Kim's Team took Andre Johnson WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Johnson was the weakest value pick of the round.
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 92
- Mike Wallace
- Rank 83, ADP 93
- Tevin Coleman
- Rank 72, ADP 90
- Joique Bell
- Rank 74, ADP 92

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..."
