While this draft by Karli's Amazing Team didn't exactly set the world on fire, it didn't destroy their playoff aspirations either. They are expected to be in the mix for a playoff spot with a projected seventh-place finish in FFL 2015 League at 6-7-0 (2,331 points). They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Alshon Jeffery (third round), Randall Cobb (fourth round), and Brandin Cooks (fifth round). They built the best TE combo in the league, as they have Rob Gronkowski and Delanie Walker on their team.
Karli's Amazing Team should use Week 7 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 four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-difficult-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Karli's Amazing Team.
Maybe You Should Add Tony Gonzalez While You're At It
Karli's Amazing Team must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 4, both Rob Gronkowski and Delanie Walker will be on bye.
Up, Up, and Away
With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Karli's Amazing Team hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.
Stockpiling Talent at TE
Karli's Amazing Team should be in good shape with four position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE is definitely the strongest among them.
Team of Champions
Karli's Amazing Team is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Rob Gronkowski, Le'Veon Bell, and Randall Cobb).
Karli's Amazing Team elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
A Stretch of the Imagination
Grabbing Micah Hyde at pick 90 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Hyde is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
And It Wasn't Even Close
- Rob Gronkowski, TE
- Round 1, Pick 10
Across all Yahoo! leagues, no Tight End appeared more often on first-place rosters than Gronk last year.
Bell is Hungry
- Le'Veon Bell, RB
- Round 2, Pick 11
And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank seventh in the NFL with 307 touches.
297 Reasons for Karli's Amazing Team to Appreciate Alshon Jeffery
- Alshon Jeffery, WR
- Round 3, Pick 30
Jeffery ranks ninth in the FFL 2015 League among WRs with 297 projected fantasy points.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Randall Cobb, WR
- Round 4, Pick 31
Randall Cobb was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
- Brandin Cooks, WR
- Round 5, Pick 50
Karli's Amazing Team may have found a gem in the fifth round, grabbing Brandin Cooks (50th overall pick vs. ADP of 39.5).
QB and RB are expected to be the weakest positions for Karli's Amazing Team and a potential area of need.
- 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.
