Dallas Steel City Draft Report Card


Projected to Finish First, Kenyon Woods's Team Will Make Opponents Regret Playing Fantasy Football

Draft Summary

Rome wasn't built in a day, but Kenyon Woods's Team built a Holy Roman Empire-formidable team in less than two hours. They are projected to go 11-1-2 (1,360 points) and finish in first. They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Andrew Luck (19th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (2nd) and Frank Gore (39th), and WRs Jordy Nelson (22nd) and Martavis Bryant (42nd). They built one of the most prolific QB tandems in the league, as they added Luck and Jay Cutler to their squad.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.


Week 10 might require some waiver-wire magic from Kenyon Woods's Team. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the easiest schedule. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, Kenyon Woods's Team also has the easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Carrying the Load

    Kenyon Woods's Team has four above-average positions with QB and TE projected to lead the way.

  • Up and Comers

    Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and Kenyon Woods's Team may have done just that, with five players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Kenyon Woods's Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    Kenyon Woods's Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Andrew Luck and Jordy Nelson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • A Multifaceted Machine

    Spiller is a dual-threat back for Kenyon Woods's Team, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks second among RBs in projected receiving yards with 554.

  • A Big, Strong Threat

    Jason Witten ranks fourth in the Yahoo Public 290795 League among TEs with 110 projected fantasy points. If the pundits are wrong and he places outside the top-10, Kenyon Woods's Team could be on the outside looking in come playoff time.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 333 touches, Adrian Peterson is projected to rank third in the NFL in that category. How touching, Kenyon Woods's Team.

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 19
    Making Sure Luck's on Your Side

    Any questions about Luck's development were silenced last season, as the Colts' signal-caller firmly establsihed himself among fantasy's elite.

    • Jordy Nelson, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 22
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Yahoo Public 290795 League overlooked a gem, and Kenyon Woods's Team made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Jordy Nelson.

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 59
    Was Keenan Allen Worth it at Pick No. 59?

    Kenyon Woods's Team sure hopes so. The Chargers' WR is projected to put up 151 points this year, after only netting 98 last season.

    • Jordan Cameron, TE
    • Round 7, Pick 62
    Throwing Caution to the Wind

    They grabbed Jordan Cameron with the 62nd pick, even though his ADP is only 79.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.

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.
