    Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, The Jabronies Has an Elite Squad With Championship Hopes

    Draft Summary

    Even though The Jabronies didn't have a high draft pick (sixth overall), it didn't matter, as they built a legit squad capable of taking it to any opponent that gets in their way. As far as projections go, they will probably finish first in (some of) Master P's grandkids League with a record of 10-3-0 (1,610 points). They got aggressive about drafting running backs early, snagging Jamaal Charles (6th overall), DeMarco Murray (15th), and Giovani Bernard (26th). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, The Jabronies will benefit. They are the top group of RBs in the league.

    With a draft like that, you might as well make it official. Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, The Jabronies has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the easiest slate. The Jabronies has the opportunity to start and finish with a flurry, as both the first four games and final four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

    Draft Notes

    • Assessing the Assets

      TE is the strongest position for The Jabronies, though RB and DEF are also better than the league's average.

    • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

      With seven "low-risk" players among their 16 picks, The Jabronies is looking for dependable help.

    • A Pair of Proven Winners

      The Jabronies has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jamaal Charles and DeMarco Murray) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    • My One and Only

      Ignoring roster depth, The Jabronies chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

    • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

      The Jabronies nabbed a sleeper in Devonta Freeman with pick No. 155.

    • Not Afraid to Scramble

      With 664 projected rushing yards (ranking first among QBs), Colin Kaepernick has multiple ways to bring in points.

    Player Analysis

      • Jamaal Charles, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 6
      2014 Could be More of the Same

      Owners who took a chance on Charles last season were rewarded handsomely, as he was owned on more playoff rosters across Yahoo! than any other RB.

      • DeMarco Murray, RB
      • Round 2, Pick 15
      Is His Jersey Made of Honey?

      Because the projections for DeMarco Murray are sweet. He's projected to be the sixth-best RB in the league this season.

      • Rob Gronkowski, TE
      • Round 4, Pick 35
      Stolen In Broad Daylight

      Rob Gronkowski was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

      • V. Jackson, WR
      • Round 5, Pick 46
      On a Scale of 1 to America

      How free will Vincent Jackson get in the secondary this year? He's projected to reel in 1,198 receiving yards.

      • Torrey Smith, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 55
      Was Torrey Smith Worth it at Pick No. 55?

      The Jabronies sure hopes so. The Ravens' WR is projected to have 170 points this year, almost the same as his total from last season.

    Best Available

    If The Jabronies wants to upgrade, QB and WR are areas they could go after first.

      • Jay Cutler
      • Rank 77, ADP 100
      • Russell Wilson
      • Rank 92, ADP 100
      • Justin Hunter
      • Rank 116, ADP 126
      • Tavon Austin
      • Rank 128, ADP 130

    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..."
