Corresponding with a solid draft slot (fourth overall), kayla's Tip-Top Team had a stellar showing. With a mark of 11-3-0 (1,574 points), they're projected to finish first in Yahoo Public 304642 League. They used their first three picks on wideouts Antonio Brown (4th overall), Julio Jones (17th), and Randall Cobb (24th), giving them a competitive "500" team that should dominate the playground in no time. These players will be heavily relied upon by kayla's Tip-Top Team, as they are the most prolific group of WRs in the league.
Week 10 would be a good opportunity for kayla's Tip-Top Team to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a harder-than-average slate. In addition to having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, kayla's Tip-Top Team also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.
Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for kayla's Tip-Top Team, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Randall Cobb) and fourth-ranked (Jeremy Maclin) wideouts.
kayla's Tip-Top Team has four stronger-than-average positions with WR and QB projected to lead the way.
Team of Champions?
kayla's Tip-Top Team is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Antonio Brown, Randall Cobb, and Jeremy Maclin.
Basic Math is Optional
Michael Vick once claimed "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 631 projected rushing yards, Colin Kaepernick can channel his inner Vick to help kayla's Tip-Top Team this year.
In terms of projected points, the choice of Shaun Suisham was the strongest pick of the final round. Savvy move there, kayla's Tip-Top Team.
kayla's Tip-Top Team Found Their WR1
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 4
Brown paced all wideouts with 129 receptions and 1,698 yards last season. Only Demaryius Thomas (184) got more targets than Brown's 181, and only Dez Bryant (16) had more TDs than Brown's 13.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 2, Pick 17
Julio Jones was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
The Power of Persuasion
- Randall Cobb, WR
- Round 3, Pick 24
Now would be a reasonable time for kayla's Tip-Top Team to encourage the Yahoo Public 304642 League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Randall Cobb and his 90 projected catches (ranked sixth in the NFL).
Knowing When to Take Off
- Russell Wilson, QB
- Round 4, Pick 37
He won't get too flashy in the passing game, but the ability to create with his legs makes Wilson a legitimate threat to NFL defenses -- and to future fantasy opponents of kayla's Tip-Top Team.
- Greg Olsen, TE
- Round 5, Pick 44
Across all Yahoo! leagues, only one Tight End (Gronkowski) appeared on first-place rosters more often than Greg Olsen last year.
RB and TE are expected to be the weakest positions for kayla's Tip-Top Team and a potential area of need.
- Isaiah Crowell
- Rank 91, ADP 110
- Chris Ivory
- Rank 96, ADP 120
- Austin Seferian-Jenkins
- Rank 137, ADP 134
- Vernon Davis
- Rank 152, ADP 127

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.
