    Slated for a Third-Place Finish, Selfdestructobust Will Be a Tough Out

    Draft Summary

    Putting together a decent team, Selfdestructobust didn't want to show up the Yahoo Public 334254 League and build some unbeatable juggernaut. They instead focused on building a team with a good chance to make the playoffs. Humbly, they are expected to finish in third-place in Yahoo Public 334254 League at 9-5-0 (1,349 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Larry Fitzgerald (third round), Wes Welker (fourth round), and DeSean Jackson (fifth round). They put together one of the lowest-scoring groups of RBs in the league, as they added Marshawn Lynch, Rashad Jennings, Steven Jackson, and Fred Jackson.

    Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

    Schedule

    Ever wonder what exactly was inside the brief case in Pulp Fiction? Selfdestructobust should use Week 4 to solve the mystery, since they certainly won't be winning. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a softer-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 Selfdestructobust.

    Draft Notes

    • Great Idea, Poor Execution

      Selfdestructobust might require waiver wire help in Week 4, as their No. 1- (Larry Fitzgerald), No. 2- (Wes Welker) and No. 4-ranked (Emmanuel Sanders) WRs will all be idle that week.

    • AARP Card's in the Mail

      With an average of 9.3 years of NFL experience, Selfdestructobust is the team most likely to have a player qualify for a senior citizen discount.

    • Big D

      Selfdestructobust elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

    • A Dominating Duo

      Selfdestructobust has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Drew Brees and DeSean Jackson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    • No Back-Up Necessary

      Going with just a single TE (Martellus Bennett) and K (Phil Dawson), Selfdestructobust opted to add depth at other positions.

    • Mr. Relevant

      In terms of projected points, the choice of Eli Manning was the strongest pick of the final round. Savvy move there, Selfdestructobust.

    Player Analysis

      • Marshawn Lynch, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 9
      Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

      Get on up, it's Marshawn Lynch time! He should run cool this season with 203 projected points.

      • Drew Brees, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 12
      Like a Prancing Unicorn

      Drew Brees is a fantasy dream. He's projected to finish second in the NFL in both passing TDs (37.9) and passing yards (5,277).

      • L. Fitzgerald, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 29
      164 More Reasons to Appreciate Larry Fitzgerald

      Fitzgerald ranks 10th in the Yahoo Public 334254 League among WRs with 164 projected fantasy points.

      • Wes Welker, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 32
      Defensive Coordinators Plan Specifically for Welker

      Wes Welker is expected to reach paydirt 9.2 times, placing him ninth in the NFL in projected receiving TDs.

      • DeSean Jackson, WR
      • Round 5, Pick 49
      Rethinking That One

      DeSean Jackson may not justify his 49th overall draft pick if projections hold true. Currently, he is estimated to fall outside the NFL's top-30 in both yards (31st with 971) and TDs (38th with 5.8).

    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..."
