    With a Projected Finish of Fifth, Rolling Stones Will Battle Every Week

    Draft Summary

    Rolling Stones delivered a solid draft performance, taking the third overall draft slot and turning it into a team with playoff potential. With an expected record of 7-7-0 (1,359 points), they're projected to finish fifth in Yahoo Public 334254 League. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Aaron Rodgers (18th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (3rd) and Doug Martin (23rd), and WRs Victor Cruz (38th) and Roddy White (43rd). They have the worst group of WRs in the league, as they have White, Cruz, Riley Cooper, and Steve Smith Sr. on their team.

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

    Schedule

    Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Rolling Stones 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 one of the least challenging schedules. Corresponding with the third-easiest overall schedule, Rolling Stones also has the league's second-easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • On Autopilot

      Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for Rolling Stones, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Riley Cooper) and fourth-ranked (Steve Smith Sr.) wideouts.

    • Not Afraid to Scramble

      With 675 projected rushing yards (ranking first among QBs), Colin Kaepernick has multiple ways to bring in points.

    • Mr. Irrelevant

      In terms of projected points, the choice of Steve Smith Sr. with the 143rd pick gave Rolling Stones the worst pick of the final round. This Mr. Irrelevant gets no parade, unfortunately.

    Player Analysis

      • A. Peterson, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 3
      Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Peterson is projected to rank second in the league with 1,857 all-purpose yards.

      • Aaron Rodgers, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 18
      Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

      Despite being an above-average player at his position, Aaron Rodgers was the weakest value pick of the round.

      • Jason Witten, TE
      • Round 6, Pick 58
      A Big, Strong Threat

      Jason Witten ranks fourth in the Yahoo Public 334254 League among TEs with 131 projected fantasy points. If the pundits are wrong and he places outside the top-10, Rolling Stones could be on the outside looking in come playoff time.

      • Chris Johnson, RB
      • Round 7, Pick 63
      A Bit of a Reach

      Rolling Stones went out on a limb with their seventh-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Chris Johnson has an ADP of 83.3, but he was grabbed at pick No. 63. Patience is a virtue, Rolling Stones.

    Best Available

    Rolling Stones could potentially upgrade WR and TE, but WR is the position they'll want to focus on first.

    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..."
