    Led by a Stellar WR Corps, David's Team Is a Team to Keep an Eye On

    Draft Summary

    Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. David's Team put together a quality team and is projected to finish in fourth-place in Yahoo Public 334254 League at 8-6-0 (1,354 points). With six WRs on the roster, David's Team has a quality group of receivers; their WRs are projected to average 143 points this season, near the league average of 140. They landed one of the most prolific groups of WRs in the league, as they have Dez Bryant, Antonio Brown, Eric Decker, and Reggie Wayne 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

    Week 10 could be a frustrating one for David's Team, as their top two projected scorers (Andrew Luck and Philip Rivers) will be relaxing at home that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. In addition to having the fifth-easiest overall schedule, David's Team has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

      David's Team grabbed a couple of QBs (Andrew Luck and Philip Rivers) that'll both be on bye in Week 10, and will be looking for a signal-caller. You can call Brett, but texting him isn't exactly recommended.

    • Highlight Reel

      David's Team is stacked at TE, but WR isn't too shabby, either.

    • A Pair of Proven Winners

      David's Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Matt Forte and Antonio Brown) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    • You Snooze, You Lose

      While the rest of the league slept on Kelvin Benjamin, David's Team pounced on him at pick No. 126.

    • No Back-Up Necessary

      By choosing only a single TE (Rob Gronkowski) and DEF (Buffalo), David's Team elected to add depth elsewhere on the roster.

    • A Versatile Combination

      Pierre Thomas can hurt opponents with his hands as well as his feet. He ranks fourth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 532.

    Player Analysis

    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..."
