Maybe these pre-season projections will get Paris's Team to play with a chip on their shoulder. It's definitely going to require some sort of extra effort if they hope to reach the playoffs. Hell, it may require extra effort just to get a win. Paris's Team is projected to go 0-14-0 (1,160 points) and finish 10th in Yahoo Public 334254 League. They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Peyton Manning (7th overall), RB Reggie Bush (34th), WR A.J. Green (14th), and TE Vernon Davis (27th) within the first five rounds. They have the best QB pair in the league, as they added Manning and Jay Cutler to their squad.
Paris's Team should just disappear for a while during Week 9. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the most challenging schedule. Along with having the most taxing overall schedule, Paris's Team also has the league's toughest first four games and second-most difficult last four games of the season.
QB or Bust
Unfortunately, QB is the only strong position on Paris's Team. Fortunately, there's always next year.
Root, Root, Root for the Home Team
Paris's Team is a believer in the hopes of the San Francisco 49ers this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.
Paris's Team accumulated the fewest projected points in the first half of the draft, and didn't exactly right the ship, grabbing the fewest points in the draft's second half, as well.
A Pair of Proven Winners
Paris's Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Peyton Manning and Reggie Bush) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, Paris's Team chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
You Snooze, You Lose
While the rest of the league slept on Carlos Hyde, Paris's Team pounced on him at pick No. 127.
Fantasy is Better Than Reality
- Peyton Manning, QB
- Round 1, Pick 7
Even though he fell short in Super Bowl 48, Peyton Manning was more likely to be owned on a 2013 Yahoo! championship roster than any other QB.
190 Excuses to Cheer for A.J. Green
- A.J. Green, WR
- Round 2, Pick 14
Green ranks sixth in the Yahoo Public 334254 League among wideouts with 190 projected fantasy points.
A Sizable Target in the Red Zone
- Vernon Davis, TE
- Round 3, Pick 27
With 5.9 projected TD catches, Vernon Davis ranks fifth in the NFL among TEs in that category.
How Rebellious of You
- Reggie Bush, RB
- Round 4, Pick 34
Paris's Team said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (Reggie Bush).
Was the 54th Pick the Right Time for Marques Colston?
- M. Colston, WR
- Round 6, Pick 54
Paris's Team apparently believes it is. The Saints' wide receiver is projected to net 144 points this year, after putting up 124 last year.
While Paris's Team is expected to be weak across five positions, K is definitely their worst unit and an area of need.
- Jay Feely
- Rank 229, ADP 145
- Nick Folk
- Rank 230, ADP 145
- Robbie Gould
- Rank 231, ADP 140
- Graham Gano
- Rank 232, ADP 145

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.
