Mediocrity isn't for everyone Whitey Ballers, so feel proud. Ok, maybe it is. But hey, you showed up, and that's the important thing. After this average draft performance, Whitey Ballers is projected to go 7-7-0 (1,870 points) and finish seventh in Mafia-warfare League. If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Alshon Jeffery (second round), Wes Welker (fourth round), and Percy Harvin (fifth round). They built the most prolific group of RBs in the league, as they added LeSean McCoy, Zac Stacy, Ray Rice, and Stevan Ridley to their roster.
Whitey Ballers should drop off the grid during Week 4. They have seven players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have an easier-than-average schedule. Although they have the sixth-easiest overall schedule, Whitey Ballers actually has the second-toughest first four games of the season.
Separating the Wheat from the Chaff
At four different positions, Whitey Ballers picked up projected top-3 players (including Seattle, Dan Bailey, and LeSean McCoy).
Team of Champions?
Whitey Ballers 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: LeSean McCoy, Alshon Jeffery, and Zac Stacy.
This is the American version, folks. Whitey Ballers elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.
Defense Wins Championships?
Whitey Ballers chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
The Bargain Whisperer
Whitey Ballers was hunting for steals throughout the draft, snapping up a trio of bargains in the first 11 rounds (Seattle, Dan Bailey, and Ray Rice).
A Stretch of the Imagination
Grabbing Ronnie Hillman at pick 168 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Hillman is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Fajitas?
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 1, Pick 1
Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. McCoy is projected to rank fifth in the league with 1,626 total yards.
257 Excuses to Cheer for Alshon Jeffery
- Alshon Jeffery, WR
- Round 2, Pick 24
Jeffery ranks eighth in the Mafia-warfare League among wideouts with 257 projected fantasy points.
- Zac Stacy, RB
- Round 3, Pick 25
If Whitey Ballers had a nickel for every time Zac Stacy is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 299 nickels.
Returning to Greatness
- Percy Harvin, WR
- Round 5, Pick 49
If special teams contributions count in Mafia-warfare League, Whitey Ballers may have found a gem in Percy Harvin. Including his 788 projected return yards, he ranks third in the league with 1,708 all-purpose yards.
Was Jay Cutler the Best Choice at Pick No. 72?
- Jay Cutler, QB
- Round 6, Pick 72
Whitey Ballers apparently thinks so. The Bears' signal-caller is projected to improve to the tune of 291 points this year, after only putting up 193 last year.
Whitey Ballers has a couple positions they may look to upgrade (QB and TE), but QB is the area they'll want to focus their attention first.
- Ryan Tannehill
- Rank 147, ADP 134
- Joe Flacco
- Rank 172, ADP 125
- Michael Vick
- Rank 229, ADP 122

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.
