Maybe if The Nanny purchases a lift kit and some giant tires for this roster it won't seem so average. The playoffs are not out of reach for this team, but it will require some effort. They are projected to finish seventh in P-TOWN HOES with a record of 6-7-0 (1,978 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Aaron Rodgers (8th overall), RBs Jeremy Hill (13th) and Alfred Morris (28th), and WRs Emmanuel Sanders (33rd) and Brandon Marshall (48th). They built the lowest-scoring group of WRs in the league, as they have Sanders, Keenan Allen, Marshall, and Kendall Wright for their rotation.
The Nanny took advantage of their only keeper spot to hold on to Aaron Rodgers (15.3 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is less valuable than a first-round draft pick.
Week 7 would be a good opportunity for The Nanny to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for The Nanny.
The Nanny minimized risk by choosing eight consistent players among their 16 picks.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
The Nanny will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 9, as their only K (Matt Prater) and only DEF (Seattle) will both be on bye that week.
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 1, Pick 8
Despite attempting 32.5 passes per game (just 22nd in the league), Rodgers threw for the seventh-most yards (4,381) and third-most TDs (38) last season. A whopping 33 QBs tossed more interceptions than Rodgers' five.
It's not that Gio Bernard Wasn't Good
- Jeremy Hill, RB
- Round 2, Pick 13
It's that Jeremy Hill was just that great. The first-year RB from LSU led all rookies in rush attempts (222), rushing yards (1,124), and rush TDs (9).
- E. Sanders, WR
- Round 4, Pick 33
A bargain at his ADP last season, Sanders was one of just four WRs to notch 100 receptions in 2014. Only one other WR (Antonio Brown) appeared more often on championship rosters across Yahoo! last season.
Was Keenan Allen the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 53?
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 6, Pick 53
The Nanny apparently thinks so. The Chargers' wideout is projected to improve to the tune of 191 points this year, after only putting up 137 last year.
A Bit of a Reach
- G. Bernard, RB
- Round 7, Pick 68
The Nanny went out on a limb with their seventh-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Giovani Bernard has an ADP of 101.4, but he was grabbed at pick No. 68. Patience is a virtue, The Nanny.
The Nanny has four positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including TE and WR, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Dwayne Allen
- Rank 125, ADP 126
- Austin Seferian-Jenkins
- Rank 127, ADP 134
- Roddy White
- Rank 81, ADP 79
- DeVante Parker
- Rank 131, ADP 127

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.
