It doesn't matter how you get to the playoffs, it only matters that you get there. Anna's Bananas is a squad built to get there and is projected to finish third in P-TOWN HOES League with a record of 8-5-0 (2,006 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Antonio Brown (first round), T.Y. Hilton (third round), and DeAndre Hopkins (fourth round). If these players can play up to expectations, Anna's Bananas can have some success. They are the top group of WRs in the league.
Anna's Bananas used their only keeper position to hold on to Antonio Brown (6.3 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is as valuable as a draft pick in the bottom half of the first round.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Anna's Bananas has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Anna's Bananas.
Anna's Bananas is loaded at RB, but WR isn't too shabby, either.
Sky's the Limit
With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Anna's Bananas hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.
Get Off My Lawn
With an average of 8.3 years of NFL experience, Anna's Bananas is the oldest and by default, least exciting team in the league.
Team of Champions?
Anna's Bananas 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: Antonio Brown, C.J. Anderson, and T.Y. Hilton.
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
Anna's Bananas grabbed a sleeper in Kyle Rudolph with pick No. 157.
Danny Woodhead is owned in only 6% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward Anna's Bananas for their faith! Or not.
Anna's Bananas Just Landed a Target Machine
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 4
Joining Demaryius Thomas (184) as the only players to see 170+ targets last season, Brown never got fewer than nine looks in a game after Week 1, logging a grand total of 181.
C.J. Anderson Doesn't Read the Playbook
- C.J. Anderson, RB
- Round 2, Pick 17
The playbook reads him. Anna's Bananas should be in decent shape if Anderson gets his 303 projected touches this year.
A Bit of a Reach
- Joseph Randle, RB
- Round 5, Pick 44
Anna's Bananas went out on a limb with their fifth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Joseph Randle has an ADP of 62, but he was grabbed at pick No. 44. Patience is a virtue, Anna's Bananas.
A Super Duper Signal-Caller
- Tony Romo, QB
- Round 6, Pick 57
Tony Romo is projected to rack up 426 points this year, enough to rank seventh among all QBs.
Was the 64th Pick the Right Time for Jason Witten?
- Jason Witten, TE
- Round 7, Pick 64
Anna's Bananas apparently believes it is. The Cowboys' tight end is projected to net 140 points this year, after putting up 132 last year.
With four below-average positions on Anna's Bananas, TE and K are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Dwayne Allen
- Rank 125, ADP 126
- Austin Seferian-Jenkins
- Rank 127, ADP 134
- Dan Carpenter
- Rank 202, ADP 90
- Nick Folk
- Rank 223, 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.
