Entering the draft with the fourth overall pick, the expectations were high for Bjoern Winner. Then they drafted. Those expectations quickly vanished with a projected mediocre seventh-place finish in Stampede Blue League 3 League at 7-6-0 (1,574 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Andrew Luck (21st overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (4th) and Rashad Jennings (45th), and WRs Julio Jones (28th) and Michael Floyd (52nd). They have one of the top groups of WRs in the league, as they have Jones, Marques Colston, Floyd, and Emmanuel Sanders on their team.
Bjoern Winner should pick up a new hobby, like bird watching, during Week 10. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least challenging slates. In addition to having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, Bjoern Winner also has the second-softest last four games of the season.
With four better-than-average positions on Bjoern Winner, TE and RB are projected as especially strong units.
Up and Comers
Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and Bjoern Winner may have done just that, with four players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.
No Back-Up No Cry
Ignoring roster depth, Bjoern Winner chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
Basic Math is Optional
Michael Vick once claimed "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 664 projected rushing yards, Colin Kaepernick can channel his inner Vick to help Bjoern Winner this year.
A Stretch of the Imagination
Grabbing Ahmad Bradshaw at pick 148 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Bradshaw is owned on just a handful of teams across all Yahoo! leagues.
Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?
- A. Peterson, RB
- Round 1, Pick 4
Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. Peterson is ranked eighth in the league with 1,608 all-purpose yards.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 2, Pick 21
Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Andrew Luck had less value than any other pick of the round.
The Power of Persuasion
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 3, Pick 28
Now would be a reasonable time for Bjoern Winner to encourage the Stampede Blue League 3 League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Julio Jones and his 105 projected catches (ranked third in the NFL).
A Choice That Wasn't Exactly Data-Driven
- R. Jennings, RB
- Round 4, Pick 45
According to projections, Rashad Jennings will fall outside of the NFL top-20 in both rushing TDs (24th with 5.5) and yards (26th with 767). Seems like Bjoern Winner just went with their gut on this one.
Apparently ADP is Overrated
- E. Sanders, WR
- Round 6, Pick 69
With their sixth-round pick, Bjoern Winner pulled the trigger. They took Emmanuel Sanders at pick number 69 despite an ADP of just 104.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.
WR and DEF are projected to be the weakest units for Bjoern Winner.
- Kenny Stills
- Rank 129, ADP 130
- James Jones
- Rank 137, ADP 129
- Baltimore Defanse
- Rank 233, ADP 143
- New York Defanse
- Rank 240, ADP 124

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..."
