    With Multiple Broncos, Unstoppable Will Be Alone at the Bottom

    Draft Summary

    The rest of the league must be shaking their heads at Unstoppable, who successfully took a high draft position and flushed it straight down the toilet. They are projected to finish 12th in Stampede Blue League 3 League with a record of 1-12-0. With their first five picks, Unstoppable aimed for balance, selecting QB Peyton Manning (2nd overall), RBs Ryan Mathews (47th) and Frank Gore (50th), and WRs T.Y. Hilton (23rd) and Percy Harvin (26th). They built the best QB duo in the league, as they added Manning and Alex Smith to their squad.

    Brutal draft. Still, you should nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame. That way, your players will have to live up to the pressure.

    Schedule

    While Week 10 has the most players on bye for Unstoppable (six), Week 4 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the most challenging schedule. Along with the most taxing overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Unstoppable.

    Draft Notes

    • Maybe You Should Add Tony Gonzalez While You're At It

      Unstoppable must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 10, both Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener will be on bye.

    • Highlight Reel

      Unstoppable is stacked at QB, but WR isn't too shabby, either.

    • Golden Handcuff

      Unstoppable hedged their bets by scooping up Donald Brown in the 14th round to back up Ryan Mathews, his Chargers teammate (a fourth-round selection).

    • Sustained Mediocrity

      Unstoppable 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.

    • An Indianapolis Colts Homer

      The fantasy hopes of Unstoppable will rest heavily on the fortunes of the Colts, as they drafted four of them to their squad.

    • Unstoppable Went All YOLO Here

      Grabbing Antone Smith at pick 122 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Smith is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

    Player Analysis

      • Peyton Manning, QB
      • Round 1, Pick 2
      Unstoppable is No Photographer

      But they can picture a fantasy championship with Peyton Manning projected to put up 490 points this year.

      • Percy Harvin, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 26
      Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

      Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Percy Harvin had less value than any other pick of the round.

      • Ryan Mathews, RB
      • Round 4, Pick 47
      If it Ain't Broke

      Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Unstoppable didn't grab their first RB (Ryan Mathews) until the fourth round.

      • Frank Gore, RB
      • Round 5, Pick 50
      Finding Paydirt

      With 8.6 rushing TDs, Frank Gore is projected to finish eighth in the NFL in that category.

      • Dwayne Allen, TE
      • Round 6, Pick 71
      That Just Happened

      Why can't I find Dwayne Allen on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round value."

    Best Available

    While Unstoppable is expected to be weak across four positions, RB is definitely their worst unit and an area of need.

    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..."
