Ben There Raped That Draft Report Card


With a Projected Finish of Sixth, joey's Team Will Only Scare Opponents if They Wear a Mask

Draft Summary

While the joey's Team roster doesn't exactly scream playoffs, it's a roster that can be improved with some wheeling and dealing. As of now, they are projected to finish sixth in Deal Fantasy Football League with a record of 7-6-0 (2,132 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (4th overall), RB Melvin Gordon (37th), WR Odell Beckham Jr. (17th), and TE Jimmy Graham (24th) within the first five rounds. They put together one of the highest-scoring QB tandems in the league, as they have Rodgers and Marcus Mariota on the roster.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, joey's Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the entire season, they have the most difficult schedule. In addition to having the most taxing overall schedule, joey's Team also has the league's toughest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    With four better-than-average positions on joey's Team, QB and DEF are projected as especially strong units.

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    At three different positions, joey's Team picked up projected top-two players (Aaron Rodgers, Jimmy Graham, and Connor Barth).

  • Insider Trading?

    Derek Carr is owned in only 7% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) joey's Team has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Amazing Aaron

    Though he attempted 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.

    • O. Beckham Jr., WR
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    Blackjack Beckham

    A 21-year-old rookie who was injured to begin the year, Beckham concluded 2014 with 21 targets in Week 17 against Philadelphia. No other player saw more targets in a single game all season.

    • Jimmy Graham, TE
    • Round 3, Pick 24
    Will His Production Drop-Off?

    joey's Team sure hopes not. Though he might not put up Saints-esque numbers, Graham is almost certain to be one of Russell Wilson's favorite targets moving forward.

    • Melvin Gordon, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 37
    How Rebellious of You

    joey's Team said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (Melvin Gordon).

    • A. Ellington, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 57
    He Can Catch, Too

    Andre Ellington is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fifth among RBs with 470 projected receiving yards.

Best Available

TE and RB are expected to be the weakest positions for joey's Team and a potential 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..."
