Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, Dorian's Team Needs Roster Improvements

Draft Summary

Entering the draft with the first overall pick, the expectations were high for Dorian's Team. Then they drafted. Those expectations quickly vanished with a projected mediocre seventh-place finish in Yahoo Public 373633 League at 7-7-0 (1,508 points). They stocked up on pass catchers right out of the gate, using their top three selections to snag WRs Antonio Brown (1st overall), Josh Gordon (20th), and Mike Evans (21st). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, Dorian's Team will benefit. They are the highest-scoring group of WRs in the league.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Dorian'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. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a less-challenging-than-average slate. In addition to having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, Dorian's Team has the easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • The Best Player Plays

    Dorian's Team is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 4.7 years of NFL experience.

  • Root, Root, Root for the Home Team

    Dorian's Team is a believer in the hopes of the Cleveland Browns this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.

  • Risk Averse

    Dorian's Team minimized risk by choosing eight consistent players among their 15 picks.

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, Dorian's Team chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).

  • Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up

    Dorian's Team got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • Insider Trading?

    Tevin Coleman is owned in only 9% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Dorian's Team has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 1
    Hands Team

    With a grip that would make Spider-Man jealous, Antonio Brown has serious value in all PPR leagues. He's projected to catch an NFL-leading 132 balls this year.

    • Josh Gordon, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    Rethinking That One

    Josh Gordon won't justify his 20th overall draft pick if projections hold true. Currently, he is estimated to fall outside the NFL's top-100 in both yards (378th with zero) and TDs (305th with 0).

    • Jeremy Hill, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 40
    How Rebellious of You

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

    • Jordan Reed, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 41
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Yahoo Public 373633 League overlooked a gem, and Dorian's Team made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Jordan Reed.

    • Allen Hurns, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 60
    That Just Happened

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

Best Available

Dorian's Team has four positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including DEF and RB, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Cincinnati Defense
    • Rank 226, ADP 138
    • Green Bay Defense
    • Rank 238, ADP 135
    • Giovani Bernard
    • Rank 83, ADP 106
    • Karlos Williams
    • Rank 100, ADP 114

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..."
