Allen's Team Draft Report Card

Grade

Led by a Stellar WR Corps, Allen's Team Is the Obvious Front-Runner

Draft Summary

Watch out. Somebody let Allen's Team loose in the draft room. When the smoke cleared, all that was left was an elite squad capable of destroying opponents at will. They are projected to finish first in Yahoo Public 373633 League with a record of 11-3-0 (1,616 points). They honed in on wide receivers early, using their top three selections to snag Odell Beckham Jr. (2nd overall), Alshon Jeffery (19th), and Jordy Nelson (22nd). These guys could be the key to the season for Allen's Team, as they are the best group of WRs in the league.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.

Schedule

While Week 5 has the most players on bye for Allen's Team (four), Week 10 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the lightest slate. Along with the easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Allen's Team.

Draft Notes

  • On the Rise

    Allen's Team hopes to break through this season, led by four players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Allen's Team will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 5, as their only K (Steven Hauschka) and only DEF (Kansas City) will both be on bye that week.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the Allen's Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 2). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 8).

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    Allen's Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Odell Beckham Jr. and Tom Brady) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, Allen's Team got a steal in the ninth round, when they selected Tom Brady (82nd overall pick vs. ADP of 68).

  • Allen's Team did the Math

    In 2015, Tom Brady had the most passing TDs, the third-most passing yards, and just the 25th-most interceptions.

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..."
