If there was a Hall of Average, Luckness Monster would have a plaque. Unfortunately, there isn't, so instead they'll just have to settle for losing more often than not. This team is projected to finish in eighth-place in Stampede Blue League 3 League at 6-7-0 (1,544 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Demaryius Thomas (first round), Victor Cruz (third round), and Reggie Wayne (fifth round). They built the bottom group of RBs in the league, as they have Marshawn Lynch, Stevan Ridley, Shonn Greene, and James Starks on their roster.
Luckness Monster should use Week 12 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why don't the pants worn by Dr. Bruce Banner rip when he transforms into the Hulk? It's better to think about that than pay attention to fantasy football. 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 easiest schedules. Luckness Monster has the opportunity to start and finish with a flurry, as both the first four games and final four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Good Luck With That One!
Luckness Monster will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Brian Hartline), fourth- (Reggie Wayne), and fifth-ranked (Justin Hunter) wideouts.
Separating the Wheat from the Chaff
At three different positions, Luckness Monster picked up projected top-3 players (Stephen Gostkowski, Demaryius Thomas, and Carolina).
The Sky's the Limit
With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Luckness Monster hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.
You Snooze, You Lose
While the rest of the league slept on Justin Hunter, Luckness Monster pounced on him at pick No. 154.
If other Yahoo! users are right, Luckness Monster got a steal in the ninth round, when they selected Stephen Gostkowski (106th overall pick vs. ADP of 75.7).
Luckness Monster Went All YOLO Here
Grabbing James Starks at pick 178 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Starks is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
The Power of Persuasion
- D. Thomas, WR
- Round 1, Pick 10
Now would be a reasonable time for Luckness Monster to encourage the Stampede Blue League 3 League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Demaryius Thomas and his 106 projected catches (ranked second in the NFL).
Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme
- Marshawn Lynch, RB
- Round 2, Pick 15
Get on up, it's Marshawn Lynch time! He should run cool this season with 233 projected points.
Rethinking That One?
- Nick Foles, QB
- Round 4, Pick 39
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Nick Foles was the weakest value pick of the round.
Rethinking That One
- Reggie Wayne, WR
- Round 5, Pick 58
While drafted 58th overall, Reggie Wayne isn't projected among the NFL's top-30 in either receiving TDs (43rd with 5.6) or receiving yards (48th with 837).
Was the 63rd Pick the Right Time for Stevan Ridley?
- Stevan Ridley, RB
- Round 6, Pick 63
Luckness Monster apparently believes it is. The Patriots' running back is projected to earn 144 points this year, after putting up 128 last year.
Luckness Monster has a couple positions they may look to upgrade (RB and TE), but RB is the area they'll want to focus their attention first.
- Christine Michael
- Rank 119, ADP 126
- BenJarvus Green-Ellis
- Rank 188, ADP 118

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.
