Projected to Finish Fourth, Chow Time! Is Loaded with Talent

Draft Summary

Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. Chow Time! put together a quality team and is projected to finish in fourth-place in One Hit Wonder League at 9-6-0 (2,390 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Drew Brees (37th overall), RB Eddie Lacy (5th), WR Dez Bryant (12th), and TE Jimmy Graham (28th) within the first five rounds. They built the most prolific QB combo in the league, as they added Brees and Tony Romo to their squad.

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

Schedule

Week 8 would be a good opportunity for Chow Time! to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Chow Time! has the opportunity to exit the gates quickly, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • A Talented Trio

    Chow Time! has three above-average positions on their roster (TE, DEF, and QB).

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Chow Time! will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 8, as their only K (Dan Carpenter) and only DEF (Philadelphia) will both be on bye that week.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, Chow Time! chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • Trigger Happy

    With their ninth-round pick, Chow Time! pulled the trigger. They drafted Ryan Mathews at pick number 69 despite an ADP of just 119.5 across all Yahoo! leagues.

  • Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, Chow Time! got a steal in the 10th round, when they selected Tony Romo (76th overall pick vs. ADP of 53.9).

  • Is Tony Romo Religious?

    With 325 projected points, Chow Time! will be hoping Romo is the answer to their prayers.

Player Analysis

    • Eddie Lacy, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Advanced Math

    If Chow Time! had a nickel for every time Eddie Lacy is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 329 nickels.

    • Dez Bryant, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 12
    234 Reasons for Chow Time! to Appreciate Dez Bryant

    Bryant ranks eighth in the One Hit Wonder League among WRs with 234 projected fantasy points.

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 21
    Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Fajitas?

    Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. McCoy is projected to rank eighth in the league with 1,558 all-purpose yards.

    • Jimmy Graham, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 28
    Will a Run-Heavy Offense Hurt Production?

    Chow Time! sure hopes not. Though he might not put up New Orleans-esque numbers, Graham is almost certain to be one of Russell Wilson's favorite targets moving forward.

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 37
    Blitzkrieg

    Chow Time! drafted the most explosive QB in the league in Drew Brees. He's projected to drop bombs on DBs this year, to lead NFL QBs in plays over 40 yards with 13.3 and TDs over 40 yards with 5.1.

Best Available

With three below-average positions on Chow Time!, RB and K are expected to be the worst of those potential areas 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..."
