Projected to Finish Fifth, NON-threatning Is Good Enough to Barely Miss Playoffs

Draft Summary

The GM of NON-threatning took the second overall pick in the draft and turned it into a pretty decent team. Unless of course they planned on winning, because if that was the plan, then it didn't go very well. NON-threatning will need to make some moves to improve their playoff chances, currently projected to finish fifth in One Hit Wonder League with a record of 8-7-0 (2,376 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Andrew Luck (2nd overall), RBs C.J. Anderson (15th) and DeMarco Murray (18th), and WRs T.Y. Hilton (31st) and Andre Johnson (34th). They built the lowest-scoring group of WRs in the league, as they have Hilton, Johnson, Brandon Marshall, and Steve Smith Sr. on their team.

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

Schedule

NON-threatning should use Week 10 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why do we park in a driveway but drive on a parkway? It will be better to think about that than to check fantasy football. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. In addition to having the third-most grueling overall schedule, NON-threatning has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    NON-threatning might need to hit the waiver wire in Week 10, as their No. 1- (T.Y. Hilton), No. 2- (Andre Johnson) and No. 5-ranked (Stevie Johnson) WRs will all be resting that week.

  • NON-threatning will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 9, as their only K (Steven Hauschka) and only DEF (Seattle) will both be on bye that week.

  • Senior Citizen Discount

    With an average of 8.1 years of NFL experience, NON-threatning is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.

  • Going Out with a Whimper

    NON-threatning didn't end the night the way they might have liked, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • Team of Champions

    NON-threatning assembled a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including Andrew Luck, C.J. Anderson, and DeMarco Murray.

  • Biggest Steal

    NON-threatning may have found a gem in the 10th round, grabbing Joseph Randle (79th overall pick vs. ADP of 59.6).

Player Analysis

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 2

    • C.J. Anderson, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    Feed Thy Beast

    DeMarco Da Man

    Across all Yahoo! leagues, only one Running Back (Le'Veon Bell) showed up on more first-place rosters than Murray last season.

    • Andre Johnson, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 34
    Doling Out Nightmares

    Andre Johnson will look to haunt the dreams of opposing corners, as he's projected to finish eighth in the NFL with 8.4 receiving TDs.

    • Greg Olsen, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 47
    Giddy for Greg

    Across all Yahoo! leagues, only one TE (Rob Gronkowski) appeared more often on first-place rosters than Olsen last year.

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..."
