Nick's Neat Team Draft Report Card


Projected to Finish Ninth, Nick's Neat Team Isn't Exactly a Team That Can Win

Draft Summary

Nick's Neat Team should consider renaming the team "Learning Experience," because that's what this draft was. Picking eighth, Nick's Neat Team bumbled their way through their picks, leading to a projected finish of ninth in Yahoo Public 391789 League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,507 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Andrew Luck (13th overall), RB Justin Forsett (28th), WR T.Y. Hilton (33rd), and TE Rob Gronkowski (8th) within the first five rounds. They put together the highest-scoring TE duo in the league, as they have Gronkowski and Dwayne Allen.

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


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Nick's Neat 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. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the softest schedule. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, Nick's Neat Team also has the league's easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Good Luck With That One!

    Nick's Neat Team will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Roddy White), fourth- (Nelson Agholor), and fifth-ranked (Charles Johnson) wideouts.

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    At three different positions, Nick's Neat Team picked up projected top-two players (Rob Gronkowski, Andrew Luck, and Seattle).

  • Carrying the Load

    Nick's Neat Team has a trio of above-average positions leading the way (TE, DEF, and QB).

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Nick's Neat Team must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 8, both Dan Carpenter and Cody Parkey will be on bye.

  • Fantasy FĂștbol

    This is the American version, folks. Nick's Neat Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.

  • Team of Champions

    Nick's Neat Team is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, five of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams, including Rob Gronkowski, Andrew Luck, and Justin Forsett.

Player Analysis

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 1, Pick 8
    A Threat in the Modern Age, Similar to "Beliebers"

    TE is the new secret weapon in the NFL, and Rob Gronkowski leads the way with 163 projected fantasy points.

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    Nick's Neat Team Made Sure Luck Was On Their Side

    Any questions about Luck's development were quelled last year, as the Indy gunslinger firmly entrenched himself among fantasy's elite at the QB position.

    • Justin Forsett, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 28
    How Rebellious of You

    Nick's Neat Team said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Justin Forsett).

    • T.Y. Hilton, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 33
    Haters Gonna Hate

    The rest of Yahoo Public 391789 League overlooked a gem, and Nick's Neat Team made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing T.Y. Hilton.

    • Golden Tate, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 53
    Was Golden Tate the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 53?

    Nick's Neat Team apparently thinks so. The Lions' wideout is projected to notch 128 points this year, after producing 160 last year.

Best Available

With three subpar positions on Nick's Neat Team, WR and K are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.

    • Kenny Stills

    • Davante Adams
    • Rank 119, ADP 126
    • Nick Folk

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..."
