With a Projected Finish of 10th, bob's Brilliant Team Won't be Writing to Mom About This Draft

Draft Summary

Congratulations, bob's Brilliant Team has earned a participation award. Because that's just about all they did in this draft, participate. This delightful roster (for the opposition) is projected to finish 10th in Yahoo Public 391789 League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,468 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Russell Wilson (26th overall), RBs Le'Veon Bell (6th) and Jeremy Hill (15th), and WRs Andre Johnson (35th) and Jordan Matthews (46th). They have the bottom group of RBs in the league, as they have Hill, Bell, Darren McFadden, and DeAngelo Williams for their rotation.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, bob's Brilliant 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 entire season, they have a tougher-than-average slate. Despite having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, bob's Brilliant Team actually has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Captain Obvious

    Selecting starting RBs should be a simple task most weeks for bob's Brilliant Team, as the projected point difference between their second-ranked (Le'Veon Bell) and third-ranked (Darren McFadden) RBs is significant.

  • Earning Your Paycheck

    bob's Brilliant Team will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Torrey Smith), fourth- (Steve Smith Sr.), and fifth-ranked (Mike Wallace) wideouts.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    bob's Brilliant Team will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 6, as their only K (Dan Bailey) and only DEF (St. Louis) will both be on bye that week.

  • Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up

    bob's Brilliant Team got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    bob's Brilliant Team nabbed a sleeper in Sam Bradford with pick No. 126.

Player Analysis

    • Le'Veon Bell, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 307 touches, Le'Veon Bell is projected to rank seventh in the NFL in that category. How touching, bob's Brilliant Team.

    • Jeremy Hill, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    Old Fashioned

    bob's Brilliant Team stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Le'Veon Bell and Jeremy Hill before targeting other positions.

    • Russell Wilson, QB
    • Round 3, Pick 26
    Knowing When to Take Off

    He won't get too flashy in the passing game, but the ability to create with his legs makes Wilson a legitimate threat to NFL defenses -- and to future fantasy opponents of bob's Brilliant Team.

    • Andre Johnson, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 35
    Delivering Nightmares

    Andre Johnson will look to haunt the dreams of opposing corners, as he's projected to finish 10th in the NFL with 8.1 receiving TDs.

    • J. Matthews, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 46
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Jordan Matthews, the weakest value of the round.

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..."
