Projected to Finish Fourth, Brandy's Boss Team Has a Legit Squad

Draft Summary

Picking late (eighth overall), Brandy's Boss Team did what they could with what they were given. While this team isn't a juggernaut by any means, it's a team capable of reaching the playoffs if the chips fall their way. They are expected to finish fourth in The FF with a record of 9-5-0 (1,565 points). Even though Brandy's Boss Team has five RBs on the roster, they are projected to average 128 points this season. This is a disappointing number due to the heavy investment at the position, as it is fewer than the league average of 157. They have a quality group of WRs, as they added Antonio Brown, Golden Tate and Sammy Watkins for their rotation.

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

Schedule

Week 9 would be a good opportunity for Brandy's Boss Team 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. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the softest slates. Corresponding with the second-easiest overall schedule, Brandy's Boss Team also has the easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • On Autopilot

    Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for Brandy's Boss Team, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (Tevin Coleman) and fourth-ranked (Reggie Bush) RBs.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Brandy's Boss Team will need an assist from the waiver wire in Week 9, as their only TE (Jimmy Graham), only K (Matt Prater), and only DEF (Arizona) will all be on bye that week.

  • Highlight Reel

    Brandy's Boss Team is stacked at TE, but QB isn't too shabby, either.

  • In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb

    The GM of Brandy's Boss Team must have had to leave their draft party early. After tallying the most projected points in the league over the draft's first half, they racked up the fewest during the second half.

  • QB Controversy?

    Brandy's Boss Team may have to rely on a Ouija board each week. Their top-drafted QB (Tony Romo) and second-drafted QB (Tom Brady) have fairly similar seasonal point projections.

  • Top Heavy

    The top half of the Brandy's Boss Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1). The bottom of the roster, unfortunately, is rated as the league's weakest.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 8
    Brandy's Boss Team Found Their WR1

    Brown paced all wideouts with 129 receptions and 1,698 yards last season. Only Demaryius Thomas (184) got more targets than Brown's 181, and only Dez Bryant (16) had more TDs than Brown's 13.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    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.

    • Mark Ingram, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 28
    Taking a Chance

    With their third-round pick, Brandy's Boss Team threw caution to the wind. They took Mark Ingram at pick number 28 despite an ADP of 38.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Jimmy Graham, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 33
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of The FF League overlooked a gem, and Brandy's Boss Team made the highest value pick of the round by taking Jimmy Graham.

    • Tony Romo, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 53
    A Super Duper Signal-Caller

    Tony Romo is projected to rack up 345 points this year, enough to rank seventh among all QBs.

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..."
