Hopefully just because this draft was average, BroncosChamps3233 won't purchase a muscle car or jacked-up truck to overcompensate. And hey, with the right breaks, maybe this team can reach the playoffs. They are projected to finish seventh in The FF League with a record of 5-9-0 (1,542 points). They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Andrew Luck (1st overall), RBs Justin Forsett (21st) and Andre Ellington (40th), and WRs Calvin Johnson (20th) and Brandon Marshall (41st). They landed the bottom TE combo in the league, as they added Owen Daniels and Antonio Gates.
BroncosChamps3233 should use Week 9 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like what was the greatest thing before sliced bread? No, seriously, think about it. It's better than thinking about fantasy football that week. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with having the third-most grueling overall schedule, BroncosChamps3233 also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.
Get Off My Lawn
With an average of 9 years of NFL experience, BroncosChamps3233 is the oldest and by default, least exciting team in the league.
Denver Broncos Fan?
BroncosChamps3233 reached twice to draft a Denver Broncos player.
Bold Strategy, BroncosChamps3233
Let's see if it pays off. In Week 10, both Adam Vinatieri and Matt Bryant will be on bye for BroncosChamps3233.
BroncosChamps3233 knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.
Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up
BroncosChamps3233 got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.
Team of Champions?
BroncosChamps3233 is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Andrew Luck, Justin Forsett, and Jeremy Maclin.
Making Sure Luck's on Your Side
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 1, Pick 1
Any questions about Luck's development were silenced last season, as the Colts' signal-caller firmly establsihed himself among fantasy's elite.
The Power of Persuasion
- Calvin Johnson, WR
- Round 2, Pick 20
Now would be a reasonable time for BroncosChamps3233 to encourage the The FF League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Calvin Johnson and his 89 projected catches (ranked eighth in the NFL).
If it Ain't Broke
- Justin Forsett, RB
- Round 3, Pick 21
Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, BroncosChamps3233 didn't grab their first RB (Justin Forsett) until the third round.
A Versatile Combination
- A. Ellington, RB
- Round 4, Pick 40
Andre Ellington can hurt opponents with his hands as well as his feet. He ranks fifth among RBs with 471 projected receiving yards.
- Jeremy Maclin, WR
- Round 6, Pick 60
Across all Yahoo! leagues, only two WRs (Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders) appeared on first-place rosters more often than Maclin last year.
BroncosChamps3233 has three positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including TE and RB, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Jordan Reed
- Rank 133, ADP 136
- Dwayne Allen
- Rank 143, ADP 128
- David Cobb
- Rank 106, ADP 125
- Duke Johnson Jr.
- Rank 115, ADP 125

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.
