BroncosChamps3233 Draft Report Card


With Too Many Reaches Early, BroncosChamps3233 Has a Roster that Reeks of Mediocrity

Draft Summary

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.

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


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.

Draft Notes

  • 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.

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

    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.

Player Analysis

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 1
    Making Sure Luck's on Your Side

    Any questions about Luck's development were silenced last season, as the Colts' signal-caller firmly establsihed himself among fantasy's elite.

    • Calvin Johnson, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    The Power of Persuasion

    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).

    • Justin Forsett, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 21
    If it Ain't Broke

    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. Ellington, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 40
    A Versatile Combination

    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
    Mighty Maclin

    Across all Yahoo! leagues, only two WRs (Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders) appeared on first-place rosters more often than Maclin 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..."
