Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. Miranda's Team put together a quality team and is projected to finish in third-place in The FF League at 9-5-0 (1,584 points). They loaded up on ball carriers early, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs Eddie Lacy (first round), Frank Gore (third round), and Jonathan Stewart (fifth round). They ended up with one of the most prolific groups of WRs in the league, as they have Julio Jones, Brandin Cooks, Vincent Jackson, and Larry Fitzgerald on their team.
Week 10 could be a frustrating one for Miranda's Team, as their top two projected scorers (Matt Ryan and Philip Rivers) will be resting that weekend. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the least challenging schedules. Miranda's Team has the opportunity to come out firing, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away
It's likely that in Week 10, Miranda's Team will either be scraping the wire or begging for a trade (Matt Ryan and Philip Rivers will both be on bye). You can give Favre a call, but texting him isn't recommended.
Shouldering the Burden
Miranda's Team has five above-average positions with WR and TE projected to lead the way.
The coach of Miranda's Team might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted QB (Matt Ryan) and second-drafted QB (Philip Rivers) have very similar seasonal point projections.
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
Miranda's Team grabbed a sleeper in Danny Woodhead with pick No. 127.
Take One Play Off and He Burns You
Philip Rivers likes to score quickly, ranking fifth among NFL QBs with 4.3 TDs over 40 yards.
Danny Woodhead is always a threat to break off a long one, ranking fourth among NFL RBs in percentage of touches over 40 yards (1.2%).
- Eddie Lacy, RB
- Round 1, Pick 7
If Miranda's Team had a nickel for every time Eddie Lacy is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 329 nickels.
Hopping for Julio
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 2, Pick 14
Jones was the lone NFL player to log 30 catches of at least 20 yards last season, and only Odell Beckham, Jr. averaged more receiving yards per game in 2014.
Apparently ADP is Overrated
- J. Stewart, RB
- Round 5, Pick 47
With their fifth-round pick, Miranda's Team pulled the trigger. They took Jonathan Stewart at pick number 47 despite an ADP of just 78.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.
- Matt Ryan, QB
- Round 6, Pick 54
Matt Ryan is one of the most dynamic NFL QBs. Projections have him ranking fourth in plays over 40 yards with 11.4 and TDs over 40 yards with 4.4.
A Big Target for the QB
- M. Bennett, TE
- Round 7, Pick 67
Martellus Bennett ranks fifth in the The FF League among TEs with 112 projected fantasy points.
If Miranda's Team is looking to make a roster move, QB is a position they could look to upgrade first.
- Jay Cutler
- Rank 130, ADP 131
- Marcus Mariota
- Rank 134, ADP 122
- Andy Dalton
- Rank 135, ADP 125
- Jameis Winston
- Rank 148, ADP 123

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.
