    Michael's Team Draft Report Card

    B-
    Grade

    With a Projected Finish of Seventh, Michael's Team Isn't Anything to Get Excited About

    Draft Summary

    Look Michael's Team, not everyone achieves the "above" in "above average," it has to be earned. Just be happy being an average GM, and maybe with a little hard work and a better draft next season, your team will reach that milestone. Michael's Team didn't kill their playoff aspirations with this draft, but they'll have to do some extra work to get there. For now, they're projected to finish in seventh-place in Yahoo Public 391811 League at 6-8-0 (1,337 points). With five WRs on the roster, Michael's Team guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 143, their WRs projected average of 146 points won't be much different than the rest of the wideouts around the league. They put together one of the top TE pairs in the league, as they have Rob Gronkowski and Ladarius Green.

    Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

    Schedule

    Michael's Team might as well plan a vacation for Week 10. 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 a softer-than-average slate. Michael's Team has the opportunity to close with a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

    Draft Notes

    • Maybe You Should Add Tony Gonzalez While You're At It

      Michael's Team must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 10, both Rob Gronkowski and Ladarius Green will be on bye.

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

      Michael's Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

    • You Snooze, You Lose

      While the rest of the league slept on Johnny Manziel, Michael's Team pounced on him at pick No. 129.

    Player Analysis

      • Marshawn Lynch, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 9
      Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

      Get on up, it's Marshawn Lynch time! He should run cool this season with 203 projected points.

      • Dez Bryant, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 12
      Better Lucky Than Good?

      The rest of Yahoo Public 391811 League overlooked a gem, and Michael's Team made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Dez Bryant.

      • Rob Gronkowski, TE
      • Round 5, Pick 49
      The Tightest of Ends

      Rob Gronkowski is projected to rank among the top-5 for TEs in both receiving TDs (third with 7.9) and receiving yards (second with 1,040).

      • Cam Newton, QB
      • Round 6, Pick 52
      Basic Math is Optional

      Michael Vick once claimed "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 606 projected rushing yards, Cam Newton can channel his inner Vick to help Michael's Team this year.

      • T. Williams, WR
      • Round 7, Pick 69
      Was Terrance Williams the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 69?

      Michael's Team apparently thinks so. The Cowboys' wideout is projected to improve to the tune of 142 points this year, after only putting up 102 last year.

    Best Available

    If Michael's Team has a desire to make a roster move, QB and RB are areas of need.

    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..."
