aaron's Team Draft Report Card


With a Projected Finish of First, aaron's Team Has This League Locked Up

Draft Summary

Watch out. Somebody let aaron's Team loose in the draft room. When the smoke cleared, all that was left was an elite squad capable of destroying opponents at will. They are projected to finish first in Garlo's Dominance League with a record of 9-4-0 (1,913 points). With their first five picks, aaron's Team aimed for balance, selecting QB Russell Wilson (39th overall), RBs Marshawn Lynch (2nd) and Jeremy Hill (19th), and WRs Randall Cobb (22nd) and Emmanuel Sanders (42nd). They have one of the top QB tandems in the league, as they added Wilson and Philip Rivers to their squad.

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


aaron's Team should pick up a new hobby, like bird watching, during Week 7. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for aaron's Team.

Draft Notes

  • Positional Fortitude

    aaron's Team has four positions that are stronger than league average. While QB, WR, and DEF are projected to be good, RB is the best on aaron's Team.

  • Close to the Vest

    aaron's Team was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    aaron's Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • A Dominating Duo

    aaron's Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Randall Cobb and Emmanuel Sanders) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • It's How You Finish

    aaron's Team must have had a motivational halftime speech, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • Marshawn Lynch, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    Marshawn Lynch Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. aaron's Team should be in decent shape if Lynch gets his 310 projected touches this year.

    • Jeremy Hill, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 19

    aaron's Team stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, nabbing Marshawn Lynch and Jeremy Hill right off the bat.

    • Randall Cobb, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 22
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Garlo's Dominance League overlooked a gem, and aaron's Team made the highest value pick of the round by taking Randall Cobb.

    • Russell Wilson, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 39
    Knowing When to Take Off

    He won't get too flashy in the passing game, but the ability to create with his legs makes Wilson a legitimate threat to NFL defenses -- and to future fantasy opponents of aaron's Team.

    • E. Sanders, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 42
    Denver Dynamite

    A bargain at his ADP last season, Sanders was one of just four WRs to notch 100 receptions in 2014. The secret is out, but aaron's Team obviously knows this WR2 is as good a bet as any to post WR1-esque numbers.

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..."
