Caleb's Choice Team put together an underrated roster that might not dominate week in and week out, but will be firmly entrenched in a playoff spot by season's end. They're projected to finish the season with an 8-6-0 (1,329) record in Yahoo Public 391811 League, which will be good enough for fifth. Despite selecting five WRs for their roster, Caleb's Choice Team may not get what they think they will out of the position. Their WRs are projected to average 130 points this season, fewer than the league average of 143. They landed the bottom group of WRs in the league, as they added Keenan Allen, Victor Cruz, Kendall Wright, and DeAndre Hopkins.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Caleb's Choice Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-difficult-than-average schedule. Along with having the third-most grueling overall schedule, Caleb's Choice Team has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.
Bold Strategy, Caleb's Choice Team
Let's see if it pays off. In Week 4, both Steven Hauschka and Jay Feely will be on bye for Caleb's Choice Team.
This is the American version, folks. Caleb's Choice Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.
A Pair of Proven Winners
Caleb's Choice Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Matt Forte and DeMarco Murray) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
Not Afraid to Scramble
With 453 projected rushing yards (ranking fifth among QBs), Russell Wilson has multiple ways to bring in points.
Does Matt Forte Enjoy Fajitas?
- Matt Forte, RB
- Round 1, Pick 5
Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Forte is projected to rank fourth in the league with 1,773 total yards.
- DeMarco Murray, RB
- Round 2, Pick 16
Caleb's Choice Team stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Matt Forte and DeMarco Murray before targeting other positions.
Doling Out Nightmares
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 3, Pick 25
Keenan Allen will look to haunt the dreams of opposing corners, as he's projected to finish 10th in the NFL with 8.7 receiving TDs.
A Big Target in the Red Zone
- Vernon Davis, TE
- Round 5, Pick 45
With 5.9 projected TD catches, Vernon Davis ranks fifth in the NFL among TEs in that category.
Was the 56th Pick the Right Time for Andrew Luck?
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 6, Pick 56
Caleb's Choice Team apparently believes it is. The Colts' quarterback is projected to have 298 points this year, just a bit lower than his total from last season.
With three below-average positions on Caleb's Choice Team, WR and TE are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Tavon Austin
- Rank 121, ADP 129
- Danny Amendola
- Rank 127, ADP 127
- Dwayne Allen
- Rank 178, ADP 136
- Owen Daniels
- Rank 182, 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.
