    Caleb's Choice Team Draft Report Card


    Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, Caleb's Choice Team Has the Studs to Reach Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    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.

    Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.


    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.

    • A Pair of Proven Winners

      With 453 projected rushing yards (ranking fifth among QBs), Russell Wilson has multiple ways to bring in points.

    Player Analysis

      • Matt Forte, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 5
      Does Matt Forte Enjoy Fajitas?

      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
      Old Fashioned

      • Keenan Allen, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 25
      Doling Out Nightmares

      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.

    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.
