    Led by a Talented WR Corps, flo's Team Has Great Shot at Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    flo's Team parlayed a solid draft slot (second overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 10-4-0 (1,378 points), they're projected to finish third in Yahoo Public 391811 League. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Aaron Rodgers (22nd overall), RBs LeSean McCoy (2nd) and Bishop Sankey (39th), and WRs Julio Jones (19th) and Andre Johnson (42nd). They ended up with the best group of WRs in the league, as they added Jones, Johnson and Julian Edelman for their rotation.

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

    Schedule

    flo's Team should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why is there only one word for thesaurus? That's still better time spent than checking fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the softest schedules. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, flo's Team also has the softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Close to the Vest

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

    • Nearly There

      The top half of the flo's Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 2). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 8).

    • Big D

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

    • Don't Get Too Defensive Over This

      But flo's Team drafted Denver with the 82nd pick, even though their ADP is only 105.5 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    Player Analysis

      • LeSean McCoy, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 2
      Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

      Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. McCoy is ranked 10th in the league with 1,546 all-purpose yards.

      • Julio Jones, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 19
      The Power of Persuasion

      Now would be a reasonable time for flo's Team to encourage the Yahoo Public 391811 League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Julio Jones and his 105 projected catches (ranked third in the NFL).

      • Aaron Rodgers, QB
      • Round 3, Pick 22
      A Super Duper Signal-Caller

      Aaron Rodgers is projected to rack up 325 points this year, enough to rank third among all QBs.

      • Andre Johnson, WR
      • Round 5, Pick 42
      On a Scale of 1 to America

      How free will Andre Johnson be in the secondary? He's projected to rack up 1,184 receiving yards this year.

      • Julian Edelman, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 59
      Was the 59th Pick the Right Time for Julian Edelman?

      flo's Team apparently believes it is. The Patriots' wide receiver is projected to get 148 points this year, just a bit better than last year.

    Best Available

    flo's Team has four positions where an upgrade could be beneficial, with TE being the most immediate need.

      • Dwayne Allen
      • Rank 178, ADP 136
      • Owen Daniels
      • Rank 182, ADP 123
      • Jermichael Finley

    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..."
