Collusion might be the only way to stop StickeyFingers this year, as they are projected to finish with a record of 11-2-0; good enough for first in Phi Mu Dellta 16-17 League. They honed in on wide receivers early, using their top three selections to snag Antonio Brown (2nd overall), Julian Edelman (23rd), and T.Y. Hilton (26th). A lot will be expected of this group, as they are the top group of WRs in the league.
StickeyFingers used their only keeper spot to hold on to Antonio Brown (1.1 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is as valuable as a draft pick in the top half of the first round.
StickeyFingers should use Week 5 to finally read War and Peace. Anything that isn't following their fantasy football team. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the weakest slates. Along with the second-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for StickeyFingers.
This is the American version, folks. StickeyFingers elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.
Was That Good for you, Phi Mu Dellta 16-17 League?
By racking up the most projected points in the league during both the first and second halves of the draft, StickeyFingers established itself as a fantasy contender.
A Dominating Pair
StickeyFingers has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Antonio Brown and Gary Barnidge) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
By choosing only a single TE (Gary Barnidge) and DEF (Kansas City), StickeyFingers elected to add depth elsewhere on the roster.
Gary the Great
Drafting for last year's results is risky, but Barnidge did rank second among TEs for targets (125), third for receptions (79), fourth for yardage (1,043), and fourth for TDs (nine).
Davante Adams is owned in only 2% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) StickeyFingers has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 2
With a grip that would make Spider-Man jealous, Antonio Brown has serious value in all PPR leagues. He's projected to catch an NFL-leading 133 balls this year.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Julian Edelman, WR
- Round 2, Pick 23
Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Julian Edelman had less value than any other pick of the round.
How Rebellious of You
- Matt Forte, RB
- Round 4, Pick 47
StickeyFingers said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (Matt Forte).
- Russell Wilson, QB
- Round 5, Pick 50
If other Yahoo! users are right, StickeyFingers got a steal in the fifth round, when they selected Russell Wilson (50th overall pick vs. ADP of 34.7).
Taking a Chance
- S. Shepard, WR
- Round 6, Pick 71
With their sixth-round pick, StickeyFingers threw caution to the wind. They took Sterling Shepard at pick number 71 despite an ADP of 101.9 across all Yahoo! leagues.
If StickeyFingers is looking to make a roster move, RB is a position they could look to upgrade first.
- Jordan Howard
- Rank 181, ADP 127
- Darren McFadden
- Rank 182, ADP 116
- Kenneth Dixon
- Rank 183, ADP 127

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.
