    Edoves's Choice Team Draft Report Card

    Grade

    Despite an Exciting Set of WRs, Edoves's Choice Team Has a Great Team if They Don't Care About Winning

    Draft Summary

    Yikes. Was this on purpose? We'll assume it was and that maybe the GM Edoves's Choice Team was just having an off day. Some work will be required if Edoves's Choice Team wants to finish anywhere other than last. Projections suggest they'll go 1-13-0 (1,233 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Demaryius Thomas (second round), Randall Cobb (fourth round), and Michael Floyd (fifth round). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, Edoves's Choice Team will benefit. They are the best group of WRs in the league.

    Brutal draft. Still, you should nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame. That way, your players will have to live up to the pressure.

    Schedule

    Edoves's Choice Team can chalk up Week 9 as a loss. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have the most challenging schedule. Corresponding with the most grueling overall schedule, Edoves's Choice Team also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Good Luck With That One!

      Edoves's Choice Team will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Michael Floyd), fourth- (Emmanuel Sanders), and fifth-ranked (Eric Decker) wideouts.

    • Checked Out Early

      Edoves's Choice Team didn't exactly wrap up the draft on a high note, ending up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

    • Team of Champions?

      Edoves's Choice Team is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Demaryius Thomas, Matthew Stafford, and Reggie Bush.

    • Defense Wins Championships?

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

    • He Can Catch, Too

      Reggie Bush is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fifth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 501.

    Player Analysis

      • Arian Foster, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 10
      Does Arian Foster Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Foster is projected to rank eighth in the league with 1,606 total yards.

      • D. Thomas, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 11
      The Power of Persuasion

      Now would be a reasonable time for Edoves's Choice Team to encourage the Yahoo Public 391811 League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Demaryius Thomas and his 107 projected catches (ranked second in the NFL).

      • M. Stafford, QB
      • Round 6, Pick 51
      Do You Know if Matthew Stafford is Religious?

      With 308 projected points, Edoves's Choice Team is hoping Stafford will be the answer to their prayers.

      • Jordan Reed, TE
      • Round 7, Pick 70
      Apparently ADP is Overrated

      With their seventh-round pick, Edoves's Choice Team pulled the trigger. They took Jordan Reed at pick number 70 despite an ADP of just 96.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    Best Available

    There are four positions that Edoves's Choice Team could look to upgrade, including K, which looks like their biggest area of need.

    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..."
