Thanks to a successful draft by the obviously skilled GM, Justin's Okay Team turned the not-so-favorable seventh overall pick into a projected finish of first. They're expected to go 11-3-0 (1,373 points) in Yahoo Public 391811 League. With five WRs on the roster, Justin's Okay Team guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 143, their WRs projected average of 144 points won't be much different than the rest of the wideouts around the league. They put together the highest-scoring TE duo in the league, as they have Jimmy Graham and Tyler Eifert.
Justin's Okay Team should use Week 4 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 entire season, they have one of the weakest schedules. In addition to having the third-easiest overall schedule, Justin's Okay Team has the second-softest last four games of the season.
Assessing the Assets
TE is the strongest position for Justin's Okay Team, though DEF and K are also better than the league's average.
This is the American version, folks. Justin's Okay Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.
A Pair of Proven Winners
Justin's Okay Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jimmy Graham and Zac Stacy) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
A Return to Huge Numbers
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 1, Pick 7
Sean Payton's return to the Saints' sideline seemed to work out for Jimmy Graham, who was owned on more championship rosters across Yahoo! than any other TE.
Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law
- B. Marshall, WR
- Round 2, Pick 14
Brandon Marshall is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 92 projected catches rank eighth in the league.
If it Ain't Broke
- Zac Stacy, RB
- Round 3, Pick 27
Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Justin's Okay Team didn't grab their first RB (Zac Stacy) until the third round.
That Just Happened
- M. Crabtree, WR
- Round 5, Pick 47
Why can't I find Michael Crabtree on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round value."
Do You Know if Matt Ryan is Religious?
- Matt Ryan, QB
- Round 6, Pick 54
With 301 projected points, Justin's Okay Team is hoping Ryan will be the answer to their prayers.
RB and QB are expected to be the weakest positions for Justin's Okay Team and a potential area of need.
- Lamar Miller
- Rank 80, ADP 116
- Maurice Jones-Drew
- Rank 82, ADP 110
- Carson Palmer
- Rank 138, ADP 134
- Eli Manning
- Rank 140, ADP 130

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.
