    Projected to Finish Fourth, keyah's Team Is Loaded with Talent

    Draft Summary

    Putting together a playoff-caliber roster, keyah's Team didn't break any records with this draft, but they put together a quality team that will be tough to match up against. Looking at their schedule, they figure to reach the playoffs with a 9-5-0 (1,364) record and fourth-place finish in Yahoo Public 391811 League. They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Drew Brees (18th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (3rd) and Rashad Jennings (38th), and WRs Jordy Nelson (23rd) and Roddy White (43rd). They landed the top QB pair in the league, as they have Brees and Tom Brady on the roster.

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

    Schedule

    keyah's Team should use Week 10 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 six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a harder-than-average schedule. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for keyah's Team.

    Draft Notes

    • Great Idea, Poor Execution

      keyah's Team might need to hit the waiver wire in Week 9, as their No. 1- (Jordy Nelson), No. 2- (Roddy White) and No. 5-ranked (Sammy Watkins) WRs will all be resting that week.

    • keyah's Team must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 10, both Adam Vinatieri and Nick Novak will be on bye.

    • How Much Tread's Left on the Tires

      With an average of 7.9 years of NFL experience, keyah's Team is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

      keyah's Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

    • It's How You Finish

      keyah's Team made every other squad look silly after some amazing halftime adjustments, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

    • A Dominating Duo

      keyah's Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Drew Brees and Jordy Nelson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    Player Analysis

      • A. Peterson, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 3
      Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Peterson is projected to rank second in the league with 1,857 total yards.

      • Drew Brees, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 18
      Like a Prancing Unicorn

      Drew Brees is a fantasy dream. He's projected to finish second in the NFL in both passing TDs (37.9) and passing yards (5,277).

      • Jordy Nelson, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 23
      Haters Gonna Hate

      The rest of Yahoo Public 391811 League overlooked a gem, and keyah's Team made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Jordy Nelson.

      • R. Jennings, RB
      • Round 4, Pick 38
      Apparently ADP is Overrated

      With their fourth-round pick, keyah's Team pulled the trigger. They took Rashad Jennings at pick number 38 despite an ADP of just 63.8 across all Yahoo! leagues.

      • Torrey Smith, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 58
      Was Torrey Smith the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 58?

      keyah's Team apparently thinks so. The Ravens' wideout is projected to get 145 points this year, just a bit better than last year.

      • Dwayne Allen

    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..."
