Fueled by Some Early-Round Value Picks, Yeezy Taught Me Looks Like a Playoff Squad

Draft Summary

Yeezy Taught Me took a high draft pick and turned it into a playoff-caliber squad with a projected record of 6-6-1 (1,404). They should be able to roll through most of LongDongs League on their way to a projected sixth-place finish.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.

Keeper Summary

Yeezy Taught Me used all three of their keeper spots, but neglected ball-carriers. Among their keepers, none were RBs. From an ADP perspective, their top-ranked keeper (A.J. Green) is less valuable than a first-round draft choice. Overall, the three keepers on Yeezy Taught Me are projected to be substantially less productive (by 15.9%) than the draft picks they replaced.


Yeezy Taught Me should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why Greenland is ice and Iceland is green. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. Corresponding with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Yeezy Taught Me also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Best Days are Behind Them?

    With four players projected to score significantly fewer points this season, Yeezy Taught Me will be hoping the experts are wrong.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Yeezy Taught Me will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 11, as their only K (Brandon McManus) and only DEF (Denver) will both be on bye that week.

  • Root, Root, Root for the Home Team

    Yeezy Taught Me is a believer in the hopes of the New England Patriots this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.

  • AARP Card's in the Mail

    With an average of 8.9 years of NFL experience, Yeezy Taught Me is the team most likely to have a player qualify for a senior citizen discount.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the Yeezy Taught Me roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 3). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 11).

  • Team of Champions

    Yeezy Taught Me is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including Gary Barnidge, Brandon Marshall, and Tom Brady.

    • Round 2, Pick 16
    Like Marino in His Prime

    Drew Brees is projected to lead the NFL in both passing yards (4,799) and passing TDs (31.3).

    • Gary Barnidge, TE
    • Round 3, Pick 28
    Taking a Chance

    With their third-round pick, Yeezy Taught Me threw caution to the wind. They took Gary Barnidge at pick number 28 despite an ADP of 97.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 40
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Yeezy Taught Me got a steal in snatching Brandon Marshall in the fourth round (40th overall pick vs. ADP of 16.3).

    • Tom Brady, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 52
    Let Me Check it Again

    Why can't I find Tom Brady on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late-round flier."

Best Available

While Yeezy Taught Me is projected to have three subpar positions, RB is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.

    • Kenneth Dixon
    • Rank 157, ADP 127
    • Jordan Howard
    • Rank 159, ADP 129

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..."
