You're Welcome put together an underrated roster that might not dominate week in and week out, but will be firmly entrenched in a playoff spot by season's end. They're projected to finish the season with a 9-4-0 (1,960) record in Dy Nasty League, which will be good enough for fourth. They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Andrew Luck (1st overall), RB Doug Martin (41st), WR Jordy Nelson (40th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (20th) within the first five rounds. They built one of the bottom groups of RBs in the league, as they have Martin, C.J. Spiller, Shane Vereen, and Andre Williams for their rotation.
You're Welcome should do pretty much anything other than watch football during Week 9. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for You're Welcome.
TE or Bust
TE is the only above-average position group for You're Welcome.
The Sky's the Limit
With seven players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, You're Welcome hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.
Root, Root, Root for the Home Team
You're Welcome 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.
The First Step is Admitting You Have a Problem
It appears that You're Welcome enjoys gambling, as they took chances on 11 "high-risk" picks.
The Best Player Plays
You're Welcome is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 3.7 years of NFL experience.
Checked Out Early
You're Welcome 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.
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 1, Pick 1
Andrew Luck will be making it rain on defenses this year, and is forecasted to finish 10th in the NFL with 4,069 passing yards.
Doling Out Nightmares
- Rob Gronkowski, TE
- Round 2, Pick 20
Rob Gronkowski will look to haunt the dreams of opposing corners, as he's projected to finish seventh in the NFL with 9.8 receiving TDs.
Do You Know if Nick Foles is Religious?
- Nick Foles, QB
- Round 3, Pick 21
With 355 projected points, You're Welcome is hoping Foles will be the answer to their prayers.
The Power of Persuasion
- Jordy Nelson, WR
- Round 4, Pick 40
Now would be a reasonable time for You're Welcome to encourage the Dy Nasty League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Jordy Nelson and his 87 projected catches (ranked ninth in the NFL).
How Rebellious of You
- Doug Martin, RB
- Round 5, Pick 41
You're Welcome said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fifth round to pick up their first (Doug Martin).
While You're Welcome is projected to have three subpar positions, RB is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.
- Fred Jackson
- Rank 103, ADP 118
- James White
- Rank 127, ADP 125
- BenJarvus Green-Ellis
- Rank 192, ADP 117

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..."
