This draft by Captain TBD was like a finely tuned Peyton Manning-led offense, with all the pieces falling into place. Just like Peyton's offense, Captain TBD is expected to score a lot of points this season and finish first in LongDongs League at 10-3-0 (1,564 points).
Captain TBD used all three of their keeper positions, but neglected ball-carriers. Among their keepers, none were RBs. On average, their three keepers are significantly more valuable (by 23.9%) than the average draft picks that they replaced.
Week 9 would be a good opportunity for Captain TBD to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the weakest slates. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, Captain TBD also has the league's second-easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.
Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for Captain TBD, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Jordan Matthews) and fourth-ranked (Will Fuller) wideouts.
A Talented Trio
Captain TBD has three positions on their roster that are stronger than the league's average (WR, QB, and DEF).
Separating the Wheat from the Chaff
At three different positions, Captain TBD picked up projected top-3 players (Antonio Brown, Aaron Rodgers, and Odell Beckham Jr.).
Close to the Vest
Captain TBD was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.
The top half of the Captain TBD roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 2). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).
Team of Champions?
Captain TBD 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: Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr., and Thomas Rawls.
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 9
Captain TBD fully endorses the wideout's quest for 150 receptions in 2016. Shoot for the moon, Mr. Brown. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.
The Heist Is On
- O. Beckham Jr., WR
- Round 2, Pick 21
The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Captain TBD got a steal in snatching Odell Beckham Jr. in the second round (21st overall pick vs. ADP of 2.5).
Do You Know if Aaron Rodgers is Religious?
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 3, Pick 33
With 349 projected points, Captain TBD is hoping Rodgers will be the answer to their prayers.
Wait For It
- Thomas Rawls, RB
- Round 4, Pick 45
Captain TBD held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to snag their "lead back" (Thomas Rawls).
- J. Langford, RB
- Round 5, Pick 57
With their fifth-round pick, Captain TBD pulled the trigger. They drafted Jeremy Langford at pick number 57 despite an ADP of just 90 across all Yahoo! leagues.
While Captain TBD is expected to be weak across three positions, TE is definitely their worst unit and an area of need.
- Eric Ebron
- Rank 136, ADP 136
- Vance McDonald
- Rank 148, ADP 138
- Jordan Cameron
- Rank 154, ADP 135
- Clive Walford
- Rank 160, 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.
