Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, Mike Mo's Fine Team Dominated This Draft

Draft Summary

Mike Mo's Fine Team took the second overall pick and wove it into fantasy gold with an expected finish of first in Dy Nasty League. Their 11-2-0 projected record is no joke and opponents will need to pull out all the stops if they hope to knock off Mike Mo's Fine Team. They were quick to snag signal-callers, using two of their first four picks to grab QBs Robert Griffin III (second round) and Andy Dalton (fourth round). They have one of the best groups of RBs in the league, as they added Jamaal Charles, Alfred Morris, Ryan Mathews, and Joique Bell.

With a draft like that, you might as well make it official. Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Mike Mo's Fine Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have an easier-than-average slate. Along with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Mike Mo's Fine Team.

Draft Notes

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    At three different positions, Mike Mo's Fine Team picked up projected top-two players (Jamaal Charles, Dez Bryant, and Carolina).

  • The Bargain Whisperer

    Mike Mo's Fine Team was hunting for deals throughout the draft, snapping up six steals in the first 12 rounds (including Carolina, Ryan Mathews, and Vincent Jackson).

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Mike Mo's Fine Team grabbed a sleeper in Jeremy Hill with pick No. 162.

  • A Stretch of the Imagination

    Grabbing Kirk Cousins at pick 179 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Cousins is owned on just a handful of teams across all Yahoo! leagues.

  • This Mr. Irrelevant gets No Parade

    In terms of projected points, the choice of Mike Tolbert was the weakest pick of the final round. You had one last chance and you blew it, Mike Mo's Fine Team.

Player Analysis

    • Jamaal Charles, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    Does Jamaal Charles Enjoy Fajitas?

    Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Charles is projected to rank second in the league with 1,723 all-purpose yards.

    • R. Griffin III, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 19
    Time to Sign Up for Andy Behrens' Fantasy Camp

    Robert Griffin III isn't projected to be in the NFL's top-15 in either passing yards (16th with 3,958) or TDs (16th with 23.4), but Mike Mo's Fine Team still snagged him with the 19th pick.

    • Dez Bryant, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 22
    Bryant is More of a Full-Service Guy

    Rodney Dangerfield claimed he once went to a massage parlor that was self-service. With 260 projected fantasy points this year, Dez Bryant should serve Mike Mo's Fine Team a little better than that.

    • Alfred Morris, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 42
    Earning His Keep

    Alfred Morris is expected to finish sixth in the NFL with 8.8 rushing TDs and fifth with 1,147 rushing yards.

    • Victor Cruz, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 59
    Was Victor Cruz Worth it at Pick No. 59?

    Mike Mo's Fine Team sure hopes so. The Giants' WR is projected to put up 195 points this year, after getting 158 last season.

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..."
