    BT's PhootBall'rs Draft Report Card

    In Spite of Some Early-Round Value Picks, BT's PhootBall'rs Won't be Writing to Mom About This Draft

    Draft Summary

    Despite selecting in the top half of the first round (fourth overall), BT's PhootBall'rs might as well have been blindly heaving darts at the draft board to decide their picks. Opponents are going to enjoy beating this team, which is projected to finish eighth in Dy Nasty League with a record of 4-9-0 (1,883 points). With their first five picks, BT's PhootBall'rs aimed for balance, selecting QB Colin Kaepernick (17th overall), RBs LeSean McCoy (4th) and Marshawn Lynch (44th), and WRs Randall Cobb (24th) and Keenan Allen (37th). They ended up with the bottom QB tandem in the league, as they have Kaepernick and Geno Smith on the roster.

    Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, BT's PhootBall'rs has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a weaker-than-average slate. BT's PhootBall'rs has the opportunity to start and finish with a flurry, as both the first four games and final four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

    Draft Notes

    • A Dominating Pair

      TE and RB are both projected to be really solid units for BT's PhootBall'rs.

    • Golden Handcuff

      BT's PhootBall'rs hedged their bets by scooping up Chris Polk in the 19th round to back up LeSean McCoy, his Eagles teammate (a first-round selection).

    • A Pair of Proven Winners

      BT's PhootBall'rs has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (LeSean McCoy and Knowshon Moreno) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    • The Bargain Whisperer

      BT's PhootBall'rs was hunting for deals throughout the draft, snapping up four steals in the first 12 rounds (including San Francisco, Marshawn Lynch, and Vernon Davis).

    • A Big Target for the QB

      Jason Witten ranks fifth in the Dy Nasty League among TEs with 158 projected fantasy points.

    • A Stretch of the Imagination

      Grabbing Chris Givens at pick 177 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Givens is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

      • Round 4, Pick 37
      Doling Out Nightmares

      • Round 5, Pick 44
      Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

    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..."
