Led by a Stellar WR Corps, drew's Team Will Be a Tough Out

Draft Summary

Picking late (10th overall), drew's Team did what they could with what they were given. While this team isn't a juggernaut by any means, it's a team capable of reaching the playoffs if the chips fall their way. They are expected to finish third in Dy Nasty with a record of 9-4-0 (1,995 points). They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Julio Jones (second round), Alshon Jeffery (third round), and Larry Fitzgerald (fifth round). This group will have to produce in order for drew's Team to have a good season, as they are the best group of WRs in the league.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

drew's Team 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 five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have the softest schedule. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, drew's Team also has the league's easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    drew's Team is stacked at TE, but RB isn't too shabby, either.

  • Cleveland Browns Fan?

    drew's Team is a believer in the hopes of the Cleveland Browns this season, grabbing a couple of players on that team sooner than their ADPs might suggest.

  • Team of Champions?

    drew's Team 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: Jimmy Graham, Alshon Jeffery, and Josh Gordon.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    drew's Team nabbed a sleeper in Derek Carr with pick No. 191.

  • Bargain Shopper

    With three steals in the first 12 rounds (Adrian Peterson, Chris Johnson, and Larry Fitzgerald), drew's Team made some shrewd moves.

  • A Stretch of the Imagination

    Grabbing Derek Carr at pick 191 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Carr is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Jimmy Graham, TE
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    Is He a Tight End or a Wide Receiver?

    Jimmy Graham was owned on more championship teams across Yahoo! than any other TE in 2013.

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 11
    The Power of Persuasion

    Now would be a reasonable time for drew's Team to encourage the Dy Nasty League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Julio Jones and his 105 projected catches (ranked third in the NFL).

    • Alshon Jeffery, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 30
    216 Excuses to Cheer for Alshon Jeffery

    Jeffery ranks seventh in the Dy Nasty League among wideouts with 216 projected fantasy points.

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 31
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Dy Nasty League overlooked a gem, and drew's Team made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Adrian Peterson.

    • L. Fitzgerald, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 50
    Defensive Coordinators Plan Specifically for Fitzgerald

    Larry Fitzgerald is expected to reach paydirt 8.1 times, placing him 10th in the NFL in projected receiving TDs.

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..."
