I♡TightEnds Draft Report Card


Despite an Exciting Set of WRs, I♡TightEnds Needs Help

Draft Summary

I♡TightEnds isn't the best team in the league, but they aren't the worst, and there is something to be said for that. After selecting fourth overall, they are projected to finish in fifth in MB's Misfits League at 8-6-0 (2,078 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Julio Jones (second round), Randall Cobb (third round), and Brandin Cooks (fourth round). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, I♡TightEnds will benefit. They are the top group of WRs in the league.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


While Week 10 has the most players on bye for I♡TightEnds (three), Week 9 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-difficult-than-average schedule. Along with having the third-most grueling overall schedule, I♡TightEnds has the second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Senior Citizen Discount

    With an average of 7.6 years of NFL experience, I♡TightEnds is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, I♡TightEnds chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).

  • A Big Target for the QB

    Jason Witten ranks fifth in the MB's Misfits League among TEs with 115 projected fantasy points.

Player Analysis

    • Marshawn Lynch, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Feed Thy Beast

    Marshawn Lynch will get the ball early and often, projected to finish fourth in the league with 313 touches.

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    Hopping for Julio

    Jones was the lone NFL player to log 30 catches of at least 20 yards last season, and only Odell Beckham, Jr. averaged more receiving yards per game in 2014.

    • Randall Cobb, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 20
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of MB's Misfits League overlooked a gem, and I♡TightEnds made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Randall Cobb.

    • Brandin Cooks, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 29
    181 Excuses to Cheer for Brandin Cooks

    Cooks ranks 10th in the MB's Misfits League among wideouts with 181 projected fantasy points.

    • Russell Wilson, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 36
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Russell Wilson, the weakest value of the round.

Best Available

I♡TightEnds is projected to have a pair of subpar positions (QB and K), but QB is clearly their worst unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.

    • Cam Newton
    • Rank 73, ADP 66
    • Matthew Stafford
    • Rank 85, ADP 95
    • Teddy Bridgewater
    • Rank 103, ADP 119

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..."
