    Led by a Stellar WR Corps, Ant's Awesome Team Has Legit Shot at Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    Ant's Awesome Team put together an underrated roster that might not dominate week in and week out, but will be firmly entrenched in a playoff spot by season's end. They're projected to finish the season with a 6-7-0 (1,949) record in Dy Nasty League, which will be good enough for fifth. They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Calvin Johnson (first round), Brandon Marshall (third round), and Michael Crabtree (fourth round). A lot will be expected of this group, as they are the best WR combo 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

    Ant's Awesome Team can chalk up Week 10 as a loss. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a harder-than-average slate. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Ant's Awesome Team.

    Draft Notes

    • Carrying the Load

      Ant's Awesome Team has four above-average positions with RB and QB projected to lead the way.

    • Drink Plenty of Milk

      With an average of 7.1 years of NFL experience, Ant's Awesome Team has the greatest chance of losing a player to osteoporosis.

    • A Pair of Proven Winners

      Ant's Awesome Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    • Biggest Steal

      Ant's Awesome Team may have found a gem in the 10th round, grabbing Reggie Bush (98th overall pick vs. ADP of 65).

    • He Can Catch, Too

      Reggie Bush is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fourth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 513.

    • A Stretch of the Imagination

      Grabbing Brian Quick at pick 198 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Quick is owned on just a handful of teams across all Yahoo! leagues.

    Player Analysis

      • Calvin Johnson, WR
      • Round 1, Pick 3
      Meeting His Expectations

      Often the only WR taken in the first round in 2013, Megatron lived up to the billing and was owned on more playoff teams across Yahoo! than any other wideout.

      • Tom Brady, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 18
      Ant's Awesome Team's Stud Signal-Caller

      Tom Brady is projected to rack up 352 points this year, enough to rank sixth among all QBs.

      • B. Marshall, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 23
      The Power of Persuasion

      Now would be a reasonable time for Ant's Awesome Team to encourage the Dy Nasty League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Brandon Marshall and his 93 projected catches (ranked fifth in the NFL).

      • M. Crabtree, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 38
      Rethinking That One?

      Despite being an above-average player at his position, Michael Crabtree was the weakest value pick of the round.

      • Arian Foster, RB
      • Round 5, Pick 43
      If it Ain't Broke

      Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Ant's Awesome Team didn't grab their first RB (Arian Foster) until the fifth round.

    Best Available

    Ant's Awesome Team could potentially upgrade DEF and TE, but DEF is the position they'll want to focus on first.

      • Cincinnati Defanse
      • Rank 187, ADP 80
      • Chicago Defanse
      • Rank 212, ADP 122

    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..."
