Is someone going to put out that dumpster fire? Oh, whoops, that's not a dumpster fire that's the Team Funny roster. Easy mistake with a team that needs this much work. As the roster stands, Team Funny is projected to finish ninth in BadNewzKennels/Fantasy League! League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,547 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Brandon Marshall (second round), Larry Fitzgerald (fourth round), and Marques Colston (fifth round). They have the worst TE pair in the league, as they have Zach Ertz and Ladarius Green on their team.
While Week 10 has the most players on bye for Team Funny (five), Week 9 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the most challenging slates. Along with the second-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Team Funny.
A Pair of Proven Winners
Team Funny has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Matt Forte and DeSean Jackson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
In terms of projected points, the choice of Greg Jennings was the strongest pick of the final round. Savvy move there, Team Funny.
Does Matt Forte Enjoy Fajitas?
- Matt Forte, RB
- Round 1, Pick 5
Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Forte is projected to rank fourth in the league with 1,700 all-purpose yards.
Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law
- B. Marshall, WR
- Round 2, Pick 16
Brandon Marshall is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 94 projected catches rank fifth in the league.
Not Afraid to Scramble
- R. Griffin III, QB
- Round 3, Pick 25
With 585 projected rushing yards (ranked third among QBs), Robert Griffin III has multiple ways to bring in points.
Milk Was a Bad Choice
- M. Jones-Drew, RB
- Round 6, Pick 56
And so was drafting Maurice Jones-Drew, the weakest value of the round.
- DeSean Jackson, WR
- Round 7, Pick 65
If other Yahoo! users are right, Team Funny got a steal in the seventh round, when they selected DeSean Jackson (65th overall pick vs. ADP of 47.4).
While Team Funny is expected to be weak across three positions, TE is definitely their weakest unit and an area of need.
- Charles Clay
- Rank 119, ADP 123
- Martellus Bennett
- Rank 120, ADP 118
- Heath Miller
- Rank 133, ADP 133
- Antonio Gates
- Rank 146, ADP 126

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.
