Picking 15th, Sayde is here!!! built a team that probably isn't even worth talking about. It wouldn't be fair to give the good teams a recap and not the bad ones, though, so here goes. They are expected to finish 14th in Sayde's First Football Season League with a record of 3-10-0 (1,095 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Ben Roethlisberger (47th overall), RB C.J. Anderson (15th), WR Nelson Agholor (79th), and TE Greg Olsen (50th) within the first five rounds. They landed the bottom WR duo in the league, as they added Agholor and Michael Crabtree.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Sayde is here!!! has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the most challenging slate. In addition to having the most demanding overall schedule, Sayde is here!!! has the most difficult last four games of the season.
Sayde is here!!! is loaded at RB, but TE isn't too shabby, either.
Tread Left on the Tires
With an average of 7.2 years of NFL experience, Sayde is here!!! is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.
Sayde is here!!! hedged their bets by scooping up Ronnie Hillman in the 10th round to back up C.J. Anderson, his Broncos teammate (a first-round selection).
Sayde is here!!! got off to a sluggish start, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.
Sayde is here!!! elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
A Pair of Proven Winners
Sayde is here!!! has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (C.J. Anderson and Justin Forsett) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
- C.J. Anderson, RB
- Round 1, Pick 15
If Sayde is here!!! had a nickel for every time C.J. Anderson is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 303 nickels.
- Justin Forsett, RB
- Round 2, Pick 18
Sayde is here!!! stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, nabbing C.J. Anderson and Justin Forsett right off the bat.
- B. Roethlisberger, QB
- Round 3, Pick 47
Roethlisberger wound up tied with Drew Brees wound for the most passing yards in the league last year, though Big Ben got to 4,952 with 51 fewer passing attempts.
Giddy for Greg
- Greg Olsen, TE
- Round 4, Pick 50
Across all Yahoo! leagues, only one TE (Rob Gronkowski) appeared more often on first-place rosters than Olsen last year.
Rethinking That One
- Nelson Agholor, WR
- Round 5, Pick 79
While drafted 79th overall, Nelson Agholor isn't projected among the NFL's top-30 in either receiving TDs (33rd with 5.4) or receiving yards (46th with 817).
Sayde is here!!! has four positions where an upgrade could be beneficial, with K being the most immediate need.
- Caleb Sturgis
- Rank 227, ADP 146
- Mike Nugent
- Rank 242, ADP 130
- Nick Novak
- Rank 247, ADP 131

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.
