Beer Wench figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the eighth overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 10-3-0 (1,517 points). With that record, they will likely finish fourth in Kick Rocks League. They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Dez Bryant (second round), Vincent Jackson (fourth round), and Pierre Garcon (fifth round). They put together one of the most prolific groups of RBs in the league, as they added Matt Forte, Giovani Bernard, Donald Brown, and Bernard Pierce.
Beer Wench decided to disregard their only keeper spot, instead leaving their fantasy fate solely in the hands of the draft.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Beer Wench has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the hardest slates. Along with having the third-most demanding overall schedule, Beer Wench also has the toughest first four games of the season.
Beer Wench has four positions that are stronger than league average. While RB, WR, and DEF are projected to be good, TE is the best on Beer Wench.
No Back-Up No Cry
Ignoring roster depth, Beer Wench chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
The Bargain Whisperer
Beer Wench was hunting for steals throughout the draft, snapping up a trio of bargains in the first 9 rounds (Robert Griffin III, Pierre Garcon, and Giovani Bernard).
Take One Play Off and He Burns You
Kenny Stills is a classic deep-ball weapon, ranking fourth among NFL WRs in percentage of receptions over 40 yards (6.2%).
Beer Wench Went All YOLO Here
Grabbing Donald Brown at pick 176 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Brown is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
Does Matt Forte Enjoy Fajitas?
- Matt Forte, RB
- Round 1, Pick 8
Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Forte is projected to rank fourth in the league with 1,698 total yards.
- Dez Bryant, WR
- Round 2, Pick 17
Check that dude for stickum! Dez Bryant figures to be a PPR monster, with an NFL-leading 106 projected catches.
On a Scale of 1 to America
- V. Jackson, WR
- Round 4, Pick 41
How free will Vincent Jackson be in the secondary? He's projected to rack up 1,207 receiving yards this year.
Apparently ADP is Overrated
- M. Bennett, TE
- Round 6, Pick 65
With their sixth-round pick, Beer Wench pulled the trigger. They took Martellus Bennett at pick number 65 despite an ADP of just 118.7 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Was Defense the Best Choice at Pick No. 80?
- Cincinnati, DEF
- Round 7, Pick 80
Beer Wench apparently thinks so. Cincinnati's Defense is projected to get 277 points this year, after putting up 310 last season.
QB and K are expected to be the worst positions for Beer Wench and a potential area of need.
- Johnny Manziel
- Rank 136, ADP 129
- Carson Palmer
- Rank 138, ADP 137
- Dan Carpenter
- Rank 217, ADP 127
- Jay Feely
- Rank 224, ADP 144

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.
