    Led by a Stellar WR Corps, BLUE HAIR'S Has a Loaded Roster

    Draft Summary

    Corresponding with a solid draft slot (sixth overall), BLUE HAIR'S had a stellar showing. With a mark of 10-3-0 (1,652 points), they're projected to finish second in Kick Rocks League. They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Drew Brees (6th overall), RB DeMarco Murray (19th), WR Cordarrelle Patterson (43rd), and TE Jason Witten (54th) within the first five rounds. They have the top WR tandem in the league, as they added Patterson and Julian Edelman to their fantasy roster.

    With a draft like that, you might as well make it official. Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Keeper Summary

    BLUE HAIR'S decided to disregard their only keeper spot, instead leaving their fantasy fate solely in the hands of the draft.

    Schedule

    Week 10 is not looking like a fun one for fantasy football. BLUE HAIR'S should look into the joys of scrapbooking, or bird-watching, or just keep BLUE HAIR'S away from the TV. It won't be pretty. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the least challenging slates. BLUE HAIR'S could run into an early buzz saw, as the first four games of their season are projected to be more difficult than the league average.

    Draft Notes

    • Assessing the Assets

      QB is the strongest position for BLUE HAIR'S, though WR and K are also better than the league's average.

    • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

      At three different positions, BLUE HAIR'S picked up projected top-3 players (Cordarrelle Patterson, Drew Brees, and Dan Bailey).

    • Close to the Vest

      BLUE HAIR'S was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

    • A Pair of Proven Winners

      BLUE HAIR'S has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Drew Brees and DeMarco Murray) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    • Super Sleepers

      Levine Toilolo and Cody Latimer are a couple of late-round fliers with upside for BLUE HAIR'S.

    • BLUE HAIR'S Went All YOLO Here

      Grabbing Levine Toilolo at pick 150 was just a bit of a stretch. Toilolo is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

    Player Analysis

      • Drew Brees, QB
      • Round 1, Pick 6
      BLUE HAIR'S's Stud Signal-Caller

      Drew Brees is projected to rack up 657 points this year, enough to rank second among all QBs.

      • DeMarco Murray, RB
      • Round 2, Pick 19
      Is His Jersey Made of Honey?

      Because the projections for DeMarco Murray are sweet. He's projected to be the seventh-best RB in the league this season.

      • Bishop Sankey, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 30
      Trigger Happy

      With their third-round pick, BLUE HAIR'S pulled the trigger. They drafted Bishop Sankey at pick number 30 despite an ADP of just 74.7 across all Yahoo! leagues.

      • C. Patterson, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 43
      Better Lucky Than Good?

      The rest of Kick Rocks League overlooked a gem, and BLUE HAIR'S made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Cordarrelle Patterson.

      • Jason Witten, TE
      • Round 5, Pick 54
      A Tight End with Some Wheels

      With a projection of 871 yards through the air, Jason Witten ranks third in the NFL among TEs in receiving yards.

    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..."
