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.
BLUE HAIR'S decided to disregard their only keeper spot, instead leaving their fantasy fate solely in the hands of the draft.
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.
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.
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.
BLUE HAIR'S's Stud Signal-Caller
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 1, Pick 6
Drew Brees is projected to rack up 657 points this year, enough to rank second among all QBs.
Is His Jersey Made of Honey?
- DeMarco Murray, RB
- Round 2, Pick 19
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
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.
Better Lucky Than Good?
- C. Patterson, WR
- Round 4, Pick 43
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.
A Tight End with Some Wheels
- Jason Witten, TE
- Round 5, Pick 54
With a projection of 871 yards through the air, Jason Witten ranks third in the NFL among TEs in receiving yards.
RB, the only below-average position on BLUE HAIR'S, is one area that could potentially be upgraded.
- Jeremy Hill
- Rank 95, ADP 123
- Chris Ivory
- Rank 122, ADP 125
- James White
- Rank 127, ADP 125
- BenJarvus Green-Ellis

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.
