Erect Dicker was set up perfectly to draft a playoff-caliber team with the first overall pick. Instead of using that to their advantage, however, they chose to go a different route that's geared more towards losing. They're only projected to finish ninth in Kick Rocks League with a mark of 3-10-0 (1,473 points). With their first five picks, Erect Dicker focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Colin Kaepernick (48th overall), RBs LeSean McCoy (1st) and Doug Martin (25th), and WRs Julio Jones (24th) and Keenan Allen (49th). They put together the lowest-scoring TE tandem in the league, as they have Ladarius Green and Dwayne Allen.
Erect Dicker decided to disregard their only keeper spot, instead leaving their fantasy fate solely in the hands of the draft.
While Week 9 has the most players on bye for Erect Dicker (four), Week 4 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Erect Dicker has the opportunity to finish the season on a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Maybe You Should Add Tony Gonzalez While You're At It
Erect Dicker must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 10, both Ladarius Green and Dwayne Allen will be on bye.
Carrying the Load
Erect Dicker has a trio of above-average positions leading the way (RB, DEF, and K).
The Sky's the Limit

It appears that Erect Dicker likes to gamble, as they took chances on six volatile selections.
Andre Williams and Dwayne Allen are a couple of late-round fliers with upside for Erect Dicker.
Andre Williams is owned in only 5% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Erect Dicker has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.
Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Fajitas?
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 1, Pick 1
Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. McCoy is projected to rank seventh in the league with 1,626 all-purpose yards.
The Power of Persuasion
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 2, Pick 24

Feed Thy Beast
- Doug Martin, RB
- Round 3, Pick 25
Doug Martin will get the ball early and often, projected to finish seventh in the league with 299 touches.
Time to Sign Up for Andy Behrens' Fantasy Camp

- Round 4, Pick 48
Colin Kaepernick isn't projected to be in the NFL's top-15 in either passing yards (26th with 3,238) or TDs (17th with 22.7), but Erect Dicker still snagged him with the 48th pick.
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 5, Pick 49
Erect Dicker may have found a gem in the fifth round, grabbing Keenan Allen (49th overall pick vs. ADP of 29.9).
Erect Dicker has three positions where an upgrade could be beneficial, with TE being the most immediate need.

- Garrett Graham
- Rank 163, ADP 137
- Tim Wright
- Rank 174, ADP 139

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.
