    Despite an Exciting Set of WRs, Women Who Score Needs Work to Reach Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    While this draft by Women Who Score didn't exactly set the world on fire, it didn't destroy their playoff aspirations either. They are expected to be in the mix for a playoff spot with a projected eighth-place finish in Kick Rocks League at 3-10-0 (1,479 points). With five WRs on the roster, Women Who Score has a star-studded wideout group that's projected to average 152 points this season. The league average is 140. They have one of the most prolific groups of WRs in the league, as they added Demaryius Thomas, Alshon Jeffery, Mike Wallace, and Rueben Randle.

    Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Keeper Summary

    Women Who Score decided to disregard their only keeper spot, instead leaving their fantasy fate solely in the hands of the draft.

    Schedule

    Women Who Score should drop off the grid during Week 9. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a weaker-than-average slate. Corresponding with the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Women Who Score also has the softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Carrying the Load

      Women Who Score has four above-average positions with TE and WR projected to lead the way.

    • May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

      Women Who Score might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Nick Foles) and second-drafted QB (Jay Cutler) have similar seasonal point projections.

    • Officially Mediocre

      While the bottom half of the Women Who Score roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 2), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 11).

    • Team of Champions

      Women Who Score is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams, including Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas, and Alshon Jeffery.

    • You Snooze, You Lose

      While the rest of the league slept on Christine Michael, Women Who Score pounced on him at pick No. 178.

    • Digging Deep

      Christine Michael is owned in only 2% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward Women Who Score for their faith! Or not.

    Player Analysis

      • D. Thomas, WR
      • Round 1, Pick 10
      Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law

      Demaryius Thomas is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 106 projected catches rank second in the league.

      • Julius Thomas, TE
      • Round 2, Pick 15
      A Sizable Target in the Red Zone

      With 8.1 projected TD catches, Julius Thomas ranks third in the NFL among TEs in that category.

      • Alshon Jeffery, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 34
      The Heist Is On

      The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Women Who Score got a steal in snatching Alshon Jeffery in the third round (34th overall pick vs. ADP of 22.1).

      • Reggie Bush, RB
      • Round 4, Pick 39
      If it Ain't Broke

      Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Women Who Score didn't grab their first RB (Reggie Bush) until the fourth round.

      • Nick Foles, QB
      • Round 6, Pick 63
      Was Nick Foles the Best Choice at Pick No. 63?

      Women Who Score apparently thinks so. The Eagles' signal-caller is projected to earn 514 points this year, after putting up 433 last year.

    Best Available

    Women Who Score is projected to have a pair of subpar positions (RB and DEF), but RB is clearly their weakest unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.

      • Jeremy Hill
      • Rank 95, ADP 123
      • Chris Ivory
      • Rank 122, ADP 125
      • James White
      • Rank 127, ADP 125
      • BenJarvus Green-Ellis
      • Rank 192, ADP 118

    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..."
