Playoffs?! lilgrizzlyadams is projected to finish in 10th-place in league of greatness League with a 1-12-0 (1,523 points) record and you want to talk about playoffs?! lilgrizzlyadams should just hope they can win a few games, let alone reach the playoffs. They went with the SMU "Pony Express" draft strategy, loading up on three tailbacks in the first five rounds, selecting Alfred Morris (third round), Reggie Bush (fourth round), and C.J. Spiller (fifth round). They put together one of the best groups of WRs in the league, as they have Calvin Johnson, Marques Colston, Eric Decker, and Rueben Randle on their team.
lilgrizzlyadams might as well plan a vacation for Week 9. Their top three projected scorers (Aaron Rodgers, Jay Cutler and Calvin Johnson) will have a bye week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the toughest schedule. Along with the most taxing overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for lilgrizzlyadams.
WR or Bust
Unfortunately, WR is the only strong position on lilgrizzlyadams. Fortunately, there's always next year.
New York Jets Fan?
lilgrizzlyadams reached twice to draft a New York Jets player.
Going Out with a Whimper
lilgrizzlyadams didn't end the night the way they might have liked, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
A Dominating Duo
lilgrizzlyadams has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, lilgrizzlyadams chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
If other Yahoo! users are right, lilgrizzlyadams got a steal in the 10th round, when they selected Marques Colston (96th overall pick vs. ADP of 79).
The Standard by Which All Others are Measured
- Calvin Johnson, WR
- Round 1, Pick 5
Often the lone wideout taken in the first round in 2013, Megatron lived up to the expectations and was owned on more playoff teams across Yahoo! than any other WR.
Rethinking That One?
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 2, Pick 16
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Aaron Rodgers was the weakest value pick of the round.
If it Ain't Broke
- Alfred Morris, RB
- Round 3, Pick 25
Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, lilgrizzlyadams didn't grab their first RB (Alfred Morris) until the third round.
A Versatile Combination
- Reggie Bush, RB
- Round 4, Pick 36
Reggie Bush can hurt opponents with his hands as well as his feet. He ranks fourth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 514.
Was the 56th Pick the Right Time for Jay Cutler?
- Jay Cutler, QB
- Round 6, Pick 56
lilgrizzlyadams apparently believes it is. The Bears' quarterback is projected to put up 331 points this year, after only netting 219 last season.
There are five positions that lilgrizzlyadams could look to upgrade, including TE, which looks like their biggest area of need.
- Heath Miller
- Rank 160, ADP 134
- Garrett Graham
- Rank 163, ADP 137
- Tim Wright
- Rank 174, ADP 139
- Owen Daniels
- Rank 182, ADP 122

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.
