With Multiple Saints, Andy's Awesome Team Has a Great Team if They Don't Care About Winning

Draft Summary

Is someone going to put out that dumpster fire? Oh, whoops, that's not a dumpster fire that's the Andy's Awesome Team roster. Easy mistake with a team that needs this much work. As the roster stands, Andy's Awesome Team is projected to finish ninth in Yahoo Public 391938 League with a record of 3-11-0 (1,461 points). With their first five picks, Andy's Awesome Team focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Russell Wilson (43rd overall), RBs David Johnson (3rd) and Mark Ingram (18th), and WRs Brandin Cooks (23rd) and Sammy Watkins (38th). They put together the best RB duo in the league, as they added Johnson and Ingram to the team.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.

Schedule

Week 5 might require some waiver-wire magic from Andy's Awesome Team. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the toughest schedule. Corresponding with the most grueling overall schedule, Andy's Awesome Team also has the toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Who Dat Nation

    The fantasy hopes of Andy's Awesome Team rest heavily on the fortunes of New Orleans, as they loaded up with four Saints on their roster.

  • Highlight Reel

    Andy's Awesome Team is loaded at RB, but QB isn't too shabby, either.

  • Close to the Vest

    Andy's Awesome Team was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Apparently Andy's Awesome Team missed the point of drafting a back-up defense. In Week 9, both Arizona and Cincinnati will be on bye.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Andy's Awesome Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Dwayne Allen, Andy's Awesome Team pounced on him at pick No. 138.

Player Analysis

    • David Johnson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    Advanced Math

    If Andy's Awesome Team had a nickel for every time David Johnson is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 309 nickels.

    • Mark Ingram, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Traditionalist

    Andy's Awesome Team stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, nabbing David Johnson and Mark Ingram right off the bat.

    • Sammy Watkins, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 38
    169 Excuses to Cheer for Sammy Watkins

    Watkins ranks ninth in the Yahoo Public 391938 League among wideouts with 169 projected fantasy points.

    • Russell Wilson, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 43
    Effective, Efficient, and Elite

    • Donte Moncrief, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 58
    Trigger Happy

    With their sixth-round pick, Andy's Awesome Team pulled the trigger. They drafted Donte Moncrief at pick number 58 despite an ADP of just 101.8 across all Yahoo! leagues.

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..."
