Beauty-N-D-BeastMode Draft Report Card


Despite an Exciting Set of WRs, Beauty-N-D-BeastMode Needs Some Help

Draft Summary

Beauty-N-D-BeastMode got saddled with a late draft position (eighth overall) and didn't respond. The poor draft slot will have to serve as the excuse as to why they are projected to land in 11th place in SigEp AVC 1 League with a record of 4-9-0 (2,056 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Demaryius Thomas (first round), A.J. Green (second round), and Golden Tate (fourth round). They put together the lowest-scoring group of RBs in the league, as they have Mark Ingram, Doug Martin, Roy Helu Jr., and Ronnie Hillman on their roster.

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


While Week 8 has the most players on bye for Beauty-N-D-BeastMode (four), Week 7 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the most challenging schedules. In addition to having the second-most grueling overall schedule, Beauty-N-D-BeastMode also has the most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Show Some ID

    Beauty-N-D-BeastMode isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 4.4 years of NFL experience.

  • A Dominating Duo

    Beauty-N-D-BeastMode has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Demaryius Thomas and Cody Parkey) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Take One Play Off and He Burns You

    Terrance Williams is a classic deep-ball weapon, ranking fourth among NFL WRs in percentage of receptions over 40 yards (7.4%).

  • Did Stretch Armstrong Make That Pick?

    Grabbing Roy Helu Jr. at pick 176 was definitely a reach. Helu Jr. is owned on just a handful of teams across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Round 3, Pick 32
    If it Ain't Broke

    Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Beauty-N-D-BeastMode didn't grab their first RB (Mark Ingram) until the third round.

    • Doug Martin, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 56
    It Was a Learning Experience

    Hey, remember that time Beauty-N-D-BeastMode took Doug Martin WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Martin was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • Ryan Tannehill, QB
    • Round 7, Pick 80
    Was Ryan Tannehill the Best Choice at Pick No. 80?

    Beauty-N-D-BeastMode apparently thinks so. The Dolphins' signal-caller is projected to score 327 points this year, nearly identical to his total last year.

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..."
