    jh's Official Team Draft Report Card

    B-
    Grade

    With a Projected Finish of Fifth, jh's Official Team Is a Team to Keep an Eye On

    Draft Summary

    Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. jh's Official Team put together a quality team and is projected to finish in fifth-place in Yahoo Public 411928 League at 7-7-0 (1,346 points). They have five decent WRs on the roster that are projected to average 138 points this season, near the league average of 143. They landed the best TE pair in the league, as they added Jimmy Graham and Tyler Eifert.

    Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

    Schedule

    jh's Official Team can write off Week 4 as a scheduling injustice and use that time to consider other injustices: for example, why doesn't Chewbacca get a medal during the ceremony at the end of Star Wars? Wookie bias? They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a weaker-than-average slate. Along with having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, jh's Official Team also has the easiest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Assessing the Assets

      TE is the strongest position for jh's Official Team, though DEF and K are also better than the league's average.

    • Root, Root, Root for the Home Team

      jh's Official Team is a believer in the hopes of the Dallas Cowboys this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.

    • Punting Your Kicking Stats in Week 11?

      jh's Official Team must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 11, both Dan Bailey and Nick Folk will be on bye.

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

      jh's Official Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

    • A Dominating Duo

      jh's Official Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jimmy Graham and DeSean Jackson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    • Basic Math is Optional

      Michael Vick once claimed "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 675 projected rushing yards, Colin Kaepernick can channel his inner Vick to help jh's Official Team this year.

      • Round 1, Pick 8

      190 Excuses to Cheer for A.J. Green

      • DeSean Jackson, WR
      • Round 5, Pick 48
      Rethinking That One

      DeSean Jackson went with the 48th pick, but is projected to fall outside of the top-30 in the NFL in both receiving TDs (38th) and receiving yards (31st) with 5.8 and 971 respectively.

      • T.Y. Hilton, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 53
      That Just Happened

    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..."
