    charlie's Team Draft Report Card


    Projected to Finish Ninth, charlie's Team Looks Like Cellar Dweller

    Draft Summary

    charlie's Team does know this is "football" not "fútbol", right? Either way they turned the second overall pick into an easy win for the rest of the league, as they are projected to finish ninth in Yahoo Public 411928 League with a record of 5-9-0. They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Drew Brees (19th overall), RBs LeSean McCoy (2nd) and Reggie Bush (42nd), and WRs Alshon Jeffery (22nd) and Michael Crabtree (39th). They have the worst group of RBs in the league, as they added McCoy, Bush, Maurice Jones-Drew, and DeAngelo Williams.

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


    charlie's Team can write off Week 9 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 more-challenging-than-average slate. Although they have the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, charlie's Team actually has the softest last four games of the season.

    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..."
