    B+
    Grade

    Led by a Quality Group of RBs, A.K.A. Big Paul Will Impose Its Will on Meager Opponents

    Draft Summary

    A.K.A. Big Paul took advantage of the top spot and used it to humiliate the rest of the league. The rest of the league may as well head home and start planning for next year, because A.K.A. Big Paul is projected to finish first in Yahoo Public 411928 League with a record of 10-4-0 (1,402 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Julio Jones (second round), Andre Johnson (fourth round), and Roddy White (fifth round). They ended up with the highest-scoring group of RBs in the league, as they have Jamaal Charles, Giovani Bernard, and Trent Richardson on the roster.

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

    Schedule

    A.K.A. Big Paul should drop off the grid during Week 10. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least challenging schedules. A.K.A. Big Paul has the opportunity to close with a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

    Draft Notes

    • Good Luck With That One!

      A.K.A. Big Paul will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Roddy White), fourth- (Terrance Williams), and fifth-ranked (Dwayne Bowe) wideouts.

    • Defense Wins Championships?

      A.K.A. Big Paul chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

    Player Analysis

      • Jamaal Charles, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 1
      2014 Could be More of the Same

      Owners who took a chance on Charles last season were rewarded handsomely, as he was owned on more playoff rosters across Yahoo! than any other RB.

      • Julio Jones, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 20
      The Power of Persuasion

      Now would be a reasonable time for A.K.A. Big Paul to encourage the Yahoo Public 411928 League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Julio Jones and his 105 projected catches (ranked third in the NFL).

      • G. Bernard, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 21
      Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

      Get on up, it's Giovani Bernard time! He's predicted to run cool this season with 199 projected points.

      • Andre Johnson, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 40
      On a Scale of 1 to America

      How free will Andre Johnson get in the secondary? He's projected to put up 1,184 receiving yards this year.

      • R. Griffin III, QB
      • Round 6, Pick 60
      Dual-Threat Dynamo

      Robert Griffin III can deliver fantasy glory to A.K.A. Big Paul with his arm and his legs. Griffin III has 596 projected rushing yards, and ranks third among QBs in that category.

    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..."
