    In Spite of Some Early-Round Value Picks, o-d-o-m Has an Average Roster

    Draft Summary

    Maybe if o-d-o-m purchases a lift kit and some giant tires for this roster it won't seem so average. The playoffs are not out of reach for this team, but it will require some effort. They are projected to finish ninth in Crushed Hopes (Season 4) with a record of 5-8-0 (4,400 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (14th overall), RB Shane Vereen (42nd), WR A.J. Green (15th), and TE Vernon Davis (70th) within the first five rounds. They have the bottom RB duo in the league, as they added Reggie Bush and Stevan Ridley to the team.

    Brutal draft. Still, you should nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame. That way, your players will have to live up to the pressure.

    Schedule

    o-d-o-m should do pretty much anything other than watch football during Week 9. They have 11 players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. o-d-o-m has the opportunity to exit the gates quickly, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

    Draft Notes

    • Carrying the Load

      o-d-o-m has a trio of above-average positions leading the way (TE, QB, and DEF).

    • AARP Card's in the Mail

      With an average of 6.8 years of NFL experience, o-d-o-m is the team most likely to have a player qualify for a senior citizen discount.

    • No Back-Up No Cry

      Ignoring roster depth, o-d-o-m chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

    • Bargain Shopper

      With six steals in the first 18 rounds (including Kansas City, Riley Cooper, and Dwayne Bowe), o-d-o-m made some shrewd moves.

    • o-d-o-m Went All YOLO Here

      Grabbing Charles Woodson at pick 211 was just a bit of a stretch. Woodson is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Not Just a Cover Corner

      Among CBs in Crushed Hopes (Season 4) League, Tramon Williams ranks fourth in projected tackles with 76.

    Player Analysis

      • Aaron Rodgers, QB
      • Round 1, Pick 14
      Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

      Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Aaron Rodgers had less value than any other pick of the round.

      • A.J. Green, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 15
      250 More Reasons to Appreciate A.J. Green

      Green ranks ninth in the Crushed Hopes (Season 4) League among WRs with 250 projected fantasy points.

      • Shane Vereen, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 42
      If it Ain't Broke

      Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, o-d-o-m didn't grab their first RB (Shane Vereen) until the third round.

      • Reggie Bush, RB
      • Round 4, Pick 43
      A Versatile Combination

      Reggie Bush can hurt opponents with his hands as well as his feet. He ranks third among RBs in projected receiving yards with 557.

      • Vernon Davis, TE
      • Round 5, Pick 70
      A Big Target in the Red Zone

      With 6.7 projected TD catches, Vernon Davis ranks fifth in the NFL among TEs 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..."
