Projected to Finish Ninth, Barrett Won't Lose Is of the Average Variety

Draft Summary

If there was a Hall of Average, Barrett Won't Lose would have a plaque. Unfortunately, there isn't, so instead they'll just have to settle for losing more often than not. This team is projected to finish in ninth-place in Hafa Dai Ahead League at 5-8-0 (2,239 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Ben Roethlisberger (65th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (9th) and Jonathan Stewart (48th), and WRs Mike Evans (20th) and Jordy Nelson (37th). They put together a quality group of RBs, as they have Peterson, Stewart, T.J. Yeldon, and Chris Ivory on their roster.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Week 8 might require some waiver-wire magic from Barrett Won't Lose. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Along with the seventh-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Barrett Won't Lose.

Draft Notes

  • Doing It By Committee

    By picking up a pair of Jacksonville Jaguars RBs in the middle rounds of the draft (Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon), Barrett Won't Lose will be hoping there are enough fantasy points to go around in that backfield.

  • Asset Allocation

    TE is the strongest position for Barrett Won't Lose, though QB and WR aren't too shabby either.

  • On the Rise

    Barrett Won't Lose hopes to break through this season, led by four players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.

  • Aging Stars

    The top half of the roster (from a projected points perspective) is relatively old (ranked No. 3 in the league with an average of 6.8 years of NFL experience), whereas the bottom half is fairly young (ranked No. 13 with 3.7 years).

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, Barrett Won't Lose picked only one player at three different positions (QB, TE, and DEF).

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Jay Ajayi, Barrett Won't Lose pounced on him at pick No. 188.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 9
    Feed Thy Beast

    Adrian Peterson will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish second in the league with 336 touches.

    • Mike Evans, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    Defensive Coordinators Plan Specifically for Evans

    Mike Evans is expected to reach paydirt 8.7 times, placing him sixth in the NFL in projected receiving TDs.

    • Jordy Nelson, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 37
    The Alchemist

    Barrett Won't Lose chose a WR who's highly likely to turn a deep ball into TD gold. Jordy Nelson is projected to rank fourth among NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 5.4 and TDs over 40 yards with 2.1.

    • J. Stewart, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 48
    Apparently ADP is Overrated

    With their fourth-round pick, Barrett Won't Lose pulled the trigger. They took Jonathan Stewart at pick number 48 despite an ADP of just 63.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • B. Roethlisberger, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 65
    Biggest Steal

    Barrett Won't Lose may have found a gem in the fifth round, grabbing Ben Roethlisberger (65th overall pick vs. ADP of 46.4).

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..."
