With the right set of circumstances, Clown Question could potentially make the playoffs. A tough draft spot led to a fairly tough draft. Picking ninth overall, they're projected to land in seventh place in DENTITES League with a record of 7-7-0 (1,306 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Andrew Luck (49th overall), RBs Alfred Morris (29th) and Toby Gerhart (32nd), and WRs Demaryius Thomas (9th) and Dez Bryant (12th). They ended up with the top group of WRs in the league, as they added Bryant, Thomas, Wes Welker, and Dwayne Bowe.
Clown Question should use Week 11 to consider life's great mysteries, like why abbreviation is such a long word. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. In addition to having the third-most grueling overall schedule, Clown Question also has the toughest first four games of the season.
Not Focused on Offense
K is the only above-average position on Clown Question.
May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor
Clown Question might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Andrew Luck) and second-drafted QB (Tony Romo) have similar seasonal point projections.
Best Days are Behind Them?
With four players projected to score significantly fewer points this season, Clown Question will be hoping the experts are wrong.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Clown Question will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 8, as their only TE (Vernon Davis) and only DEF (San Francisco) will both be idle that week.
A Pair of Proven Winners
Clown Question has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Demaryius Thomas and Josh Gordon) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, Clown Question chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
The Power of Persuasion
- D. Thomas, WR
- Round 1, Pick 9
Now would be a reasonable time for Clown Question to encourage the DENTITES League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Demaryius Thomas and his 106 projected catches (ranked second in the NFL).
Better Lucky Than Good?
- Dez Bryant, WR
- Round 2, Pick 12
The rest of DENTITES League overlooked a gem, and Clown Question made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Dez Bryant.
If it Ain't Broke
- Alfred Morris, RB
- Round 3, Pick 29
Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Clown Question didn't grab their first RB (Alfred Morris) until the third round.
Rarely Seen in the Wild
- Toby Gerhart, RB
- Round 4, Pick 32
With 1,116 projected yards on the ground, Toby Gerhart is an elusive three-down back.
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 5, Pick 49
Andrew Luck will be making it rain on defenses this year, and is forecasted to finish 10th in the NFL with 4,072 passing yards.
There are five positions that Clown Question could look to improve, including DEF and TE, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Chicago Defanse
- Rank 212, ADP 120
- Buffalo Defanse
- Rank 215, ADP 138
- Zach Ertz
- Rank 101, ADP 103
- Charles Clay
- Rank 118, ADP 124

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.
