The B1G Handsome got saddled with a late draft position (sixth overall) and didn't respond. The poor draft slot will have to serve as the excuse as to why they are projected to land in eighth place in DENTITES League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,304 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Drew Brees (15th overall), RB Doug Martin (26th), WR DeSean Jackson (46th), and TE Jimmy Graham (6th) within the first five rounds. They put together the bottom group of WRs in the league, as they added Cordarrelle Patterson, Emmanuel Sanders, Jackson, and Sammy Watkins.
Week 10 might require some additional effort if they hope to win, as their top two projected scorers (Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham) will be off with byes. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, The B1G Handsome has the softest last four games of the season.
The B1G Handsome is stacked at TE, but QB isn't too shabby, either.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, The B1G Handsome chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).
Team of Champions?
The B1G Handsome is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Jimmy Graham, Drew Brees, and DeSean Jackson.
Is He a Tight End or a Wide Receiver?
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 1, Pick 6
Jimmy Graham was owned on more championship teams across Yahoo! than any other TE in 2013.
Like a Prancing Unicorn
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 2, Pick 15
Drew Brees is a fantasy dream. He's projected to finish second in the NFL in both passing TDs (37.9) and passing yards (5,089).
How Rebellious of You
- Doug Martin, RB
- Round 3, Pick 26
The B1G Handsome said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Doug Martin).
A Choice That Wasn't Exactly Data-Driven
- R. Jennings, RB
- Round 4, Pick 35
According to projections, Rashad Jennings will fall outside of the NFL top-20 in both rushing TDs (22nd with 5.8) and yards (21st with 870). Seems like The B1G Handsome just went with their gut on this one.
Returning to Greatness
- C. Patterson, WR
- Round 6, Pick 55
If special teams contributions count in DENTITES League, The B1G Handsome may have found a gem in Cordarrelle Patterson. Including his 863 projected return yards, he ranks first in the league with 1,865 all-purpose yards.
With four below-average positions on The B1G Handsome, DEF and WR are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Chicago Defanse
- Rank 212, ADP 120
- Buffalo Defanse
- Rank 215, ADP 138
- DeAndre Hopkins
- Rank 106, ADP 122
- Justin Hunter
- Rank 108, ADP 123

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.
