Corresponding with a solid draft slot (third overall), Baltimore Hobos had a stellar showing. With a mark of 9-5-0 (1,379 points), they're projected to finish second in DENTITES League. They obviously understand how important the running back position is in fantasy football. They used three of their first five picks on RBs Jamaal Charles (first round), Zac Stacy (third round), and Frank Gore (fifth round). These guys could be the key to the season for Baltimore Hobos, as they are the best RB pair in the league.
Baltimore Hobos should use Week 4 to consider life's great mysteries, like why is there only one word for thesaurus? That's still better time spent than checking fantasy football that week. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. Along with having the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Baltimore Hobos has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.
A Dominating Pair
RB and DEF are both projected to be really solid units for Baltimore Hobos.
The top half of the roster (from a projected points perspective) is relatively old (ranked No. 2 in the league with an average of 6.9 years of NFL experience), whereas the bottom half is fairly young (ranked No. 9 with 4.2 years).
A Pair of Proven Winners
Baltimore Hobos has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jamaal Charles and Zac Stacy) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, Baltimore Hobos chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
Baltimore Hobos nabbed a sleeper in Mike Evans with pick No. 123.
Not Afraid to Scramble
With 481 projected rushing yards (ranking fourth among QBs), Russell Wilson has multiple ways to bring in points.
2014 Could be More of the Same
- Jamaal Charles, RB
- Round 1, Pick 3
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.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 2, Pick 18
Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Aaron Rodgers had less value than any other pick of the round.
Zac Stacy Doesn't Read the Playbook
- Zac Stacy, RB
- Round 3, Pick 23
The playbook reads him. Baltimore Hobos should be in decent shape if Stacy gets his 294 projected touches this year.
On a Scale of 1 to America
- V. Jackson, WR
- Round 4, Pick 38
How free will Vincent Jackson be in the secondary? He's projected to rack up 1,206 receiving yards this year.
- Frank Gore, RB
- Round 5, Pick 43
Frank Gore is expected to finish seventh in the NFL in rushing TDs with 8.6.
There are four positions that Baltimore Hobos could look to improve, including TE and WR, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Zach Ertz
- Rank 101, ADP 103
- Charles Clay
- Rank 118, ADP 124
- 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.
