Projected to Finish First, allison's Team Finishes the Draft as Paper Champions

Draft Summary

In correlation with this draft, allison's Team has decided to open a nice little side business that teaches inferior opponents how to draft like a boss. After allison's Team hopped off the bus they used to take the rest of these kids to school, they built a roster that's projected to finish first in Yahoo Public 490964 League with a record of 11-3-0 (1,362 points). With five WRs on the roster, allison's Team guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 143, their WRs projected average of 144 points this season is not much different than the rest of the wideout groups in the league. They landed the top TE tandem in the league, as they have Jimmy Graham and Tyler Eifert.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

allison's Team should use Week 4 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 five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the softest slates. In addition to having the second-easiest overall schedule, allison's Team also has the softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Asset Management

    allison's Team is loaded at TE and DEF. Could they be willing to leverage some of that talent and listen to trade offers from other teams in Yahoo Public 490964 League?

  • I Keep Getting Older

    And they stay the same age. allison's Team isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 4.4 years of NFL experience.

  • Fantasy FĂștbol

    This is the American version, folks. allison's Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.

Player Analysis

    • Jimmy Graham, TE
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    A Return to Huge Numbers

    Sean Payton's return to the Saints' sideline seemed to work out for Jimmy Graham, who was owned on more championship rosters across Yahoo! than any other TE.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    The Power of Persuasion

    • A. Ellington, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 27
    Does Andre Ellington Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

    Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. Ellington is ranked seventh in the league with 1,615 all-purpose yards.

    • Toby Gerhart, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 34
    Throwing Caution to the Wind

    They grabbed Toby Gerhart with the 34th pick, even though his ADP is only 65.9 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • C. Patterson, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 47
    Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in Yahoo Public 490964 League, allison's Team may have found a gem in Cordarrelle Patterson. Including his 858 projected return yards, he ranks first in the league with 1,918 all-purpose yards.

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..."
