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.
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.
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.
This is the American version, folks. allison's Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.
A Return to Huge Numbers
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 1, Pick 7
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.
The Power of Persuasion
- B. Marshall, WR
- Round 2, Pick 14
Now would be a reasonable time for allison's Team to encourage the Yahoo Public 490964 League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Brandon Marshall and his 92 projected catches (ranked eighth in the NFL).
Does Andre Ellington Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?
- A. Ellington, RB
- Round 3, Pick 27
Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. Ellington is ranked seventh in the league with 1,615 all-purpose yards.
Throwing Caution to the Wind
- Toby Gerhart, RB
- Round 4, Pick 34
They grabbed Toby Gerhart with the 34th pick, even though his ADP is only 65.9 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Returning to Greatness
- C. Patterson, WR
- Round 5, Pick 47
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.
If allison's Team is looking to make a roster move, RB is a position they could look to upgrade first.
- Terrance West
- Rank 89, ADP 120
- Fred Jackson
- Rank 96, ADP 117
- Bernard Pierce
- Rank 98, ADP 126
- Ray Rice
- Rank 99, ADP 98

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..."
