The GM of Pistol Offense took the fourth overall pick in the draft and turned it into a pretty decent team. Unless of course they planned on winning, because if that was the plan, then it didn't go very well. Pistol Offense will need to make some moves to improve their playoff chances, currently projected to finish sixth in Yahoo Public 490964 League with a record of 7-7-0 (1,368 points). They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Drew Brees (17th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (4th) and Reggie Bush (44th), and WRs Jordy Nelson (24th) and Roddy White (37th). They landed a quality group of RBs, as they have Peterson, Bishop Sankey, Frank Gore, and Bush on their team.
Pistol Offense should use Week 9 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like what was the greatest thing before sliced bread? No, seriously, think about it. It's better than thinking about fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a harder-than-average schedule. Along with having the third-most grueling overall schedule, Pistol Offense also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.
AARP Card's in the Mail
With an average of 7.6 years of NFL experience, Pistol Offense is the team most likely to have a player qualify for a senior citizen discount.
Close to the Vest
Pistol Offense was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.
It's How You Finish
Pistol Offense must have had a motivational halftime speech, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
Team of Champions
Pistol Offense is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Drew Brees, Jordy Nelson, and Reggie Bush).
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, Pistol Offense chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
The Heist Is On
The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Pistol Offense got a steal in snatching Bishop Sankey in the ninth round (84th overall pick vs. ADP of 73.1).
Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?
- A. Peterson, RB
- Round 1, Pick 4
Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. Peterson is ranked second in the league with 1,857 all-purpose yards.
Like a Prancing Unicorn
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 2, Pick 17
Drew Brees is a fantasy dream. He's projected to finish second in the NFL in both passing TDs (37.9) and passing yards (5,277).
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Jordy Nelson, WR
- Round 3, Pick 24
Jordy Nelson was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
Let Me Check it Again
- Reggie Bush, RB
- Round 5, Pick 44
Why can't I find Reggie Bush on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round flier."
Was the 57th Pick the Right Time for Frank Gore?
- Frank Gore, RB
- Round 6, Pick 57
Pistol Offense apparently believes it is. The 49ers' running back is projected to get 164 points this year, after producing 175 last year.
If Pistol Offense wants to upgrade, DEF and RB are areas they could go after first.
- Baltimore Defanse
- Rank 238, ADP 142
- Tampa Bay Defanse
- Rank 242, ADP 134
- Terrance West
- Rank 89, ADP 120

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.
