    Slated for a Fifth-Place Finish, harley's Team Can Compete With Anyone

    Draft Summary

    Putting together a decent team, harley's Team didn't want to show up the Yahoo Public 490964 League and build some unbeatable juggernaut. They instead focused on building a team with a good chance to make the playoffs. Humbly, they are expected to finish in fifth-place in Yahoo Public 490964 League at 8-6-0 (1,372 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Peyton Manning (15th overall), RB Zac Stacy (26th), WR Calvin Johnson (6th), and TE Vernon Davis (46th) within the first five rounds. They built the most prolific QB duo in the league, as they have Manning and Philip Rivers on the roster.

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

    Schedule

    harley's Team should drop off the grid during Week 4. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. harley's Team has the opportunity to come out firing, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

    Draft Notes

    • A Talented Trio

      harley's Team has three above-average positions on their roster (QB, DEF, and K).

    • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

      At three different positions, harley's Team picked up projected top-two players (Peyton Manning, Calvin Johnson, and Justin Tucker).

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

      harley's Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

    • Team of Champions?

      harley's Team 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: Calvin Johnson, Peyton Manning, and Zac Stacy.

    • You Snooze, You Lose

      While the rest of the league slept on Markus Wheaton, harley's Team pounced on him at pick No. 126.

    Player Analysis

      • Calvin Johnson, WR
      • Round 1, Pick 6
      Meeting His Expectations

      Often the only WR taken in the first round in 2013, Megatron lived up to the billing and was owned on more playoff teams across Yahoo! than any other wideout.

      • Peyton Manning, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 15
      Fantasy is Better Than Reality

      Even though he fell short in Super Bowl 48, Peyton Manning was more likely to be owned on a 2013 Yahoo! championship roster than any other QB.

      • Zac Stacy, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 26
      If it Ain't Broke

      Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, harley's Team didn't grab their first RB (Zac Stacy) until the third round.

      • R. Jennings, RB
      • Round 4, Pick 35
      Throwing Caution to the Wind

      They grabbed Rashad Jennings with the 35th pick, even though his ADP is only 64.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.

      • Vernon Davis, TE
      • Round 5, Pick 46
      A Sizable Target in the Red Zone

      With 5.9 projected TD catches, Vernon Davis ranks fifth in the NFL among TEs in that category.

    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..."
