Picking eighth, Kate's Team built a team that probably isn't even worth talking about. It wouldn't be fair to give the good teams a recap and not the bad ones, though, so here goes. They are expected to finish 10th in Yahoo Public 490964 League with a record of 1-13-0 (1,261 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs A.J. Green (second round), Vincent Jackson (fourth round), and Michael Crabtree (fifth round). Even so, they ended up with one of the worst groups of WRs in the league.
Kate's Team might as well plan a vacation for Week 4. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the toughest schedules. Along with the second-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Kate's Team.
Earning Your Paycheck
Kate's Team will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Michael Crabtree), fourth- (Eric Decker), and fifth-ranked (Rueben Randle) wideouts.
Not Focused on Offense
K is the only above-average position on Kate's Team.
While the bottom half of the Kate's Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 2), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).
Kate's Team got off to a sluggish start, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.
Kate's Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
Kate's Team grabbed a sleeper in Johnny Manziel with pick No. 128.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Montee Ball, RB
- Round 1, Pick 8
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Montee Ball was the weakest value pick of the round.
190 More Reasons to Appreciate A.J. Green
- A.J. Green, WR
- Round 2, Pick 13
Green ranks sixth in the Yahoo Public 490964 League among WRs with 190 projected fantasy points.
Rethinking That One
- M. Crabtree, WR
- Round 5, Pick 48
While drafted 48th overall, Michael Crabtree isn't projected among the NFL's top-30 in either receiving TDs (32nd with 6.2) or receiving yards (36th with 916).
Was the 53rd Pick the Right Time for Jordan Cameron?
- Jordan Cameron, TE
- Round 6, Pick 53
Kate's Team apparently believes it is. The Browns' tight end is projected to get 110 points this year, after producing 134 last year.
Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls
- Tony Romo, QB
- Round 7, Pick 68
By taking Tony Romo with the 68th overall pick, Kate's Team should have shown more patience. According to the signal-caller's ADP of only 83.1 across all Yahoo! leagues, he could've been chosen later. TLC would disapprove.
There are five positions that Kate's Team could look to upgrade, including DEF, which looks like their biggest area of need.
- Baltimore Defanse
- Rank 238, ADP 142
- Tampa Bay Defanse
- Rank 242, ADP 134
- New York Defanse
- Rank 243, ADP 121
- Miami Defanse

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.
