    Lisa Lantry's Team Draft Report Card


    Projected to Finish Fourth, Lisa Lantry's Team Will Be a Tough Out

    Draft Summary

    Lisa Lantry's Team put together an underrated roster that might not dominate week in and week out, but will be firmly entrenched in a playoff spot by season's end. They're projected to finish the season with a 9-5-0 (1,364) record in Yahoo Public 490964 League, which will be good enough for fourth. If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Alshon Jeffery (third round), Victor Cruz (fourth round), and Andre Johnson (fifth round). They built one of the worst tandems of QBs in the league, as they added Andrew Luck and Ben Roethlisberger.

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


    Lisa Lantry's Team should use Week 10 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why don't the pants worn by Dr. Bruce Banner rip when he transforms into the Hulk? It's better to think about that than pay attention to fantasy football. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have an easier-than-average schedule. Although they have the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Lisa Lantry's Team actually has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

      Lisa Lantry's Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

    • A Dominating Duo

      Lisa Lantry's Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (LeSean McCoy and Alshon Jeffery) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    Player Analysis

      • LeSean McCoy, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 2
      Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. McCoy is projected to rank 10th in the league with 1,546 all-purpose yards.

      • Le'Veon Bell, RB
      • Round 2, Pick 19

      • Alshon Jeffery, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 22

      Was Andrew Luck the Best Choice at Pick No. 59?

    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..."
