    Projected to Finish Second, Alejandro's Team Has Shot at Winning League

    Draft Summary

    This draft by Alejandro's Team was like a finely tuned Peyton Manning-led offense, with all the pieces falling into place. Just like Peyton's offense, Alejandro's Team is expected to score a lot of points this season and finish second in Footballers 4 Life League at 10-3-0 (1,443 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Drew Brees (11th overall), RBs Alfred Morris (30th) and Arian Foster (31st), and WRs Dez Bryant (10th) and Roddy White (50th). They landed one of the best QB tandems in the league, as they have Brees and Andy Dalton on the roster.

    With a draft like that, you might as well make it official. Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Alejandro's Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least challenging slates. Alejandro's Team has the opportunity to start and finish with a flurry, as both the first four games and final four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

    Draft Notes

    • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

      At three different positions, Alejandro's Team picked up projected top-two players (Dez Bryant, Drew Brees, and Carolina).

    • Sky's the Limit

      With five players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Alejandro's Team hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

    • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

      Alejandro's Team nabbed a sleeper in Markus Wheaton with pick No. 130.

    Player Analysis

      • Dez Bryant, WR
      • Round 1, Pick 10
      Bryant is More of a Full-Service Guy

      Rodney Dangerfield claimed he once went to a massage parlor that was self-service. With 230 projected fantasy points this year, Dez Bryant should serve Alejandro's Team a little better than that.

      • Drew Brees, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 11
      Like a Prancing Unicorn

      Drew Brees is a fantasy dream. He's projected to finish second in the NFL in both passing TDs (37.9) and passing yards (5,129).

      • Alfred Morris, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 30
      How Rebellious of You

      Alejandro's Team said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Alfred Morris).

      • Arian Foster, RB
      • Round 4, Pick 31
      Stolen In Broad Daylight

      Arian Foster was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

      • Jordan Cameron, TE
      • Round 6, Pick 51
      A Big Target for the QB

      Jordan Cameron ranks fourth in the Footballers 4 Life League among TEs with 144 projected fantasy points.

    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..."
