Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, Ashley's Team Hasn't Quite Figured Out This Whole "Draft a Good Team" Thing

Draft Summary

Playoffs?! Ashley's Team is projected to finish in ninth-place in Footballers 4 Life League with a 3-10-0 (1,295 points) record and you want to talk about playoffs?! Ashley's Team should just hope they can win a few games, let alone reach the playoffs. They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Matt Ryan (25th overall), RB Reggie Bush (36th), WR Calvin Johnson (5th), and TE Vernon Davis (45th) within the first five rounds. They have the best group of WRs in the league, as they have Johnson, Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and Eric Decker for their rotation.

Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

Schedule

Ashley's Team should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why is there only one word for thesaurus? That's still better time spent than checking fantasy football that week. Their top four projected scorers (Matt Ryan, Jay Cutler, Calvin Johnson, and Alshon Jeffery) will be relaxing at home that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the hardest schedule. In addition to having the most grueling overall schedule, Ashley's Team also has the most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

    Ashley's Team grabbed a couple of QBs (Matt Ryan and Jay Cutler) that'll both be on bye in Week 9, and will be looking for a signal-caller. You can call Brett, but texting him isn't exactly recommended.

  • Strength in Numbers

    WR is the best position for Ashley's Team, though QB and DEF are also stronger-than-average.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the Ashley's Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).

  • Team of Champions

    Ashley's Team is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams, including Calvin Johnson, Alshon Jeffery, and Reggie Bush.

  • Full Control Early On

    Ashley's Team began things with a bang, nabbing the most projected points in the league during the draft's first half.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Ashley's Team grabbed a sleeper in Jeremy Hill with pick No. 125.

    How Rebellious of You

    • Vernon Davis, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 45
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Vernon Davis, the weakest value of the round.

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..."
