Insane in the Brain Draft Report Card


With Multiple Dolphins, Insane in the Brain Is Loaded With Studs

Draft Summary

Whether or not Insane in the Brain was talking trash in the draft chat room is irrelevant and you have no proof. What there is proof of, though, is a dominant draft performance by Insane in the Brain that led to a season projection of 12-2-0 (1,510 points) and a first-place finish in Yahoo Public 539635 League. They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Julio Jones (second round), Randall Cobb (third round), and Andre Johnson (fifth round). Insane in the Brain will rely heavily on this group, as they are one of the highest-scoring groups of WRs in the league.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Insane in the Brain can chalk up Week 5 as a loss. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the easiest schedule. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, Insane in the Brain also has the league's easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Good Luck With That One!

    Insane in the Brain will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Andre Johnson), fourth- (Amari Cooper), and fifth-ranked (Brandon Marshall) wideouts.

  • WR or Bust

    Unfortunately, WR is the only strong position on Insane in the Brain. Fortunately, there's always next year.

  • I Keep Getting Older

    And they stay the same age. Insane in the Brain isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 5.4 years of NFL experience.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With six "low-risk" players among their 15 picks, Insane in the Brain is looking for dependable help.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Insane in the Brain will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 5, as their only TE (Jordan Cameron) and only DEF (Miami) will both be idle that week.

  • A Miami Dolphins Homer

    The fantasy hopes of Insane in the Brain will rest heavily on the fortunes of the Dolphins, as they drafted four of them to their squad.

Player Analysis

    • Eddie Lacy, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    Lacy is Hungry

    And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank third in the NFL with 318 touches.

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Yahoo Public 539635 League overlooked a gem, and Insane in the Brain made the highest value pick of the round by taking Julio Jones.

    • Randall Cobb, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 23
    185 Excuses to Cheer for Randall Cobb

    Cobb ranks eighth in the Yahoo Public 539635 League among wideouts with 185 projected fantasy points.

    • Alfred Morris, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 38
    Rarely Seen in the Wild

    With 1,155 projected yards on the ground, Alfred Morris is an elusive three-down back.

    • Andre Johnson, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 43
    It Was a Learning Experience

    Hey, remember that time Insane in the Brain took Andre Johnson WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Johnson was the weakest value pick 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..."
