Loaded With Eagles, Jerome's Team Should Probably Stop Reading This Draft Recap Now

Draft Summary

Jerome's Team should consider renaming the team "Learning Experience," because that's what this draft was. Picking eighth, Jerome's Team bumbled their way through their picks, leading to a projected finish of ninth in Yahoo Public 539635 League with a record of 3-11-0 (1,402 points). They must have had their eye on Allen Robinson, waiting until the 10th round to draft him (their first WR taken), with the 93rd overall pick. They put together the highest-scoring TE tandem in the league, as they have Rob Gronkowski and Larry Donnell on their team.

Yikes. At least it can't get any worse. In fact, if you nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame, you'll be an official nominee. Feel better?

Schedule

Week 8 could be a frustrating one for Jerome's Team, as their top two projected scorers (Sam Bradford and DeMarco Murray) will be off that weekend. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the most difficult slates. 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 Jerome's Team.

Draft Notes

  • Lots of Brotherly Love

    The fantasy hopes of Jerome's Team rely heavily on the fortunes of Philly's offense, as they have four Eagles on their roster.

  • Asset Management

    Jerome's Team is loaded at TE and DEF. Could they be willing to leverage some of that talent and listen to trade offers from other teams in Yahoo Public 539635 League?

  • Fantasy FĂștbol

    This is the American version, folks. Jerome's Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.

  • Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up

    Jerome's Team got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • Big D

    Jerome's Team elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • Protect His Blind Side

    Let's hope the injury bug doesn't bite Sam Bradford. Jerome's Team preferred depth at other positions and grabbed Bradford as their only QB.

Player Analysis

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 1, Pick 8
    And It Wasn't Even Close

    Across all Yahoo! leagues, no Tight End appeared more often on first-place rosters than Gronk last year.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    DeMarco Da Man

    Across all Yahoo! leagues, only one Running Back (Le'Veon Bell) showed up on more first-place rosters than Murray last season.

    • Larry Donnell, TE
    • Round 3, Pick 28
    Apparently ADP is Overrated

    With their third-round pick, Jerome's Team pulled the trigger. They took Larry Donnell at pick number 28 despite an ADP of just 130.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Antonio Gates, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 33
    Is He More of a Blocker?

    Despite being selected 33rd overall, Antonio Gates does not project among the top-10 of NFL TEs in either receiving yards (23rd with 512) or receiving TDs (14th with 4.5).

    • Philadelphia, DEF
    • Round 6, Pick 53
    Was Defense a Smart Decision at Pick No. 53?

    Jerome's Team sure hopes so. Philadelphia's D is only predicted to have 128 points this year, after producing 189 last year.

Best Available

There are three positions that Jerome's Team could look to improve, including WR and QB, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • John Brown
    • Rank 104, ADP 123
    • Percy Harvin
    • Rank 106, ADP 118
    • Carson Palmer

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..."
