    King Stalin Paulin Draft Report Card

    Grade

    Despite a Powerful Set of RBs, King Stalin Paulin Isn't Going to Scare Anyone

    Draft Summary

    Maybe if King Stalin Paulin purchases a lift kit and some giant tires for this roster it won't seem so average. The playoffs are not out of reach for this team, but it will require some effort. They are projected to finish seventh in PAUL's FF with a record of 7-7-0 (1,383 points). They obviously understand how important the running back position is in fantasy football. They used three of their first five picks on RBs Doug Martin (third round), Reggie Bush (fourth round), and Shane Vereen (fifth round). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, King Stalin Paulin will benefit. They are one of the top groups of RBs in the league.

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

    Schedule

    Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, King Stalin Paulin has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the most challenging slates. Corresponding with the second-most demanding overall schedule, King Stalin Paulin also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Stockpiling Talent at TE

      King Stalin Paulin should be in good shape with five position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE is definitely the strongest among them.

    • Up and Comers

      Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and King Stalin Paulin may have done just that, with five players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.

    • Defense Wins Championships?

      King Stalin Paulin chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

    • A Pair of Proven Winners

      King Stalin Paulin has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jimmy Graham and Reggie Bush) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    • Mr. Mendoza

      Miles Austin is owned in only 3% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) King Stalin Paulin has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

    Player Analysis

      • Jimmy Graham, TE
      • Round 1, Pick 10
      Is He a Tight End or a Wide Receiver?

      Jimmy Graham was owned on more championship teams across Yahoo! than any other TE in 2013.

      • Aaron Rodgers, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 15
      Do You Know if Aaron Rodgers is Religious?

      With 325 projected points, King Stalin Paulin is hoping Rodgers will be the answer to their prayers.

      • Doug Martin, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 34
      How Rebellious of You

      King Stalin Paulin said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Doug Martin).

      • Reggie Bush, RB
      • Round 4, Pick 39
      He Can Catch, Too

      Reggie Bush is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks third among RBs in projected receiving yards with 557.

      • Shane Vereen, RB
      • Round 5, Pick 58
      Apparently ADP is Overrated

      With their fifth-round pick, King Stalin Paulin pulled the trigger. They took Shane Vereen at pick number 58 despite an ADP of just 89.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    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..."
