    With a Projected Finish of 12th, THE OMAHA CHOKE JOB Still Has Work To Do

    Draft Summary

    THE OMAHA CHOKE JOB was handed a solid draft position and apparently they saw that as an opportunity to blow it. Even though they had the second overall pick, they're projected to finish 12th in PAUL's FF League with a mark of 1-13-0 (1,249 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Philip Rivers (26th overall), RB Adrian Peterson (2nd), WR Keenan Allen (23rd), and TE Vernon Davis (50th) within the first five rounds. They ended up with the bottom group of RBs in the league, as they have Peterson, Carlos Hyde, and Jonathan Stewart on the roster.

    Brutal draft. Still, you should nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame. That way, your players will have to live up to the pressure.

    Schedule

    THE OMAHA CHOKE JOB can chalk up Week 10 as a loss. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the most challenging slate. THE OMAHA CHOKE JOB has the opportunity to close with a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

    Draft Notes

    • Earning Your Paycheck

      THE OMAHA CHOKE JOB will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Brandin Cooks), fourth- (Mike Evans), and fifth-ranked (Wes Welker) wideouts.

    • Not Focused on Offense

      K is the only above-average position on THE OMAHA CHOKE JOB.

    • Officially Mediocre

      While the bottom half of the THE OMAHA CHOKE JOB roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 3), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 12).

    • Starting Slowly

      THE OMAHA CHOKE JOB got off to a sluggish start, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.

    • Big D

      THE OMAHA CHOKE JOB elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

    • You Snooze, You Lose

      While the rest of the league slept on Jonathan Stewart, THE OMAHA CHOKE JOB pounced on him at pick No. 146.

    Player Analysis

      • A. Peterson, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 2
      Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Peterson is projected to rank fifth in the league with 1,642 all-purpose yards.

      • Philip Rivers, QB
      • Round 3, Pick 26
      Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls

      By taking Philip Rivers with the 26th overall pick, THE OMAHA CHOKE JOB should have shown more patience. According to the signal-caller's ADP of only 104.5 across all Yahoo! leagues, he could've been chosen later. TLC would disapprove.

      • Vernon Davis, TE
      • Round 5, Pick 50
      A Sizable Target in the Red Zone

      With 6.6 projected TD catches, Vernon Davis ranks fourth in the NFL among TEs in that category.

      • T.Y. Hilton, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 71
      Was the 71st Pick the Right Time for T.Y. Hilton?

      THE OMAHA CHOKE JOB apparently believes it is. The Colts' wide receiver is projected to get 141 points this year, nearly identical to his total last year.

      • Carlos Hyde, RB
      • Round 7, Pick 74
      It Was a Learning Experience

      Hey, remember that time THE OMAHA CHOKE JOB took Carlos Hyde WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Hyde 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..."
