GMD Draft Report Card


Coinciding with Some Early-Round Reaches, GMD Can Make the Playoffs if They Just Replace Most of the Team

Draft Summary

GMD should consider renaming the team "Learning Experience," because that's what this draft was. Picking ninth, GMD bumbled their way through their picks, leading to a projected finish of 10th in Dallas Premier Football League with a record of 4-9-0 (2,438 points). With their first five picks, GMD aimed for balance, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (16th overall), RBs Mark Ingram (40th) and Chris Ivory (57th), and WRs Odell Beckham Jr. (9th) and DeAndre Hopkins (33rd). They have one of the worst groups of WRs in the league, as they have Beckham Jr., Hopkins, Nelson Agholor, and Brandon LaFell for their rotation.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.


GMD should use Week 8 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why don't the pants worn by Dr. Bruce Banner rip when he transforms into the Hulk? It's better to think about that than pay attention to fantasy football. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least difficult slates. Corresponding with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, GMD also has the softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Breshad Perriman, GMD pounced on him at pick No. 201.

  • GMD Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Sheldon Richardson at pick 136 was just a bit of a stretch. Richardson is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

  • Like Warren Sapp in his Prime

    With six projected sacks, Sheldon Richardson ranks fourth among all DTs in Dallas Premier Football League in that category.

  • Dual-Threat Dynamo

    Colin Kaepernick can deliver fantasy glory to GMD with his arm and his legs. Kaepernick has 635 projected rushing yards, and ranks first among QBs in that category.

Player Analysis

    • O. Beckham Jr., WR
    • Round 1, Pick 9
    Blackjack Beckham

    A 21-year-old rookie who was injured to begin the year, Beckham concluded 2014 with 21 targets in Week 17 against Philadelphia. No other player saw more targets in a single game all season.

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 16
    Insanely Efficient

    Despite attempting 32.5 passes per game (just 22nd in the league), Rodgers threw for the seventh-most yards (4,381) and third-most TDs (38) last season. A whopping 33 QBs tossed more interceptions than Rodgers' five.

    • Mark Ingram, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 40
    How Rebellious of You

    GMD said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (Mark Ingram).

    • Chris Ivory, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 57
    Throwing Caution to the Wind

    They grabbed Chris Ivory with the 57th pick, even though his ADP is only 93.6 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Best Available

GMD has one weak area, WR, that they may want to improve.

    • Dwayne Bowe

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..."
