    DJ's Quality Team Draft Report Card

    Grade

    Slated for a Second-Place Finish, DJ's Quality Team Has a Team to Watch

    Draft Summary

    Watch out for DJ's Quality Team. Taking advantage of a solid draft spot (third overall), they built a team poised to do some damage in Yahoo Public 56212 League. DJ's Quality Team is expected to finish second with a record of 10-4-0 (1,369 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Brandon Marshall (second round), Victor Cruz (fourth round), and Cordarrelle Patterson (fifth round). These players will be heavily relied upon by DJ's Quality Team, as they are an above-average group of WRs.

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

    Schedule

    Week 4 is not looking like a fun one for fantasy football. DJ's Quality Team should look into the joys of scrapbooking, or bird-watching, or just keep DJ's Quality Team away from the TV. It won't be pretty. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the easiest schedule. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, DJ's Quality Team also has the league's easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Veteran Mentors on the Bench

      While the top half of the roster (from a projected points perspective) is relatively young (ranked No. 9 in the league with an average of 4.3 years of NFL experience), the bench is quite experienced (ranked No. 2 with 9 years).

    • Big D

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

    Player Analysis

      • LeSean McCoy, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 3
      Like Your First Root Canal

      The projections for LeSean McCoy are scary. He's projected to be the fourth-best RB in the league this season with 221 projected fantasy points.

      • B. Marshall, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 18
      The Power of Persuasion

      Now would be a reasonable time for DJ's Quality Team to encourage the Yahoo Public 56212 League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Brandon Marshall and his 92 projected catches (ranked eighth in the NFL).

      • G. Bernard, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 23
      Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

      Get on up, it's Giovani Bernard time! He should run cool this season with 199 projected points.

      • C. Patterson, WR
      • Round 5, Pick 43
      Returning to Greatness

      If special teams contributions count in Yahoo Public 56212 League, DJ's Quality Team may have found a gem in Cordarrelle Patterson. Including his 858 projected return yards, he ranks first in the league with 1,918 all-purpose yards.

      • R. Griffin III, QB
      • Round 6, Pick 58
      Not Afraid to Scramble

      With 596 projected rushing yards (ranking third among QBs), Robert Griffin III has multiple ways to bring in points.

    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..."
