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.
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.
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).
DJ's Quality Team elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
Like Your First Root Canal
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 1, Pick 3
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.
The Power of Persuasion
- B. Marshall, WR
- Round 2, Pick 18
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).
Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme
- G. Bernard, RB
- Round 3, Pick 23
Get on up, it's Giovani Bernard time! He should run cool this season with 199 projected points.
Returning to Greatness
- C. Patterson, WR
- Round 5, Pick 43
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.
Not Afraid to Scramble
- R. Griffin III, QB
- Round 6, Pick 58
With 596 projected rushing yards (ranking third among QBs), Robert Griffin III has multiple ways to bring in points.
If DJ's Quality Team has a desire to make a roster move, TE and QB are areas of need.
- Garrett Graham
- Rank 149, ADP 130
- Coby Fleener
- Rank 174, ADP 135
- Josh McCown
- Rank 130, ADP 136
- Ryan Tannehill
- Rank 133, ADP 130

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.
