    Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, LAST JOK3R's Team Embarrassed Themselves

    Draft Summary

    If LAST JOK3R's Team handles adversity during the season the way they did in this draft, it's going to be a long year. After receiving the ninth overall pick they were clearly rattled, which was made evident by their draft performance. As a result, they are projected to finish eighth in Yahoo Public 56212 League with a record of 6-8-0 (1,321 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Dez Bryant (second round), Antonio Brown (third round), and Randall Cobb (fourth round). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, LAST JOK3R's Team will benefit. They are the most prolific group of WRs in the league.

    Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    While Week 9 has the most players on bye for LAST JOK3R's Team (four), Week 4 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. Despite having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, LAST JOK3R's Team actually has the second-softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Highlight Reel

      LAST JOK3R's Team is stacked at WR, but DEF isn't too shabby, either.

    • Up and Comers

      Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and LAST JOK3R's Team may have done just that, with four players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.

    • Going Out with a Whimper

      LAST JOK3R's Team didn't end the night the way they might have liked, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

      LAST JOK3R's Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

    • This Mr. Irrelevant gets No Parade

      In terms of projected points, the choice of Dan Carpenter was the weakest pick of the final round. You had one last chance and you blew it, LAST JOK3R's Team.

    Player Analysis

      • Montee Ball, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 9
      Rethinking That One?

      Despite being an above-average player at his position, Montee Ball was the weakest value pick of the round.

      • Dez Bryant, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 12
      Stolen In Broad Daylight

      Dez Bryant was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

      • Antonio Brown, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 29
      185 More Reasons to Appreciate Antonio Brown

      Brown ranks eighth in the Yahoo Public 56212 League among WRs with 185 projected fantasy points.

      • Andrew Luck, QB
      • Round 6, Pick 52
      Was Andrew Luck Worth it at Pick No. 52?

      LAST JOK3R's Team sure hopes so. The Colts' signal-caller is projected to have 298 points this year, just a bit lower than his total from last season.

      • Dennis Pitta, TE
      • Round 7, Pick 69
      Was Dennis Pitta Worth Pick No. 69?

      LAST JOK3R's Team apparently thinks so. The Ravens' TE is projected to put up 99 points this year, after only netting 23 last season.

    Best Available

      • Nick Folk
      • Rank 231, ADP 145

    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.
