Christina's Team isn't the best team in the league, but they aren't the worst, and there is something to be said for that. After selecting second overall, they are projected to finish in seventh in Yahoo Public 56212 League at 6-8-0 (1,356 points). With five WRs on the roster, Christina's Team guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 142, their WRs projected average of 146 points won't be much different than the rest of the wideouts around the league. They have a quality group of RBs, as they added Jamaal Charles, Doug Martin and Terrance West to their roster.
Week 10 might require some waiver-wire magic from Christina's Team, as their top two projected scorers (Tom Brady and Philip Rivers) will be resting that weekend. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least difficult slates. Christina's Team 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.
Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away
It's likely that in Week 10, Christina's Team will either be scraping the wire or begging for a trade (Tom Brady and Philip Rivers will both be on bye). You can give Favre a call, but texting him isn't recommended.
Up and Comers
Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and Christina's Team may have done just that, with four players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Apparently Christina's Team missed the point of drafting a back-up defense. In Week 4, both Cincinnati and Denver will be on bye.
Defense Wins Championships?
Christina's Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
Does Jamaal Charles Enjoy Fajitas?
- Jamaal Charles, RB
- Round 1, Pick 2
Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Charles is projected to rank fourth in the league with 1,778 total yards.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Doug Martin, RB
- Round 2, Pick 19
Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Doug Martin had less value than any other pick of the round.
Better Lucky Than Good?
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 3, Pick 22
The rest of Yahoo Public 56212 League overlooked a gem, and Christina's Team made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Julio Jones.
Rethinking That One
- M. Crabtree, WR
- Round 4, Pick 39
Michael Crabtree may not justify his 39th overall draft pick if projections hold true. Currently, he is estimated to fall outside the NFL's top-30 in both yards (36th with 916) and TDs (32nd with 6.2).
Milk Was a Bad Choice
- Vernon Davis, TE
- Round 5, Pick 42
And so was drafting Vernon Davis, the weakest value of the round.
If Christina's Team wants to upgrade, TE and DEF are areas they could go after first.
- Garrett Graham
- Rank 149, ADP 130
- Coby Fleener
- Rank 174, ADP 135
- Indianapolis Defanse
- Rank 227, ADP 144
- Baltimore Defanse
- Rank 239, ADP 138

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.
