When a bottom-half draft slot yields top-half results, that's the sign of a strong effort by the GM. Such was the case with Show Me Your TD's, which flipped its 10th overall pick into a projected fifth-place finish in Teke Football League XVII-A League (9-4-0, 1,571 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Mike Evans (second round), Sammy Watkins (third round), and Michael Floyd (fifth round). These players will be heavily relied upon by Show Me Your TD's, as they are a good group of WRs.
Show Me Your TD's can chalk up Week 10 as a loss. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the least challenging slates. Corresponding with the second-easiest overall schedule, Show Me Your TD's also has the softest last four games of the season.
Up, Up, and Away
With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Show Me Your TD's hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
Show Me Your TD's nabbed a sleeper in Brock Osweiler with pick No. 206.
The Bargain Whisperer
Show Me Your TD's was hunting for steals throughout the draft, snapping up a trio of bargains in the first 9 rounds (Graham Gano, Denver, and Andrew Luck).
If other Yahoo! users are right, Show Me Your TD's got a steal in the ninth round, when they selected Graham Gano (122nd overall pick vs. ADP of 83.9).
A Stretch of the Imagination
Grabbing Shane Vereen at pick 178 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Vereen is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
In terms of projected points, the choice of Brock Osweiler was the strongest pick of the final round. Savvy move, Show Me Your TD's.
He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy
- E. Elliott, RB
- Round 1, Pick 10
With 313 touches, Ezekiel Elliott is projected to rank fourth in the NFL in that category. How touching, Show Me Your TD's.
171 Excuses to Cheer for Mike Evans

- Round 2, Pick 19
Evans ranks 10th in the Teke Football League XVII-A League among wideouts with 171 projected fantasy points.
- Sammy Watkins, WR
- Round 3, Pick 38
Show Me Your TD's chose a WR who's highly likely to turn a deep ball into TD gold. Sammy Watkins is projected to rank fourth among NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 6.1 and TDs over 40 yards with 2.3.
Do You Know if Andrew Luck is Religious?
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 4, Pick 47
With 362 projected points, Show Me Your TD's is hoping Luck will be the answer to their prayers.
Rethinking That One
- Michael Floyd, WR
- Round 5, Pick 66
While drafted 66th overall, Michael Floyd isn't projected among the NFL's top-30 in either receiving TDs (35th with 6.3) or receiving yards (34th with 940).
If Show Me Your TD's is looking to make a roster move, WR is a position they could look to upgrade first.
- Ted Ginn Jr.
- Rank 154, ADP 120
- Terrance Williams
- Rank 159, ADP 124

- Rank 182, ADP 132
- Will Fuller
- Rank 184, ADP 127

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.
