    Dawgs Draft Report Card


    Despite a Set of Beast RBs, DJSlickRick's Team Should Have Attempted to Draft Players That are Good

    Draft Summary

    What is that horrible smell? It smells like burnt hair. Oh, never mind, it's just the DJSlickRick's Team roster. It'll take more than a plug-in to fix this team, which is projected to finish ninth in Yahoo Public 56212 League with a record of 6-8-0 (1,317 points). They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (20th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (1st) and Arian Foster (21st), and WRs Percy Harvin (40th) and DeSean Jackson (41st). They ended up with the best group of RBs in the league, as they added Peterson, Foster, Shane Vereen, and Chris Johnson.

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


    DJSlickRick's Team should use Week 10 to consider life's great mysteries, like why abbreviation is such a long word. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. Along with the third-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for DJSlickRick's Team.

    Draft Notes

    • DJSlickRick's Team's Week 10 Opponent Will Love This

      DJSlickRick's Team's three best RBs (Adrian Peterson, Arian Foster, and Shane Vereen) will all be on bye in Week 10.

    • Earning Your Paycheck

      DJSlickRick's Team will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Kendall Wright), fourth- (Rueben Randle), and fifth-ranked (Jeremy Maclin) wideouts.

    • On the Rise

      DJSlickRick's Team hopes to break through this season, led by five players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.

    • No Back-Up No Cry

      Ignoring roster depth, DJSlickRick's Team chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

    • A Versatile Combination

      Shane Vereen can hurt opponents with his hands as well as his feet. He ranks first among RBs in projected receiving yards with 699.

    • Mr. Mendoza

      Sam Bradford is owned in only 2% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) DJSlickRick's Team has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

    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..."
