Despite an Exciting Set of WRs, Levi's Team Has a Solidly Average Roster

Draft Summary

Mediocrity isn't for everyone Levi's Team, so feel proud. Ok, maybe it is. But hey, you showed up, and that's the important thing. After this average draft performance, Levi's Team is projected to go 7-7-0 (1,541 points) and finish seventh in Yahoo Public 576251 League. They used their first three picks on wideouts Julio Jones (4th overall), Keenan Allen (17th), and Alshon Jeffery (24th), giving them a competitive "500" team that should dominate the playground in no time. This group will have to produce in order for Levi's Team to have a good season, as they are the most prolific group of WRs in the league.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Levi's Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the entire season, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Levi's Team.

Draft Notes

  • Up, Up, and Away

    With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Levi's Team hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Levi's Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    Levi's Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Julio Jones and Thomas Rawls) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Super Sleepers

    Dwayne Allen and Corey Coleman are a couple of late-round fliers with upside for Levi's Team.

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..."
