If there was a Hall of Average, David's Team would have a plaque. Unfortunately, there isn't, so instead they'll just have to settle for losing more often than not. This team is projected to finish in seventh-place in Yahoo Public 602317 League at 6-8-0 (1,517 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Russell Wilson (35th overall), RB Matt Forte (15th), WR DeSean Jackson (46th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (6th) within the first five rounds. They ended up with the most prolific TE tandem in the league, as they have Gronkowski and Jordan Reed on their team.
David's Team might as well plan a vacation for Week 8. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for David's Team.
Assessing the Assets
TE is the strongest position for David's Team, though DEF and RB are also better than the league's average.
Show Some ID
David's Team isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 5.3 years of NFL experience.
Team of Champions?
David's Team is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Rob Gronkowski, Matt Forte, and Justin Forsett.
Putting Their Best Foot Forward
David's Team knows this isn't European football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
David's Team nabbed a sleeper in Sam Bradford with pick No. 126.
- Rob Gronkowski, TE
- Round 1, Pick 6
Across all Yahoo! leagues, no Tight End appeared on first-place rosters more often than Rob Gronkowski last year.
Feed Thy Beast
- Matt Forte, RB
- Round 2, Pick 15
Matt Forte will get the ball early and often, projected to finish fourth in the league with 317 touches.
Knowing When to Tuck it in and Run
- Russell Wilson, QB
- Round 4, Pick 35
He won't get too flashy in the passing game, but the ability to create with his legs makes Wilson a legitimate threat to NFL defenses -- and to future fantasy opponents of David's Team.
Let Me Check it Again
- DeSean Jackson, WR
- Round 5, Pick 46
Why can't I find DeSean Jackson on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round flier."
Was Keenan Allen Worth it at Pick No. 55?
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 6, Pick 55
David's Team sure hopes so. The Chargers' WR is projected to put up 151 points this year, after only netting 98 last season.
There are three positions that David's Team could look to improve, including WR and K, which look like the biggest areas of need.

- Rank 129, ADP 130
- Terrance Williams
- Rank 130, ADP 125
- Randy Bullock
- Rank 228, ADP 146
- Josh Brown

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.
