    Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, Who You Want? Has an Average Squad

    Draft Summary

    While Who You Want? is no world-beater, this is a team that could potentially reach the playoffs if some things go their way. Picking ninth overall, Who You Want? is projected to land in seventh place in Stampede Blue League 4 League with a record of 7-6-0 (1,551 points). With their first five picks, Who You Want? focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Cam Newton (40th overall), RBs Ryan Mathews (33rd) and Joique Bell (57th), and WRs A.J. Green (9th) and Brandon Marshall (16th). They ended up with one of the highest-scoring groups of WRs in the league, as they have Marshall, Green, Emmanuel Sanders, and DeAndre Hopkins on their team.

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

    Schedule

    Who You Want? should pick up a new hobby, like bird watching, during Week 4. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. Along with the sixth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Who You Want?.

    Draft Notes

    • QB Controversy?

      The coach of Who You Want? might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted QB (Cam Newton) and second-drafted QB (Alex Smith) have very similar seasonal point projections.

    • Big D

      Who You Want? elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

    • Digging Deep

      DeAngelo Williams is owned in only 9% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward Who You Want? for their faith! Or not.

    Player Analysis

      • A.J. Green, WR
      • Round 1, Pick 9
      267 Excuses to Cheer for A.J. Green

      Green ranks sixth in the Stampede Blue League 4 League among wideouts with 267 projected fantasy points.

      • B. Marshall, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 16
      The Power of Persuasion

      Now would be a reasonable time for Who You Want? to encourage the Stampede Blue League 4 League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Brandon Marshall and his 93 projected catches (ranked fifth in the NFL).

      • Ryan Mathews, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 33
      If it Ain't Broke

      Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Who You Want? didn't grab their first RB (Ryan Mathews) until the third round.

      • Cam Newton, QB
      • Round 4, Pick 40
      Time to Sign Up for Andy Behrens' Fantasy Camp

      Despite being selected 40th overall, Cam Newton is not projected among the NFL's top-15 in either passing TDs (24th with 20.8) or passing yards (25th with 3,537).

      • Joique Bell, RB
      • Round 5, Pick 57
      Taking a Chance

      With their fifth-round pick, Who You Want? threw caution to the wind. They took Joique Bell at pick number 57 despite an ADP of 91 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    Best Available

    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..."
