Jimi's Ganja Draft Report Card


With Too Many Reaches Early, Jimi's Ganja Looks Like Cellar Dweller

Draft Summary

Despite selecting in the top half of the first round (fourth overall), Jimi's Ganja might as well have been blindly heaving darts at the draft board to decide their picks. Opponents are going to enjoy beating this team, which is projected to finish ninth in Yahoo Public 602317 League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,488 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Ben Roethlisberger (44th overall), RB Marshawn Lynch (4th), WR Jordy Nelson (17th), and TE Travis Kelce (37th) within the first five rounds. They have a better-than-average group of WRs, as they have Nelson, Emmanuel Sanders, Jeremy Maclin, and Vincent Jackson on their team.

While Week 7 has the most players on bye for Jimi's Ganja (five), Week 9 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the most difficult slate. In addition to having the most grueling overall schedule, Jimi's Ganja also has the league's toughest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Jimi's Ganja might need to hit the waiver wire in Week 7, as their No. 1- (Jordy Nelson), No. 2- (Emmanuel Sanders) and No. 5-ranked (Davante Adams) WRs will all be resting that week.

  • TE or Bust

    TE is the only stronger-than-average position group for Jimi's Ganja.

  • Aging Stars

    The top half of the roster (from a projected points perspective) is relatively old (ranked No. 2 in the league with an average of 7.8 years of NFL experience), whereas the bottom half is fairly young (ranked No. 10 with 4.2 years).

  • Team of Champions?

    Jimi's Ganja 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: Jordy Nelson, Emmanuel Sanders, and Jeremy Maclin.

  • Don't Get Too Defensive Over This

    But Jimi's Ganja drafted Green Bay with the 84th pick, even though their ADP is only 116.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Marshawn Lynch, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Advanced Math

    If Jimi's Ganja had a nickel for every time Marshawn Lynch is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 314 nickels.

    • Jordy Nelson, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    The Alchemist

    Jimi's Ganja chose the WR most likely to turn deep balls into TD gold. Jordy Nelson is projected to lead all NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 5.6 and TDs over 40 yards with 2.2.

    • E. Sanders, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 24
    Denver Dynamite

    A bargain at his ADP last season, Sanders was one of just four WRs to notch 100 receptions in 2014. The secret is out, but Jimi's Ganja obviously knows this WR2 is as good a bet as any to post WR1-esque numbers.

    • Travis Kelce, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 37
    Haters Gonna Hate

    The rest of Yahoo Public 602317 League overlooked a gem, and Jimi's Ganja made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Travis Kelce.

    • B. Roethlisberger, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 44
    Rare Company for Roethlisberger

    Big Ben joined Aaron Rodgers as the only QBs to eclipse 4,000 yards and average at least 8.0 yards per attempt last season. He was also one of just four signal-callers to throw for 30+ TDs and have fewer than 10 interceptions on the year.

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..."
