Projected to Finish Fifth, jay's Glorious Team Will Be a Tough Out

Draft Summary

jay's Glorious Team took a high draft pick and turned it into a playoff-caliber squad with a projected record of 8-6-0 (1,519). They should be able to roll through most of Yahoo Public 602317 League on their way to a projected fifth-place finish. With their first five picks, jay's Glorious Team aimed for balance, selecting QB Drew Brees (39th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (2nd) and Arian Foster (19th), and WRs A.J. Green (22nd) and Martavis Bryant (42nd). They built one of the highest-scoring QB combos in the league, as they added Brees and Teddy Bridgewater to their squad.
