Johnny Waterboy got saddled with a late draft position (seventh overall) and didn't respond. The poor draft slot will have to serve as the excuse as to why they are projected to land in 12th place in Stampede Blue League 4 League with a record of 0-13-0 (1,453 points). With their first five picks, Johnny Waterboy focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Andrew Luck (31st overall), RBs Bishop Sankey (42nd) and Rashad Jennings (55th), and WRs Demaryius Thomas (7th) and Alshon Jeffery (18th). They have the top WR tandem in the league, as they have Thomas and Jeffery on the team.
Johnny Waterboy should use Week 10 to consider life's great mysteries, like why Greenland is ice and Iceland is green? It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the toughest slates. Johnny Waterboy has the opportunity to exit the gates quickly, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for Johnny Waterboy, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (Bernard Pierce) and fourth-ranked (Andre Williams) RBs.
Good Luck With That One!
Johnny Waterboy will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Sammy Watkins), fourth- (Kelvin Benjamin), and fifth-ranked (Kenny Britt) wideouts.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Johnny Waterboy will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 10, as their only K (Nick Novak) and only DEF (Indianapolis) will both be on bye that week.
No Back-Up No Cry
Ignoring roster depth, Johnny Waterboy chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).
A Pair of Proven Winners
Johnny Waterboy has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Demaryius Thomas and Alshon Jeffery) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
Johnny Waterboy Went All YOLO Here
Grabbing Donald Brown at pick 114 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Brown is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
The Power of Persuasion
- D. Thomas, WR
- Round 1, Pick 7
Now would be a reasonable time for Johnny Waterboy to encourage the Stampede Blue League 4 League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Demaryius Thomas and his 106 projected catches (ranked second in the NFL).
257 More Reasons to Appreciate Alshon Jeffery
- Alshon Jeffery, WR
- Round 2, Pick 18
Jeffery ranks eighth in the Stampede Blue League 4 League among WRs with 257 projected fantasy points.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 3, Pick 31
Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Andrew Luck had less value than any other pick of the round.
How Rebellious of You
- Bishop Sankey, RB
- Round 4, Pick 42
Johnny Waterboy said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (Bishop Sankey).
It Was a Learning Experience
- Andre Williams, RB
- Round 7, Pick 79
Hey, remember that time Johnny Waterboy took Andre Williams WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Williams was the weakest value pick of the round.
With four subpar positions on Johnny Waterboy, DEF and RB are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.
- Chicago Defanse
- Rank 208, ADP 122
- Baltimore Defanse
- Rank 233, ADP 143
- Chris Ivory
- Rank 122, ADP 124
- BenJarvus Green-Ellis
- Rank 188, ADP 118

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.
