Numero uno parlayed a solid draft slot (first overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 6-8-0 (1,582 points), they're projected to finish fourth in Stupid loser League. If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Antonio Brown (first round), Amari Cooper (third round), and Tyler Lockett (fifth round). This group will have to produce in order for Numero uno to have a good season, as they are the highest-scoring group of WRs in the league.
Numero uno should use Week 8 to consider life's great mysteries, like why abbreviation is such a long word. 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 least challenging slates. Numero uno has the opportunity to close with a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
A Seattle Seahawks Fan, Perhaps?
Numero uno reached three times to draft a Seattle Seahawks player.
Anyone Else Need a Tight End in Stupid loser League?
The trade market may heat up around Week 5, as both Jimmy Graham and Coby Fleener will be on bye for Numero uno.
May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor
Numero uno might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Ben Roethlisberger) and second-drafted QB (Derek Carr) have similar seasonal point projections.
Numero uno minimized risk by choosing six consistent players among their 15 picks.
Good to Have Balance, Right?
While the bottom half of the Numero uno roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 2), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 6).
If other Yahoo! users are right, Numero uno got a steal in the ninth round, when they selected Carlos Hyde (65th overall pick vs. ADP of 35.8).
Death, Taxes, and Antonio Brown's Reliable Hands
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 1
Brown is projected to catch an NFL-leading 132 balls this year.
Like a Prancing Unicorn
- B. Roethlisberger, QB
- Round 2, Pick 16
Ben Roethlisberger is a fantasy dream. He's predicted to finish fourth in the NFL in passing TDs and second in passing yards. If he lives up to those numbers, it should mean good things for Numero uno.
How Rebellious of You
- DeMarco Murray, RB
- Round 4, Pick 32
Numero uno said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (DeMarco Murray).
Milk Was a Bad Choice
- Tyler Lockett, WR
- Round 5, Pick 33
And so was drafting Tyler Lockett, the weakest value of the round.
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 6, Pick 48
With their sixth-round pick, Numero uno pulled the trigger. They drafted Jimmy Graham at pick number 48 despite an ADP of just 117 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Numero uno could potentially upgrade RB and QB, but RB is the position they'll want to focus on first.
- Jeremy Hill
- Rank 53, ADP 63
- Jonathan Stewart
- Rank 57, ADP 63
- Matt Jones
- Rank 59, ADP 80
- Dion Lewis
- Rank 68, ADP 89

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.
