After Some Early Gambles, Andrew B's Team Isn't Anything to Fear

Draft Summary

Andrew B's Team isn't the best team in the league, but they aren't the worst, and there is something to be said for that. After selecting fourth overall, they are projected to finish in eighth in Stampede Blue League 5 League at 5-8-0 (1,509 points). 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 Roddy White (third round), Larry Fitzgerald (fourth round), and Michael Crabtree (fifth round). They put together the bottom TE duo in the league, as they added Dwayne Allen and Jermichael Finley.

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

Schedule

Andrew B's Team can chalk up Week 9 as a loss. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the toughest slate. In addition to having the most grueling overall schedule, Andrew B's Team has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • On the Rise

    Andrew B's Team hopes to break through this season, led by six players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.

  • The First Step is Admitting You Have a Problem

    It seems like Andrew B's Team likes to gamble -- they rolled the dice on seven "high-risk" picks.

  • Indianapolis Colts Fan?

    Andrew B's Team is a believer in the hopes of the Indianapolis Colts this season, grabbing a couple of players on that team sooner than their ADPs might suggest.

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Kelvin Benjamin, Andrew B's Team pounced on him at pick No. 172.

  • A Stretch of the Imagination

    Grabbing Ahmad Bradshaw at pick 141 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Bradshaw is owned on just a handful of teams across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Matt Forte, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Does Matt Forte Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

    Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. Forte is ranked fourth in the league with 1,698 all-purpose yards.

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 21
    Rethinking That One?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, Andrew Luck was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • L. Fitzgerald, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 45
    Defensive Coordinators Plan Specifically for Fitzgerald

    Larry Fitzgerald is expected to reach paydirt 8.1 times, placing him 10th in the NFL in projected receiving TDs.

    • M. Crabtree, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 52
    Rethinking That One

    Michael Crabtree went with the 52nd pick, but is projected to fall outside of the top-30 in the NFL in both receiving TDs (32nd) and receiving yards (36th) with 5.9 and 915 respectively.

    • Frank Gore, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 69
    Was Frank Gore the Best Choice at Pick No. 69?

    Andrew B's Team apparently thinks so. The 49ers' RB is projected to get 179 points this year, after producing 191 last season.

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..."
