It was almost too hard to watch as Stevie B's Team took the sixth pick and drove any playoff hopes they had right off a cliff. They are projected to finish 0-13-0 (1,422), bad enough for a 12th-place finish in Stampede Blue League 5 League. They made it a point of focus to load up on pass-catchers, using four of their first seven selections to snag WRs Calvin Johnson (first round), Percy Harvin (fourth round), Kendall Wright (sixth round), and Emmanuel Sanders (seventh round). A lot will be expected of this group, as they are one of the most prolific groups of WRs in the league.
Stevie B's Team should pick up a new hobby, like bird watching, during Week 4. They have seven players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the toughest slates. Stevie B's Team could run into an early buzz saw, as the first four games of their season are projected to be more difficult than the league average.
Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for Stevie B's Team, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (Ben Tate) and fourth-ranked (Jonathan Grimes) RBs.
Not Something to Brag About
DEF is the only above-average position on Stevie B's Team.
Up and Comers
Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and Stevie B's Team may have done just that, with five players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.
It appears that Stevie B's Team likes to gamble, as they took chances on seven volatile selections.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Stevie B's Team will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 10, as their only TE (Ladarius Green) and only DEF (New England) will both be idle that week.
Going Out with a Whimper
Stevie B's Team didn't end the night the way they might have liked, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
The Standard by Which All Others are Measured
- Calvin Johnson, WR
- Round 1, Pick 6
Often the lone wideout taken in the first round in 2013, Megatron lived up to the expectations and was owned on more playoff teams across Yahoo! than any other WR.
- Montee Ball, RB
- Round 2, Pick 19
Montee Ball is projected to finish eighth in the league with 1,454 total yards (1,030 rushing, 424 receiving).
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Alfred Morris, RB
- Round 3, Pick 30
Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Alfred Morris had less value than any other pick of the round.
Returning to Greatness
- Percy Harvin, WR
- Round 4, Pick 43
If special teams contributions count in Stampede Blue League 5 League, Stevie B's Team may have found a gem in Percy Harvin. Including his 788 projected return yards, he ranks third in the league with 1,708 all-purpose yards.
Do You Know if Tom Brady is Religious?
- Tom Brady, QB
- Round 5, Pick 54
With 398 projected points, Stevie B's Team is hoping Brady will be the answer to their prayers.
While Stevie B's Team is projected to have five below-average positions, K is clearly their weakest unit and should be upgraded first.

- Rank 230, ADP 145
- Shaun Suisham
- Rank 232, ADP 146
- Graham Gano
- Rank 239, ADP 146
- Matt Bryant
- Rank 247, ADP 134

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.
