Led by a Talented WR Corps, Sean Is a Team to Watch Out For

Draft Summary

Sean took a high draft pick and turned it into a playoff-caliber squad with a projected record of 7-6-0 (1,441). They should be able to roll through most of Tom Donovan's Son League on their way to a projected sixth-place finish. They obviously understand how important the running back position is in fantasy football. They used three of their first five picks on RBs Justin Forsett (second round), Frank Gore (third round), and Doug Martin (fifth round). They have the bottom TE duo in the league, as they have Larry Donnell and Scott Chandler on their team.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Week 11 might not be the highest scoring week for Sean, as their top two projected scorers (Eli Manning and Antonio Brown) will have a bye week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a tougher-than-average slate. Although they have the sixth-most grueling overall schedule, Sean actually has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Earning Your Paycheck

    Sean will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Jarvis Landry), fourth- (Torrey Smith), and fifth-ranked (Nelson Agholor) wideouts.

  • Positional Fortitude

    Sean has four positions that are stronger than league average. While RB, K, and QB are projected to be good, WR is the best on Sean.

  • Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up

    Sean got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    Sean has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Antonio Brown and Justin Forsett) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Single Serving

    Sean apparently thinks Eli Manning and Mason Crosby don't require back-ups.

  • Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, Sean got a steal in the ninth round, when they selected Eli Manning (102nd overall pick vs. ADP of 71.5).

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    Sean Found Their WR1

    Brown paced all wideouts with 129 receptions and 1,698 yards last season. Only Demaryius Thomas (184) got more targets than Brown's 181, and only Dez Bryant (16) had more TDs than Brown's 13.

    • Frank Gore, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 30
    Frank Gore Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. Sean should be in decent shape if Gore gets his 289 projected touches this year.

    • Amari Cooper, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 43
    Derek Carr's New Toy

    And now Sean gets to play, too. Cooper's projected to finish in the top-20 for receptions this year, something that hasn't happened in Oakland since Jerry Porter ten years ago.

    • Doug Martin, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 54
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Doug Martin, the weakest value of the round.

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 67
    Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in Tom Donovan's Son League, Sean may have found a gem in Jarvis Landry. Including his 1,218 projected return yards, he ranks first in the league with 2,169 all-purpose yards.

Best Available

Sean has one below-average position, TE, that they should attempt to upgrade.

    • Dwayne Allen
    • Rank 143, ADP 128
    • Josh Hill
    • Rank 147, ADP 131
    • Charles Clay
    • Rank 171, ADP 127
    • Heath Miller
    • Rank 195, ADP 124

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..."
