Led by an Elite Group of RBs, Josh's Majestic Team Crushed This Draft

Draft Summary

Josh's Majestic Team was able to invest the sixth pick well and looks positioned for some nice returns over the season. The proceeds from this draft include an overall projected finish of third in Stampede Blue League 6 League, as well an estimated 1,656 points and a record of 9-4-0. They went after guys who can tote the rock with their early picks, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs Montee Ball (second round), Le'Veon Bell (third round), and Rashad Jennings (fourth round). They put together the highest-scoring group of WRs in the league, as they added Calvin Johnson, Pierre Garcon and Rueben Randle for their rotation.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

Week 4 might require some artful managing from Josh's Majestic Team. 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 one of the easiest slates. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, Josh's Majestic Team has the second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Carrying the Load

    Josh's Majestic Team has four above-average positions with RB and WR projected to lead the way.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Josh's Majestic Team must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 4, both Matt Prater and Steven Hauschka will be on bye.

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

    Josh's Majestic Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Josh's Majestic Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • The Bargain Whisperer

    Josh's Majestic Team was hunting for deals throughout the draft, snapping up five steals in the first 10 rounds (including Matt Prater, Greg Olsen, and St. Louis).

  • The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Josh's Majestic Team got a steal in snatching Matt Prater in the ninth round (102nd overall pick vs. ADP of 79.3).

Player Analysis

    • Calvin Johnson, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    The Alchemist

    Josh's Majestic Team chose the WR most likely to turn deep balls into TD gold. Calvin Johnson is projected to lead all NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 4.8 and TDs over 40 yards with 2.

    • Montee Ball, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 19
    Mr. Do-It-All

    Montee Ball is projected to finish eighth in the league with 1,454 total yards (1,030 rushing, 424 receiving).

    • R. Jennings, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 43
    Apparently ADP is Overrated

    With their fourth-round pick, Josh's Majestic Team pulled the trigger. They took Rashad Jennings at pick number 43 despite an ADP of just 58.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Nick Foles, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 67
    A Super Duper Signal-Caller

    Nick Foles is projected to rack up 393 points this year, enough to rank seventh among all QBs.

    • Greg Olsen, TE
    • Round 7, Pick 78
    Was the 78th Pick the Right Time for Greg Olsen?

    Josh's Majestic Team apparently believes it is. The Panthers' tight end is projected to have 189 points this year, just a bit lower than his total from last year.

Best Available

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..."
