Sometimes in life we make mistakes. FINAL ONE! will hopefully use this one as a learning opportunity, so in future drafts they will perform much better. After selecting seventh overall, they are projected to go 3-7-0 (2,994 points) and finish 10th in Lion Mike's League. They must have felt like they could roll the dice on the running back position, waiting until the seventh round to grab their first RB. FINAL ONE! took Joseph Randle with the 67th overall pick. They landed the top QB duo in the league, as they have Drew Brees and Tony Romo on the roster.
FINAL ONE! should use Week 9 to finally read War and Peace. Anything that isn't following their fantasy football team. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-challenging-than-average schedule. Along with having the third-most grueling overall schedule, FINAL ONE! has the league's toughest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
FINAL ONE! must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 9, both Steven Hauschka and Randy Bullock will be on bye.
Root, Root, Root for the Home Team
FINAL ONE! is a believer in the hopes of the Detroit Lions this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.
FINAL ONE! knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.
FINAL ONE! elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
Don't Get Defensive Over This
But FINAL ONE! drafted Detroit with the 94th pick, even though their ADP is only 138.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.
- O. Beckham Jr., WR
- Round 1, Pick 7
A 21-year-old rookie who was injured to begin the year, Beckham concluded 2014 with 21 targets in Week 17 against Philadelphia. No other player saw more targets in a single game all season.
He's Got an Ability to Simplify Things
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 3, Pick 27
As Mitch Hedberg once said, "Every book is a children's book if the kid can read." With 875 projected fantasy points, Drew Brees is a kid who'll turn opposing secondaries into childrens' books each week.
Will a Run-Heavy Offense Hurt Production?
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 4, Pick 34
FINAL ONE! sure hopes not. Though he might not put up New Orleans-esque numbers, Graham is almost certain to be one of Russell Wilson's favorite targets moving forward.
Was Tony Romo the Best Choice at Pick No. 54?
- Tony Romo, QB
- Round 6, Pick 54
FINAL ONE! apparently thinks so. The Cowboys' signal-caller is projected to score 746 points this year, nearly identical to his total last year.
It Was a Learning Experience
- Joseph Randle, RB
- Round 7, Pick 67
Hey, remember that time FINAL ONE! took Joseph Randle WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Randle was the weakest value pick of the round.
While FINAL ONE! is projected to have three subpar positions, RB is clearly their weakest unit and should be upgraded first.
- Tevin Coleman
- Rank 94, ADP 107
- Devonta Freeman
- Rank 101, ADP 123
- David Cobb
- Rank 106, ADP 125
- Tre Mason
- Rank 110, ADP 120

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.
