Picking fourth in the draft, Aaron's Tip-Top Team delivered a roster that even a spurned ex would have to appreciate. They're projected to finish second in Stampede Blue League 6 League at 10-3-0 (1,598 points). With their first five picks, Aaron's Tip-Top Team focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Andrew Luck (28th overall), RBs Jamaal Charles (4th) and Ray Rice (52nd), and WRs Jordy Nelson (21st) and Wes Welker (45th). They landed one of the bottom groups of WRs in the league, as they have Nelson, Welker, Dwayne Bowe, and Jeremy Maclin on their team.
Aaron's Tip-Top Team should just disappear for a while during Week 6. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a less-challenging-than-average slate. Aaron's Tip-Top Team has the opportunity to come out firing, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Aaron's Tip-Top Team will need to get busy on the waiver wire in Week 9, as their only TE (Martellus Bennett) and only K (Mason Crosby) will both be off that week.
A Kansas City Chiefs Homer
The fantasy hopes of Aaron's Tip-Top Team will rest heavily on the fortunes of the Chiefs, as they drafted four of them to their squad.
Aaron's Tip-Top Team hedged their bets by scooping up Knile Davis in the 16th round to back up Jamaal Charles, his Chiefs teammate (a first-round selection).
While the bottom half of the Aaron's Tip-Top Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 3), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 12).
Aaron's Tip-Top Team got off to a sluggish start, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.
A Pair of Proven Winners
Aaron's Tip-Top Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jamaal Charles and Jordy Nelson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
Choosy Moms Choose Jamaal
- Jamaal Charles, RB
- Round 1, Pick 4
Owners who took a chance on Jamaal Charles were rewarded nicely last year, as he was owned on more playoff rosters across Yahoo! than any other RB.
256 Excuses to Cheer for Jordy Nelson
- Jordy Nelson, WR
- Round 2, Pick 21
Nelson ranks ninth in the Stampede Blue League 6 League among wideouts with 256 projected fantasy points.
Rethinking That One?
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 3, Pick 28
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Andrew Luck was the weakest value pick of the round.
Throwing Caution to the Wind
- Ray Rice, RB
- Round 5, Pick 52
They grabbed Ray Rice with the 52nd pick, even though his ADP is only 100.1 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Milk Was a Bad Choice
- Jeremy Maclin, WR
- Round 6, Pick 69
And so was drafting Jeremy Maclin, the weakest value of the round.
If Aaron's Tip-Top Team has a desire to make a roster move, RB and WR are areas of need.

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.
