Loaded With Chiefs, Aaron's Tip-Top Team Wins at Fantasy Football and Life

Draft Summary

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.

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

Schedule

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.

Draft Notes

  • 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.

  • Golden Handcuff

    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).

  • Officially Mediocre

    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).

  • Starting Slowly

    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.

Player Analysis

    • Jamaal Charles, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 4

    • Round 5, Pick 52
    Throwing Caution to the Wind

    They grabbed Ray Rice with the 52nd pick, even though his ADP is only 100.1 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Jeremy Maclin, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 69
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Jeremy Maclin, the weakest value of the round.

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..."
