    Lord Business Draft Report Card

    B-
    Grade

    With a Pair of Cowboys Highlighting the Roster, Lord Business Will Need to Improve to Reach Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    If there was a Hall of Average, Lord Business would have a plaque. Unfortunately, there isn't, so instead they'll just have to settle for losing more often than not. This team is projected to finish in seventh-place in Stampede Blue League 6 League at 6-7-0 (1,587 points). They went after guys who can tote the rock with their early picks, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs DeMarco Murray (second round), Toby Gerhart (third round), and C.J. Spiller (fourth round). They landed the most prolific group of WRs in the league, as they have Dez Bryant, Eric Decker, Percy Harvin, and Cecil Shorts III 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

    Lord Business should pick up a new hobby, like bird watching, during Week 11. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. Along with the sixth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Lord Business.

    Draft Notes

    • Great Idea, Poor Execution

      Lord Business might require waiver wire help in Week 11, as their No. 1- (Dez Bryant), No. 2- (Eric Decker) and No. 4-ranked (Cecil Shorts III) WRs will all be idle that week.

    • Shouldering the Burden?

      Lord Business has three above-average positions on their roster: RB, WR, and TE.

    • Drink Plenty of Milk

      With an average of 7.8 years of NFL experience, Lord Business has the greatest chance of losing a player to osteoporosis.

    • Officially Mediocre

      While the bottom half of the Lord Business roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 11).

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

      Lord Business knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

    • It's How You Finish

      Lord Business made every other squad look silly after some amazing halftime adjustments, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

    Player Analysis

      • Dez Bryant, WR
      • Round 1, Pick 10
      It's Normal to Have Those Feelings at Your Age

      Terrell Owens once said "I love me some me." While T.O. falls in love with himself, Lord Business is head over heels for Dez Bryant, who's projected to lead all WRs with 314 fantasy points.

      • DeMarco Murray, RB
      • Round 2, Pick 15
      Better Lucky Than Good?

      The rest of Stampede Blue League 6 League overlooked a gem, and Lord Business made the smartest value pick of the round by taking DeMarco Murray.

      • Toby Gerhart, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 34
      He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

      With 288 touches, Toby Gerhart is projected to rank 10th in the NFL in that category. How touching, Lord Business.

      • Percy Harvin, WR
      • Round 5, Pick 58
      Returning to Greatness

      If special teams contributions count in Stampede Blue League 6 League, Lord Business may have found a gem in Percy Harvin. Including his 788 projected return yards, he ranks third in the league with 1,708 all-purpose yards.

      • Jordan Cameron, TE
      • Round 6, Pick 63
      A Big, Reliable Threat

      Jordan Cameron ranks fifth in the Stampede Blue League 6 League among TEs with 191 projected fantasy points.

    Best Available

      • Ryan Tannehill
      • Rank 147, ADP 134

    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..."
