Maybe if sandy dog purchases a lift kit and some giant tires for this roster it won't seem so average. The playoffs are not out of reach for this team, but it will require some effort. They are projected to finish sixth in Lion Mike's with a record of 4-6-0 (3,003 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Andrew Luck (8th overall), RB Melvin Gordon (33rd), WR Emmanuel Sanders (28th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (13th) within the first five rounds. They built the most prolific TE duo in the league, as they have Gronkowski and Owen Daniels.
sandy dog should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why there's only one word for thesaurus. That's still time better spent than checking fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a softer-than-average schedule. sandy dog has the opportunity to finish the season on a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
TE or Bust
Unfortunately, TE is the only strong position on sandy dog. Fortunately, there's always next year.
sandy dog knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.
Team of Champions?
sandy dog is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Andrew Luck, Rob Gronkowski, and Emmanuel Sanders.
Defense Wins Championships?
sandy dog chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
Blake Bortles is owned in only 2% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) sandy dog has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.
Blake Bortles Likes His Eggs Scrambled
And a little runny, eh? Bortles is projected to deliver 372 rushing yards, and ranks fifth among QBs in that category.
sandy dog Made Sure Luck Was On Their Side
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 1, Pick 8
A bargain at his ADP last year, Andrew Luck was owned on more playoff rosters and championship rosters across Yahoo! than any other QB.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Rob Gronkowski, TE
- Round 2, Pick 13
Rob Gronkowski was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
- E. Sanders, WR
- Round 3, Pick 28
A bargain at his ADP last season, Sanders was one of just four WRs to notch 100 receptions in 2014. Only one other WR (Antonio Brown) appeared more often on championship rosters across Yahoo! last season.
How Rebellious of You
- Melvin Gordon, RB
- Round 4, Pick 33
sandy dog said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (Melvin Gordon).
Let Me Check it Again
- Sammy Watkins, WR
- Round 6, Pick 53
Why can't I find Sammy Watkins on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round flier."
While sandy dog is expected to be weak across five positions, K is definitely their worst unit and an area of need.
- Phil Dawson
- Rank 244, ADP 128
- Nick Novak
- Rank 247, ADP 131

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..."
