    Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, Dirty Harry Will Make Opponents Regret Playing Fantasy Football

    Draft Summary

    Picking fourth in the draft, Dirty Harry delivered a roster that even a spurned ex would have to appreciate. They're projected to finish first in Stampede Blue League 7 League at 11-2-0 (1,645 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Julio Jones (second round), Antonio Brown (third round), and Roddy White (fourth round). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, Dirty Harry will benefit. They are the top group of WRs in the league.

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

    Schedule

    Dirty Harry can chalk up Week 9 as a loss. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the easiest slates. Corresponding with the third-easiest overall schedule, Dirty Harry also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • On Autopilot

      Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for Dirty Harry, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (Joique Bell) and fourth-ranked (DeAngelo Williams) RBs.

    • The Sky's the Limit

      With six players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Dirty Harry hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

    • A Talented Trio

      Dirty Harry has three positions on their roster that are stronger than the league's average (WR, QB, and TE).

    • Great Idea, Poor Execution

      Dirty Harry will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 4, as their only K (Jay Feely) and only DEF (Cleveland) will both be on bye that week.

    • Top Heavy

      The top half of the Dirty Harry roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 2). The bottom of the roster, unfortunately, is rated as the league's weakest.

    • My One and Only

      Ignoring roster depth, Dirty Harry chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).

    Player Analysis

      • Jamaal Charles, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 4
      Choosy Moms Choose Jamaal

      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.

      • Julio Jones, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 21
      Better Lucky Than Good?

      The rest of Stampede Blue League 7 League overlooked a gem, and Dirty Harry made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Julio Jones.

      • Antonio Brown, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 28
      The Power of Persuasion

      Now would be a reasonable time for Dirty Harry to encourage the Stampede Blue League 7 League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Antonio Brown and his 95 projected catches (ranked fourth in the NFL).

      • Joique Bell, RB
      • Round 5, Pick 52
      Apparently ADP is Overrated

      With their fifth-round pick, Dirty Harry pulled the trigger. They took Joique Bell at pick number 52 despite an ADP of just 89.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.

      • Shane Vereen, RB
      • Round 6, Pick 69
      He Can Catch, Too

      Shane Vereen is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks first among RBs in projected receiving yards with 639.

    Best Available

    With three below-average positions on Dirty Harry, K and RB are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.

      • Shaun Suisham
      • Rank 232, ADP 146
      • Matt Bryant
      • Rank 247, ADP 135
      • LeGarrette Blount

    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..."
