    kgb7166 Draft Report Card

    B-
    Grade

    After Some Early Gambles, kgb7166 Will Be Alone at the Bottom

    Draft Summary

    What's important kgb7166 is that you have fun, regardless of the final score. Like that quote from Vince Lombardi, "Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing." Oh wait no, that's not the right quote for this. Turns out there aren't many quotes about having fun and losing, so let's just get to the projections. kgb7166 is expected to finish ninth in Stampede Blue League 7 League with a record of 5-8-0 (1,566 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (19th overall), RB Zac Stacy (30th), WR Wes Welker (43rd), and TE Jimmy Graham (6th) within the first five rounds. They built one of the best TE duos in the league, as they have Graham and Tim Wright 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

    kgb7166 should use Week 4 to consider life's great mysteries, like why Greenland is ice and Iceland is green? It would be better 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 weaker-than-average slate. kgb7166 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.

    Draft Notes

    • A Dominating Duo

      kgb7166 has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jimmy Graham and Zac Stacy) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    • kgb7166 Went All YOLO Here

      Grabbing Ahmad Bradshaw at pick 126 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Bradshaw is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Take One Play Off and He Burns You

      Kenny Stills is a classic deep-ball weapon, ranking fourth among NFL WRs in percentage of receptions over 40 yards (6.2%).

    • This Mr. Irrelevant gets No Parade

      In terms of projected points, the choice of Tim Wright was the weakest pick of the final round. You had one last chance and you blew it, kgb7166.

    Player Analysis

      • Jimmy Graham, TE
      • Round 1, Pick 6
      A Return to Huge Numbers

      Sean Payton's return to the Saints' sideline seemed to work out for Jimmy Graham, who was owned on more championship rosters across Yahoo! than any other TE.

      • Aaron Rodgers, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 19
      Do You Know if Aaron Rodgers is Religious?

      With 424 projected points, kgb7166 is hoping Rodgers will be the answer to their prayers.

      • Zac Stacy, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 30
      If it Ain't Broke

      Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, kgb7166 didn't grab their first RB (Zac Stacy) until the third round.

      • Frank Gore, RB
      • Round 5, Pick 54
      Paydirt Found

      Frank Gore is expected to finish seventh in the NFL in rushing TDs with 8.6.

      • T. Williams, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 67
      Was Terrance Williams Worth it at Pick No. 67?

      kgb7166 sure hopes so. The Cowboys' WR is projected to improve to the tune of 200 points this year, after only putting up 146 last season.

    Best Available

    With three subpar positions on kgb7166, WR and RB are expected to be the worst of those potential 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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
