Led by an Elite Group of RBs, Brazy Will Destroy This League

Draft Summary

Brazy proved on draft day that when the lights come on, they perform, building a strong team capable of beating anyone on the schedule. They are expected to finish first in Land 9 League with a record of 10-3-0 (1,875 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 Alshon Jeffery (second round), T.Y. Hilton (third round), and Jarvis Landry (fourth round). They also landed one of the top groups of RBs in the league, as they have David Johnson, Matt Forte, Giovani Bernard, and Ameer Abdullah on their roster.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Brazy should just disappear for a while during Week 9. They have five 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 less-challenging-than-average slate. Brazy has the opportunity to start quickly, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average. However, their closing stretch of four games is expected to be tougher than average.

Draft Notes

  • Asset Management

    Brazy is loaded at WR and RB. Could they be willing to leverage some of that talent and listen to trade offers from other teams in Land 9 League?

  • Close to the Vest

    Brazy was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing eight "low-risk" players out of 17 picks.

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Laquon Treadwell, Brazy pounced on him at pick No. 173.

  • Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in Land 9 League, Brazy may have found a gem in Ameer Abdullah. Including his 596 projected return yards, he ranks seventh in the league with 1,544 all-purpose yards.

  • Digging Deep

    DeAndre Washington is owned in only 3% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward Brazy for their faith! Or not.

  • Mr. Relevant

    In terms of projected points, the choice of Mason Crosby was the strongest pick of the final round. Savvy move, Brazy.

Player Analysis

    • David Johnson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Johnson is Hungry

    And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank third in the NFL with 321 touches.

    • Alshon Jeffery, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    205 More Reasons to Appreciate Alshon Jeffery

    Jeffery ranks seventh in the Land 9 League among WRs with 205 projected fantasy points.

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 44
    Jumping on Jarvis:

    Brazy may see some WR1 potential in Landry, who was one of three players (along with Julio Jones and Antonio Brown) to see double-digit targets in each of the final four weeks of 2015.

    • Michael Floyd, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 68
    Was Michael Floyd Worth it at Pick No. 68?

    Brazy sure hopes so. The Cardinals' WR is projected to net 148 points this year, after putting up 134 last season.

    • G. Bernard, RB
    • Round 7, Pick 77
    Throwing Caution to the Wind

    They grabbed Giovani Bernard with the 77th pick, even though his ADP is only 101.1 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Best Available

Brazy could potentially upgrade DEF and TE, but DEF is the position they'll want to focus on first.

    • Philadelphia Defense
    • Rank 206, ADP 142
    • Green Bay Defense
    • Rank 236, ADP 133
    • Indianapolis Defense
    • Rank 243, ADP 130
    • Washington Defense
    • Rank 261, 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..."
