    Jordan's Team Draft Report Card

    Grade

    Led by a Talented WR Corps, Jordan's Team Has a Loaded Roster

    Draft Summary

    The GM of Jordan's Team took the second overall pick and handled it like a seasoned professional. After putting their sweet drafting skills on display for the rest of the league, they're left with a squad that's projected to finish third in Stampede Blue League 8 League with a record of 9-4-0 (1,598 points). They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Jordy Nelson (second round), Antonio Brown (third round), and Cordarrelle Patterson (fourth round). They have the bottom group of RBs in the league, as they have Fred Jackson, Ben Tate, and Bernard Pierce to lead the way.

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

    Schedule

    Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Jordan's Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the toughest slates. Along with having the second-most taxing overall schedule, Jordan's Team also has the most difficult last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Assessing the Assets

      TE is the strongest position for Jordan's Team, though DEF and K are also better than the league's average.

    • Team of Champions

      Jordan's Team is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Jimmy Graham, Jordy Nelson, and Antonio Brown).

    • You Snooze, You Lose

      While the rest of the league slept on Jordan Matthews, Jordan's Team pounced on him at pick No. 191.

    • Mr. Mendoza

      Jordan Matthews is owned in only 7% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Jordan's Team has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

    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..."
