Maybe Krushers was out partying with Gronk and autodrafted? Hopefully that's their excuse as they are projected to finish 11th in stanly docs League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,433 points). With their first five picks, Krushers focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Ben Roethlisberger (30th overall), RBs Justin Forsett (19th) and Ameer Abdullah (43rd), and WRs Antonio Brown (6th) and Davante Adams (54th). They built the worst RB tandem in the league, as they have Forsett and T.J. Yeldon on the team.
Krushers can chalk up Week 11 as a loss. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. Krushers has the opportunity to close with a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Carrying the Load
Krushers has four above-average positions with TE and WR projected to lead the way.
May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor
Krushers might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Ben Roethlisberger) and second-drafted QB (Colin Kaepernick) have similar seasonal point projections.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Krushers will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 8, as their only K (Dan Carpenter) and only DEF (Philadelphia) will both be on bye that week.
Good to Have Balance, Right?
While the bottom half of the Krushers roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).
A Dominating Duo
Krushers has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Antonio Brown and Justin Forsett) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
It's How You Finish
Krushers must have had a motivational halftime speech, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
Krushers Just Landed a Target Machine
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 6
Joining Demaryius Thomas (184) as the only players to see 170+ targets last season, Brown never got fewer than nine looks in a game after Week 1, logging a grand total of 181.
Rare Company for Roethlisberger
- B. Roethlisberger, QB
- Round 3, Pick 30
Big Ben joined Aaron Rodgers as the only QBs to eclipse 4,000 yards and average at least 8.0 yards per attempt last season. He was also one of just four signal-callers to throw for 30+ TDs and have fewer than 10 interceptions on the year.
A Bit of a Reach
- Ameer Abdullah, RB
- Round 4, Pick 43
Krushers went out on a limb with their fourth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Ameer Abdullah has an ADP of 79.8, but he was grabbed at pick No. 43. Patience is a virtue, Krushers.
Returning to Greatness
- Jarvis Landry, WR
- Round 6, Pick 67
If special teams contributions count in stanly docs League, Krushers may have found a gem in Jarvis Landry. Including his 1,218 projected return yards, he ranks first in the league with 2,169 all-purpose yards.
Was Jason Witten Worth Pick No. 78?
- Jason Witten, TE
- Round 7, Pick 78
Krushers apparently thinks so. The Cowboys' TE is projected to put up 110 points this year, after getting 100 last season.
If Krushers wants to upgrade, K and RB are areas they could go after first.
- Nick Folk
- Rank 219, ADP 144
- Randy Bullock
- Rank 225, ADP 146
- Tevin Coleman
- Rank 94, ADP 107
- David Cobb
- Rank 106, ADP 125

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.
