Projected to Finish Second, I.feel.pretty. Has a Team to Watch

Draft Summary

Watch out. Somebody let I.feel.pretty. loose in the draft room. When the smoke cleared, all that was left was an elite squad capable of destroying opponents at will. They are projected to finish second in The League with a record of 10-3-0 (2,673 points). With five WRs on the roster, I.feel.pretty. has a quality group of receivers; their WRs are projected to average 252 points this season, near the league average of 234. They have one of the highest-scoring WR tandems in the league, as they added Demaryius Thomas and Calvin Johnson.

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

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, I.feel.pretty. has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the easiest schedule. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, I.feel.pretty. has the league's second-toughest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Sky's the Limit

    With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, I.feel.pretty. hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

    I.feel.pretty. knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • This Mr. Irrelevant gets No Parade

    In terms of projected points, the choice of Steven Hauschka was the weakest pick of the final round. You had one last chance and you blew it, I.feel.pretty.

Player Analysis

    • Jamaal Charles, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    Does Jamaal Charles Enjoy Fajitas?

    Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Charles is projected to rank ninth in the league with 1,547 all-purpose yards.

    • D. Thomas, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    The Man at Mile-High

    Across all Yahoo! leagues last season, just three WRs (Brown, Sanders, Maclin) appeared more often on first-place rosters than Thomas.

    • Calvin Johnson, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 18
    Still the Man in the Motor City

    Megatron recorded double-digit targets in nine games last year, and when healthy, there's little reason to think that he's not still a top-10 option at WR. Pick No. 18 might have been a bargain for I.feel.pretty.

    • Jimmy Graham, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 31
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    Jimmy Graham was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

    • L. Murray, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 34
    It Was a Learning Experience

    Hey, remember that time I.feel.pretty. took Latavius Murray WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Murray was the weakest value pick of the round.

Best Available

There are three positions that I.feel.pretty. could look to improve, including K and TE, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Matt Prater
    • Rank 211, ADP 119
    • Justin Tucker
    • Rank 212, ADP 122
    • Tyler Eifert
    • Rank 130, ADP 131
    • Larry Donnell
    • Rank 137, ADP 132
  • Bye Week Points Lost

  • Avg Points by Position vs League

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..."
