This draft by Morning WoodHead was like a finely tuned Peyton Manning-led offense, with all the pieces falling into place. Just like Peyton's offense, Morning WoodHead is expected to score a lot of points this season and finish first in Rejects League at 12-1-0 (1,976 points). With six RBs on the roster, Morning WoodHead has a quality backfield; their RBs are projected to average 170 points this season, close to the league average of 172. They landed the best WR tandem in the league, as they added Julio Jones and Randall Cobb.
Morning WoodHead chose to use none of their two keeper spots, instead leaving their fantasy fate solely in the hands of the draft.
Week 5 would be a good opportunity for Morning WoodHead to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the least difficult schedule. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, Morning WoodHead also has the softest last four games of the season.
Good Luck With That One!
Morning WoodHead will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Charles Johnson), fourth- (Kendall Wright), and fifth-ranked (Nelson Agholor) wideouts.
TE is the strongest position for Morning WoodHead, though DEF and WR aren't too shabby either.
Separating the Wheat from the Chaff
At three different positions, Morning WoodHead picked up projected top-3 players (Rob Gronkowski, Julio Jones, and Houston).
Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?
With seven "low-risk" players among their 16 picks, Morning WoodHead is looking for dependable help.
I Keep Getting Older
And they stay the same age. Morning WoodHead isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 3.6 years of NFL experience.
A Dominating Duo
Morning WoodHead has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Rob Gronkowski and Randall Cobb) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
And It Wasn't Even Close
- Rob Gronkowski, TE
- Round 1, Pick 10
Across all Yahoo! leagues, no Tight End appeared more often on first-place rosters than Gronk last year.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 2, Pick 15
Julio Jones was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
The Heist Is On
- Randall Cobb, WR
- Round 3, Pick 34
The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Morning WoodHead got a steal in snatching Randall Cobb in the third round (34th overall pick vs. ADP of 23.9).
How Rebellious of You
- Lamar Miller, RB
- Round 4, Pick 39
Morning WoodHead said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (Lamar Miller).
- J. Stewart, RB
- Round 5, Pick 58
With their fifth-round pick, Morning WoodHead pulled the trigger. They drafted Jonathan Stewart at pick number 58 despite an ADP of just 77.8 across all Yahoo! leagues.
If Morning WoodHead has a desire to make a roster move, QB and RB are areas of need.
- Jameis Winston
- Rank 145, ADP 123
- Marcus Mariota
- Rank 150, ADP 121
- David Johnson
- Rank 143, ADP 127
- Andre Williams
- Rank 151, ADP 120

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.
