    With a Projected Finish of Fourth, team jdub Has Great Shot at Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. team jdub put together a quality team and is projected to finish in fourth-place in BNFL League at 8-6-0 (1,885 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (14th overall), RB Eddie Lacy (7th), WR Antonio Brown (27th), and TE Julius Thomas (34th) within the first five rounds. They landed a quality group of RBs, as they have Lacy, Pierre Thomas, Frank Gore, and Maurice Jones-Drew on their team.

    Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    team jdub should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why Greenland is ice and Iceland is green? It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the most challenging slates. Along with having the second-most demanding overall schedule, team jdub has the league's toughest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Positional Fortitude

      team jdub has five positions that are better than league average. While QB, WR, and RB are projected to be good, TE is the strongest on team jdub.

    • Close to the Vest

      team jdub was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

    • Get Off My Lawn

      With an average of 7.7 years of NFL experience, team jdub is the oldest and by default, least exciting team in the league.

    • Team of Champions?

      team jdub is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Eddie Lacy, Antonio Brown, and Julius Thomas.

    • Take One Play Off and He Burns You

      Pierre Thomas is always a threat to break off a long one, ranking third among NFL RBs in percentage of touches over 40 yards (1.2%).

    • He Can Catch, Too

      Pierre Thomas is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fourth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 543.

    Player Analysis

      • Eddie Lacy, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 7
      Does Eddie Lacy Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Lacy is projected to rank eighth in the league with 1,538 all-purpose yards.

      • Aaron Rodgers, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 14
      Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

      Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Aaron Rodgers had less value than any other pick of the round.

      • Antonio Brown, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 27
      Haters Gonna Hate

      The rest of BNFL League overlooked a gem, and team jdub made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Antonio Brown.

      • Julius Thomas, TE
      • Round 4, Pick 34
      A Big Target in the Red Zone

      With 8.1 projected TD catches, Julius Thomas ranks third in the NFL among TEs in that category.

      • Frank Gore, RB
      • Round 5, Pick 47
      Milk Was a Bad Choice

      And so was drafting Frank Gore, the weakest value of the round.

    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..."
