    Cam Draft Report Card

    B-
    Grade

    Led by a Stellar WR Corps, Cam Has a Legit Squad

    Draft Summary

    Putting together a decent team, Cam didn't want to show up the BNFL League and build some unbeatable juggernaut. They instead focused on building a team with a good chance to make the playoffs. Humbly, they are expected to finish in third-place in BNFL League at 8-6-0 (1,925 points). With six WRs on the roster, Cam loaded up on solid pass catchers; their WRs are projected to average 247 points this season, close to the league average of 237. They have one of the top groups of WRs in the league, as they added Dez Bryant, Emmanuel Sanders, DeSean Jackson, and Torrey Smith.

    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, Cam 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 entire season, they have a harder-than-average schedule. In addition to having the third-most grueling overall schedule, Cam also has the most difficult last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Earning Your Paycheck

      Cam will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (DeSean Jackson), fourth- (Torrey Smith), and fifth-ranked (Michael Crabtree) wideouts.

    • Assessing the Assets

      TE is the strongest position for Cam, though WR and K are also better than the league's average.

    • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

      At three different positions, Cam picked up projected top-two players (Dez Bryant, Jimmy Graham, and Dan Bailey).

    • Close to the Vest

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

    • Better Late Than Never

      Cam finished on a high note, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

    • A Pair of Proven Winners

      Cam has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jimmy Graham and DeSean Jackson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    Player Analysis

      • Jimmy Graham, TE
      • Round 1, Pick 8
      A Return to Huge Numbers

      Sean Payton's return to the Saints' sideline seemed to work out for Jimmy Graham, who was owned on more championship rosters across Yahoo! than any other TE.

      • Dez Bryant, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 13
      Haters Gonna Hate

      The rest of BNFL League overlooked a gem, and Cam made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Dez Bryant.

      • Le'Veon Bell, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 28
      If it Ain't Broke

      Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Cam didn't grab their first RB (Le'Veon Bell) until the third round.

      • M. Crabtree, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 53
      Was the 53rd Pick the Right Time for Michael Crabtree?

      Cam apparently believes it is. The 49ers' wide receiver is projected to put up 223 points this year, after only netting 60 last year.

      • Tom Brady, QB
      • Round 7, Pick 68
      Do You Know if Tom Brady is Religious?

      With 397 projected points, Cam is hoping Brady will be the answer to their prayers.

    Best Available

    Cam has three positions where an upgrade could be beneficial, with DEF being the most immediate need.

      • Indianapolis Defanse
      • Rank 225, ADP 144
      • Baltimore Defanse
      • Rank 236, ADP 142

    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..."
