While the BleedsBroncoBlue roster doesn't exactly scream playoffs, it's a roster that can be improved with some wheeling and dealing. As of now, they are projected to finish seventh in BNFL League with a record of 7-7-0 (1,941 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Peyton Manning (1st overall), RB Doug Martin (21st), WR Jordy Nelson (20th), and TE Vernon Davis (41st) within the first five rounds. They ended up with the most prolific QB combo in the league, as they have Manning and Andrew Luck on the roster.
While Week 10 has the most players on bye for BleedsBroncoBlue (five), Week 4 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the easiest slates. Corresponding with the second-easiest overall schedule, BleedsBroncoBlue also has the easiest first four games of the season.
Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for BleedsBroncoBlue, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Golden Tate) and fourth-ranked (Tavon Austin) wideouts.
QB or Bust
QB is the only stronger-than-average position group for BleedsBroncoBlue.
The top half of the BleedsBroncoBlue roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).
Beginning with a Bang
BleedsBroncoBlue got off to a sizzling start, amassing the most projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.
A Dominating Duo
BleedsBroncoBlue has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Peyton Manning and Jordy Nelson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
BleedsBroncoBlue nabbed a sleeper in Dennis Pitta with pick No. 121.
Fantasy is Better Than Reality
- Peyton Manning, QB
- Round 1, Pick 1
Even though he fell short in Super Bowl 48, Peyton Manning was more likely to be owned on a 2013 Yahoo! championship roster than any other QB.
The Power of Persuasion
- Jordy Nelson, WR
- Round 2, Pick 20
Now would be a reasonable time for BleedsBroncoBlue to encourage the BNFL League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Jordy Nelson and his 87 projected catches (ranked ninth in the NFL).
If it Ain't Broke
- Doug Martin, RB
- Round 3, Pick 21
Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, BleedsBroncoBlue didn't grab their first RB (Doug Martin) until the third round.
Doling Out Nightmares
- L. Fitzgerald, WR
- Round 4, Pick 40
Larry Fitzgerald will look to haunt the dreams of opposing corners, as he's projected to finish 10th in the NFL with 8.1 receiving TDs.
A Big Target in the Red Zone
- Vernon Davis, TE
- Round 5, Pick 41
With 6.5 projected TD catches, Vernon Davis ranks fourth in the NFL among TEs in that category.
With five subpar positions on BleedsBroncoBlue, WR and RB are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.
- Justin Hunter
- Rank 108, ADP 123
- Markus Wheaton
- Rank 115, ADP 128
- Jeremy Hill
- Rank 95, ADP 123
- Bernard Pierce
- Rank 98, ADP 121

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.
