Despite an Exciting Set of WRs, wesley's Team Has an Average Roster

Draft Summary

If there was a Hall of Average, wesley's Team would have a plaque. Unfortunately, there isn't, so instead they'll just have to settle for losing more often than not. This team is projected to finish in sixth-place in Yahoo Public 631214 League at 7-7-0 (1,539 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on DeAndre Hopkins (first round), Brandon Marshall (second round), and Amari Cooper (fourth round). This group will have to produce in order for wesley's Team to have a good season, as they are one of the most prolific groups of WRs in the league.

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

Schedule

wesley's Team should use Week 9 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like what was the greatest thing before sliced bread? No, seriously, think about it. It's better than thinking about fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a softer-than-average schedule. In addition to having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, wesley's Team has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • QB Controversy?

    The coach of wesley's Team might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted QB (Philip Rivers) and second-drafted QB (Kirk Cousins) have very similar seasonal point projections.

  • Close to the Vest

    wesley's Team was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • Good to Have Balance, Right?

    While the bottom half of the wesley's Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 2), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).

  • Starting Slowly

    wesley's Team got off to a sluggish start, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

    wesley's Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • A Dominating Pair

    wesley's Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (DeAndre Hopkins and Brandon Marshall) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

Player Analysis

    • D. Hopkins, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    Diagnosis: more DeAndre!

    Hopkins' breakout was just what the doctor ordered for fantasy owners last year. Only Devonta Freeman and Tom Brady appeared more often on championship rosters than Houston's star WR.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    182 Excuses to Cheer for Brandon Marshall

    Marshall ranks seventh in the Yahoo Public 631214 League among wideouts with 182 projected fantasy points.

    • C.J. Anderson, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 27
    Wait For It

    wesley's Team held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to snag their "lead back" (C.J. Anderson).

    • Travis Kelce, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 54
    Was Travis Kelce Worth it at Pick No. 54?

    wesley's Team sure hopes so. The Chiefs' tight end is projected to have 117 points this year, just a bit lower than his total from last year.

    • Philip Rivers, QB
    • Round 7, Pick 67
    Like Face Wash for Teenagers

    wesley's Team was proactive about grabbing a QB. They reached for Philip Rivers at pick number 67 even though his ADP is only 95.6 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Best Available

With three subpar positions on wesley's Team, TE and RB are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

    • Eric Ebron
    • Rank 136, ADP 136
    • Vance McDonald
    • Rank 148, ADP 138
    • Danny Woodhead
    • Rank 90, ADP 118
    • Ameer Abdullah
    • Rank 94, ADP 110

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..."
