With the right set of circumstances, Kara Te Chop could potentially make the playoffs. A tough draft spot led to a fairly tough draft. Picking seventh overall, they're projected to land in seventh place in Dolla Dolla Bills Y'all League with a record of 5-8-1 (1,446 points). With their first five picks, Kara Te Chop aimed for balance, selecting QB Peyton Manning (7th overall), RBs Montee Ball (14th) and Joique Bell (27th), and WRs Antonio Brown (34th) and Percy Harvin (47th). They put together the most prolific QB pair in the league, as they have Manning and Joe Flacco on the roster.
Kara Te Chop should use Week 4 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why do we park in a driveway but drive on a parkway? It will be better to think about that than to check fantasy football. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least difficult slates. Corresponding with the second-easiest overall schedule, Kara Te Chop also has the league's easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.
QB or Bust
QB is the only above-average position group for Kara Te Chop.
Root, Root, Root for the Home Team
Kara Te Chop is a believer in the hopes of the Detroit Lions this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.
A Dominating Duo
Kara Te Chop has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Peyton Manning and Antonio Brown) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
Jace Amaro and Christine Michael are a couple of late-round fliers with upside for Kara Te Chop.
A Stretch of the Imagination
Grabbing Jace Amaro at pick 134 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Amaro is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
Kara Te Chop scored the best value pick of the final round, drafting Joe Flacco at pick number 154.
A Mile-High Marvel
- Peyton Manning, QB
- Round 1, Pick 7
By fantasy standards, Peyton Manning's second season in Denver was his strongest as an NFL QB. He was owned on more championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues than any other quarterback.
Does Montee Ball Enjoy Fajitas?
- Montee Ball, RB
- Round 2, Pick 14
Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Ball is projected to rank 10th in the league with 1,493 total yards.
Taking a Chance
- Joique Bell, RB
- Round 3, Pick 27
With their third-round pick, Kara Te Chop threw caution to the wind. They took Joique Bell at pick number 27 despite an ADP of 89.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 4, Pick 34
Antonio Brown is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 95 projected catches rank fourth in the league.
That Just Happened
- Percy Harvin, WR
- Round 5, Pick 47
Why can't I find Percy Harvin on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round value."
While Kara Te Chop is expected to be weak across five positions, TE is definitely their weakest unit and an area of need.
- Delanie Walker
- Rank 148, ADP 134
- Heath Miller
- Rank 160, ADP 134
- Garrett Graham
- Rank 163, ADP 137
- Tim Wright
- Rank 174, ADP 139

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.
