    Ask Jeeves Draft Report Card


    Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, Ask Jeeves Crushed This Draft

    Draft Summary

    Watch out. Somebody let Ask Jeeves loose in the draft room. When the smoke cleared, all that was left was an elite squad capable of destroying opponents at will. They are projected to finish second in Football Grandmas League with a record of 11-2-0 (1,489 points). They obviously understand how important the running back position is in fantasy football. They used three of their first five picks on RBs Jamaal Charles (first round), Andre Ellington (second round), and Toby Gerhart (fourth round). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, Ask Jeeves will benefit. They are the most prolific group of RBs in the league.

    With a draft like that, you might as well make it official. Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.


    Week 9 might require some artful managing from Ask Jeeves. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Ask Jeeves.

    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.
