With a Projected Finish of 10th, Rosemary Victorious Should Have Hired an Expert

Draft Summary

You know what, Rosemary Victorious, maybe you should just hold off on pursuing your dreams for a while. Maybe just ask them where they're going and hook up with 'em later, when you have a team capable of winning. Rosemary Victorious is projected to finish 10th in Nitty Gritty Dirt League with a record of 2-12-0 (1,411 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs DeAndre Hopkins (first round), A.J. Green (second round), and T.Y. Hilton (fourth round). They also have one of the bottom groups of RBs in the league, as they added Eddie Lacy, Jeremy Hill, and Ameer Abdullah to the team.

Yikes. At least it can't get any worse. In fact, if you nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame, you'll be an official nominee. Feel better?


Week 9 might require some waiver-wire magic from Rosemary Victorious. 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 slate. In addition to having the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Rosemary Victorious also has the easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Decent Idea, Mediocre Execution

    Rosemary Victorious might need to hit the waiver wire in Week 9, as their No. 1- (DeAndre Hopkins), No. 2- (A.J. Green) and No. 5-ranked (DeSean Jackson) WRs will all be resting that week.

  • A Pair of Strengths

    Rosemary Victorious has two positional units projected to be better than the league average, WR and DEF.

  • Up and Comers

    Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and Rosemary Victorious may have done just that, with four players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.

  • Big D

    Rosemary Victorious elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in Nitty Gritty Dirt League, Rosemary Victorious may have found a gem in Ameer Abdullah. Including his 598 projected return yards, he ranks seventh in the league with 1,543 all-purpose yards.

Player Analysis

    • D. Hopkins, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 8
    Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

    Guide to making the playoffs and winning the championship in your league: Step 1, create team. Step 2, draft DeAndre Hopkins. He was the fifth-most-owned player by playoff teams, as well as the third-most-owned player by championship teams.

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    186 Excuses to Cheer for A.J. Green

    Green ranks sixth in the Nitty Gritty Dirt League among wideouts with 186 projected fantasy points.

    • Eddie Lacy, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 28
    How Rebellious of You

    Rosemary Victorious said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Eddie Lacy).

    • B. Roethlisberger, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 48
    Like a Prancing Unicorn

    Ben Roethlisberger is a fantasy dream. He's predicted to finish third in the NFL in passing TDs and second in passing yards. If he lives up to those numbers, it should mean good things for Rosemary Victorious.

    • Jeremy Hill, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 53
    Was Jeremy Hill the Best Choice at Pick No. 53?

    Rosemary Victorious apparently thinks so. The Bengals' RB is projected to earn 136 points this year, after putting up 154 last season.

Best Available

While Rosemary Victorious is projected to have four subpar positions, K is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.

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..."
