    With a Projected Finish of Seventh, Jason's Team Is Good Enough to Barely Miss Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    While Jason's Team is no world-beater, this is a team that could potentially reach the playoffs if some things go their way. Picking 10th overall, Jason's Team is projected to land in seventh place in Yahoo Public 639029 League with a record of 5-9-0 (1,312 points). With five WRs on the roster, Jason's Team guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 143, their WRs projected average of 145 points this season is not much different than the rest of the wideout groups in the league. They have the worst group of RBs in the league, as they added Montee Ball, C.J. Spiller, and Reggie Bush.

    Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    Jason's Team should just disappear for a while during Week 4. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Jason's Team.

    Draft Notes

    • Show Some ID

      Jason's Team isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 4.1 years of NFL experience.

    • Close to the Vest

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

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

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

    • You Snooze, You Lose

      While the rest of the league slept on Kelvin Benjamin, Jason's Team pounced on him at pick No. 130.

    • A Versatile Combination

      Reggie Bush can hurt opponents with his hands as well as his feet. He ranks fourth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 513.

    Player Analysis

      • Montee Ball, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 10
      Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

      Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Montee Ball had less value than any other pick of the round.

      • A.J. Green, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 11
      190 Excuses to Cheer for A.J. Green

      Green ranks sixth in the Yahoo Public 639029 League among wideouts with 190 projected fantasy points.

      • Keenan Allen, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 31
      Defensive Coordinators Plan Specifically for Allen

      Keenan Allen is expected to reach paydirt 8.1 times, placing him 10th in the NFL in projected receiving TDs.

      • Jordan Cameron, TE
      • Round 5, Pick 50
      The Tightest of Ends

      Jordan Cameron is projected to rank among the top-5 for TEs in both receiving TDs (fourth with 7.6) and receiving yards (fifth with 813).

      • Cam Newton, QB
      • Round 6, Pick 51
      Basic Math is Optional

      Michael Vick once claimed "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 592 projected rushing yards, Cam Newton can channel his inner Vick to help Jason's Team this year.

    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..."
