Led by a Talented WR Corps, 1BAMFR Has a Squad Built to Reach the Playoffs

Draft Summary

Putting together a decent team, 1BAMFR didn't want to show up the Any Given sWATTday League and build some unbeatable juggernaut. They instead focused on building a team with a good chance to make the playoffs. Humbly, they are expected to finish in fifth-place in Any Given sWATTday League at 7-6-0 (1,382 points). They must have done their homework on the WR position during the offseason. Filling the roster with quality WRs, their six wideouts are projected to average 148 points this season, beating the league average of 136. They landed one of the best groups of WRs in the league, as they added Demaryius Thomas, Vincent Jackson, Mike Wallace, and Marques Colston.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

1BAMFR should use Week 4 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why don't the pants worn by Dr. Bruce Banner rip when he transforms into the Hulk? It's better to think about that than pay attention to fantasy football. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a weaker-than-average slate. Along with the fifth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for 1BAMFR.

Draft Notes

  • Carrying the Load

    1BAMFR has a trio of above-average positions leading the way (TE, WR, and K).

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    1BAMFR will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 4, as their only TE (Jordan Cameron) and only DEF (Arizona) will both be idle that week.

  • Golden Handcuff

    1BAMFR hedged their bets by scooping up James Starks in the 15th round to back up Eddie Lacy, his Packers teammate (a second-round selection).

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    1BAMFR has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Demaryius Thomas and Eddie Lacy) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Potent Potential

    Mike Evans and Kelvin Benjamin are a couple of late-round fliers with decent upside for 1BAMFR.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, 1BAMFR chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

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..."
