Nowhere to Hyde Draft Report Card


Slated for a Sixth-Place Finish, Andrew's Team Has an Average Roster

Draft Summary

Look, Andrew's Team, not everyone achieves the "above" in "above average," it has to be earned. Just be happy being an average GM, and maybe with a little hard work and a better draft next season, your team will reach that milestone. Andrew's Team didn't kill their playoff aspirations with this draft, but they'll have to do some extra work to get there. For now, they're projected to finish in sixth-place in Cool Kids League at 8-5-0 (1,508 points). They have six decent WRs on the roster that are projected to average 140 points this season, near the league average of 140. They landed a legit group of RBs, as they have Jeremy Hill, Carlos Hyde, T.J. Yeldon, and Tevin Coleman on their team.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Andrew's Team should just disappear for a while during Week 10. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-difficult-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 Andrew's Team.

Draft Notes

  • Earning Your Paycheck

    Andrew's Team will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Jeremy Maclin), fourth- (Torrey Smith), and fifth-ranked (Charles Johnson) wideouts.

  • Carrying the Load

    Andrew's Team has four above-average positions with TE and RB projected to lead the way.

  • A Dominating Duo

    Andrew's Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Demaryius Thomas and Jeremy Maclin) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

Player Analysis

    • Jeremy Hill, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 9
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 305 touches, Jeremy Hill is projected to rank seventh in the NFL in that category. How touching, Andrew's Team.

    • D. Thomas, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 12
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Cool Kids League overlooked a gem, and Andrew's Team made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Demaryius Thomas.

    • Mike Evans, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 29
    165 More Reasons to Appreciate Mike Evans

    Evans ranks 10th in the Cool Kids League among WRs with 165 projected fantasy points.

    • Jimmy Graham, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 32
    Will His Production Drop-Off?

    Andrew's Team sure hopes not. Though he might not put up Saints-esque numbers, Graham is almost certain to be one of Russell Wilson's favorite targets moving forward.

    • Carlos Hyde, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 49
    Finding Paydirt

    With 8.4 rushing TDs, Carlos Hyde is projected to finish seventh in the NFL in that category.

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..."
