After Some Early Gambles, Go Texans 316 Isn't Anything to Get Excited About

Draft Summary

Look Go Texans 316, 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. Go Texans 316 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 seventh-place in Any Given sWATTday League at 5-8-0 (1,326 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Tom Brady (46th overall), RB Alfred Morris (26th), WR A.J. Green (15th), and TE Jimmy Graham (6th) within the first five rounds. They landed one of the bottom combos of WRs in the league, as they added Green and Andre Johnson.

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

Schedule

Go Texans 316 can write off Week 10 as a scheduling injustice and use that time to consider other injustices: for example, why doesn't Chewbacca get a medal during the ceremony at the end of Star Wars? Wookie bias? They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a harder-than-average schedule. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Go Texans 316.

Draft Notes

  • Stockpiling Talent at TE

    Go Texans 316 should be in good shape with four position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE is definitely the strongest among them.

  • Root, Root, Root for the Home Team

    Go Texans 316 is a believer in the hopes of the New England Patriots this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, Go Texans 316 chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).

  • Checked Out Early

    Go Texans 316 didn't exactly wrap up the draft on a high note, ending up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • Mr. Mendoza

    Stevie Johnson is owned in only 2% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Go Texans 316 has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

  • Mr. Irrelevant

    In terms of projected points, the choice of Stevie Johnson with the 146th pick gave Go Texans 316 the worst pick of the final round. This Mr. Irrelevant gets no parade, unfortunately.

Player Analysis

    • Jimmy Graham, TE
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    Is He a Tight End or a Wide Receiver?

    Jimmy Graham was owned on more championship teams across Yahoo! than any other TE in 2013.

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    182 Excuses to Cheer for A.J. Green

    Green ranks sixth in the Any Given sWATTday League among wideouts with 182 projected fantasy points.

    • Alfred Morris, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 26
    If it Ain't Broke

    Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Go Texans 316 didn't grab their first RB (Alfred Morris) until the third round.

    • Tom Brady, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 46
    Rethinking That One?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, Tom Brady was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • Percy Harvin, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 55
    Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in Any Given sWATTday League, Go Texans 316 may have found a gem in Percy Harvin. Including his 789 projected return yards, he ranks second in the league with 1,734 all-purpose yards.

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..."
