Jennifer's Team Draft Report Card


Despite a Set of Monster RBs, Jennifer's Team Has Roster Filled with Meh

Draft Summary

Hopefully just because this draft was average, Jennifer's Team won't purchase a muscle car or jacked-up truck to overcompensate. And hey, with the right breaks, maybe this team can reach the playoffs. They are projected to finish seventh in Cool Kids League with a record of 5-8-0 (1,530 points). They went all-in on running backs early, using their first three selections to grab Marshawn Lynch (2nd overall), DeMarco Murray (19th), and Justin Forsett (22nd). Jennifer's Team will rely heavily on this group, as they are the highest-scoring group of RBs in the league.

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


Week 9 might require some artful managing from Jennifer's Team. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have an easier-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 Jennifer's Team.

Draft Notes

  • QB Controversy?

    Jennifer's Team may have to rely on a Ouija board each week. Their top-drafted QB (Eli Manning) and second-drafted QB (Philip Rivers) have fairly similar seasonal point projections.

  • Aging Stars

    The top half of the roster (from a projected points perspective) is relatively old (ranked No. 1 in the league with an average of 9.9 years of NFL experience), whereas the bottom half is fairly young (ranked No. 9 with 4.3 years).

  • Fantasy Fútbol

    This is the American version, folks. Jennifer's Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.

  • A Dominating Duo

    Jennifer's Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (DeMarco Murray and Justin Forsett) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Super Sleepers

    At picks No. 122 and 139, Jennifer's Team snagged a couple of late-round fliers with upside in Devonta Freeman and Kyle Rudolph.

  • Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in Cool Kids League, Jennifer's Team may have found a gem in Jarvis Landry. Including his 1,218 projected return yards, he ranks first in the league with 2,170 all-purpose yards.

Player Analysis

    • Marshawn Lynch, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 313 touches, Marshawn Lynch is projected to rank fourth in the NFL in that category. How touching, Jennifer's Team.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 19
    Can DeMarco Duplicate?

    Across all Yahoo! leagues, only one RB (Le'Veon Bell) appeared on more first-place rosters than Murray last season.

    • Andre Johnson, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 39
    Defensive Coordinators Plan Specifically for Johnson

    Andre Johnson is expected to reach paydirt 8.4 times, placing him eighth in the NFL in projected receiving TDs.

    • M. Bryant, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 42
    That Just Happened

    Why can't I find Martavis Bryant on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round value."

    • Travis Kelce, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 59
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Jennifer's Team got a steal in snatching Travis Kelce in the sixth round (59th overall pick vs. ADP of 48.7).

Best Available

If Jennifer's Team wants to upgrade, WR and QB are areas they could go after first.

    • Rank 115, ADP 131

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..."
