What is that horrible smell? It smells like burnt hair. Oh, never mind, it's just the Hook'em horns roster. It'll take more than a plug-in to fix this team, which is projected to finish eighth in FG Football League with a record of 5-9-0 (1,893 points). With their first five picks, Hook'em horns focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Tom Brady (40th overall), RBs Le'Veon Bell (1st) and Andre Ellington (41st), and WRs A.J. Green (20th) and Alshon Jeffery (21st). They landed one of the bottom groups of RBs in the league, as they added Bell, Ellington, Giovani Bernard, and Danny Woodhead.
Hook'em horns might as well plan a vacation for Week 10. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a softer-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 Hook'em horns.
Hook'em horns is loaded at QB and WR. Could they be willing to leverage some of that talent and listen to trade offers from other teams in FG Football League?
You Snooze, You Lose
While the rest of the league slept on Danny Woodhead, Hook'em horns pounced on him at pick No. 160.
Throwing Caution to the Wind
They grabbed Vernon Davis with the 81st pick, even though his ADP is only 127.8 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Basic Math is Optional
Michael Vick once claimed "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 635 projected rushing yards, Colin Kaepernick can channel his inner Vick to help Hook'em horns this year.
Take One Play Off and He Burns You
Danny Woodhead is always a threat to break off a long one, ranking fourth among NFL RBs in percentage of touches over 40 yards (1.2%).
A Stretch of the Imagination
Grabbing Tim Tebow at pick 161 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Tebow is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
Bell is Hungry
- Le'Veon Bell, RB
- Round 1, Pick 1
And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank fifth in the NFL with 312 touches.
Maybe Green Will Surprise
- A.J. Green, WR
- Round 2, Pick 20
Despite being an above-average player at his position, A.J. Green was the weakest value pick of the round.
179 Reasons for Hook'em horns to Appreciate Alshon Jeffery
- Alshon Jeffery, WR
- Round 3, Pick 21
Jeffery ranks eighth in the FG Football League among WRs with 179 projected fantasy points.
A Super Duper Signal-Caller
- Tom Brady, QB
- Round 4, Pick 40
Tom Brady is projected to rack up 393 points this year, enough to rank fifth among all QBs.
A Multifaceted Machine
- A. Ellington, RB
- Round 5, Pick 41
Ellington is a dual-threat back for Hook'em horns, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fifth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 471.
While Hook'em horns is expected to be weak across three positions, DEF is definitely their weakest unit and an area of need.
- Kansas City Defense
- Rank 209, ADP 126
- San Francisco Defense

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.
