    Despite a Powerful Set of RBs, PAUL's Team Needs Work

    Draft Summary

    With the right set of circumstances, PAUL's Team could potentially make the playoffs. A tough draft spot led to a fairly tough draft. Picking seventh overall, they're projected to land in seventh place in Yahoo Public 743787 League with a record of 6-8-0 (1,338 points). They wanted to shore up any RB concerns early, using three of their first five draft picks to draft RBs Eddie Lacy (first round), Marshawn Lynch (second round), and Zac Stacy (fourth round). PAUL's Team will rely heavily on this group, as they are the highest-scoring group of RBs in the league.

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


    PAUL's Team should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why is there only one word for thesaurus? That's still better time spent than checking fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-challenging-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for PAUL's Team.

    Draft Notes

    • My One and Only

      Ignoring roster depth, PAUL's Team chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).

    • Team of Champions

      PAUL's Team is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Eddie Lacy, Jordy Nelson, and Zac Stacy).

    • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

      PAUL's Team grabbed a sleeper in Kenny Britt with pick No. 134.

    • Mr. Mendoza

      Kenny Britt is owned in only 3% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) PAUL's Team has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

    Player Analysis

      • Eddie Lacy, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 7
      Does Eddie Lacy Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Lacy is projected to rank eighth in the league with 1,538 all-purpose yards.

      • Marshawn Lynch, RB
      • Round 2, Pick 14
      Old Fashioned

      PAUL's Team stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Eddie Lacy and Marshawn Lynch before targeting other positions.

      • Jordy Nelson, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 27
      168 Excuses to Cheer for Jordy Nelson

      Because the projections for Zac Stacy are sweet. He's projected to be the 10th-best RB in the league this season.

      • Cam Newton, QB
      • Round 5, Pick 47
      It Was a Learning Experience

      Hey, remember that time PAUL's Team took Cam Newton WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Newton was the weakest value pick of the round.

    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..."
