For some the ninth overall pick is a challenge, for others its a blessing, but for Tyler's Tip-Top Team it looks to be a curse and an early indicator of the season ahead. Most teams in the league will pick up an easy win against Tyler's Tip-Top Team, resulting in their projected 3-11-0 (1,421) record and 10th-place finish in Yahoo Public 743787 League. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Drew Brees (29th overall), RBs DeMarco Murray (9th) and Matt Forte (12th), and WRs Jordan Matthews (32nd) and Brandon Marshall (49th). They landed the bottom group of WRs in the league, as they have Marshall, Golden Tate, Matthews, and Roddy White for their rotation.
Tyler's Tip-Top Team should use Week 7 to consider life's great mysteries, like why abbreviation is such a long word. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have the hardest schedule. Corresponding with the most demanding overall schedule, Tyler's Tip-Top Team also has the most difficult last four games of the season.
Hoping It's Not a Fad
The fantasy hopes of Tyler's Tip-Top Team rest heavily on the fortunes of Chip Kelly's offensive schemes, as they have four Eagles on their roster.

Putting Their Best Foot Forward
Tyler's Tip-Top Team knows this isn't European football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.
A Pair of Proven Winners
Tyler's Tip-Top Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (DeMarco Murray and Matt Forte) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
Can DeMarco Duplicate?
- DeMarco Murray, RB
- Round 1, Pick 9
Across all Yahoo! leagues, only one RB (Le'Veon Bell) appeared on more first-place rosters than Murray last season.
- Matt Forte, RB
- Round 2, Pick 12
Tyler's Tip-Top Team stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, nabbing DeMarco Murray and Matt Forte right off the bat.
Take One Play Off and He Burns You
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 3, Pick 29
Tyler's Tip-Top Team drafted the most explosive QB in the league in Drew Brees. He's projected to lead NFL QBs in plays over 40 yards with 13.2 and TDs over 40 yards with 5.1.
Milk Was a Bad Choice
- B. Marshall, WR
- Round 5, Pick 49
And so was drafting Brandon Marshall, the weakest value of the round.
Was Golden Tate Worth it at Pick No. 52?
- Golden Tate, WR
- Round 6, Pick 52
Tyler's Tip-Top Team sure hopes so. The Lions' WR is projected to earn 129 points this year, after putting up 160 last season.
There are three positions that Tyler's Tip-Top Team could look to upgrade, including K, which looks like their biggest area of need.

- Rank 226, ADP 147

- Rank 228, ADP 147
- Josh Brown
- Rank 241, ADP 136
- Mike Nugent
- Rank 243, ADP 130

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.
