After Some Early Gambles, robs bombers's Team Isn't Exactly What You'd Call "Good"

Draft Summary

For some the 10th overall pick is a challenge, for others its a blessing, but for robs bombers's 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 robs bombers's Team, resulting in their projected 5-9-0 (1,652) record and eighth-place finish in sucker punch League. They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Robert Griffin III (50th overall), RB Montee Ball (11th), WR Calvin Johnson (10th), and TE Julius Thomas (31st) within the first five rounds. They built one of the worst groups of RBs in the league, as they have Ball, Alfred Morris, Mark Ingram, and Danny Woodhead on their team.

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

Schedule

robs bombers's Team should drop off the grid during Week 10. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the toughest slate. Along with having the most grueling overall schedule, robs bombers's Team has the league's second-easiest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

    robs bombers's Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    robs bombers's Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    robs bombers's Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Calvin Johnson and Julius Thomas) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    robs bombers's Team nabbed a sleeper in Mark Ingram with pick No. 190.

  • Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, robs bombers's Team got a steal in the 12th round, when they selected Stephen Gostkowski (111th overall pick vs. ADP of 73.2).

  • A Stretch of the Imagination

    Grabbing Roy Helu Jr. at pick 171 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Helu Jr. is owned on just a handful of teams across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Calvin Johnson, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    Meeting His Expectations

    Often the only WR taken in the first round in 2013, Megatron lived up to the billing and was owned on more playoff teams across Yahoo! than any other wideout.

    • Montee Ball, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 11
    Is His Jersey Made of Honey?

    Because the projections for Montee Ball are sweet. He's projected to be the ninth-best RB in the league this season.

    • Alfred Morris, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 30
    Rethinking That One?

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

    • Julius Thomas, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 31
    Haters Gonna Hate

    The rest of sucker punch League overlooked a gem, and robs bombers's Team made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Julius Thomas.

    • R. Griffin III, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 50
    Basic Math is Optional

    Michael Vick once claimed "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 596 projected rushing yards, Robert Griffin III can channel his inner Vick to help robs bombers's Team this year.

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.
