    Caution Draft Report Card

    Grade

    Led by a Talented WR Corps, Caution Has the Talent to Dominate

    Draft Summary

    Caution was able to invest the fifth pick well and looks positioned for some nice returns over the season. The proceeds from this draft include an overall projected finish of first in sucker punch League, as well an estimated 1,777 points and a record of 12-2-0. They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Dez Bryant (second round), Julio Jones (third round), and Randall Cobb (fourth round). A lot will be expected of this group, as they are the best group of WRs in the league.

    With a draft like that, you might as well make it official. Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    While Week 4 has the most players on bye for Caution (five), Week 11 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Looking at the entire season, they have a weaker-than-average slate. In addition to having the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Caution has the easiest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • The Sky's the Limit

      With eight players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Caution hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

    • I Keep Getting Older

      And they stay the same age. Caution isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 4.2 years of NFL experience.

    • Utter Ridiculousness

      In Week 10, both Houston and Indianapolis will be on bye. Drafting two defenses with the same bye week is a unique strategy, Caution.

    • Fantasy FĂștbol

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

    • Big D

      Caution elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

    • Bargain Shopper

      With five steals in the first 13 rounds (including Houston, Justin Tucker, and Michael Crabtree), Caution made some shrewd moves.

    Player Analysis

      • A. Peterson, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 5
      Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

      Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. Peterson is ranked second in the league with 1,857 all-purpose yards.

      • Dez Bryant, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 16
      Haters Gonna Hate

      The rest of sucker punch League overlooked a gem, and Caution made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Dez Bryant.

      • Julio Jones, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 25
      Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law

      Julio Jones is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 105 projected catches rank third in the league.

      • A. Ellington, RB
      • Round 5, Pick 45
      An All-Purpose Stat-Stuffer

      Andre Ellington is projected to finish seventh in the league with 1,525 total yards (1,026 rushing, 499 receiving).

      • M. Crabtree, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 56
      Was Michael Crabtree Worth it at Pick No. 56?

      Caution sure hopes so. The 49ers' WR is projected to put up 128 points this year, after only netting 34 last season.

    Best Available

    With three subpar positions on Caution, DEF and TE are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.

      • Tennessee Defanse
      • Rank 250, ADP 122
      • Dallas Defanse
      • Rank 277, ADP 120
      • Garrett Graham
      • Rank 149, ADP 125

    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..."
