    Jack's Team Draft Report Card


    In Spite of Some Early-Round Reaches, Jack's Team Looks Like a Playoff Squad

    Draft Summary

    Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. Jack's Team put together a quality team and is projected to finish in third-place in Dangi 15 League at 9-5-0 (1,465 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Peyton Manning (7th overall), RB Jamaal Charles (6th), WR Antonio Brown (18th), and TE Jason Witten (30th) within the first five rounds. They have the highest-scoring QB tandem in the league, as they added Manning and Robert Griffin III to their squad.

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


    Jack's Team should drop off the grid during 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 one of the weakest schedules. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, Jack's Team also has the league's second-easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Stockpiling Talent at QB

      Jack's Team should be in good shape with five position groups projected to be better-than-average. QB is definitely the strongest among them.

    • Fantasy FĂștbol

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

    • Team of Champions

      Jack'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 (Jamaal Charles, Peyton Manning, and Antonio Brown).

    • Big D

      Jack's Team elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

    • Is His Jersey Made of Honey?

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

    • Not Afraid to Scramble

      With 584 projected rushing yards (ranking third among QBs), Robert Griffin III has multiple ways to bring in points.

    Player Analysis

      • Jamaal Charles, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 6
      Choosy Moms Choose Jamaal

      Owners who took a chance on Jamaal Charles were rewarded nicely last year, as he was owned on more playoff rosters across Yahoo! than any other RB.

      • Peyton Manning, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 7
      Fantasy is Better Than Reality

      Even though he fell short in Super Bowl 48, Peyton Manning was more likely to be owned on a 2013 Yahoo! championship roster than any other QB.

      • Antonio Brown, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 18
      The Power of Persuasion

      Now would be a reasonable time for Jack's Team to encourage the Dangi 15 League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Antonio Brown and his 95 projected catches (ranked fourth in the NFL).

      • Victor Cruz, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 19
      On a Scale of 1 to America

      How free will Victor Cruz get in the secondary this year? He's projected to reel in 1,189 receiving yards.

      • Jason Witten, TE
      • Round 5, Pick 30
      A Tight End with Some Wheels

      With a projection of 871 yards through the air, Jason Witten ranks third in the NFL among TEs in receiving yards.

    Best Available

    Jack's Team has one weak area, TE, that they may want to improve.

    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..."
