    Destruction Inc. Draft Report Card


    With a Projected Finish of First, Destruction Inc. Is Built to Take Home The Crown

    Draft Summary

    Corresponding with a solid draft slot (fourth overall), Destruction Inc. had a stellar showing. With a mark of 11-3-0 (1,351 points), they're projected to finish first in Yahoo Public 761889 League. They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Peyton Manning (4th overall), RB DeMarco Murray (17th), WR Wes Welker (37th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (44th) within the first five rounds. They built the bottom TE combo in the league, as they have Gronkowski and Jermichael Finley on their team.

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


    Week 4 might require some additional effort if they hope to win, as their top two projected scorers (Peyton Manning and Johnny Manziel) will be off with byes. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the softest schedules. Corresponding with the third-easiest overall schedule, Destruction Inc. also has the second-softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

      It's likely that in Week 4, Destruction Inc. will either be scraping the wire or begging for a trade (Peyton Manning and Johnny Manziel will both be on bye). You can give Favre a call, but texting him isn't recommended.

    • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

      At three different positions, Destruction Inc. picked up projected top-two players (Peyton Manning, Rob Gronkowski, and Carolina).

    • Losing Focus

      Destruction Inc. must have had to leave their draft party early. After tallying the most projected points in the league over the draft's first half, they managed the fewest during the second half.

    • You Almost Got It Right

      The top half of the Destruction Inc. roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1). The bottom of the roster, unfortunately, is rated as the league's weakest.

    • Beginning with a Bang

      Destruction Inc. got off to a sizzling start, amassing the most projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.

    • Going Out with a Whimper

      Destruction Inc. didn't end the night the way they might have liked, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

    Player Analysis

      • Peyton Manning, QB
      • Round 1, Pick 4
      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.

      • DeMarco Murray, RB
      • Round 2, Pick 17
      Does DeMarco Murray Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

      Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. Murray is ranked 10th in the league with 1,480 all-purpose yards.

      • Le'Veon Bell, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 24
      Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

      Get on up, it's Le'Veon Bell time! He should run cool this season with 196 projected points.

      • Rob Gronkowski, TE
      • Round 5, Pick 44
      Better Lucky Than Good?

      The rest of Yahoo Public 761889 League overlooked a gem, and Destruction Inc. made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Rob Gronkowski.

      • T.Y. Hilton, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 57
      It Was a Learning Experience

      Hey, remember that time Destruction Inc. took T.Y. Hilton WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Hilton 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..."
