    Robin Horn's Team Draft Report Card

    B-
    Grade

    With a Projected Finish of Third, Robin Horn's Team Will Be a Tough Out

    Draft Summary

    Picking late (eighth overall), Robin Horn's Team did what they could with what they were given. While this team isn't a juggernaut by any means, it's a team capable of reaching the playoffs if the chips fall their way. They are expected to finish third in Yahoo Public 761889 with a record of 9-5-0 (1,316 points). With five WRs on the roster, Robin Horn's Team has a quality group of receivers; their WRs are projected to average 136 points this season, near the league average of 142. They landed the best TE combo in the league, as they have Jimmy Graham and Tyler Eifert.

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

    Schedule

    Week 10 may cause some frustration for Robin Horn's Team, as their top two projected scorers (Andrew Luck and Philip Rivers) will be on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-difficult-than-average schedule. Corresponding with the third-most grueling overall schedule, Robin Horn's Team also has the toughest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

      Robin Horn's Team grabbed a couple of QBs (Andrew Luck and Philip Rivers) that'll both be on bye in Week 10, and will be looking for a signal-caller. You can call Brett, but texting him isn't exactly recommended.

    • Great Idea, Poor Execution

      Robin Horn's Team might need to hit the waiver wire in Week 10, as their No. 1- (Keenan Allen), No. 2- (DeSean Jackson) and No. 5-ranked (DeAndre Hopkins) WRs will all be resting that week.

    • Stockpiling Talent at TE

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

    • I Keep Getting Older

      And they stay the same age. Robin Horn's Team 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.

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

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

    • Team of Champions

      Robin Horn'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 (Jimmy Graham, Zac Stacy, and DeSean Jackson).

    Player Analysis

      • Jimmy Graham, TE
      • Round 1, Pick 8
      Is He a Tight End or a Wide Receiver?

      Jimmy Graham was owned on more championship teams across Yahoo! than any other TE in 2013.

      • Montee Ball, RB
      • Round 2, Pick 13
      An All-Purpose Stat-Stuffer

      Montee Ball is projected to finish 10th in the league with 1,454 total yards (1,030 rushing, 424 receiving).

      • Zac Stacy, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 28
      Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

      Get on up, it's Zac Stacy time! He's predicted to run cool this season with 189 projected points.

      • Keenan Allen, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 33
      Defensive Coordinators Plan Specifically for Allen

      Keenan Allen is expected to reach paydirt 8.1 times, placing him 10th in the NFL in projected receiving TDs.

      • DeSean Jackson, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 53
      Was the 53rd Pick the Right Time for DeSean Jackson?

      Robin Horn's Team apparently believes it is. The Redskins' wide receiver is only projected to get 142 points this year, after putting up 187 last year.

    Best Available

    WR, the only subpar position on Robin Horn's Team, is one area that could potentially be upgraded.

    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..."
