It was almost too hard to watch as The Chaotic One took the third pick and drove any playoff hopes they had right off a cliff. They are projected to finish 4-10-0 (1,273), bad enough for a ninth-place finish in Yahoo Public 761889 League. They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Drew Brees (18th overall), RB Adrian Peterson (3rd), WR Victor Cruz (38th), and TE Julius Thomas (23rd) within the first five rounds. They put together the top QB duo in the league, as they have Brees and Andy Dalton on the roster.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, The Chaotic One has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the most challenging slate. Along with having the most grueling overall schedule, The Chaotic One also has the league's second-toughest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.
Doing It By Committee
By picking up a pair of Oakland Raiders RBs in the middle rounds of the draft (Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew), The Chaotic One will be hoping there are enough fantasy points to go around in that backfield.
"It's Not Whether You Get Knocked Down, It's Whether You Get Up"
After drafting the fewest projected points in the league over the draft's first half, The Chaotic One accumulated the most during the second half. Vince Lombardi would be proud.
Root, Root, Root for the Home Team
The Chaotic One is a believer in the hopes of the San Francisco 49ers this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.
Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?
With six "low-risk" players among their 15 picks, The Chaotic One is looking for dependable help.
While the bottom half of the The Chaotic One roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).
It's How You Finish
The Chaotic One must have had a motivational halftime speech, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Fajitas?
- A. Peterson, RB
- Round 1, Pick 3

The Chaotic One's Stud Signal-Caller
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 2, Pick 18
Drew Brees is projected to rack up 344 points this year, enough to rank second among all QBs.
A Sizable Target in the Red Zone
- Julius Thomas, TE
- Round 3, Pick 23
With 8 projected TD catches, Julius Thomas ranks third in the NFL among TEs in that category.
Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law
- Victor Cruz, WR
- Round 4, Pick 38
Victor Cruz is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 88 projected catches rank seventh in the league.
Was Defense a Smart Decision at Pick No. 58?
- San Francisco, DEF
- Round 6, Pick 58
The Chaotic One sure hopes so. San Francisco's D is projected to get 135 points this year, after putting up 168 last year.
If The Chaotic One has a desire to make a roster move, RB and WR are areas of need.
- Ben Tate
- Rank 80, ADP 99

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..."
