    Projected to Finish Eighth, Raymond's Team Has a Great Team if Their Goal is to Finish Dead-Ass Last

    Draft Summary

    You know what, Raymond's Team, maybe you should just hold off on pursuing your dreams for a while. Maybe just ask them where they're going and hook up with 'em later, when you have a team capable of winning. Raymond's Team is projected to finish eighth in Yahoo Public 761889 League with a record of 6-8-0 (1,325 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (12th overall), RB Marshawn Lynch (9th), WR Vincent Jackson (29th), and TE Vernon Davis (49th) within the first five rounds. They have an above-average QB pair, as they have Rodgers and Colin Kaepernick on the roster.

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

    Schedule

    Raymond's Team should just disappear for a while during Week 9. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a tougher-than-average slate. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Raymond's Team.

    Draft Notes

    • Defense Wins Championships?

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

    • Basic Math is Optional

      Michael Vick once claimed "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 664 projected rushing yards, Colin Kaepernick can channel his inner Vick to help Raymond's Team this year.

    Player Analysis

      • Marshawn Lynch, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 9
      Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

      Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Marshawn Lynch had less value than any other pick of the round.

      • Aaron Rodgers, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 12
      Is Aaron Rodgers Religious?

      With 325 projected points, Raymond's Team will be hoping Rodgers is the answer to their prayers.

      • V. Jackson, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 29
      On a Scale of 1 to America

      How free will Vincent Jackson get in the secondary this year? He's projected to reel in 1,198 receiving yards.

      • Vernon Davis, TE
      • Round 5, Pick 49
      A Sizable Target in the Red Zone

      With 6.6 projected TD catches, Vernon Davis ranks fifth in the NFL among TEs in that category.

      • Seattle, DEF
      • Round 6, Pick 52
      Was Defense a Smart Decision at Pick No. 52?

      Raymond's Team sure hopes so. Seattle's D is projected to get 174 points this year, after putting up 197 last year.

    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..."
