Picking late (sixth overall), Danielle'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 fifth in Yahoo Public 761889 with a record of 8-6-0 (1,311 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Antonio Brown (third round), Randall Cobb (fourth round), and Cordarrelle Patterson (fifth round). They have one of the worst combos of TEs in the league, as they have Kyle Rudolph and Heath Miller.
Danielle's Team should drop off the grid during Week 9. Their top three projected scorers (Matthew Stafford, Jay Cutler and Eddie Lacy) will be off with byes. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a less-challenging-than-average slate. In addition to having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, Danielle's Team has the easiest first four games of the season.
Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away
Danielle's Team grabbed a couple of QBs (Matthew Stafford and Jay Cutler) that'll both be on bye in Week 9, and will be looking for a signal-caller. You can call Brett, but texting him isn't exactly recommended.
Carrying the Load
Danielle's Team has four above-average positions with RB and QB projected to lead the way.
On the Rise
Danielle's Team hopes to break through this season, led by five players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.
This is the American version, folks. Danielle's Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.
Team of Champions
Danielle'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 (Eddie Lacy, Antonio Brown, and Matthew Stafford).
Does Eddie Lacy Enjoy Fajitas?
- Eddie Lacy, RB
- Round 1, Pick 6
Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Lacy is projected to rank ninth in the league with 1,541 total yards.
- Arian Foster, RB
- Round 2, Pick 15
Danielle's Team stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Eddie Lacy and Arian Foster before targeting other positions.
168 More Reasons to Appreciate Antonio Brown
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 3, Pick 26
Brown ranks ninth in the Yahoo Public 761889 League among WRs with 168 projected fantasy points.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Randall Cobb, WR
- Round 4, Pick 35
Randall Cobb was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
Rethinking That One
- C. Patterson, WR
- Round 5, Pick 46
Cordarrelle Patterson went with the 46th pick, but is projected to fall outside of the top-30 in the NFL in both receiving TDs (42nd) and receiving yards (39th) with 5.6 and 909 respectively.
If Danielle's Team has a desire to make a roster move, TE and WR are areas of need.
- Tim Wright
- Rank 169, ADP 139
- Coby Fleener
- Rank 172, ADP 138
- Justin Hunter
- Rank 116, ADP 126
- Markus Wheaton
- Rank 117, ADP 128

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.
