When the draft countdown clock hit zero, the GM of juan's Team put their game face on. Firing on all cylinders from the 10th spot in the draft, they put together a team that's projected to finish second in Yahoo Public 761889 League with a record of 10-4-0 (1,324 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Demaryius Thomas (first round), Dez Bryant (second round), and Michael Crabtree (fifth round). A lot will be expected of this group, as they are the best group of WRs in the league.
Week 11 may cause some frustration for juan's Team, as their top two projected scorers (Tony Romo and Dez Bryant) will be off that weekend. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the weakest slate. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, juan's Team also has the league's second-easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.
On the Rise
juan's Team hopes to break through this season, led by four players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.
Bold Strategy, juan's Team
Let's see if it pays off. In Week 11, both Dan Bailey and Nick Folk will be on bye for juan's Team.
juan's Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.
Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law
- D. Thomas, WR
- Round 1, Pick 10
Demaryius Thomas is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 106 projected catches rank second in the league.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Dez Bryant, WR
- Round 2, Pick 11
Dez Bryant was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
Rethinking That One?
- Toby Gerhart, RB
- Round 3, Pick 30
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Toby Gerhart was the weakest value pick of the round.
Rethinking That One
- M. Crabtree, WR
- Round 5, Pick 50
Michael Crabtree went with the 50th pick, but is projected to fall outside of the top-30 in the NFL in both receiving TDs (35th) and receiving yards (37th) with 5.9 and 915 respectively.
A Big, Strong Weapon
- Jordan Cameron, TE
- Round 6, Pick 51
Jordan Cameron ranks fourth in the Yahoo Public 761889 League among TEs with 126 projected fantasy points.
juan's Team could potentially upgrade QB and RB, but QB is the position they'll want to focus on first.
- Ryan Tannehill
- Rank 138, ADP 133
- Carson Palmer
- Rank 140, ADP 134
- Alex Smith
- Rank 142, ADP 125
- Sam Bradford
- Rank 170, ADP 126

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.
