    ryan's Team Draft Report Card


    Despite an Exciting Set of WRs, ryan's Team Isn't Anything to Get Excited About

    Draft Summary

    While this draft by ryan's Team didn't exactly set the world on fire, it didn't destroy their playoff aspirations either. They are expected to be in the mix for a playoff spot with a projected sixth-place finish in Yahoo Public 762156 League at 6-8-0 (1,322 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on A.J. Green (first round), Julio Jones (third round), and Andre Johnson (fourth round). They landed the bottom group of RBs in the league, as they added Arian Foster, Ray Rice, and Maurice Jones-Drew.

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


    ryan's Team can chalk up Week 10 as a big fat L. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. ryan's Team has the opportunity to come out firing, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

    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.
