With a Projected Finish of Ninth, Luigi Alcaraz's Team Has a Great Team if They Don't Care About Winning

Draft Summary

Luigi Alcaraz's Team does know this is "football" not "fútbol", right? Either way they turned the second overall pick into an easy win for the rest of the league, as they are projected to finish ninth in Yahoo Public 767709 League with a record of 3-11-0. They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Cam Newton (22nd overall), RB Adrian Peterson (2nd), WR Andre Johnson (39th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (19th) within the first five rounds. They have one of the most prolific TE tandems in the league, as they have Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett.

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

Schedule

Luigi Alcaraz's Team can chalk up Week 10 as a loss. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have an easier-than-average slate. Luigi Alcaraz's Team has the opportunity to close with a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Luigi Alcaraz's Team will need assistance from the waiver wire in Week 10, as their three WRs with the most projected seasonal points (Andre Johnson, Pierre Garcon, and Julian Edelman) will all be on bye that week.

  • A Good Problem to Have

    Luigi Alcaraz's Team will have some nail-biting decisions to make each week at RB, with a small projected points difference between their second- (Steven Jackson), third- (Ray Rice), and fourth-ranked (Reggie Bush) RBs.

  • On Autopilot

    Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for Luigi Alcaraz's Team, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Julian Edelman) and fourth-ranked (Anquan Boldin) wideouts.

  • Drink Plenty of Milk

    With an average of 8.4 years of NFL experience, Luigi Alcaraz's Team has the greatest chance of losing a player to osteoporosis.

  • Officially Mediocre

    While the bottom half of the Luigi Alcaraz's Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 2), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).

  • Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up

    Luigi Alcaraz's Team got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

    Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. Peterson is ranked sixth in the league with 1,608 all-purpose yards.

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 2, Pick 19
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Yahoo Public 767709 League overlooked a gem, and Luigi Alcaraz's Team made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Rob Gronkowski.

    • Cam Newton, QB
    • Round 3, Pick 22
    Rethinking That One?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, Cam Newton was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • Andre Johnson, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 39
    The Power of Persuasion

    Now would be a reasonable time for Luigi Alcaraz's Team to encourage the Yahoo Public 767709 League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Andre Johnson and his 87 projected catches (ranked ninth in the NFL).

    • Reggie Bush, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 59
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Reggie Bush, the weakest value of the round.

Best Available

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..."
