Putting together a playoff-caliber roster, David's Team didn't break any records with this draft, but they put together a quality team that will be tough to match up against. Looking at their schedule, they figure to reach the playoffs with a 8-6-0 (1,339) record and fifth-place finish in Yahoo Public 767709 League. They have five decent WRs on the roster that are projected to average 148 points this season, near the league average of 141. They put together the worst TE combo in the league, as they have Julius Thomas and Tim Wright.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, David's Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. Along with having the third-most grueling overall schedule, David's Team also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.
Good Luck With That One!
David's Team will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Mike Wallace), fourth- (Torrey Smith), and fifth-ranked (Terrance Williams) wideouts.
Team of Champions
David'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 (LeSean McCoy, Alshon Jeffery, and Julius Thomas).
Defense Wins Championships?
David's Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 1, Pick 1
Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. McCoy is ranked fifth in the league with 1,626 all-purpose yards.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- G. Bernard, RB
- Round 2, Pick 20
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Giovani Bernard was the weakest value pick of the round.
175 More Reasons to Appreciate Alshon Jeffery

- Round 3, Pick 21
Jeffery ranks seventh in the Yahoo Public 767709 League among WRs with 175 projected fantasy points.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Julius Thomas, TE
- Round 4, Pick 40
Julius Thomas was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
Was Torrey Smith Worth it at Pick No. 60?
- Torrey Smith, WR
- Round 6, Pick 60
David's Team sure hopes so. The Ravens' WR is projected to have 138 points this year, almost the same as his total from last season.
David's Team has three positions where an upgrade could be beneficial, with TE being the most immediate need.
- Coby Fleener
- Rank 172, ADP 138

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.
