Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, HomelessBoi's Team Owned This Draft

Draft Summary

Before the draft, no one would have expected this squad to end up with a projected finish of second. HomelessBoi's Team turned the sixth overall pick into a season potentially filled with success. They're expected to finish 12-2-0 (1,611 points) in Yahoo Public 778365 League. They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs A.J. Green (second round), Brandon Marshall (third round), and Eric Decker (fifth round). If these players can play up to expectations, HomelessBoi's Team can have some success. They are a legit group of WRs.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, HomelessBoi'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 entire season, they have the least difficult schedule. Along with the easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for HomelessBoi's Team.

Draft Notes

  • Team of Champions?

    HomelessBoi's Team is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Todd Gurley, Brandon Marshall, and Gary Barnidge.

  • Big D

    HomelessBoi's Team elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • Not Afraid to Scramble

    With 498 projected rushing yards (ranked second among QBs), Tyrod Taylor has multiple ways to bring in points.

Player Analysis

    • Todd Gurley, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    Feed The Beast

    Over here we have a rarity in the wild named Todd Gurley. Projected to get a league-leading 342 touches, he feasts on feeble defenses.

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    186 Reasons for HomelessBoi's Team to Appreciate A.J. Green

    Green ranks sixth in the Yahoo Public 778365 League among WRs with 186 projected fantasy points.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 26
    Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law

    Brandon Marshall is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 92 projected catches rank seventh in the league.

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 55
    Like Marino in His Prime

    Drew Brees is projected to lead the NFL in both passing yards (4,799) and passing TDs (31.3).

    • Gary Barnidge, TE
    • Round 7, Pick 66
    Gary the Great

    Drafting for last year's results is risky, but Barnidge did rank second among TEs for targets (125), third for receptions (79), fourth for yardage (1,043), and fourth for TDs (nine).

Best Available

TE and DEF are expected to be the weakest positions for HomelessBoi's Team and a potential area of need.

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..."
