Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, zaria's Crazy Team Is Going to Have a Rough Season

Draft Summary

As Ricky Bobby's dad once told him, "If you ain't first you're last." zaria's Crazy Team really took that message to heart as they're projected to finish near the bottom of Yahoo Public 780720 League with a record of 5-9-0 (1,305). While they'll try to blame their poor season on the bad draft slot, the other GMs will know zaria's Crazy Team simply just dropped the ball. They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Dez Bryant (first round), Randall Cobb (fourth round), and DeSean Jackson (fifth round). They landed the lowest-scoring QB pair in the league, as they added Tony Romo and Josh McCown.

Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

Schedule

Week 9 could be a frustrating one for zaria's Crazy Team, as their top two projected scorers (Tony Romo and Dez Bryant) will be off with byes. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the least challenging slates. Corresponding with the second-easiest overall schedule, zaria's Crazy Team also has the league's easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

    zaria's Crazy Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • A Bit of a Reach

    zaria's Crazy Team went out on a limb with their ninth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Nick Novak has an ADP of 141.6, but he was grabbed at pick No. 89. Patience is a virtue, zaria's Crazy Team.

Player Analysis

    • Dez Bryant, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 9
    Bryant is More of a Full-Service Guy

    Rodney Dangerfield claimed he once went to a massage parlor that was self-service. With 207 projected fantasy points this year, Dez Bryant should serve zaria's Crazy Team a little better than that.

    • Marshawn Lynch, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 12
    Is His Jersey Made of Honey?

    Because the projections for Marshawn Lynch are sweet. He's projected to be the seventh-best RB in the league this season.

    • Randall Cobb, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 32
    162 Excuses to Cheer for Randall Cobb

    Cobb ranks 10th in the Yahoo Public 780720 League among wideouts with 162 projected fantasy points.

    • Vernon Davis, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 52
    Was the 52nd Pick the Right Time for Vernon Davis?

    zaria's Crazy Team apparently believes it is. The 49ers' tight end is only predicted to have 102 points this year, after producing 161 last year.

    • Tony Romo, QB
    • Round 7, Pick 69
    Arm Cannon

    Tony Romo is one of the most dynamic NFL QBs. Projections have him ranking fifth in plays over 40 yards with 11.2 and TDs over 40 yards with 4.3.

Best Available

With three subpar positions on zaria's Crazy Team, QB and TE are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

    • Carson Palmer

    • Rank 142, ADP 125
    • Antonio Gates
    • Rank 173, ADP 120

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..."
