    tina's Team Draft Report Card

    B
    Grade

    Led by a Stellar WR Corps, tina's Team Is Loaded with Talent

    Draft Summary

    Putting together a decent team, tina's Team didn't want to show up the Yahoo Public 780720 League and build some unbeatable juggernaut. They instead focused on building a team with a good chance to make the playoffs. Humbly, they are expected to finish in third-place in Yahoo Public 780720 League at 10-4-0 (1,326 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Calvin Johnson (first round), Brandon Marshall (second round), and Vincent Jackson (fourth round). A lot will be expected of this group, as they are the top group of WRs in the league.

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

    Schedule

    Week 9 is not looking like a fun one for fantasy football. tina's Team should look into the joys of scrapbooking, or bird-watching, or just keep tina's Team away from the TV. It won't be pretty. 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 the weakest slate. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, tina's Team also has the league's second-easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Close to the Vest

      tina's Team was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

    • Fantasy Fútbol

      This is the American version, folks. tina's Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.

    • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

      tina's Team grabbed a sleeper in Markus Wheaton with pick No. 126.

    • Basic Math is Optional

      Michael Vick once claimed "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 664 projected rushing yards, Colin Kaepernick can channel his inner Vick to help tina's Team this year.

    • Returning to Greatness

      If special teams contributions count in Yahoo Public 780720 League, tina's Team may have found a gem in Tavon Austin. Including his 911 projected return yards, he ranks fourth in the league with 1,691 all-purpose yards.

    Player Analysis

      • Calvin Johnson, WR
      • Round 1, Pick 6
      Meeting His Expectations

      Often the only WR taken in the first round in 2013, Megatron lived up to the billing and was owned on more playoff teams across Yahoo! than any other wideout.

      • B. Marshall, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 15
      Stolen In Broad Daylight

      Brandon Marshall was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

      • Alfred Morris, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 26
      If it Ain't Broke

      Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, tina's Team didn't grab their first RB (Alfred Morris) until the third round.

      • V. Jackson, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 35
      On a Scale of 1 to America

      How free will Vincent Jackson get in the secondary? He's projected to put up 1,198 receiving yards this year.

      • Bishop Sankey, RB
      • Round 5, Pick 46
      Let Me Check it Again

      Why can't I find Bishop Sankey on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round flier."

    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..."
