    Jelani Wise's Team Draft Report Card


    Projected to Finish Fourth, Jelani Wise's Team Has the Studs to Reach Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    Picking late (eighth overall), Jelani Wise's Team did what they could with what they were given. While this team isn't a juggernaut by any means, it's a team capable of reaching the playoffs if the chips fall their way. They are expected to finish fourth in Yahoo Public 784085 with a record of 9-5-0 (1,333 points). With five WRs on the roster, Jelani Wise's Team guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 139, their WRs projected average of 134 points won't be much different than the rest of the wideouts around the league. They have the top TE tandem in the league, as they have Jimmy Graham and Ladarius Green.

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


    Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Jelani Wise'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. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the most challenging schedule. In addition to having the most taxing overall schedule, Jelani Wise's Team also has the league's second-toughest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • The Sky's the Limit

      With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Jelani Wise's Team hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

    • Fantasy FĂștbol

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

    • It's How You Finish

      Jelani Wise's Team made every other squad look silly after some amazing halftime adjustments, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

    • A Dominating Duo

      Jelani Wise's Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jimmy Graham and Matthew Stafford) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    • He Can Catch, Too

      Shane Vereen is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks first among RBs in projected receiving yards with 639.

    • Not Afraid to Scramble

      With 482 projected rushing yards (ranking fourth among QBs), Russell Wilson has multiple ways to bring in points.

    Player Analysis

      • Jimmy Graham, TE
      • Round 1, Pick 8
      Is He a Tight End or a Wide Receiver?

      Jimmy Graham was owned on more championship teams across Yahoo! than any other TE in 2013.

      • Toby Gerhart, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 28
      Toby Gerhart Doesn't Read the Playbook

      The playbook reads him. Jelani Wise's Team should be in decent shape if Gerhart gets his 288 projected touches this year.

      • Victor Cruz, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 33
      The Power of Persuasion

      Now would be a reasonable time for Jelani Wise's Team to encourage the Yahoo Public 784085 League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Victor Cruz and his 88 projected catches (ranked seventh in the NFL).

      • M. Stafford, QB
      • Round 6, Pick 53
      Is Matthew Stafford Religious?

      With 310 projected points, Jelani Wise's Team will be hoping Stafford is the answer to their prayers.

      • Mike Wallace, WR
      • Round 7, Pick 68
      Was the 68th Pick the Right Time for Mike Wallace?

      Jelani Wise's Team apparently believes it is. The Dolphins' wide receiver is projected to earn 145 points this year, after putting up 126 last year.

    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.
