It's not everyday you see this type of draft performance. Real Expert Team took the second overall pick and turned it into what experts would describe as a "mediocre, if not disappointing," draft. They are projected to finish with a record of 3-11-0, good enough for a "book-a-weekend-getaway-during-the-playoffs," ninth, in Yahoo Public 784085 League. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Aaron Rodgers (19th overall), RBs LeSean McCoy (2nd) and Rashad Jennings (39th), and WRs Jordy Nelson (22nd) and DeSean Jackson (42nd). They have one of the best QB tandems in the league, as they have Rodgers and Andrew Luck on the roster.
Real Expert Team might as well plan a vacation for Week 10. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a more-difficult-than-average schedule. Along with the third-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Real Expert Team.
Real Expert Team must have had to leave their draft party early. After tallying the most projected points in the league over the draft's first half, they managed the fewest during the second half.
Close to the Vest
Real Expert Team was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.
You Almost Got It Right
The top half of the Real Expert Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1). The bottom of the roster, unfortunately, is rated as the league's weakest.
Checked Out Early

Full Control Early On
Real Expert Team began things with a bang, nabbing the most projected points in the league during the draft's first half.
Team of Champions
Real Expert 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, Jordy Nelson, and DeSean Jackson).
Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Fajitas?
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 1, Pick 2
Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. McCoy is projected to rank sixth in the league with 1,626 total yards.
Real Expert Team's Stud Signal-Caller
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 2, Pick 19
Aaron Rodgers is projected to rack up 325 points this year, enough to rank third among all QBs.
168 More Reasons to Appreciate Jordy Nelson
- Jordy Nelson, WR
- Round 3, Pick 22
Nelson ranks eighth in the Yahoo Public 784085 League among WRs with 168 projected fantasy points.
Yeah, But He Totally Retweeted Me Once!
- R. Jennings, RB
- Round 4, Pick 39
Although he was taken 39th overall in the fantasy draft, Rashad Jennings is not projected among the NFL's top-20 in rushing TDs (21st with 5.8) or rushing yards (22nd with 830).
Was Andrew Luck the Best Choice at Pick No. 59?
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 6, Pick 59
Real Expert Team apparently thinks so. The Colts' signal-caller is projected to have 295 points this year, almost the same as his total from last year.
With three below-average positions on Real Expert Team, TE and DEF are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Garrett Graham
- Rank 154, ADP 138
- Tim Wright
- Rank 169, ADP 139
- Baltimore Defanse
- Rank 233, ADP 144
- Tampa Bay Defanse
- Rank 239, ADP 141

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.
