    Projected to Finish Ninth, Real Expert Team Can Make the Playoffs if They Just Replace Most of the Team

    Draft Summary

    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.

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

    Schedule

    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.

    Draft Notes

    • Losing Focus

      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

      Real Expert Team didn't exactly wrap up the draft on a high note, ending up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

    • 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).

    Player Analysis

      • LeSean McCoy, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 2
      Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. McCoy is projected to rank sixth in the league with 1,626 total yards.

      • Aaron Rodgers, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 19
      Real Expert Team's Stud Signal-Caller

      Aaron Rodgers is projected to rack up 325 points this year, enough to rank third among all QBs.

      • Jordy Nelson, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 22

      Nelson ranks eighth in the Yahoo Public 784085 League among WRs with 168 projected fantasy points.

      • R. Jennings, RB
      • Round 4, Pick 39
      Yeah, But He Totally Retweeted Me Once!

      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).

      • Andrew Luck, QB
      • Round 6, Pick 59
      Was Andrew Luck the Best Choice at Pick No. 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.

    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..."
