    Yo Mammy Draft Report Card


    Led by an Elite Group of RBs, Yo Mammy Is Loaded with Talent

    Draft Summary

    Yo Mammy figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the fourth overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 7-6-0 (1,216 points). With that record, they will likely finish fifth in isotopes League. With three RBs on the roster, Yo Mammy should have no problem toting the rock. Their RBs are projected to surpass the league average of 169 with a projection of 189 points this season. They ended up with the best TE duo in the league, as they have Jimmy Graham and Jordan Reed.

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


    Yo Mammy should use Week 10 to consider life's great mysteries, like why abbreviation is such a long word. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. 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 a tougher-than-average schedule. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Yo Mammy.

    Draft Notes

    • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

      At three different positions, Yo Mammy picked up projected top-two players (Jimmy Graham, Stephen Gostkowski, and Dan Bailey).

    • Putting Their Best Foot Forward

      Yo Mammy knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

    • Defense Wins Championships?

      Yo Mammy chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

    • A Pair of Proven Winners

      Yo Mammy has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Matt Forte and Jimmy Graham) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    Player Analysis

      • Matt Forte, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 4
      Does Matt Forte Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Forte is projected to rank fourth in the league with 1,702 total yards.

      • Jimmy Graham, TE
      • Round 2, Pick 17
      A Return to Huge Numbers

      Sean Payton's return to the Saints' sideline seemed to work out for Jimmy Graham, who was owned on more championship rosters across Yahoo! than any other TE.

      • A. Ellington, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 24
      Mr. Do-It-All

      Andre Ellington is projected to finish fifth in the league with 1,508 total yards (1,035 rushing, 472 receiving).

      • Cam Newton, QB
      • Round 6, Pick 57
      Dual-Threat Dynamo

      Cam Newton can deliver fantasy glory to Yo Mammy with his arm and his legs. Newton has 592 projected rushing yards, and ranks second among QBs in that category.

      • New England, DEF
      • Round 7, Pick 64
      Don't Get Defensive Over This

      But Yo Mammy drafted New England with the 64th pick, even though their ADP is only 89.1 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    Best Available

    QB and DEF are expected to be the worst positions for Yo Mammy and a potential area of need.

      • Ryan Tannehill
      • Rank 138, ADP 134
      • Josh McCown
      • Rank 141, ADP 134

    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..."
