Whether or not Brawndo was talking trash in the draft chat room is irrelevant and you have no proof. What there is proof of, though, is a dominant draft performance by Brawndo that led to a season projection of 10-3-0 (1,264 points) and a first-place finish in isotopes League. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Drew Brees (18th overall), RBs Jamaal Charles (3rd) and Alfred Morris (23rd), and WRs Vincent Jackson (38th) and Percy Harvin (43rd). They put together one of the best groups of RBs in the league, as they added Charles, Morris, and Steven Jackson.
Week 6 might require some waiver-wire magic from Brawndo. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the softest schedules. Along with the third-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Brawndo.
Separating the Wheat from the Chaff
At three different positions, Brawndo picked up projected top-two players (Jamaal Charles, Drew Brees, and Carolina).
Close to the Vest
Brawndo was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 14 picks.
How Much Tread's Left on the Tires
With an average of 8.5 years of NFL experience, Brawndo is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.
The top half of the Brawndo roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).
Full Control Early On
Brawndo began things with a bang, nabbing the most projected points in the league during the draft's first half.
A Dominating Duo
Brawndo has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jamaal Charles and Drew Brees) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
Choosy Moms Choose Jamaal
- Jamaal Charles, RB
- Round 1, Pick 3
Owners who took a chance on Jamaal Charles were rewarded nicely last year, as he was owned on more playoff rosters across Yahoo! than any other RB.
A Super Duper Signal-Caller
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 2, Pick 18
Drew Brees is projected to rack up 372 points this year, enough to rank second among all QBs.
Earning His Keep
- Alfred Morris, RB
- Round 3, Pick 23
Alfred Morris is expected to finish eighth in the NFL with 8.6 rushing TDs and fifth with 1,149 rushing yards.
Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law
- V. Jackson, WR
- Round 4, Pick 38
Vincent Jackson is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 88 projected catches rank ninth in the league.
That Just Happened
- Percy Harvin, WR
- Round 5, Pick 43
Why can't I find Percy Harvin on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round value."
With three subpar positions on Brawndo, WR and TE are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Wes Welker
- Rank 76, ADP 48
- Brandin Cooks
- Rank 86, ADP 102
- Tyler Eifert
- Rank 157, ADP 133
- Garrett Graham
- Rank 161, ADP 137

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.
