Watch out. Somebody let Cook loose in the draft room. When the smoke cleared, all that was left was an elite squad capable of destroying opponents at will. They are projected to finish second in isotopes League with a record of 10-3-0 (1,234 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Matthew Stafford (41st overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (1st) and C.J. Spiller (40th), and WRs Brandon Marshall (20th) and Julio Jones (21st). They put together the highest-scoring group of WRs in the league, as they have Marshall, Jones, and Larry Fitzgerald.
Cook should do pretty much anything other than watch football during Week 9. They have seven players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the least challenging slates. Corresponding with the second-easiest overall schedule, Cook also has the league's second-easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.
Stockpiling Talent at WR
Cook should be in good shape with four position groups projected to be better-than-average. WR is definitely the strongest among them.
Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Fajitas?
- A. Peterson, RB
- Round 1, Pick 1
Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Peterson is projected to rank sixth in the league with 1,644 all-purpose yards.
The Power of Persuasion
- B. Marshall, WR
- Round 2, Pick 20
Now would be a reasonable time for Cook to encourage the isotopes League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Brandon Marshall and his 94 projected catches (ranked fifth in the NFL).
Is Being a Fantasy Monster a Crime?
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 3, Pick 21
Julio Jones would be guilty as charged. Jones is projected to be the fifth-best WR in the league this season.
Like a Prancing Unicorn
- M. Stafford, QB
- Round 5, Pick 41
Matthew Stafford is a fantasy dream. He's projected to finish third in the NFL in both passing TDs (31.5) and passing yards (4,942).
- L. Fitzgerald, WR
- Round 6, Pick 60
If other Yahoo! users are right, Cook got a steal in the sixth round, when they selected Larry Fitzgerald (60th overall pick vs. ADP of 36.9).
If Cook wants to upgrade, TE and RB are areas they could go after first.
- Tyler Eifert
- Rank 157, ADP 133
- Garrett Graham
- Rank 161, ADP 137
- Jeremy Hill
- Rank 95, ADP 121
- Bernard Pierce
- Rank 101, ADP 122

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.
