It was almost too hard to watch as Clubber Lang took the fourth pick and drove any playoff hopes they had right off a cliff. They are projected to finish 3-11-0 (2,153), bad enough for an eighth-place finish in VBowl League. They wanted to shore up any RB concerns early, using three of their first five draft picks to draft RBs Marshawn Lynch (first round), Matt Forte (second round), and Joseph Randle (fifth round). This group will have to produce in order for Clubber Lang to have a good season, as they are the highest-scoring RB duo in the league.
Clubber Lang should use Week 8 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why do we park in a driveway but drive on a parkway? It will be better to think about that than to check fantasy football. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. Along with the third-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Clubber Lang.
Earning Your Paycheck
Clubber Lang will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Roddy White), fourth- (Mike Wallace), and fifth-ranked (Eddie Royal) wideouts.
TE or Bust
TE is the only stronger-than-average position group for Clubber Lang.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, Clubber Lang chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
Jonas Gray is owned in only 5% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Clubber Lang has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.
He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy
- Marshawn Lynch, RB
- Round 1, Pick 4
With 313 touches, Marshawn Lynch is projected to rank fourth in the NFL in that category. How touching, Clubber Lang.
- Matt Forte, RB
- Round 2, Pick 17
Clubber Lang stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, nabbing Marshawn Lynch and Matt Forte right off the bat.
Will a Run-Heavy Offense Hurt Production?
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 4, Pick 37
Clubber Lang sure hopes not. Though he might not put up New Orleans-esque numbers, Graham is almost certain to be one of Russell Wilson's favorite targets moving forward.
Do You Know if Matt Ryan is Religious?
- Matt Ryan, QB
- Round 6, Pick 57
With 448 projected points, Clubber Lang is hoping Ryan will be the answer to their prayers.
A Bit of a Reach
- John Brown, WR
- Round 8, Pick 77
Clubber Lang went out on a limb with their eighth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, John Brown has an ADP of 110.1, but he was grabbed at pick No. 77. Patience is a virtue, Clubber Lang.
While Clubber Lang is projected to have five below-average positions, WR is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.
- Marques Colston
- Rank 89, ADP 110
- Devin Funchess
- Rank 96, ADP 119
- Brandon LaFell
- Rank 109, ADP 107
- Kendall Wright
- Rank 111, ADP 125

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.
