Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. Ex-Heisman put together a quality team and is projected to finish in fourth-place in VBowl League at 10-4-0 (2,371 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Demaryius Thomas (second round), Alshon Jeffery (third round), and DeAndre Hopkins (fourth round). A lot will be expected of this group, as they are a legit group of WRs.
Week 9 might require some artful managing from Ex-Heisman. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have an easier-than-average slate. Ex-Heisman has the opportunity to exit the gates quickly, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Carrying the Load
Ex-Heisman has five above-average positions with TE and RB projected to lead the way.
Separating the Wheat from the Chaff
At three different positions, Ex-Heisman picked up projected top-two players (Stephen Gostkowski, Buffalo, and Travis Kelce).
Close to the Vest
Ex-Heisman was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing eight "low-risk" players out of 16 picks.
This is the American version, folks. Ex-Heisman elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.
Ex-Heisman elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
If other Yahoo! users are right, Ex-Heisman got a steal in the 10th round, when they selected Vincent Jackson (94th overall pick vs. ADP of 69.5).
Like Your First Root Canal
- Jamaal Charles, RB
- Round 1, Pick 7
The projections for Jamaal Charles are scary. He's projected to be the fourth-best RB in the league this season with 278 projected fantasy points.
The Man at Mile-High
- D. Thomas, WR
- Round 2, Pick 14
Across all Yahoo! leagues last season, just three WRs (Brown, Sanders, Maclin) appeared more often on first-place rosters than Thomas.
278 Reasons for Ex-Heisman to Appreciate Alshon Jeffery
- Alshon Jeffery, WR
- Round 3, Pick 27
Jeffery ranks eighth in the VBowl League among WRs with 278 projected fantasy points.
- A. Ellington, RB
- Round 5, Pick 47
With their fifth-round pick, Ex-Heisman pulled the trigger. They drafted Andre Ellington at pick number 47 despite an ADP of just 59.8 across all Yahoo! leagues.
A Big, Strong Threat
- Travis Kelce, TE
- Round 6, Pick 54
Travis Kelce ranks second in the VBowl League among TEs with 203 projected fantasy points. If the pundits are wrong and he places outside the top-10, Ex-Heisman could be on the outside looking in come playoff time.
Ex-Heisman has one below-average position, QB, that they should attempt to upgrade.

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.
