    K.BARBIE's Team Draft Report Card

    Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, K.BARBIE's Team Should Have Tried Harder

    Draft Summary

    If K.BARBIE's Team handles adversity during the season the way they did in this draft, it's going to be a long year. After receiving the ninth overall pick they were clearly rattled, which was made evident by their draft performance. As a result, they are projected to finish eighth in Yahoo Public 795587 League with a record of 5-9-0 (1,305 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Dez Bryant (first round), A.J. Green (second round), and Michael Crabtree (fifth round). They have the worst group of RBs in the league, as they have C.J. Spiller, Ryan Mathews, and Shane Vereen on the roster.

    Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    Week 4 might require some artful managing from K.BARBIE's Team. 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 most difficult slates. Along with the second-most demanding overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for K.BARBIE's Team.

    Draft Notes

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

      K.BARBIE's Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

    • A Versatile Combination

      Shane Vereen can hurt opponents with his hands as well as his feet. He ranks first among RBs in projected receiving yards with 639.

    • Not Afraid to Scramble

      With 482 projected rushing yards (ranking fourth among QBs), Russell Wilson has multiple ways to bring in points.

    Player Analysis

      • Dez Bryant, WR
      • Round 1, Pick 9
      It's Normal to Have Those Feelings at Your Age

      Terrell Owens once said "I love me some me." While T.O. falls in love with himself, K.BARBIE's Team is head over heels for Dez Bryant, who's projected to lead all WRs with 207 fantasy points.

      • A.J. Green, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 12

      • C.J. Spiller, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 29
      If it Ain't Broke

      Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, K.BARBIE's Team didn't grab their first RB (C.J. Spiller) until the third round.

      • Ryan Mathews, RB
      • Round 4, Pick 32
      Rarely Seen in the Wild

      With 1,039 projected yards on the ground, Ryan Mathews is an elusive three-down back.

      • M. Crabtree, WR
      • Round 5, Pick 49
      Rethinking That One

      While drafted 49th overall, Michael Crabtree isn't projected among the NFL's top-30 in either receiving TDs (35th with 5.9) or receiving yards (37th with 915).

    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..."
