Loaded With Packers, KEVIN's Quality Team Will be a Tough Team

Draft Summary

KEVIN's Quality Team figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the fifth overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 9-5-0 (1,568 points). With that record, they will likely finish fifth in Yahoo Public 795587 League. They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Keenan Allen (second round), Jordy Nelson (third round), and Demaryius Thomas (fourth round). These players will be heavily relied upon by KEVIN's Quality Team, as they are a quality group of WRs.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

KEVIN's Quality Team should use Week 11 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 four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Along with the third-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for KEVIN's Quality Team.

Draft Notes

  • Choosing the Cheeseheads

    The fantasy hopes of KEVIN's Quality Team will rest heavily on the fortunes of Green Bay, as they loaded up with four Packers on their roster.

  • On the Rise

    KEVIN's Quality Team hopes to break through this season, led by four players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.

  • Big D

    KEVIN's Quality Team elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in Yahoo Public 795587 League, KEVIN's Quality Team may have found a gem in Ameer Abdullah. Including his 598 projected return yards, he ranks eighth in the league with 1,544 all-purpose yards.

  • Mr. Relevant

    In terms of projected points, the choice of Green Bay was the strongest pick of the final round. Savvy move, KEVIN's Quality Team.

Player Analysis

    • Todd Gurley, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    No RB by Committee Here

    Look up "workhorse back" in the dictionary and there is a picture of Todd Gurley. KEVIN's Quality Team should be in good shape if he reaches his league-leading 342 projected touches this year.

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 16
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, Keenan Allen was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • Jordy Nelson, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 25
    169 Reasons for KEVIN's Quality Team to Appreciate Jordy Nelson

    Nelson ranks 10th in the Yahoo Public 795587 League among WRs with 169 projected fantasy points.

    • B. Roethlisberger, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 45

    • Denver, DEF
    • Round 6, Pick 56
    Was the 56th Pick the Right Time for a Defense?

    KEVIN's Quality Team apparently believes it is. Denver's D is projected to earn 152 points this year, after putting up 179 last year.

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..."
