Despite a Set of Beast RBs, Bulls On Parade Has Roster Filled with Meh

Draft Summary

The GM of Bulls On Parade took the second overall pick in the draft and turned it into a pretty decent team. Unless of course they planned on winning, because if that was the plan, then it didn't go very well. Bulls On Parade will need to make some moves to improve their playoff chances, currently projected to finish seventh in Yahoo Public 795587 League with a record of 6-8-0 (1,324 points). They wanted to shore up any RB concerns early, using three of their first five draft picks to draft RBs Jamaal Charles (first round), Andre Ellington (second round), and Rashad Jennings (fourth round). If these players can play up to expectations, Bulls On Parade can have some success. They are the most prolific group of RBs in the league.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

While Week 10 has the most players on bye for Bulls On Parade (four), Week 9 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Looking at the entire season, they have a harder-than-average slate. Corresponding with the third-most grueling overall schedule, Bulls On Parade also has the league's toughest first four games and second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Earning Your Paycheck

    Bulls On Parade will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Kenny Britt), fourth- (Brian Hartline), and fifth-ranked (DeAndre Hopkins) wideouts.

  • The Sky's the Limit

    With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Bulls On Parade hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb

    The GM of Bulls On Parade must have had to leave their draft party early. After tallying the most projected points in the league over the draft's first half, they racked up the fewest during the second half.

  • The Best Player Plays

    Bulls On Parade is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 4.8 years of NFL experience.

  • You Almost Got It Right

    The top half of the Bulls On Parade roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1). The bottom of the roster, unfortunately, is rated as the league's weakest.

  • Going Out with a Whimper

    Bulls On Parade didn't end the night the way they might have liked, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • Jamaal Charles, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    2014 Could be More of the Same

    Owners who took a chance on Charles last season were rewarded handsomely, as he was owned on more playoff rosters across Yahoo! than any other RB.

    • A. Ellington, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 19
    Does Andre Ellington Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

    Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. Ellington is ranked eighth in the league with 1,594 all-purpose yards.

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 22
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    Julio Jones was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

    • R. Jennings, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 39
    Yeah, But He Totally Retweeted Me Once!

    Although he was taken 39th overall in the fantasy draft, Rashad Jennings is not projected among the NFL's top-20 in rushing TDs (21st with 5.8) or rushing yards (22nd with 830).

    • Andre Johnson, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 42
    Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law

    Andre Johnson is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 87 projected catches rank ninth in the league.

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..."
