Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. Team put together a quality team and is projected to finish in fifth-place in Yahoo Public 795587 League at 8-6-0 (1,308 points). They went after guys who can tote the rock with their early picks, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs Montee Ball (first round), Reggie Bush (third round), and Joique Bell (fifth round). They landed the best QB duo in the league, as they have Peyton Manning and Andy Dalton on the roster.
Ever wonder what exactly was inside the brief case in Pulp Fiction? Team should use Week 4 to solve the mystery, since they certainly won't be winning. Their top three projected scorers (Peyton Manning, Andy Dalton and Montee Ball) will be off that weekend. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the toughest slate. Along with having the most grueling overall schedule, Team also has the league's second-toughest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.
Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away
Team grabbed a couple of QBs (Peyton Manning and Andy Dalton) that'll both be on bye in Week 4, and will be looking for a signal-caller. You can call Brett, but texting him isn't exactly recommended.
TE is the strongest position for Team, though QB and K aren't too shabby either.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Team will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 9, as their only K (Robbie Gould) and only DEF (Chicago) will both be on bye that week.
A Dominating Duo
Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Peyton Manning and Reggie Bush) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
Team nabbed a sleeper in Kelvin Benjamin with pick No. 130.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, Team chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Montee Ball, RB
- Round 1, Pick 10
Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Montee Ball had less value than any other pick of the round.
Fantasy is Better Than Reality
- Peyton Manning, QB
- Round 2, Pick 11
Even though he fell short in Super Bowl 48, Peyton Manning was more likely to be owned on a 2013 Yahoo! championship roster than any other QB.
He Can Catch, Too
- Reggie Bush, RB
- Round 3, Pick 30
Reggie Bush is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fourth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 513.
A Big, Strong Threat
- Rob Gronkowski, TE
- Round 6, Pick 51
Rob Gronkowski ranks second in the Yahoo Public 795587 League among TEs with 161 projected fantasy points. If the pundits are wrong and he places outside the top-10, Team could be on the outside looking in come playoff time.
Milk Was a Bad Choice
- Bernard Pierce, RB
- Round 7, Pick 70
And so was drafting Bernard Pierce, the weakest value of the round.
While Team is expected to be weak across three positions, RB is definitely their weakest unit and an area of need.
- Terrance West
- Rank 85, ADP 119
- Fred Jackson
- Rank 97, ADP 118
- Jeremy Hill
- Rank 104, ADP 123
- Devonta Freeman
- Rank 109, ADP 126

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.
