Is someone going to put out that dumpster fire? Oh, whoops, that's not a dumpster fire that's the dre's Team roster. Easy mistake with a team that needs this much work. As the roster stands, dre's Team is projected to finish 10th in Yahoo Public 795587 League with a record of 3-11-0 (1,330 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Aaron Rodgers (24th overall), RBs Matt Forte (4th) and Giovani Bernard (17th), and WRs Vincent Jackson (37th) and Pierre Garcon (44th). They landed one of the lowest-scoring groups of WRs in the league, as they have Jackson, Garcon, and Torrey Smith on the roster.
dre's Team should just disappear for a while during Week 9. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for dre's Team.
Carrying the Load
dre's Team has four above-average positions with RB and DEF projected to lead the way.
AARP Card's in the Mail
With an average of 7.7 years of NFL experience, dre's Team is the team most likely to have a player qualify for a senior citizen discount.
This is the American version, folks. dre's Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.
In terms of projected points, the choice of Dan Carpenter with the 144th pick gave dre's Team the worst pick of the final round. This Mr. Irrelevant gets no parade, unfortunately.
Does Matt Forte Enjoy Fajitas?
- Matt Forte, RB
- Round 1, Pick 4
Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Forte is projected to rank third in the league with 1,701 all-purpose yards.
Rethinking That One?
- G. Bernard, RB
- Round 2, Pick 17
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Giovani Bernard was the weakest value pick of the round.
Do You Know if Aaron Rodgers is Religious?
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 3, Pick 24
With 325 projected points, dre's Team is hoping Rodgers will be the answer to their prayers.
On a Scale of 1 to America
- V. Jackson, WR
- Round 4, Pick 37
How free will Vincent Jackson get in the secondary this year? He's projected to reel in 1,198 receiving yards.
Was Torrey Smith Worth it at Pick No. 57?
- Torrey Smith, WR
- Round 6, Pick 57
dre's Team sure hopes so. The Ravens' WR is projected to have 138 points this year, almost the same as his total from last season.
dre's Team is projected to have a pair of subpar positions (K and WR), but K is clearly their worst unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.
- Graham Gano
- Rank 236, ADP 146
- Matt Bryant
- Rank 245, ADP 134
- Alex Henery
- Rank 252, ADP 135

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.
