With a Projected Finish of 10th, dre's Team Can Make the Playoffs if They Just Replace Most of the Team

Draft Summary

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.

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

Schedule

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.

Draft Notes

  • 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.

  • Fantasy FĂștbol

    This is the American version, folks. dre's Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.

  • Mr. Irrelevant

    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.

Player Analysis

    • Matt Forte, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Does Matt Forte Enjoy Fajitas?

    Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Forte is projected to rank third in the league with 1,701 all-purpose yards.

    • G. Bernard, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    Rethinking That One?

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

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 3, Pick 24
    Do You Know if Aaron Rodgers is Religious?

    With 325 projected points, dre's Team is hoping Rodgers will be the answer to their prayers.

    • V. Jackson, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 37
    On a Scale of 1 to America

    How free will Vincent Jackson get in the secondary this year? He's projected to reel in 1,198 receiving yards.

    • Torrey Smith, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 57
    Was Torrey Smith Worth it at Pick No. 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.

Best Available

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.

    • Rank 236, ADP 146
    • Matt Bryant
    • Rank 245, ADP 134

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..."
