    Slated for a Fourth-Place Finish, matthew's Team Is a Team to Watch

    Draft Summary

    Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. matthew's Team put together a quality team and is projected to finish in fourth-place in Yahoo Public 795587 League at 8-6-0 (1,330 points). With five WRs on the roster, matthew's Team guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 142, their WRs projected average of 138 points won't be much different than the rest of the wideouts around the league. They landed the lowest-scoring QB duo in the league, as they have Nick Foles and Josh McCown 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

    Week 10 would be a good opportunity for matthew's Team to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for matthew's Team.

    Draft Notes

    • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

      matthew's Team grabbed a couple of QBs (Nick Foles and Josh McCown) that'll both be on bye in Week 7, and will be looking for a signal-caller. You can call Brett, but texting him isn't exactly recommended.

    • The Sky's the Limit

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

    • Big D

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

    • A Dominating Duo

      matthew's Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jimmy Graham and DeSean Jackson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    Player Analysis

      • Jimmy Graham, TE
      • Round 1, Pick 7
      A Return to Huge Numbers

      Sean Payton's return to the Saints' sideline seemed to work out for Jimmy Graham, who was owned on more championship rosters across Yahoo! than any other TE.

      • Alfred Morris, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 27
      Earning His Keep

      Alfred Morris is expected to finish seventh in the NFL with 8.8 rushing TDs and fifth with 1,147 rushing yards.

      • Randall Cobb, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 34
      162 More Reasons to Appreciate Randall Cobb

      Cobb ranks 10th in the Yahoo Public 795587 League among WRs with 162 projected fantasy points.

      • Percy Harvin, WR
      • Round 5, Pick 47
      Returning to Greatness

      If special teams contributions count in Yahoo Public 795587 League, matthew's Team may have found a gem in Percy Harvin. Including his 766 projected return yards, he ranks fourth in the league with 1,686 all-purpose yards.

      • DeSean Jackson, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 54
      Was the 54th Pick the Right Time for DeSean Jackson?

      matthew's Team apparently believes it is. The Redskins' wide receiver is projected to put up only 142 points this year, after netting 187 last year.

    Best Available

    While matthew's Team is projected to have three subpar positions, QB is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.

      • Carson Palmer
      • Rank 140, ADP 133
      • Alex Smith
      • Rank 142, ADP 125
      • Joe Flacco

    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..."
