"With the sixth pick in the draft, TASTE DWAYNE BOWE selects: Tim Tebow." OK maybe it wasn't that bad, but it might as well have been. Despite being gifted a favorable draft position (sixth), TASTE DWAYNE BOWE is expected to struggle, finishing 11th in Salt City Reefers League with a record of 4-9-0 (1,932 points). They wanted to make sure they had plenty of wideout options, picking Randall Cobb (second round), Brandin Cooks (third round), Jarvis Landry (sixth round), and Nelson Agholor (seventh round) with four of their first seven selections. This group will have to produce in order for TASTE DWAYNE BOWE to have a good season, as they are one of the highest-scoring groups of WRs in the league.
TASTE DWAYNE BOWE will need to plan ahead for Week 5, as their top two projected scorers (Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb) will be resting that weekend. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a harder-than-average schedule. Along with the sixth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for TASTE DWAYNE BOWE.
TASTE DWAYNE BOWE is stacked at QB, but WR isn't too shabby, either.
No Back-Up No Cry
Ignoring roster depth, TASTE DWAYNE BOWE picked only one player at three different positions (QB, TE, and DEF).
A Stretch of the Imagination
Grabbing Antone Smith at pick 187 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Smith is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 1, Pick 6
Despite attempting 32.5 passes per game (just 22nd in the league), Rodgers threw for the seventh-most yards (4,381) and third-most TDs (38) last season. A whopping 33 QBs tossed more interceptions than Rodgers' five.
- Randall Cobb, WR
- Round 2, Pick 19
TASTE DWAYNE BOWE chose the WR most likely to turn deep balls into TD gold. Randall Cobb is projected to lead all NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 5.7 and TDs over 40 yards with 2.2.
Better Lucky Than Good?
- A. Ellington, RB
- Round 4, Pick 43
The rest of Salt City Reefers League overlooked a gem, and TASTE DWAYNE BOWE made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Andre Ellington.
Returning to Greatness
- Jarvis Landry, WR
- Round 6, Pick 67
If special teams contributions count in Salt City Reefers League, TASTE DWAYNE BOWE may have found a gem in Jarvis Landry. Including his 1,218 projected return yards, he ranks first in the league with 2,169 all-purpose yards.
Apparently ADP is Overrated
- Shane Vereen, RB
- Round 8, Pick 91
With their eighth-round pick, TASTE DWAYNE BOWE pulled the trigger. They took Shane Vereen at pick number 91 despite an ADP of just 118.9 across all Yahoo! leagues.
With three below-average positions on TASTE DWAYNE BOWE, RB and DEF are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.
- Minnesota Defense
- Rank 249, ADP 124
- Cincinnati Defense
- Rank 254, ADP 124

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.
