Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, TASTE DWAYNE BOWE Embarrassed Themselves

Draft Summary

"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.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.


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.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    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.

Player Analysis

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    Insanely Efficient

    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
    The Alchemist

    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.

    • A. Ellington, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 43
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    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.

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 67
    Returning to Greatness

    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.

    • Shane Vereen, RB
    • Round 8, Pick 91
    Apparently ADP is Overrated

    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.

Best Available

With three below-average positions on TASTE DWAYNE BOWE, RB and DEF are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

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..."
