Joe Theismann once said "a genius is a guy like Norman Einstein." No one will mistake the GM of JONESTOWN for Norman Einstein after this draft, putting together a roster that is projected to finish eighth in Salt City Reefers League and miss the playoffs. Unless changes are made, they will likely finish with a record of 5-8-0 (1,880 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Andrew Luck (1st overall), RB Carlos Hyde (48th), WR Amari Cooper (25th), and TE Jimmy Graham (24th) within the first five rounds. They have the lowest-scoring group of RBs in the league, as they added Hyde, Doug Martin, and Darren McFadden.
JONESTOWN has one below-average position, RB, that they should attempt to upgrade.
Week 9 might require some additional effort if they hope to win, as their top two projected scorers (Andrew Luck and Philip Rivers) will have a bye week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the most difficult slates. In addition to having the third-most taxing overall schedule, JONESTOWN has the most difficult last four games of the season.
Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away
It's likely that in Week 10, JONESTOWN will either be scraping the wire or begging for a trade (Andrew Luck and Philip Rivers will both be on bye). You can give Favre a call, but texting him isn't recommended.
Good Luck With That One!
JONESTOWN will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Charles Johnson), fourth- (Rueben Randle), and fifth-ranked (Breshad Perriman) wideouts.
JONESTOWN elected to go with three DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
JONESTOWN Went All YOLO Here
Grabbing Daniel Herron at pick 216 was just a bit of a stretch. Herron is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
JONESTOWN is No Photographer
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 1, Pick 1
But they can picture a fantasy championship with Andrew Luck projected to put up 428 points this year.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 2, Pick 24
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Jimmy Graham was the weakest value pick of the round.
Oakland's New Toy
- Amari Cooper, WR
- Round 3, Pick 25
And now JONESTOWN gets to play, too. Cooper's projected to finish in the top-20 for receptions this year, something that hasn't happened in Oakland since Jerry Porter ten years ago.
If it Ain't Broke
- Carlos Hyde, RB
- Round 4, Pick 48
Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, JONESTOWN didn't grab their first RB (Carlos Hyde) until the fourth round.
Taking a Chance
- Doug Martin, RB
- Round 5, Pick 49
With their fifth-round pick, JONESTOWN threw caution to the wind. They took Doug Martin at pick number 49 despite an ADP of 95.3 across all Yahoo! leagues.

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..."
