Maybe if Go Long purchases a lift kit and some giant tires for this roster it won't seem so average. The playoffs are not out of reach for this team, but it will require some effort. They are projected to finish seventh in Yahoo Public 803059 with a record of 5-9-0 (1,318 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Peyton Manning (13th overall), RB Reggie Bush (48th), WR Antonio Brown (28th), and TE Jimmy Graham (8th) within the first five rounds. They landed the highest-scoring QB duo in the league, as they added Manning and Alex Smith.
While Week 10 has the most players on bye for Go Long (four), Week 4 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a harder-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 Go Long.
Earning Your Paycheck
Go Long will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Emmanuel Sanders), fourth- (Golden Tate), and fifth-ranked (Marvin Jones) wideouts.
A Good Problem to Have
Go Long will have some nail-biting decisions to make each week at RB, with a small projected points difference between their second- (Trent Richardson), third- (Chris Johnson), and fourth-ranked (Reggie Bush) RBs.
Team of Champions
Go Long is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams, including Jimmy Graham, Peyton Manning, and Antonio Brown.
Go Long scored the best value pick of the final round, drafting Alex Smith at pick number 148.
Is He a Tight End or a Wide Receiver?
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 1, Pick 8
Jimmy Graham was owned on more championship teams across Yahoo! than any other TE in 2013.
Fantasy is Better Than Reality
- Peyton Manning, QB
- Round 2, Pick 13
Even though he fell short in Super Bowl 48, Peyton Manning was more likely to be owned on a 2013 Yahoo! championship roster than any other QB.
The Power of Persuasion
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 3, Pick 28
Now would be a reasonable time for Go Long to encourage the Yahoo Public 803059 League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Antonio Brown and his 95 projected catches (ranked fourth in the NFL).
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 4, Pick 33
Keenan Allen will look to haunt the dreams of opposing corners, as he's projected to finish 10th in the NFL with 8.1 receiving TDs.
Let Me Check it Again
- Reggie Bush, RB
- Round 5, Pick 48
Why can't I find Reggie Bush on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round flier."
While Go Long is expected to be weak across three positions, DEF is definitely their worst unit and an area of need.
- Baltimore Defanse
- Rank 233, ADP 144
- Tampa Bay Defanse
- Rank 239, ADP 141
- New York Defanse
- Rank 240, ADP 123
- Miami Defanse
- Rank 242, 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.
