Projected to Finish First, dee's Tip-Top Team Is Going to Crush Everyone

Draft Summary

dee's Tip-Top Team proved on draft day that when the lights come on, they perform, building a strong team capable of beating anyone on the schedule. They are expected to finish first in Yahoo Public 803059 League with a record of 13-1-0 (1,414 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Drew Brees (18th overall), RB Adrian Peterson (3rd), WR Larry Fitzgerald (38th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (43rd) within the first five rounds. They built the lowest-scoring TE tandem in the league, as they have Gronkowski and Tony Gonzalez on their team.

With a draft like that, you might as well make it official. Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, dee's Tip-Top Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the easiest slates. Along with the third-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for dee's Tip-Top Team.

Draft Notes

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    At three different positions, dee's Tip-Top Team picked up projected top-two players (Seattle, Drew Brees, and Rob Gronkowski).

  • Close to the Vest

    dee's Tip-Top Team was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    dee's Tip-Top Team will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 4, as their only K (Steven Hauschka) and only DEF (Seattle) will both be on bye that week.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the dee's Tip-Top Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 8).

  • Full Control Early On

    dee's Tip-Top Team began things with a bang, nabbing the most projected points in the league during the draft's first half.

  • A Bit of a Reach

    dee's Tip-Top Team went out on a limb with their ninth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Ray Rice has an ADP of 100, but he was grabbed at pick No. 83. Patience is a virtue, dee's Tip-Top Team.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Fajitas?

    Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Peterson is projected to rank eighth in the league with 1,608 all-purpose yards.

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Like a Prancing Unicorn

    Drew Brees is a fantasy dream. He's projected to finish second in the NFL in both passing TDs (37.9) and passing yards (5,106).

    • Le'Veon Bell, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 23
    Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

    Get on up, it's Le'Veon Bell time! He should run cool this season with 196 projected points.

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 43
    Haters Gonna Hate

    The rest of Yahoo Public 803059 League overlooked a gem, and dee's Tip-Top Team made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Rob Gronkowski.

    • Torrey Smith, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 58
    Was the 58th Pick the Right Time for Torrey Smith?

    dee's Tip-Top Team apparently believes it is. The Ravens' wide receiver is projected to have 138 points this year, almost the same as his total from last year.

Best Available

dee's Tip-Top Team is projected to have a pair of below-average positions (TE and WR), but TE is clearly their weakest unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.

    • Rank 154, ADP 138
    • Tim Wright
    • Rank 169, ADP 139
    • Coby Fleener

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..."
