Led by a Stellar WR Corps, obrian's Boss Team Can Compete With Anyone

Draft Summary

Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. obrian's Boss Team put together a quality team and is projected to finish in third-place in Yahoo Public 803059 League at 9-5-0 (1,367 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Demaryius Thomas (first round), Dez Bryant (second round), and Michael Crabtree (fifth round). If these players can play up to expectations, obrian's Boss Team can have some success. They are the top group of WRs in the league.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

obrian's Boss Team should use Week 8 to consider life's great mysteries, like why abbreviation is such a long word. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a softer-than-average slate. Although they have the fifth-easiest overall schedule, obrian's Boss Team actually has the toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Earning Your Paycheck

    obrian's Boss Team will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Michael Crabtree), fourth- (Markus Wheaton), and fifth-ranked (Sammy Watkins) wideouts.

  • Fantasy Fútbol

    This is the American version, folks. obrian's Boss Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.

  • It's How You Finish

    obrian's Boss Team made every other squad look silly after some amazing halftime adjustments, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    obrian's Boss Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Demaryius Thomas and Zac Stacy) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    obrian's Boss Team grabbed a sleeper in Markus Wheaton with pick No. 129.

Player Analysis

    • D. Thomas, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 9
    The Power of Persuasion

    Now would be a reasonable time for obrian's Boss Team to encourage the Yahoo Public 803059 League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Demaryius Thomas and his 106 projected catches (ranked second in the NFL).

    • Dez Bryant, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 12
    Haters Gonna Hate

    • Zac Stacy, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 29
    How Rebellious of You

    obrian's Boss Team said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Zac Stacy).

    • Toby Gerhart, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 32
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 288 touches, Toby Gerhart is projected to rank ninth in the NFL in that category. How touching, obrian's Boss Team.

    • M. Crabtree, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 49
    Rethinking That One

    While drafted 49th overall, Michael Crabtree isn't projected among the NFL's top-30 in either receiving TDs (35th with 5.9) or receiving yards (37th with 915).

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..."
