BG Extreme Draft Report Card


Coinciding with Some Early-Round Reaches, BG Extreme Can Make the Playoffs if They Just Replace Most of the Team

Draft Summary

Picking 12th, BG Extreme built a team that probably isn't even worth talking about. It wouldn't be fair to give the good teams a recap and not the bad ones, though, so here goes. They are expected to finish 10th in Password is Taco League with a record of 5-9-0 (1,523 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Drew Brees (12th overall), RBs Matt Forte (13th) and Alfred Morris (37th), and WRs Andre Johnson (36th) and Larry Fitzgerald (60th). They landed one of the most prolific QB combos in the league, as they have Brees and Philip Rivers on the roster.

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


BG Extreme should pick up a new hobby, like bird watching, during Week 10. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. BG Extreme has the opportunity to come out firing, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • Doing It By Committee

    Here's hoping that there are enough balls to go around for the Arizona Cardinals, as BG Extreme scooped up a couple of their WRs in the middle of the draft (Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown).

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With six "low-risk" players among their 15 picks, BG Extreme is looking for dependable help.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the BG Extreme roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 2). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 11).

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

    BG Extreme knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    BG Extreme nabbed a sleeper in Dustin Hopkins with pick No. 180.

  • Take One Play Off and He Burns You

    Terrance Williams is a classic deep-ball weapon, ranking fourth among NFL WRs in percentage of receptions over 40 yards (7.4%).

Player Analysis

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 12

    BG Extreme drafted the most explosive QB in the league in Drew Brees. He's projected to drop bombs on DBs this year, to lead NFL QBs in plays over 40 yards with 13.3 and TDs over 40 yards with 5.1.

    • Matt Forte, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    Feed Thy Beast

    Matt Forte will get the ball early and often, projected to finish seventh in the league with 306 touches.

    • Andre Johnson, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 36
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Andre Johnson had less value than any other pick of the round.

    • L. Fitzgerald, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 60
    It Was a Learning Experience

    Hey, remember that time BG Extreme took Larry Fitzgerald WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Fitzgerald was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • Mason Crosby, K
    • Round 6, Pick 61
    Taking a Chance

    With their sixth-round pick, BG Extreme threw caution to the wind. They took Mason Crosby at pick number 61 despite an ADP of 101.8 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Best Available

With three subpar positions on BG Extreme, WR and TE are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.

    • Stevie Johnson
    • Rank 112, ADP 129
    • Brian Quick
    • Rank 116, ADP 130
    • Ladarius Green

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..."
