    jonathan's Team Draft Report Card


    With a Projected Finish of Fifth, jonathan's Team Has Legit Shot at Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    jonathan's Team put together an underrated roster that might not dominate week in and week out, but will be firmly entrenched in a playoff spot by season's end. They're projected to finish the season with an 8-6-0 (1,350) record in Yahoo Public 803059 League, which will be good enough for fifth. They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Julio Jones (third round), Andre Johnson (fourth round), and Wes Welker (fifth round). They landed one of the most prolific QB tandems in the league, as they added Tony Romo and Andrew Luck.

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


    Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, jonathan's 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 a weaker-than-average schedule. In addition to having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, jonathan's Team has the softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Maybe You Should Add Tony Gonzalez While You're At It

      In Week 12, both Greg Olsen and Heath Miller will be on bye for jonathan's Team.

    • On Autopilot

      Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for jonathan's Team, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Wes Welker) and fourth-ranked (Riley Cooper) wideouts.

    • May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

      jonathan's Team might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Andrew Luck) and second-drafted QB (Tony Romo) have similar seasonal point projections.

    • Punting Your Kicking Stats in Week 10?

      jonathan's Team must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 10, both Stephen Gostkowski and Nick Novak will be on bye.

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

      jonathan's Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

    Player Analysis

      • LeSean McCoy, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 1
      Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. McCoy is projected to rank seventh in the league with 1,626 total yards.

      • G. Bernard, RB
      • Round 2, Pick 20
      Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

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

      • Julio Jones, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 21
      Better Lucky Than Good?

      The rest of Yahoo Public 803059 League overlooked a gem, and jonathan's Team made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Julio Jones.

      • Andre Johnson, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 40
      The Power of Persuasion

      Now would be a reasonable time for jonathan's Team to encourage the Yahoo Public 803059 League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Andre Johnson and his 87 projected catches (ranked ninth in the NFL).

      • Andrew Luck, QB
      • Round 6, Pick 60
      Was Andrew Luck Worth it at Pick No. 60?

      jonathan's Team sure hopes so. The Colts' signal-caller is projected to have 295 points this year, just a bit lower than his total from last season.

    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.
