PengStaR got saddled with a late draft position (seventh overall) and didn't respond. The poor draft slot will have to serve as the excuse as to why they are projected to land in eighth place in Yahoo Public 803059 League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,286 points). With their first five picks, PengStaR focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (14th overall), RBs Marshawn Lynch (7th) and C.J. Spiller (27th), and WRs Victor Cruz (34th) and DeSean Jackson (47th). They ended up with the bottom group of WRs in the league, as they added Cruz, Jackson, Marques Colston, and Reggie Wayne.
PengStaR should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why Greenland is ice and Iceland is green? It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-difficult-than-average schedule. Along with the third-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for PengStaR.
PengStaR got off to a sluggish start, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.
Defense Wins Championships?
PengStaR chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
PengStaR nabbed a sleeper in Kelvin Benjamin with pick No. 127.
The Heist Is On
The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, PengStaR got a steal in snatching Bishop Sankey in the ninth round (87th overall pick vs. ADP of 71).
Russell Wilson can deliver fantasy glory to PengStaR with his arm and his legs. Wilson has 482 projected rushing yards, and ranks fourth among QBs in that category.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Marshawn Lynch, RB
- Round 1, Pick 7
Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Marshawn Lynch had less value than any other pick of the round.
Is Aaron Rodgers Religious?
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 2, Pick 14
With 325 projected points, PengStaR will be hoping Rodgers is the answer to their prayers.
The Power of Persuasion
- Victor Cruz, WR
- Round 4, Pick 34
Now would be a reasonable time for PengStaR to encourage the Yahoo Public 803059 League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Victor Cruz and his 88 projected catches (ranked seventh in the NFL).
Was Vernon Davis Worth Pick No. 54?
- Vernon Davis, TE
- Round 6, Pick 54
PengStaR apparently thinks so. The 49ers' TE is only predicted to have 102 points this year, after producing 161 last season.
Was Marques Colston the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 67?
- M. Colston, WR
- Round 7, Pick 67
PengStaR apparently thinks so. The Saints' wideout is projected to put up 139 points this year, after getting 124 last year.
While PengStaR is expected to be weak across three positions, TE is definitely their worst unit and an area of need.
- Garrett Graham
- Rank 154, ADP 138
- Tim Wright
- Rank 169, ADP 139
- Coby Fleener
- Rank 172, ADP 138
- Dwayne Allen
- Rank 175, ADP 135

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..."
