With a Projected Finish of Third, Eric's Team Is Loaded with Talent

Draft Summary

Picking late (sixth overall), Eric's Team did what they could with what they were given. While this team isn't a juggernaut by any means, it's a team capable of reaching the playoffs if the chips fall their way. They are expected to finish third in Yahoo Public 821267 with a record of 10-4-0 (1,342 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Antonio Brown (third round), Victor Cruz (fourth round), and Percy Harvin (fifth round). They put together a better-than-average group of RBs, as they have Eddie Lacy, Arian Foster, and Lamar Miller to lead the way.

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

Schedule

While Week 12 has the most players on bye for Eric's Team (three), Week 9 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a harder-than-average schedule. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Eric's Team.

Draft Notes

  • On the Rise

    Eric's Team hopes to break through this season, led by six players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.

  • Big D

  • A Dominating Duo

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..."
