    Coinciding with Some Early-Round Reaches, jacob's Team Is Going to Have a Rough Season

    Draft Summary

    If jacob's Team handles adversity during the season the way they did in this draft, it's going to be a long year. After receiving the ninth overall pick they were clearly rattled, which was made evident by their draft performance. As a result, they are projected to finish eighth in Yahoo Public 821267 League with a record of 5-9-0 (1,274 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on A.J. Green (second round), Randall Cobb (fourth round), and Julian Edelman (fifth round). They have one of the bottom tandems of QBs in the league, as they added Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson.

    Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    jacob's Team should just disappear for a while during Week 4. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the toughest schedule. Along with having the most taxing overall schedule, jacob's Team also has the league's toughest first four games and second-most difficult last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • WR or Bust

      Unfortunately, WR is the only strong position on jacob's Team. Fortunately, there's always next year.

    • Up and Comers

      Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and jacob's Team may have done just that, with five players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.

    • QB Controversy?

      The coach of jacob's Team might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted QB (Colin Kaepernick) and second-drafted QB (Russell Wilson) have very similar seasonal point projections.

    • Get Off My Lawn

      With an average of 7 years of NFL experience, jacob's Team is the oldest and by default, least exciting team in the league.

    • San Francisco 49ers Fan?

      jacob's Team reached twice to draft a San Francisco 49ers player.

    • Veteran Mentors on the Bench

      While the top half of the roster (from a projected points perspective) is relatively young (ranked No. 9 in the league with an average of 5.9 years of NFL experience), the bench is quite experienced (ranked No. 1 with 8.5 years).

    Player Analysis

      • Marshawn Lynch, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 9
      Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

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

      • A.J. Green, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 12
      181 Excuses to Cheer for A.J. Green

      Green ranks sixth in the Yahoo Public 821267 League among wideouts with 181 projected fantasy points.

      • Randall Cobb, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 32
      Stolen In Broad Daylight

      Randall Cobb was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

      • Julian Edelman, WR
      • Round 5, Pick 49
      Rethinking That One

      While drafted 49th overall, Julian Edelman isn't projected among the NFL's top-20 in either receiving TDs (30th with 6.1) or receiving yards (25th with 1,015).

      • Frank Gore, RB
      • Round 6, Pick 52
      Was Frank Gore the Best Choice at Pick No. 52?

      jacob's Team apparently thinks so. The 49ers' RB is projected to get 159 points this year, after producing 175 last season.

    Best Available

    With four subpar positions on jacob's Team, DEF and RB are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

      • Tampa Bay Defanse
      • Rank 239, ADP 141
      • New York Defanse
      • Rank 240, ADP 123
      • Terrance West
      • Rank 85, ADP 119
      • Fred Jackson
      • Rank 97, ADP 117

    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..."
