    Bobby's Team Draft Report Card

    A-
    Grade

    Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, Bobby's Team is Built to Win

    Draft Summary

    With the second overall pick, Bobby's Team put on a show for the competition. Drafting a complete team capable of winning week in and week out, they're projected to finish second in Yahoo Public 821267 League with a record of 10-4-0 (1,386 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Julio Jones (third round), Larry Fitzgerald (fourth round), and Wes Welker (fifth round). They built the top RB tandem in the league, as they added Jamaal Charles and Andre Ellington.

    With a draft like that, you might as well make it official. Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    Bobby'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. Looking at the season as a whole, they have an easier-than-average slate. Corresponding with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, Bobby's Team also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Close to the Vest

      Bobby's Team was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

    • Defense Wins Championships?

      Bobby's Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

    • Take One Play Off and He Burns You

      Pierre Thomas is always a threat to break off a long one, ranking fifth among NFL RBs in percentage of touches over 40 yards (1.1%).

    • A Versatile Combination

      Pierre Thomas can hurt opponents with his hands as well as his feet. He ranks fifth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 500.

    Player Analysis

      • Round 1, Pick 2

      • A. Ellington, RB
      • Round 2, Pick 19
      Throwing Caution to the Wind

      • Julio Jones, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 22
      Stolen In Broad Daylight

    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.
