    Projected to Finish Sixth, DJ's Definitive Team Is Good Enough to Barely Miss Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    Look DJ's Definitive Team, not everyone achieves the "above" in "above average," it has to be earned. Just be happy being an average GM, and maybe with a little hard work and a better draft next season, your team will reach that milestone. DJ's Definitive Team didn't kill their playoff aspirations with this draft, but they'll have to do some extra work to get there. For now, they're projected to finish in sixth-place in Yahoo Public 821267 League at 6-8-0 (1,299 points). With five WRs on the roster, DJ's Definitive Team might have more quantity than quality at that spot; their WRs are projected to average 125 points this season, fewer than the league average of 142. They built the most prolific TE duo in the league, as they added Jimmy Graham and Ladarius Green.

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

    Schedule

    Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, DJ's Definitive 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. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the easiest schedules. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, DJ's Definitive Team also has the softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Earning Your Paycheck

    • Show Some ID

      DJ's Definitive Team isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 4.8 years of NFL experience.

    • Fantasy Fútbol

      This is the American version, folks. DJ's Definitive Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.

    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..."
