    ridinallseason Draft Report Card


    After Some Early Gambles, gabriel's Team Isn't Going to Win Much

    Draft Summary

    "With the third pick in the draft, gabriel's Team selects: Tim Tebow." OK maybe it wasn't that bad, but it might as well have been. Despite being gifted a favorable draft position (third), gabriel's Team is expected to struggle, finishing ninth in Yahoo Public 821267 League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,277 points). They loaded up on wide receivers, but didn't take the right ones. Their WRs are projected to average 127 points this season, fewer than the league average of 142. They landed the most prolific QB tandem in the league, as they added Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton.

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


    Week 9 might require some artful managing from gabriel's Team. They have seven players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for gabriel's Team.

    Draft Notes

    • Earning Your Paycheck

    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.
