    Projected to Finish Fifth, Angelina's Team Is Loaded with Talent

    Draft Summary

    Angelina's Team delivered a solid draft performance, taking the first overall draft slot and turning it into a team with playoff potential. With an expected record of 7-7-0 (1,359 points), they're projected to finish fifth in Yahoo Public 821267 League. They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Alshon Jeffery (third round), Pierre Garcon (fourth round), and Andre Johnson (fifth round). They landed the lowest-scoring TE pair in the league, as they have Greg Olsen and Tim Wright on their team.

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

    Schedule

    While Week 10 has the most players on bye for Angelina's Team (four), Week 7 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a softer-than-average slate. Angelina's Team has the opportunity to close with a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

    Draft Notes

    • Earning Your Paycheck

    • A Pair of Proven Winners

    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..."
