    Coinciding with Some Early-Round Reaches, jeremy's Team Threw the Draft on Purpose?

    Draft Summary

    "With the fifth pick in the draft, jeremy'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 (fifth), jeremy's Team is expected to struggle, finishing 10th in Yahoo Public 821267 League with a record of 2-12-0 (1,297 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Drew Brees (16th overall), RB Bishop Sankey (36th), WR Calvin Johnson (5th), and TE Julius Thomas (25th) within the first five rounds. They built the lowest-scoring group of RBs in the league, as they added Chris Johnson, Sankey, and Ben Tate.

    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, jeremy's 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 hardest slates. Along with having the second-most demanding overall schedule, jeremy's Team has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Shouldering the Burden

      jeremy's Team has five above-average positions with QB and DEF projected to lead the way.

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

      jeremy's Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

    • Team of Champions

      jeremy's Team is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams, including Calvin Johnson, Drew Brees, and Julius Thomas.

    • Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up

      jeremy's Team got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.

    Player Analysis

      • Calvin Johnson, WR
      • Round 1, Pick 5
      The Standard by Which All Others are Measured

      Often the lone wideout taken in the first round in 2013, Megatron lived up to the expectations and was owned on more playoff teams across Yahoo! than any other WR.

      • Drew Brees, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 16
      Like a Prancing Unicorn

      Drew Brees is a fantasy dream. He's projected to finish second in the NFL in both passing TDs (37.9) and passing yards (5,106).

      • Julius Thomas, TE
      • Round 3, Pick 25
      A Sizable Target in the Red Zone

      With 8 projected TD catches, Julius Thomas ranks third in the NFL among TEs in that category.

      • Bishop Sankey, RB
      • Round 4, Pick 36
      How Rebellious of You

      jeremy's Team said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (Bishop Sankey).

      • Chris Johnson, RB
      • Round 6, Pick 56
      Was Chris Johnson Worth it at Pick No. 56?

    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..."
