"With the third pick in the draft, Dunedin Dreadfuls 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), Dunedin Dreadfuls is expected to struggle, finishing ninth in Yahoo Public 821367 League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,341 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Alshon Jeffery (third round), Andre Johnson (fourth round), and Percy Harvin (fifth round). They ended up with the highest-scoring RB duo in the league, as they have Adrian Peterson and Le'Veon Bell on the team.
Dunedin Dreadfuls should drop off the grid during Week 10. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a weaker-than-average slate. Along with having the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Dunedin Dreadfuls also has the easiest first four games of the season.
Dunedin Dreadfuls elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
Don't Get Defensive Over This
But Dunedin Dreadfuls drafted Chicago with the 83rd pick, even though their ADP is only 121.6 across all Yahoo! leagues.
This Mr. Irrelevant gets No Parade
In terms of projected points, the choice of Indianapolis was the weakest pick of the final round. You had one last chance and you blew it, Dunedin Dreadfuls.
Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Fajitas?
- A. Peterson, RB
- Round 1, Pick 3
Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Peterson is projected to rank fifth in the league with 1,641 total yards.
- Le'Veon Bell, RB
- Round 2, Pick 18
Dunedin Dreadfuls stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Adrian Peterson and Le'Veon Bell before targeting other positions.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Alshon Jeffery, WR
- Round 3, Pick 23
Alshon Jeffery was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
The Power of Persuasion
- Andre Johnson, WR
- Round 4, Pick 38
Now would be a reasonable time for Dunedin Dreadfuls to encourage the Yahoo Public 821367 League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Andre Johnson and his 87 projected catches (ranked eighth in the NFL).
Returning to Greatness
- Percy Harvin, WR
- Round 5, Pick 43
If special teams contributions count in Yahoo Public 821367 League, Dunedin Dreadfuls may have found a gem in Percy Harvin. Including his 788 projected return yards, he ranks third in the league with 1,708 all-purpose yards.
Dunedin Dreadfuls has three positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including TE and DEF, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Coby Fleener
- Rank 179, ADP 137
- Owen Daniels
- Rank 182, ADP 123
- New York Defanse
- Rank 242, ADP 125
- Miami Defanse
- Rank 244, ADP 126

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.
