    Dunedin Dreadfuls Draft Report Card


    With a Projected Finish of Ninth, Dunedin Dreadfuls Will Be Alone at the Bottom

    Draft Summary

    "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.

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


    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.

    Draft Notes

    • Big D

      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.

    Player Analysis

      • A. Peterson, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 3
      Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Fajitas?

      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
      Old Fashioned

      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.

      • Alshon Jeffery, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 23
      Stolen In Broad Daylight

      Alshon Jeffery was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

      • Andre Johnson, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 38
      The Power of Persuasion

      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).

      • Percy Harvin, WR
      • Round 5, Pick 43
      Returning to Greatness

      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.

    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..."
