Trump16 received the sixth pick in the draft and used it to build a juggernaut. The majority of the league will spend the season looking up at Trump16 in the standings, as they are expected to finish third in Football Heads FB5 League with a record of 9-4-0 (1,469 points). With their first five picks, Trump16 aimed for balance, selecting QB Andrew Luck (19th overall), RBs Mark Ingram (30th) and Jonathan Stewart (43rd), and WRs Dez Bryant (6th) and DeSean Jackson (54th). They ended up with one of the best groups of WRs in the league, as they have Bryant, Jackson, Rueben Randle, and Larry Fitzgerald for their rotation.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Trump16 has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the entire season, they have a harder-than-average slate. Along with having the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Trump16 has the toughest first four games of the season.
Trump16 has four stronger-than-average positions with WR and QB projected to lead the way.
Trump16 elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
Trump16 nabbed a sleeper in Vernon Davis with pick No. 163.
Danny Woodhead is owned in only 9% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward Trump16 for their faith! Or not.
He Can Catch, Too
Danny Woodhead is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks third among RBs with 526 projected receiving yards.
The Power of Persuasion
- Dez Bryant, WR
- Round 1, Pick 6
Now would be a reasonable time for Trump16 to encourage the Football Heads FB5 League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Dez Bryant and his 87 projected catches (ranked 10th in the NFL).
Trump16 is No Photographer
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 2, Pick 19
But they can picture a fantasy championship with Andrew Luck projected to put up 341 points this year.
If it Ain't Broke
- Mark Ingram, RB
- Round 3, Pick 30
Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Trump16 didn't grab their first RB (Mark Ingram) until the third round.
- J. Stewart, RB
- Round 4, Pick 43
With their fourth-round pick, Trump16 pulled the trigger. They drafted Jonathan Stewart at pick number 43 despite an ADP of just 78.1 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Was Rashad Jennings Worth it at Pick No. 67?
- R. Jennings, RB
- Round 6, Pick 67
Trump16 sure hopes so. The Giants' running back is projected to earn 132 points this year, after putting up 108 last year.
Trump16 is projected to have a pair of below-average positions (TE and K), but TE is clearly their weakest unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.
- Larry Donnell
- Rank 153, ADP 132
- Charles Clay
- Rank 171, ADP 126
- Coby Fleener
- Rank 174, ADP 122
- Heath Miller
- Rank 195, ADP 123

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.
