    emmanuel's Team Draft Report Card

    Grade

    Led by an Elite Group of RBs, emmanuel's Team Is a Team to Keep an Eye On

    Draft Summary

    emmanuel's Team took a high draft pick and turned it into a playoff-caliber squad with a projected record of 7-7-0 (1,320). They should be able to roll through most of Yahoo Public 828456 League on their way to a projected fifth-place finish. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Aaron Rodgers (22nd overall), RBs Jamaal Charles (2nd) and Andre Ellington (19th), and WRs Roddy White (39th) and Pierre Garcon (42nd). They ended up with the highest-scoring group of RBs in the league, as they added Charles, Ellington, and Stevan Ridley.

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

    Schedule

    Week 10 might not be the highest scoring week for emmanuel's Team, as their top two projected scorers (Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler) will be relaxing at home that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for emmanuel's Team.

    Draft Notes

    • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

      It's likely that in Week 9, emmanuel's Team will either be scraping the wire or begging for a trade (Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler will both be on bye). You can give Favre a call, but texting him isn't recommended.

    • On the Rise

      emmanuel's Team hopes to break through this season, led by five players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.

    • Aging Stars

      The top half of the roster (from a projected points perspective) is relatively old (ranked No. 2 in the league with an average of 7.6 years of NFL experience), whereas the bottom half is fairly young (ranked No. 10 with 4.3 years).

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

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

    • Don't Get Too Defensive Over This

      But emmanuel's Team drafted Denver with the 82nd pick, even though their ADP is only 98.3 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Mr. Relevant

      emmanuel's Team scored the best value pick of the final round, drafting Dan Carpenter at pick number 142.

    Player Analysis

      • Jamaal Charles, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 2
      Does Jamaal Charles Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Charles is projected to rank second in the league with 1,723 total yards.

      • A. Ellington, RB
      • Round 2, Pick 19
      Old Fashioned

      emmanuel's Team stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Jamaal Charles and Andre Ellington before targeting other positions.

      • Aaron Rodgers, QB
      • Round 3, Pick 22
      Do You Know if Aaron Rodgers is Religious?

      With 325 projected points, emmanuel's Team is hoping Rodgers will be the answer to their prayers.

      • T.Y. Hilton, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 59
      Was T.Y. Hilton Worth it at Pick No. 59?

      emmanuel's Team sure hopes so. The Colts' WR is projected to have 138 points this year, almost the same as his total from last season.

      • Kyle Rudolph, TE
      • Round 7, Pick 62
      Was Kyle Rudolph Worth Pick No. 62?

      emmanuel's Team apparently thinks so. The Vikings' TE is projected to put up 100 points this year, after only netting 49 last season.

    Best Available

    While emmanuel's Team is expected to be weak across three positions, TE is definitely their worst unit and an area of need.

      • Rank 179, ADP 138
      • Owen Daniels
      • Rank 182, ADP 122
      • Jermichael Finley

    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..."
