Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, 7th Floor Crew Embarrassed Themselves

Draft Summary

Is someone going to put out that dumpster fire? Oh, whoops, that's not a dumpster fire that's the 7th Floor Crew roster. Easy mistake with a team that needs this much work. As the roster stands, 7th Floor Crew is projected to finish eighth in LiAus League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,286 points). They obviously understand how important the running back position is in fantasy football. They used three of their first five picks on RBs DeMarco Murray (third round), Frank Gore (fourth round), and Chris Johnson (fifth round). They ended up with the best group of WRs in the league, as they added Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Percy Harvin, and Hakeem Nicks.

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

Keeper Summary

7th Floor Crew took advantage of their only keeper position to hold on to Percy Harvin (43.9 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is less valuable than a first-round draft pick.

Schedule

Week 9 won't be their favorite week playing fantasy football, as 7th Floor Crew has their top two projected scorers (Matt Ryan and Calvin Johnson) will be on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the toughest schedules. Along with having the second-most demanding overall schedule, 7th Floor Crew also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • A Pair of Strengths

    7th Floor Crew has two positional units projected to be better than the league average, RB and QB.

  • On Autopilot

    Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for 7th Floor Crew, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Percy Harvin) and fourth-ranked (Hakeem Nicks) wideouts.

  • San Francisco 49ers Fan?

    7th Floor Crew is a believer in the hopes of the San Francisco 49ers this season, grabbing a couple of players on that team sooner than their ADPs might suggest.

  • A Dominating Duo

    7th Floor Crew has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Calvin Johnson and DeMarco Murray) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in LiAus League, 7th Floor Crew 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.

  • 7th Floor Crew Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Denarius Moore at pick 136 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Moore is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Calvin Johnson, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Meeting His Expectations

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

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 16
    Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law

    Brandon Marshall is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 93 projected catches rank fifth in the league.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 25
    How Rebellious of You

    7th Floor Crew said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (DeMarco Murray).

    • Frank Gore, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 36
    Finding Paydirt

    With 8.6 rushing TDs, Frank Gore is projected to finish seventh in the NFL in that category.

    • Shane Vereen, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 56
    He Can Catch, Too

    Shane Vereen is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks first among RBs in projected receiving yards with 639.

Best Available

While 7th Floor Crew is projected to have four below-average positions, TE is clearly their weakest unit and should be upgraded first.

    • Ladarius Green
    • Rank 133, ADP 129
    • Tyler Eifert
    • Rank 137, ADP 133
    • Delanie Walker
    • Rank 148, ADP 134

    • Rank 160, ADP 134

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..."
