goodmans's Team Draft Report Card


Loaded With Eagles, goodmans's Team Will Battle Every Week

Draft Summary

When a bottom-half draft slot yields top-half results, that's the sign of a strong effort by the GM. Such was the case with goodmans's Team, which flipped its ninth overall pick into a projected fifth-place finish in Yahoo Public 851588 League (7-7-0, 1,502 points). They went with the SMU "Pony Express" draft strategy, loading up on three tailbacks in the first five rounds, selecting DeMarco Murray (second round), Lamar Miller (third round), and Ameer Abdullah (fifth round). They landed one of the bottom tandems of QBs in the league, as they have Ryan Tannehill and Sam Bradford on the roster.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Week 8 would be a good opportunity for goodmans's Team to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. In addition to having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, goodmans's Team also has the easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Lots of Brotherly Love

    The fantasy hopes of goodmans's Team rely heavily on the fortunes of Philly's offense, as they have four Eagles on their roster.

  • Show Some ID

    goodmans's Team isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 4.5 years of NFL experience.

  • Team of Champions?

    goodmans's Team is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: DeMarco Murray, Jeremy Maclin, and Arian Foster.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    goodmans's Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    goodmans's Team grabbed a sleeper in DeVante Parker with pick No. 149.

  • Single Serving

    Going with just a single TE (Austin Seferian-Jenkins) and K (Matt Bryant), goodmans's Team opted to add depth at other positions.

Player Analysis

    • Round 1, Pick 9
    goodmans's Team Says 'Hello' to Julio

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..."
