    Projected to Finish 10th, Dani's Dandy Team Should Have Attempted to Draft Players That are Good

    Draft Summary

    For many, the last pick in a snake draft is a coveted position, offering the opportunity to draft two players back-to-back. For Dani's Dandy Team, it's an opportunity to blame this giant mess of a roster on picking last. Projected to finish 10th in Yahoo Public 853570 League, this gem of a roster is expected to go 3-11-0 (1,216 points). With five WRs on the roster, Dani's Dandy Team guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 141, their WRs projected average of 140 points this season is not much different than the rest of the wideout groups in the league. They have one of the worst groups of RBs in the league, as they added Montee Ball, Ryan Mathews, and Reggie Bush.

    Brutal draft. Still, you should nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame. That way, your players will have to live up to the pressure.

    Schedule

    Dani's Dandy Team can chalk up Week 4 as a loss. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the most challenging schedule. Corresponding with the most demanding overall schedule, Dani's Dandy Team also has the league's toughest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • I Keep Getting Older

      And they stay the same age. Dani's Dandy Team isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 3.7 years of NFL experience.

    • Checked Out Early

      Dani's Dandy Team didn't exactly wrap up the draft on a high note, ending up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

    • Defense Wins Championships?

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

    • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

      Dani's Dandy Team grabbed a sleeper in Kelvin Benjamin with pick No. 130.

    • A Versatile Combination

      Reggie Bush can hurt opponents with his hands as well as his feet. He ranks fourth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 513.

    • Basic Math is Optional

      Michael Vick once claimed "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 482 projected rushing yards, Russell Wilson can channel his inner Vick to help Dani's Dandy Team this year.

    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..."
