    With a Projected Finish of Ninth, Lon's Legit Team Should Have Attempted to Draft Players That are Good

    Draft Summary

    Is someone going to put out that dumpster fire? Oh, whoops, that's not a dumpster fire that's the Lon's Legit Team roster. Easy mistake with a team that needs this much work. As the roster stands, Lon's Legit Team is projected to finish ninth in Yahoo Public 853570 League with a record of 3-11-0 (1,301 points). With their first five picks, Lon's Legit Team aimed for balance, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (24th overall), RBs Matt Forte (4th) and Giovani Bernard (17th), and WRs Roddy White (37th) and Percy Harvin (44th). They built one of the worst groups of WRs in the league, as they have White, T.Y. Hilton, Eric Decker, and Harvin on their team.

    Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    Week 9 might require some artful managing from Lon's Legit Team. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. In addition to having the third-most grueling overall schedule, Lon's Legit Team also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Good Luck With That One!

      Lon's Legit Team will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Eric Decker), fourth- (Percy Harvin), and fifth-ranked (Dwayne Bowe) wideouts.

    • The Sky's the Limit

      With five players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Lon's Legit Team hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

    • Great Idea, Poor Execution

      Lon's Legit Team must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 10, both Stephen Gostkowski and Blair Walsh will be on bye.

    • Officially Mediocre

      While the bottom half of the Lon's Legit Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).

    • It's How You Finish

      Lon's Legit Team made every other squad look silly after some amazing halftime adjustments, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

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

    Player Analysis

      • Matt Forte, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 4
      Does Matt Forte Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Forte is projected to rank third in the league with 1,701 all-purpose yards.

      • G. Bernard, RB
      • Round 2, Pick 17
      Rethinking That One?

      Despite being an above-average player at his position, Giovani Bernard was the weakest value pick of the round.

      • Aaron Rodgers, QB
      • Round 3, Pick 24
      A Super Duper Signal-Caller

      Aaron Rodgers is projected to rack up 325 points this year, enough to rank third among all QBs.

      • Percy Harvin, WR
      • Round 5, Pick 44
      Returning to Greatness

      If special teams contributions count in Yahoo Public 853570 League, Lon's Legit Team may have found a gem in Percy Harvin. Including his 766 projected return yards, he ranks fifth in the league with 1,686 all-purpose yards.

      • T.Y. Hilton, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 57
      Was T.Y. Hilton the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 57?

      Lon's Legit Team apparently thinks so. The Colts' wideout is projected to have 138 points this year, just a bit lower than his total from last 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.
