    Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, gabbie's Team Has an Average Squad

    Draft Summary

    Maybe if gabbie's Team purchases a lift kit and some giant tires for this roster it won't seem so average. The playoffs are not out of reach for this team, but it will require some effort. They are projected to finish seventh in Yahoo Public 853570 with a record of 5-9-0 (1,305 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Dez Bryant (first round), Randall Cobb (fourth round), and DeSean Jackson (fifth round). They landed the lowest-scoring QB tandem in the league, as they have Tony Romo and Josh McCown on the roster.

    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 waiver-wire magic from gabbie's Team, as their top two projected scorers (Tony Romo and Dez Bryant) will be off that weekend. Looking at the entire season, they have a harder-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for gabbie's Team.

    Player Analysis

      • Dez Bryant, WR
      • Round 1, Pick 9
      It's Normal to Have Those Feelings at Your Age

      • Marshawn Lynch, RB
      • Round 2, Pick 12
      Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

      Get on up, it's Marshawn Lynch time! He should run cool this season with 199 projected points.

      • Randall Cobb, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 32
      162 More Reasons to Appreciate Randall Cobb

    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..."
