Emmy's Team Draft Report Card


Coinciding with Some Early-Round Reaches, Emmy's Team Isn't Going to Win Much

Draft Summary

Emmy's Team wasn't able to overcome a poor draft position (sixth overall), and that will have to serve as the excuse as to why they are projected to land in 10th place in Suicide Squad League. With the roster as is, they are expected to finish 1-12-0 (1,384 points). They made it a point of focus to load up on pass-catchers, using four of their first seven selections to snag WRs Eric Decker (third round), Brandin Cooks (fourth round), Golden Tate (sixth round), and Terrelle Pryor (seventh round). They landed the bottom QB pair in the league, as they have Eli Manning and Jameis Winston on the roster.

Yikes. At least it can't get any worse. In fact, if you nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame, you'll be an official nominee. Feel better?


Week 11 might require some artful managing from Emmy's Team. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have the most challenging schedule. Along with the most taxing overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Emmy's Team.

Draft Notes

  • Not Focused on Offense

    DEF is the only above-average position on Emmy's Team.

  • The Best Player Plays

    Emmy's Team is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 5 years of NFL experience.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Emmy's Team will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 9, as their only K (Steven Hauschka) and only DEF (Houston) will both be on bye that week.

  • Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up

    Emmy's Team got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • Super Sleepers

    At picks No. 126 and 146, Emmy's Team snagged a couple of late-round fliers with upside in Jameis Winston and Devonta Freeman.

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, Emmy's Team chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

Player Analysis

    • Eli Manning, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls

    By taking Eli Manning with the sixth overall pick, Emmy's Team should have shown more patience. According to the signal-caller's ADP of only 71.2 across all Yahoo! leagues, he could've been chosen later. TLC would disapprove.

    • Carlos Hyde, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    Maybe Hyde Will Surprise

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

    • Golden Tate, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 55
    Let Me Check it Again

    Why can't I find Golden Tate on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round flier."

    • Terrelle Pryor, QB
    • Round 7, Pick 66
    A Stretch of the Imagination

    Grabbing Terrelle Pryor at pick 66 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Pryor is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Best Available

Emmy's Team has five positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including QB and TE, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Colin Kaepernick
    • Rank 108, ADP 123
    • Carson Palmer
    • Rank 114, ADP 128
    • Dwayne Allen
    • Rank 143, ADP 128
    • Josh Hill
    • Rank 147, ADP 132
  • Bye Week Points Lost

    Each bar represents the total projected season points for each player that's on bye that week. This chart shows any potential bye week issues.

  • Pick Number Minus ADP
    Pick Number

    Bars above zero indicate a pick was selected later than a player's ADP. Bars below zero show players that were taken earlier than their ADP.

  • Avg Points by Position vs League
        Team     League

  • Schedule by Opponent Points

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..."
