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.
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.
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.
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).
Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls
- Eli Manning, QB
- Round 1, Pick 6
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.
Maybe Hyde Will Surprise
- Carlos Hyde, RB
- Round 2, Pick 15
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Carlos Hyde was the weakest value pick of the round.
Let Me Check it Again
- Golden Tate, WR
- Round 6, Pick 55
Why can't I find Golden Tate on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round flier."
A Stretch of the Imagination
- Terrelle Pryor, QB
- Round 7, Pick 66
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.
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

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..."
