Projected to Finish Eighth, Claire's Choice Team Failed Big Time

Draft Summary

If Claire's Choice Team handles adversity during the season the way they did in this draft, it's going to be a long year. After receiving the 10th overall pick they were clearly rattled, which was made evident by their draft performance. As a result, they are projected to finish eighth in Yahoo Public 859797 League with a record of 5-9-0 (1,346 points). With five WRs on the roster, Claire's Choice Team might have more quantity than quality at that spot; their WRs are projected to average 121 points this season, fewer than the league average of 139. They ended up with one of the worst groups of RBs in the league, as they added Marshawn Lynch, Doug Martin and Bishop Sankey to their roster.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

While Week 4 has the most players on bye for Claire's Choice Team (five), Week 9 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a more-challenging-than-average schedule. In addition to having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, Claire's Choice Team also has the toughest first four games of the season.

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..."
