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

    Draft Summary

    Maybe if kevin'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 859797 with a record of 6-8-0 (1,323 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), Brandon Marshall (second round), and Randall Cobb (fourth round). If these players can play up to expectations, kevin's Team can have some success. They are the best group of WRs in the league.

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

    Schedule

    kevin's Team should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why Greenland is ice and Iceland is green? It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the hardest slate. Corresponding with the most grueling overall schedule, kevin's Team also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Doing It By Committee

      By picking up a pair of Detroit Lions RBs in the middle rounds of the draft (Reggie Bush and Joique Bell), kevin's Team will be hoping there are enough fantasy points to go around in that backfield.

    • Stockpiling Talent at WR

      kevin's Team should be in good shape with three position groups projected to be better-than-average. WR is definitely the strongest among them.

    • Next Year, Just Show Up On Time

      The coach of kevin's Team must have arrived late to the draft party. After picking up the fewest projected points in the league over the draft's first half, they accumulated the most during the second half.

    • Risk Averse

      kevin's Team minimized risk by choosing six consistent players among their 15 picks.

    • Officially Mediocre

      While the bottom half of the kevin's 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. 10).

    • Starting Slowly

      kevin's Team got off to a sluggish start, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.

    Player Analysis

      • Dez Bryant, WR
      • Round 1, Pick 9
      Does Dez Bryant Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Bryant is projected to rank 10th in the league with 1,457 all-purpose yards.

      • B. Marshall, WR
      • Round 2, Pick 12
      The Power of Persuasion

      Now would be a reasonable time for kevin's Team to encourage the Yahoo Public 859797 League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Brandon Marshall and his 93 projected catches (ranked fifth in the NFL).

      • Toby Gerhart, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 29
      How Rebellious of You

      kevin's Team said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Toby Gerhart).

      • Randall Cobb, WR
      • Round 4, Pick 32
      162 Excuses to Cheer for Randall Cobb

      Cobb ranks 10th in the Yahoo Public 859797 League among wideouts with 162 projected fantasy points.

      • Reggie Bush, RB
      • Round 5, Pick 49
      Let Me Check it Again

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

    Best Available

    With three subpar positions on kevin's Team, RB and TE are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

      • Carlos Hyde
      • Rank 80, ADP 117
      • Ray Rice
      • Rank 81, ADP 101
      • Coby Fleener
      • Rank 179, ADP 137

    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..."
