Led by a Stellar WR Corps, Nick P's Nice Team Expects to Factor Heavily Into Playoff Picture

Draft Summary

Nick P's Nice Team took a high draft pick and turned it into a playoff-caliber squad with a projected record of 9-5-0 (1,589). They should be able to roll through most of Yahoo Public 866294 League on their way to a projected third-place finish. They won't have any issues with depth at WR, using their first three picks to load up, drafting Julio Jones, Brandin Cooks, and Mike Evans. Nick P's Nice Team will rely heavily on this group, as they are one of the highest-scoring groups of WRs in the league.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Week 5 is not looking like a fun one for fantasy football. Nick P's Nice Team should look into the joys of scrapbooking, or bird-watching, or just anything that isn't fantasy football. It might not be pretty. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a weaker-than-average slate. Nick P's Nice Team has the opportunity to close with a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

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.
