    Projected to Finish Fifth, Carpet Munchers Has Look of a Playoff Team

    Draft Summary

    Putting together a playoff-caliber roster, Carpet Munchers didn't break any records with this draft, but they put together a quality team that will be tough to match up against. Looking at their schedule, they figure to reach the playoffs with a 8-6-0 (1,352) record and fifth-place finish in Yahoo Public 875884 League. They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (20th overall), RB Adrian Peterson (1st), WR Wes Welker (40th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (41st) within the first five rounds. They put together the worst group of WRs in the league, as they have Welker, Sammy Watkins, Brian Hartline, and Stevie Johnson for their rotation.

    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 Carpet Munchers (five), Week 10 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Looking at the entire season, they have the least challenging slate. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, Carpet Munchers also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • On Autopilot

      Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for Carpet Munchers, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Brian Hartline) and fourth-ranked (Stevie Johnson) wideouts.

    • Positional Fortitude

      Carpet Munchers has five positions that are stronger than league average. While DEF, RB, and QB are projected to be good, TE is the best on Carpet Munchers.

    • Going Out with a Whimper

      Carpet Munchers didn't end the night the way they might have liked, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

    • Big D

      Carpet Munchers elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

    • Carpet Munchers Went All YOLO Here

      Grabbing Scott Chandler at pick 101 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Chandler is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Mr. Irrelevant

      In terms of projected points, the choice of Josh Gordon with the 141st pick gave Carpet Munchers the worst pick of the final round. This Mr. Irrelevant gets no parade, unfortunately.

    Player Analysis

      • A. Peterson, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 1
      Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Fajitas?

      Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Peterson is projected to rank fifth in the league with 1,641 total yards.

      • Aaron Rodgers, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 20
      Carpet Munchers's Stud Signal-Caller

      Aaron Rodgers is projected to rack up 325 points this year, enough to rank third among all QBs.

      • Arian Foster, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 21
      Is His Jersey Made of Honey?

      Because the projections for Arian Foster are sweet. He's projected to be the eighth-best RB in the league this season.

      • Rob Gronkowski, TE
      • Round 5, Pick 41
      Haters Gonna Hate

      The rest of Yahoo Public 875884 League overlooked a gem, and Carpet Munchers made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Rob Gronkowski.

      • Sammy Watkins, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 60
      It Was a Learning Experience

      Hey, remember that time Carpet Munchers took Sammy Watkins WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Watkins was the weakest value pick of the round.

    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..."
