    With a Projected Finish of Fourth, Tony's Terrific Team Can Compete With Anyone

    Draft Summary

    Tony's Terrific Team figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the sixth overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 8-6-0 (1,357 points). With that record, they will likely finish fourth in Yahoo Public 875884 League. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Peyton Manning (15th overall), RBs Zac Stacy (26th) and Ryan Mathews (35th), and WRs Calvin Johnson (6th) and Michael Crabtree (46th). They have one of the most prolific TE tandems in the league, as they have Jordan Cameron and Martellus Bennett on their team.

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

    Schedule

    Tony's Terrific Team can chalk up Week 4 as a big fat L. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have an easier-than-average slate. Although they have the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Tony's Terrific Team actually has the toughest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Earning Your Paycheck

      Tony's Terrific Team will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Golden Tate), fourth- (Cecil Shorts III), and fifth-ranked (Jeremy Maclin) wideouts.

    • Highlight Reel

      TE is the strongest position for Tony's Terrific Team, but DEF and QB are also stronger than the league average at those positions.

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

      Tony's Terrific Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

    • Team of Champions?

      Tony's Terrific Team is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Calvin Johnson, Peyton Manning, and Zac Stacy.

    Player Analysis

      • Calvin Johnson, WR
      • Round 1, Pick 6
      Meeting His Expectations

      Often the only WR taken in the first round in 2013, Megatron lived up to the billing and was owned on more playoff teams across Yahoo! than any other wideout.

      • Peyton Manning, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 15
      A Mile-High Marvel

      By fantasy standards, Peyton Manning's second season in Denver was his strongest as an NFL QB. He was owned on more championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues than any other quarterback.

      • Zac Stacy, RB
      • Round 3, Pick 26
      How Rebellious of You

      Tony's Terrific Team said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Zac Stacy).

      • M. Crabtree, WR
      • Round 5, Pick 46
      Rethinking That One

      Michael Crabtree may not justify his 46th overall draft pick if projections hold true. Currently, he is estimated to fall outside the NFL's top-30 in both yards (36th with 915) and TDs (32nd with 5.9).

      • Jordan Cameron, TE
      • Round 6, Pick 55
      A Big, Strong Threat

      Jordan Cameron ranks third in the Yahoo Public 875884 League among TEs with 130 projected fantasy points. If the pundits are wrong and he places outside the top-10, Tony's Terrific Team could be on the outside looking in come playoff time.

    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..."
