    Ken's Expert Team Draft Report Card


    Led by a Talented WR Corps, Ken's Expert Team Is Going to Own This League

    Draft Summary

    Ken's Expert Team had the unfortunate honor of picking ninth overall. It is unclear whether it was luck or monk-level concentration, but Ken's Expert Team did well and is projected to finish first in Yahoo Public 875884 League with 1,352 points and a record of 10-4-0. They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Dez Bryant (first round), Brandon Marshall (second round), and Randall Cobb (fourth round). These guys could be the key to the season for Ken's Expert Team, as they are the best group of WRs in the league.

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


    Ken's Expert Team should just disappear for a while during Week 9. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Ken's Expert Team.

    Draft Notes

    • Asset Management

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

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

    • Throwing Caution to the Wind

    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.
