Todd's Team took advantage of a favorable draft slot and built the kind of roster that makes opponents "go out of town" or "spend time with the kids" when they see your team on the schedule. Todd's Team is projected to finish second in Yahoo Public 875884 League at 9-5-0 (1,364 points). With their first five picks, Todd's Team focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Drew Brees (19th overall), RBs LeSean McCoy (2nd) and C.J. Spiller (39th), and WRs Julio Jones (22nd) and Pierre Garcon (42nd). They ended up with the highest-scoring QB combo in the league, as they added Brees and Jay Cutler to their squad.
While Week 10 has the most players on bye for Todd's Team (five), Week 9 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the easiest slates. Todd's Team has the opportunity to come out firing, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
A Pair of Strengths
Todd's Team has two positional units projected to be better than the league average, WR and QB.
Get Off My Lawn
With an average of 8.6 years of NFL experience, Todd's Team is the oldest and by default, least exciting team in the league.
The top half of the Todd's Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 8).
Full Control Early On
Todd's Team began things with a bang, nabbing the most projected points in the league during the draft's first half.
Todd's Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.
A Dominating Duo
Todd's Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (LeSean McCoy and Drew Brees) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 1, Pick 2
Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. McCoy is ranked sixth in the league with 1,626 all-purpose yards.
Like a Prancing Unicorn
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 2, Pick 19
Drew Brees is a fantasy dream. He's projected to finish second in the NFL in both passing TDs (37.9) and passing yards (5,111).
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 3, Pick 22
Julio Jones was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
Was the 59th Pick the Right Time for T.Y. Hilton?
- T.Y. Hilton, WR
- Round 6, Pick 59
Todd's Team apparently believes it is. The Colts' wide receiver is projected to have 139 points this year, just a bit lower than his total from last year.
Was the 62nd Pick the Right Time for Greg Olsen?
- Greg Olsen, TE
- Round 7, Pick 62
Todd's Team apparently believes it is. The Panthers' tight end is projected to get 121 points this year, nearly identical to his total last year.
With four below-average positions on Todd's Team, TE and K are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.
- Tim Wright
- Rank 174, ADP 139
- Coby Fleener
- Rank 179, ADP 137
- Matt Bryant
- Rank 247, ADP 134
- Alex Henery
- Rank 254, ADP 135

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.
