    Todd's Team Draft Report Card


    Led by a Stellar WR Corps, Todd's Team is Loaded with Talent

    Draft Summary

    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.

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


    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.

    Draft Notes

    • 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.

    • Nearly There

      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.

    • Single-Bar Facemasks

      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.

    Player Analysis

      • LeSean McCoy, RB
      • Round 1, Pick 2
      Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

      Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. McCoy is ranked sixth in the league with 1,626 all-purpose yards.

      • Drew Brees, QB
      • Round 2, Pick 19
      Like a Prancing Unicorn

      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).

      • Julio Jones, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 22
      Stolen In Broad Daylight

      Julio Jones was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

      • T.Y. Hilton, WR
      • Round 6, Pick 59
      Was the 59th Pick the Right Time for T.Y. Hilton?

      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.

      • Greg Olsen, TE
      • Round 7, Pick 62
      Was the 62nd Pick the Right Time for Greg Olsen?

      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.

    Best Available

    With four below-average positions on Todd's Team, TE and K are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

      • Coby Fleener
      • Rank 179, ADP 137

    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..."
