Mikegobills Draft Report Card


Led by a Quality Group of RBs, Mikegobills Is Loaded with Talent

Draft Summary

Mikegobills parlayed a solid draft slot (second overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 8-6-0 (2,025 points), they're projected to finish fourth in Pop Century League. With their first five picks, Mikegobills focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Russell Wilson (39th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (2nd) and LeSean McCoy (22nd), and WRs A.J. Green (19th) and Brandon Marshall (42nd). They have the most prolific group of RBs in the league, as they have Peterson, McCoy, Jonathan Stewart, and Tevin Coleman for their rotation.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Mikegobills has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Mikegobills.

Draft Notes

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Mikegobills will need an assist from the waiver wire in Week 9, as their only TE (Travis Kelce), only K (Matt Prater), and only DEF (Arizona) will all be on bye that week.

  • Good Luck With That One!

    Mikegobills will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Brandon Marshall), fourth- (Pierre Garcon), and fifth-ranked (Sammy Watkins) wideouts.

  • Asset Allocation

    TE is the strongest position for Mikegobills, though RB and QB aren't too shabby either.

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Tevin Coleman, Mikegobills pounced on him at pick No. 142.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, Mikegobills chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • Take One Play Off and He Burns You

    Mikegobills drafted one of the most explosive QBs in the league in Eli Manning. Among NFL QBs, he's projected to rank second in plays over 40 yards with 11.9 and TDs over 40 yards with 4.6.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    No RB by Committee Here

    Look up "workhorse back" in the dictionary and there is a picture of Adrian Peterson. Mikegobills should be in good shape if he reaches his league-leading 333 projected touches this year.

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 19
    256 Reasons for Mikegobills to Appreciate A.J. Green

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 22
    LeSean McCoy Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. Mikegobills should be in decent shape if McCoy gets his 331 projected touches this year.

    • Russell Wilson, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 39
    Knowing When to Take Off

    He won't get too flashy in the passing game, but the ability to create with his legs makes Wilson a legitimate threat to NFL defenses -- and to future fantasy opponents of Mikegobills.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 42
    Apparently ADP is Overrated

    With their fifth-round pick, Mikegobills pulled the trigger. They took Brandon Marshall at pick number 42 despite an ADP of just 52.1 across all Yahoo! leagues.

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..."
