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

256 Reasons for Mikegobills to Appreciate A.J. Green
- A.J. Green, WR
- Round 2, Pick 19
Green ranks ninth in the Pop Century League among WRs with 256 projected fantasy points.
LeSean McCoy Doesn't Read the Playbook
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 3, Pick 22

Knowing When to Take Off
- Russell Wilson, QB
- Round 4, Pick 39
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.
Apparently ADP is Overrated
- B. Marshall, WR
- Round 5, Pick 42
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.
There are three positions that Mikegobills could look to improve, including WR and DEF, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Brandon LaFell
- Rank 109, ADP 104
- Kendall Wright
- Rank 111, ADP 126
- Carolina Defense
- Rank 221, ADP 136
- Indianapolis Defense
- Rank 222, ADP 143

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.
