Look, Team 1, not everyone achieves the "above" in "above average," it has to be earned. Just be happy being an average GM, and maybe with a little hard work and a better draft next season, your team will reach that milestone. Team 1 didn't kill their playoff aspirations with this draft, but they'll have to do some extra work to get there. For now, they're projected to finish in seventh-place in Yahoo Public 901430 League at 5-9-0 (1,537 points). They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs DeAndre Hopkins (first round), Allen Robinson (second round), and T.Y. Hilton (fourth round). They put together the worst TE pair in the league, as they have Julius Thomas and Tyler Eifert.
Team 1 should use Week 5 to consider life's great mysteries, like why Greenland is ice and Iceland is green. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-challenging-than-average schedule. Along with having the third-most grueling overall schedule, Team 1 also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.
Shouldering the Burden
Team 1 has four above-average positions with RB and WR projected to lead the way.
Close to the Vest
Team 1 was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.
Punting Your Kicking Stats in Week 11?
Team 1 must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 11, both Shayne Graham and Nick Folk will be on bye.
Team 1 knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.
Team of Champions?
Team 1 is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: DeAndre Hopkins, Allen Robinson, and Doug Martin.
Take One Play Off and He Burns You
Kirk Cousins likes to score quickly, ranking fifth among NFL QBs with 4.3 TDs over 40 yards.
Targeting the Texan
- D. Hopkins, WR
- Round 1, Pick 9
Hopkins was one of just three wideouts (along with Julio Jones and Antonio Brown) to get at least 190 targets last year, and only Devonta Freeman and Tom Brady appeared more often on championship rosters than Houston's stud WR.
171 Reasons for Team 1 to Appreciate Allen Robinson
- Allen Robinson, WR
- Round 2, Pick 12
Robinson ranks ninth in the Yahoo Public 901430 League among WRs with 171 projected fantasy points.
Wait For It
- Doug Martin, RB
- Round 3, Pick 29
Team 1 held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to snag their "lead back" (Doug Martin).
Like Elway in His Prime
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 6, Pick 52
Drew Brees is projected to lead the NFL in both passing yards (4,805) and passing TDs (31.5).
Apparently ADP is Overrated
- Julius Thomas, TE
- Round 7, Pick 69
With their seventh-round pick, Team 1 pulled the trigger. They took Julius Thomas at pick number 69 despite an ADP of just 81.3 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Team 1 has a couple positions they may look to upgrade (K and TE), but K is the area they'll want to focus their attention first.
- Josh Brown
- Rank 228, ADP 136
- Cairo Santos
- Rank 231, ADP 142
- Chandler Catanzaro
- Rank 233, ADP 140
- Dan Bailey
- Rank 240, ADP 134

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.
