    Projected to Finish Ninth, essam alkhatib Obviously Hates Winning

    Draft Summary

    Playoffs?! essam alkhatib is projected to finish in ninth-place in Yahoo Public 922153 League with a 5-9-0 (1,288 points) record and you want to talk about playoffs?! essam alkhatib should just hope they can win a few games, let alone reach the playoffs. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Drew Brees (18th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (3rd) and Rashad Jennings (38th), and WRs Jordy Nelson (23rd) and Cordarrelle Patterson (43rd). They landed one of the lowest-scoring groups of WRs in the league, as they have Nelson, Patterson, and Justin Hunter on the roster.

    Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    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.
