Draft Summary

When a bottom-half draft slot yields top-half results, that's the sign of a strong effort by the GM. Such was the case with Arrogant Americans, which flipped its 14th overall pick into a projected fifth-place finish in OklahomIraqis League (8-5-0, 1,886 points). They must be in love with the wide receiver position, using their first three picks on Dez Bryant (14th overall), Antonio Brown (15th), and Percy Harvin (42nd). These guys could be the key to the season for Arrogant Americans, as they are the best group of WRs in the league.

Schedule

Arrogant Americans should use Week 4 to consider life's great mysteries, like why is there only one word for thesaurus? That's still better time spent than checking fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the weakest slate. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, Arrogant Americans has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • A Good Problem to Have?

    Arrogant Americans will have some tricky calls to make each week at RB, with a slim projected points difference between their third- (Dexter McCluster), fourth- (Darren McFadden), and fifth-ranked (Mark Ingram) RBs.

  • Stockpiling Talent at WR

    Arrogant Americans should be in good shape with six position groups projected to be better-than-average. WR is definitely the strongest among them.

  • Up and Comers

    Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and Arrogant Americans may have done just that, with eight players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.

  • Beginning with a Bang

    Arrogant Americans got off to a sizzling start, amassing the most projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, Arrogant Americans chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Malcom Floyd, Arrogant Americans pounced on him at pick No. 210.

Player Analysis

    • Dez Bryant, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 14
    Bryant is More of a Full-Service Guy

    Rodney Dangerfield claimed he once went to a massage parlor that was self-service. With 314 projected fantasy points this year, Dez Bryant should serve Arrogant Americans a little better than that.

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    284 Excuses to Cheer for Antonio Brown

    Brown ranks sixth in the OklahomIraqis League among wideouts with 284 projected fantasy points.

    • Percy Harvin, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 42
    Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in OklahomIraqis League, Arrogant Americans may have found a gem in Percy Harvin. Including his 788 projected return yards, he ranks third in the league with 1,708 all-purpose yards.

    • Shane Vereen, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 43
    If it Ain't Broke

    Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Arrogant Americans didn't grab their first RB (Shane Vereen) until the fourth round.

    • E. Sanders, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 70
    A Bit of a Reach

    Arrogant Americans went out on a limb with their fifth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Emmanuel Sanders has an ADP of 103.7, but he was grabbed at pick No. 70. Patience is a virtue, Arrogant Americans.

Best Available

Although Arrogant Americans can pretty much hold tight with this roster as is, DEF is one area they could potentially upgrade if they get the itch to make a move.

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..."
