Despite an Exciting Set of WRs, Lenny's Legit Team Has No Idea How to Draft a Winning Team

Draft Summary

Is someone going to put out that dumpster fire? Oh, whoops, that's not a dumpster fire that's the Lenny's Legit Team roster. Easy mistake with a team that needs this much work. As the roster stands, Lenny's Legit Team is projected to finish 12th in MIC WARS League with a record of 4-9-0 (1,535 points). They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Calvin Johnson (first round), Pierre Garcon (fourth round), and T.Y. Hilton (fifth round). A lot will be expected of this group, as they are one of the best groups of WRs in the league.


Week 10 might require some artful managing from Lenny's Legit Team, as their top two projected scorers (Calvin Johnson and Jay Cutler) will have a bye week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a softer-than-average schedule. Along with having the sixth-easiest overall schedule, Lenny's Legit Team also has the second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • WR or Bust

    WR is the only above-average position group for Lenny's Legit Team.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, Lenny's Legit Team chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • Lenny's Legit Team Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Benny Cunningham at pick 220 was just a bit of a stretch. Cunningham is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Calvin Johnson, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    The Alchemist

    Lenny's Legit Team chose the WR most likely to turn deep balls into TD gold. Calvin Johnson is projected to lead all NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 4.8 and TDs over 40 yards with 2.

    • Le'Veon Bell, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 24
    Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

    Get on up, it's Le'Veon Bell time! He's predicted to run cool this season with 234 projected points.

    • Pierre Garcon, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 52
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Lenny's Legit Team got a steal in snatching Pierre Garcon in the fourth round (52nd overall pick vs. ADP of 41).

    • T.Y. Hilton, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 61
    Rethinking That One

    While drafted 61st overall, T.Y. Hilton isn't projected among the NFL's top-20 in either receiving TDs (27th with 6.1) or receiving yards (27th with 991).

    • Jay Cutler, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 80
    Was Jay Cutler Worth it at Pick No. 80?

    Lenny's Legit Team sure hopes so. The Bears' signal-caller is projected to put up 274 points this year, after only netting 181 last season.

Best Available

There are five positions that Lenny's Legit Team could look to improve, including QB and TE, which look like the biggest areas of need.

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..."
