Despite Reaching for a Few Early-Rounders, Will Likely Reach Playoffs

Draft Summary put together an underrated roster that might not dominate week in and week out, but will be firmly entrenched in a playoff spot by season's end. They're projected to finish the season with a 7-6-0 (1,596) record in MIC WARS League, which will be good enough for fifth. With their first five picks, focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Andrew Luck (56th overall), RBs LeSean McCoy (1st) and Ray Rice (57th), and WRs Victor Cruz (28th) and Randall Cobb (29th). They landed a legit group of WRs, as they have Cobb, Cruz, Kelvin Benjamin, and Jarrett Boykin on their team.


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, 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 entire season, they have one of the toughest schedules. Corresponding with the third-most demanding overall schedule, also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Shouldering the Burden? has three above-average positions on their roster: QB, RB, and TE.

  • Up and Comers

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

  • The First Step is Admitting You Have a Problem

    It appears that enjoys gambling, as they took chances on seven "high-risk" picks.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (LeSean McCoy and Josh Gordon) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Bryce Brown at pick 169 was just a bit of a stretch. Brown is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 1
    Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

    Because his projected yardage figures are tasty. McCoy is ranked seventh in the league with 1,628 all-purpose yards.

    • Randall Cobb, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 29
    Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law

    Randall Cobb is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 87 projected catches rank 10th in the league.

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 56
    Rethinking That One?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, Andrew Luck was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • Ray Rice, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 57
    A Bit of a Reach went out on a limb with their fifth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Ray Rice has an ADP of 100, but he was grabbed at pick No. 57. Patience is a virtue,

    • Jordan Cameron, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 84
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, got a steal in snatching Jordan Cameron in the sixth round (84th overall pick vs. ADP of 53.3).

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..."
