Projected to Finish First, FFToolbox Weekly Will Make Opponents Regret Playing Fantasy Football

Draft Summary

This draft by FFToolbox Weekly was like a finely tuned Peyton Manning-led offense, with all the pieces falling into place. Just like Peyton's offense, FFToolbox Weekly is expected to score a lot of points this season and finish first in MIC WARS League at 11-2-0 (1,661 points). With six WRs on the roster, FFToolbox Weekly guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 179, their WRs projected average of 183 points this season is not much different than the rest of the wideout groups in the league. They landed the highest-scoring TE combo in the league, as they added Rob Gronkowski and Greg Olsen.


Week 10 might require some waiver-wire magic from FFToolbox Weekly, as their top two projected scorers (Matt Ryan and Brandon Marshall) will be resting that weekend. Looking at the entire season, they have a harder-than-average schedule. Along with having the seventh-most grueling overall schedule, FFToolbox Weekly has the easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Stockpiling Talent at TE

    FFToolbox Weekly should be in good shape with three position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE is definitely the strongest among them.

  • Better Late Than Never

    FFToolbox Weekly finished on a high note, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • A Stretch of the Imagination

    Grabbing Rod Streater at pick 207 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Streater is owned on just a handful of teams across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 11
    The Power of Persuasion

    Now would be a reasonable time for FFToolbox Weekly to encourage the MIC WARS League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Brandon Marshall and his 93 projected catches (ranked fifth in the NFL).

    • Marshawn Lynch, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Is His Jersey Made of Honey?

    Because the projections for Marshawn Lynch are sweet. He's projected to be the ninth-best RB in the league this season.

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 3, Pick 39
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    Rob Gronkowski was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

    • Joique Bell, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 46
    A Bit of a Reach

    FFToolbox Weekly went out on a limb with their fourth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Joique Bell has an ADP of 88.8, but he was grabbed at pick No. 46. Patience is a virtue, FFToolbox Weekly.

    • Matt Ryan, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 74
    A Super Duper Signal-Caller

    Matt Ryan is projected to rack up 304 points this year, enough to rank fifth among all QBs.

Best Available

FFToolbox Weekly has three positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including QB and DEF, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Johnny Manziel
    • Rank 136, ADP 130
    • Alex Smith
    • Rank 146, ADP 124
    • Buffalo Defanse
    • Rank 215, ADP 138
    • Indianapolis Defanse
    • Rank 225, ADP 144
  • Bye Week Points Lost

    Each bar represents the total projected season points for each player that's on bye that week. This chart shows any potential bye week issues.

  • Pick Number Minus ADP
    Pick Number

    Bars above zero indicate a pick was selected later than a player's ADP. Bars below zero show players that were taken earlier than their ADP.

  • Avg Points by Position vs League
        Team     League

    The average projected points for all the players at each position versus the average projected points for all players at that position in the league.

  • Schedule by Opponent Points

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..."
