After Some Early Gambles, Forte Yr Old Virgin Still Has Work To Do

Draft Summary

As Ricky Bobby's dad once told him, "If you ain't first you're last." Forte Yr Old Virgin really took that message to heart as they're projected to finish near the bottom of Olson/Donoghue Football League with a record of 4-9-1 (1,361). While they'll try to blame their poor season on the bad draft slot, the other GMs will know Forte Yr Old Virgin simply just dropped the ball. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Aaron Rodgers (9th overall), RBs LeSean McCoy (29th) and Latavius Murray (32nd), and WRs A.J. Green (12th) and Kelvin Benjamin (49th). They also have a quality group of WRs, as they have Green, Jeremy Maclin, John Brown, and Benjamin for their rotation.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.

Keeper Summary

Forte Yr Old Virgin used their only keeper position to hold on to Aaron Rodgers (25.8 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is less valuable than a first-round draft pick.

Schedule

Forte Yr Old Virgin should just disappear for a while during Week 10. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a tougher-than-average slate. Despite having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, Forte Yr Old Virgin actually has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Forte Yr Old Virgin might require waiver wire help in Week 10, as their No. 1- (LeSean McCoy), No. 2- (Latavius Murray) and No. 4-ranked (Frank Gore) RBs will all be idle that week.

  • Risk Averse

    Forte Yr Old Virgin minimized risk by choosing seven consistent players among their 14 picks.

  • Forte Yr Old Virgin will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 8, as their only K (Chris Boswell) and only DEF (Pittsburgh) will both be on bye that week.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, Forte Yr Old Virgin chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • Not Afraid to Scramble

    With 520 projected rushing yards (ranked second among QBs), Tyrod Taylor has multiple ways to bring in points.

  • Mr. Relevant

    In terms of projected points, the choice of Pittsburgh was the strongest pick of the final round. Savvy move, Forte Yr Old Virgin.

Player Analysis

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 9
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

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

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 12
    Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law

    A.J. Green is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 90 projected catches rank ninth in the league.

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 29
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Forte Yr Old Virgin didn't grab their first RB (LeSean McCoy) until the third round.

    • K. Benjamin, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 49
    Rethinking That One

    Kelvin Benjamin may not justify his 49th overall draft pick if projections hold true. Currently, he is estimated to fall outside the NFL's top-20 in both yards (29th with 969) and TDs (21st with 7.4).

    • John Brown, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 52
    Apparently ADP is Overrated

    With their sixth-round pick, Forte Yr Old Virgin pulled the trigger. They took John Brown at pick number 52 despite an ADP of just 83.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Best Available

Forte Yr Old Virgin could potentially upgrade RB and TE, but RB is the position they'll want to focus on first.

    • Danny Woodhead
    • Rank 95, ADP 117
    • Ameer Abdullah
    • Rank 102, ADP 115

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..."
