If crazy picker handles adversity during the season the way they did in this draft, it's going to be a long year. After receiving the 10th overall pick they were clearly rattled, which was made evident by their draft performance. As a result, they are projected to finish ninth in FFL- Family Fantasy League with a record of 2-11-0 (2,181 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Carson Palmer (31st overall), RB Ezekiel Elliott (11th), WR Keenan Allen (30th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (10th) within the first five rounds. They also landed one of the bottom groups of WRs in the league, as they have Allen, T.Y. Hilton, John Brown, and Allen Hurns on their team.
crazy picker should use Week 11 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like what was the greatest thing before sliced bread? No, seriously, think about it. It's better than thinking about fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have the most difficult schedule. Along with having the most grueling overall schedule, crazy picker also has the league's toughest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.
crazy picker is stacked at TE, but QB isn't too shabby, either.
Close to the Vest
crazy picker was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.
Decent Idea, Mediocre Execution
crazy picker will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 8, as their only K (Josh Brown) and only DEF (Los Angeles) will both be on bye that week.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, crazy picker chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).
A Pair of Proven Winners
crazy picker has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Rob Gronkowski and Carson Palmer) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
A Multifaceted Machine
Woodhead is a dual-threat back for crazy picker, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks first among RBs in projected receiving yards with 601.
A Repeat for Rob
- Rob Gronkowski, TE
- Round 1, Pick 10
For the second straight year, Gronkowski appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than any other TE.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- E. Elliott, RB
- Round 2, Pick 11
Ezekiel Elliott was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 3, Pick 30
Keenan Allen is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 99 projected catches rank fifth in the league.
Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls
- Carson Palmer, QB
- Round 4, Pick 31
By taking Carson Palmer with the 31st overall pick, crazy picker should have shown more patience. According to the signal-caller's ADP of only 54.4 across all Yahoo! leagues, he could've been chosen later. TLC would disapprove.
Was Matt Forte Worth it at Pick No. 51?
- Matt Forte, RB
- Round 6, Pick 51
crazy picker sure hopes so. The Jets' running back is projected to have 224 points this year, just a bit lower than his total from last year.
While crazy picker is projected to have four subpar positions, K is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.
- Connor Barth
- Rank 215, ADP 87
- Shayne Graham
- Rank 221, ADP 95
- Nick Folk
- Rank 226, ADP 121
- Cairo Santos
- Rank 231, ADP 142

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.
