Chock-Full of WR Talent, Just You Wait is a Boss In the Draft Game

Draft Summary

Just You Wait had the unfortunate honor of picking 10th overall. It is unclear whether it was luck or monk-level concentration, but Just You Wait did well and is projected to finish third in NSL National SLO League with 1,859 points and a record of 9-4-0. They won't have any issues with depth at WR, using their first three picks to load up, drafting A.J. Green, Brandin Cooks, and Demaryius Thomas. This group will have to produce in order for Just You Wait to have a good season, as they are the most prolific group of WRs in the league.

You're close to greatness. And if being close isn't good enough for you, you might be worthy of the Toyota Hall of Fame. Nominate yourself now.

Keeper Summary

Just You Wait took advantage of their only keeper spot to hold on to Tom Brady (24.7 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is less valuable than a first-round draft pick.


Week 9 may cause some frustration for Just You Wait, as their top two projected scorers (Tom Brady and Philip Rivers) will be off with byes. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the weakest slates. Just You Wait has the opportunity to start and finish with a flurry, as both the first four games and final four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • Asset Management

    Just You Wait is loaded at WR and QB. Could they be willing to leverage some of that talent and listen to trade offers from other teams in NSL National SLO League?

  • Aging Stars

    The top half of the roster, from a projected points perspective, is relatively old (ranked No. 1 in the league with an average of 9.2 years of NFL experience), whereas the bottom half is fairly young (ranked No. 11 with 4.8 years).

  • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

    Just You Wait grabbed a couple of QBs (Tom Brady and Philip Rivers) that'll both be on bye in Week 9, and will be looking for a signal-caller. You can try to call Brett, but texting him isn't exactly encouraged.

  • Decently Mediocre

    While the bottom half of the Just You Wait roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).

  • It's How You Finish

    Just You Wait made every other squad look silly after some amazing halftime adjustments, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • Super Sleepers

    Donte Moncrief and Austin Hooper are a couple of late-round fliers with upside for Just You Wait.

Player Analysis

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    Just You Wait Gets Groovy With Green

    A.J. averaged 11.0 targets, 7.3 receptions, and 107.1 yards in nine games prior to getting injured in Week 11 last year. The 29-year-old Bengals star is healthy and primed for a big campaign this season.

    • Brandin Cooks, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    On a Scale of 1 to America

    How free will Brandin Cooks be in the secondary? He's projected to rack up 1,231 receiving yards this year.

    • Joe Mixon, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 39
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Just You Wait didn't grab their first RB (Joe Mixon) until the fourth round.

    • Tevin Coleman, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 58
    Taking a Chance

    With their fifth-round pick, Just You Wait threw caution to the wind. They took Tevin Coleman at pick number 58 despite an ADP of 88.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Kyle Rudolph, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 63
    Valuable Viking

    No tight end saw more overall targets (or red zone targets) than Rudolph last season, and Just You Wait will hope that trend continues.

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..."
