Picking fourth, Captain Crunch put together a team that is expected to finish the season in a favorable spot. There's something to be said for a GM who flipped a bottom of the barrel pick into a projected second-place finish in Masilak Bowl IX League (8-5-1, 2,098 points). It seems Captain Crunch might care more about having depth at RB than having those RBs actually produce. Their eight RBs are projected to average 129 points this season, which is less than the league average of 144. They put together the top TE tandem in the league, as they have Rob Gronkowski and Delanie Walker.
Captain Crunch should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why Greenland is ice and Iceland is green. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. Their top three projected scorers (Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown) will be off that weekend. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have a more-difficult-than-average schedule. Along with the third-most grueling overall schedule, the first four games and last four games of the season are fairly average for Captain Crunch.
TE is the strongest position for Captain Crunch, though QB and WR aren't too shabby either.
On the Rise
Captain Crunch hopes to break through this season, led by six players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.
Senior Citizen Discount
With an average of 8.1 years of NFL experience, Captain Crunch is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.
Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away
Captain Crunch grabbed a couple of QBs (Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger) 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.
Team of Champions?
Captain Crunch is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Antonio Brown, LeSean McCoy, and Tom Brady.
Apparently ADP is Overrated
With their ninth-round pick, Captain Crunch pulled the trigger. They took C.J. Anderson at pick number 52 despite an ADP of just 71.3 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Captain Crunch Found Their WR1
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 4
Among all wide receivers, only Mike Evans and Jordy Nelson appeared on more championship rosters than Brown last season.
Turn Up The Volume
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 2, Pick 9
With 277 touches, LeSean McCoy is projected to rank ninth in the NFL in that category. Captain Crunch demands more!
- Dez Bryant, WR
- Round 3, Pick 16
Defenses Hate Him, Quarterbacks Love Him! Dez Bryant is expected to catch almost everything this year, as his 94 projected receptions rank fifth in the league.
Maybe Miller Will Surprise
- Lamar Miller, RB
- Round 4, Pick 21
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Lamar Miller was ultimately the weakest value pick of the round.
Haters Gonna Hate
- Rob Gronkowski, TE
- Round 5, Pick 28
The rest of Masilak Bowl IX League overlooked a gem, and Captain Crunch made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Rob Gronkowski.
If Captain Crunch wants to upgrade, RB and K are areas they could go after first.
- James White
- Rank 131, ADP 123
- C.J. Prosise
- Rank 138, ADP 126
- Sebastian Janikowski
- Rank 184, ADP 110
- Stephen Hauschka
- Rank 195, ADP 112

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.
