Despite selecting in the top half of the first round (fourth overall), juan's Team might as well have been blindly heaving darts at the draft board to decide their picks. Opponents are going to enjoy beating this team, which is projected to finish ninth in Yahoo Public 285420 League with a record of 1-13-0 (1,492 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Andrew Luck (37th overall), RBs Todd Gurley (4th) and Jamaal Charles (17th), and WRs Allen Robinson (24th) and Demaryius Thomas (44th). They put together the bottom group of WRs in the league, as they have Robinson, Michael Crabtree, Thomas, and DeVante Parker for their rotation.
While Week 8 has the most players on bye for juan's Team (four), Week 5 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the most difficult slates. In addition to having the second-most grueling overall schedule, juan's Team also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.
Good Luck With That One!
juan's Team will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Demaryius Thomas), fourth- (DeVante Parker), and fifth-ranked (Sterling Shepard) wideouts.
QB is the strongest position for juan's Team, but TE and K are also stronger than the league average at those positions.
On the Rise
juan's Team hopes to break through this season, led by four players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.
It appears that juan's Team likes to gamble, as they took chances on six volatile selections.
Decent Idea, Mediocre Execution
juan's Team will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 9, as their only TE (Tyler Eifert) and only DEF (Cincinnati) will both be idle that week.
A Pair of Proven Winners
juan's Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Todd Gurley and Allen Robinson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
Feed The Beast
- Todd Gurley, RB
- Round 1, Pick 4
Over here we have a rarity in the wild named Todd Gurley. Projected to get a league-leading 319 touches, he feasts on feeble defenses.
- Jamaal Charles, RB
- Round 2, Pick 17
juan's Team stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Todd Gurley and Jamaal Charles before targeting other positions.
Better Lucky Than Good?
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 4, Pick 37
The rest of Yahoo Public 285420 League overlooked a gem, and juan's Team made the highest value pick of the round by taking Andrew Luck.
The Heist Is On
- D. Thomas, WR
- Round 5, Pick 44
The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, juan's Team got a steal in snatching Demaryius Thomas in the fifth round (44th overall pick vs. ADP of 24.5).
It Was a Learning Experience
- DeVante Parker, WR
- Round 6, Pick 57
Hey, remember that time juan's Team took DeVante Parker WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Parker was the weakest value pick of the round.
With three subpar positions on juan's Team, WR and DEF are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Dorial Green-Beckham
- Rank 111, ADP 118
- Kamar Aiken

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.
