With a Projected Finish of Second, Stacey Sharp's Team Has a Loaded Roster

Draft Summary

Stacey Sharp's Team received the fourth pick in the draft and used it to build a juggernaut. The majority of the league will spend the season looking up at Stacey Sharp's Team in the standings, as they are expected to finish second in WTF Let's trade League with a record of 10-3-0 (1,593 points). With their first five picks, Stacey Sharp's Team aimed for balance, selecting QB Cam Newton (25th overall), RBs Jamaal Charles (32nd) and Jeremy Hill (60th), and WRs Julio Jones (4th) and Michael Floyd (53rd). They ended up with one of the best WR combos in the league, as they added Jones and Floyd to their fantasy roster.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.


Stacey Sharp's Team should use Week 11 to consider life's great mysteries, like why there's only one word for thesaurus. That's still time better spent than checking 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 weakest slate. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, Stacey Sharp's Team also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    At three different positions, Stacey Sharp's Team picked up projected top-3 players (Cam Newton, Julio Jones, and Chris Boswell).

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    Stacey Sharp's Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Julio Jones and Cam Newton) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, Stacey Sharp's Team chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • Digging Deep

    Bilal Powell is owned in only 5% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward Stacey Sharp's Team for their faith! Or not.

Player Analysis

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Just Heave it to Julio

    The lone NFL player to see 200 targets last season, only DeAndre Hopkins appeared on more first-place rosters than Jones in 2015.

    • Cam Newton, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 25
    Did Stacey Sharp's Team Just Dab?

    Among QBs last season, only Tom Brady appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than Carolina's signal-caller.

    • Jamaal Charles, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 32
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    Jamaal Charles was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

    • Michael Floyd, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 53
    Throwing Caution to the Wind

    They grabbed Michael Floyd with the 53rd pick, even though his ADP is only 64.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • E. Sanders, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 81
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Emmanuel Sanders, the weakest value of the round.

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..."
