Jack's Team received the third pick in the draft and used it to build a juggernaut. The majority of the league will spend the season looking up at Jack's Team in the standings, as they are expected to finish first in Cowtooth Masters League with a record of 9-4-1 (1,702 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (10th overall), RB DeMarco Murray (15th), WR Julio Jones (3rd), and TE Jimmy Graham (27th) within the first five rounds. They also ultimately collected the most prolific group of RBs in the league, as they added Jay Ajayi, Murray, and Jordan Howard to the team.
Ever wonder what exactly was inside the briefcase in Pulp Fiction? Jack's Team should use Week 11 to solve the mystery, since they certainly won't be winning. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the easiest schedules. Although they have the second-easiest overall schedule, Jack's Team actually has the league's toughest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.
QB is the strongest position for Jack's Team, though TE and RB aren't too shabby either.
Jack's Team must have had to leave their draft party early. After tallying the most projected points in the league over the draft's first half, they managed the fewest during the second half.
Jack's Team minimized risk by choosing seven consistent players among their 15 picks.
You Almost Got It Right
The top half of the Jack's Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1). The bottom of the roster, unfortunately, is rated as the league's weakest.
Going Out with a Whimper
Jack's Team didn't end the night the way they might have liked, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
Team of Champions
Jack's Team is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, seven of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including Aaron Rodgers, DeMarco Murray, and Jay Ajayi.
Does Julio Jones Enjoy Fajitas?
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 1, Pick 3
Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Jones is projected to rank seventh in the league with 1,542 all-purpose yards.
Haters Gonna Hate
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 2, Pick 10
The rest of Cowtooth Masters League overlooked a gem, and Jack's Team made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Aaron Rodgers.
How Rebellious of You
- DeMarco Murray, RB
- Round 3, Pick 15
Jack's Team said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (DeMarco Murray).
Feed Thy Beast
- Jay Ajayi, RB
- Round 4, Pick 22
Jay Ajayi will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish third in the league with 309 touches.
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 5, Pick 27
A bargain at his ADP last season, no tight end appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than Jimmy Graham.
If Jack's Team wants to upgrade, DEF and WR are areas they could go after first.
- Kansas City Defense
- Rank 141, ADP 77
- Minnesota Defense
- Rank 146, ADP 87
- Keenan Allen
- Rank 42, ADP 48
- Davante Adams
- Rank 43, ADP 43

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.
