For some the 10th overall pick is a challenge, for others its a blessing, but for Johnny Rehab it looks to be a curse and an early indicator of the season ahead. Most teams in the league will pick up an easy win against Johnny Rehab, resulting in their projected 6-8-0 (1,520) record and eighth-place finish in Yahoo Public 373633 League. They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Cam Newton (11th overall), RB C.J. Anderson (30th), WR A.J. Green (10th), and TE Travis Kelce (50th) within the first five rounds. They put together the best QB combo in the league, as they have Newton and Matt Ryan on the roster.
While Week 8 has the most players on bye for Johnny Rehab (four), Week 11 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 a softer-than-average schedule. Along with the fifth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Johnny Rehab.
Close to the Vest
Johnny Rehab was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing eight "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

Put All Your Eggs in One Basket
And then watch that basket. Ignoring roster depth, Johnny Rehab chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
Here's the Kicker
You could see decent numbers from the Falcons' kicking game. Even though Matt Ryan is expected to be a top-5 producer in passing yards (fourth with 4,535), he's projected to end up just 21st in the NFL with 22.6 TD passes.
Johnny Rehab drafted one of the most explosive QBs in the league in Matt Ryan. Among NFL QBs, he's projected to rank fourth in both plays over 40 yards with 11.3 and TDs over 40 yards with 4.3.

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

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.
