gary's Fabulous Team wasn't able to overcome a poor draft position (seventh overall), and that will have to serve as the excuse as to why they are projected to land in ninth place in Yahoo Public 373633 League. With the roster as is, they are expected to finish 2-12-0 (1,431 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Julio Jones (first round), Keenan Allen (third round), and T.Y. Hilton (fourth round). They put together the lowest-scoring TE tandem in the league, as they have Zach Ertz and Martellus Bennett on their team.
Week 9 might require some artful managing from gary's Fabulous Team. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the most daunting schedule. Along with having the most taxing overall schedule, gary's Fabulous Team also has the league's second-toughest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.
Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for gary's Fabulous Team, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (T.Y. Hilton) and fourth-ranked (Torrey Smith) wideouts.
With four better-than-average positions on gary's Fabulous Team, RB and WR are projected as especially strong units.
Going Out with a Whimper
gary's Fabulous 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.
This is the American version, folks. gary's Fabulous Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.
A Multifaceted Machine
Lewis is a dual-threat back for gary's Fabulous Team, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fourth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 650.
In terms of projected points, the choice of Shayne Graham with the 147th pick gave gary's Fabulous Team the worst pick of the final round. This Mr. Irrelevant gets no parade, unfortunately.
Just Heave it to Julio
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 1, Pick 7
The lone NFL player to see 200 targets last season, only DeAndre Hopkins appeared on more first-place rosters than Jones in 2015.
Lamar Miller Doesn't Read the Playbook
- Lamar Miller, RB
- Round 2, Pick 14
The playbook reads him. gary's Fabulous Team should be in decent shape if Miller gets his 308 projected touches this year.
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 3, Pick 27
Keenan Allen is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 99 projected catches rank fifth in the league.
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 5, Pick 47
gary's Fabulous Team drafted the most explosive QB in the league in Drew Brees. He's projected to drop bombs on DBs this year, to lead NFL QBs in plays over 40 yards with 12.4 and TDs over 40 yards with 4.7.
Was the 54th Pick the Right Time for Ryan Mathews?
- Ryan Mathews, RB
- Round 6, Pick 54
gary's Fabulous Team apparently believes so. The Eagles' running back is projected to improve to the tune of 166 points this year, after only putting up 104 last year.
gary's Fabulous Team could potentially upgrade K and TE, but K is the position they'll want to focus on first.

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.
