Despite a Set of Monster RBs, Just Soda Has a Solidly Average Roster

Draft Summary

With the fourth overall selection, Just Soda was in an ideal position to build a strong team. So much for that. They are projected to finish seventh in Dartmouth Drunks League with a 6-7-0 (1,754) record. If they still hope to be a playoff-caliber team, they may want to invest in a psychic or a magic eight ball to help out with the "tough" decisions this year. They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Philip Rivers (4th overall), RB Adrian Peterson (28th), WR T.Y. Hilton (21st), and TE Coby Fleener (45th) within the first five rounds. They also landed the top group of RBs in the league, as they added Lamar Miller, Peterson, and Jamaal Charles.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Just Soda has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least difficult schedules. Along with having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, Just Soda has the league's toughest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Anyone Else Need a Tight End in Dartmouth Drunks League?

    The trade market may heat up around Week 5, as both Coby Fleener and Jimmy Graham will be on bye for Just Soda.

  • Risk Averse

    Just Soda minimized risk by choosing seven consistent players among their 14 picks.

  • The Bargain Whisperer

    Just Soda was hunting for deals throughout the draft, snapping up four steals in the first 8 rounds (including Jamaal Charles, Lamar Miller, and Adrian Peterson).

  • Just Soda Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Jordan Todman at pick 165 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Todman is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

  • This Mr. Irrelevant gets No Parade

    In terms of projected points, the choice of Jordan Todman was the weakest pick of the final round. You had one last chance and you blew it, Just Soda.

Player Analysis

    • Philip Rivers, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    It's a Bold Strategy Cotton, Let's See if it Pays Off

    Philip Rivers has an ADP of only 82.3 across all Yahoo! leagues, and wasn't quite worth the fourth overall pick.

    • T.Y. Hilton, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 21
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of T.Y. Hilton had less value than any other pick of the round.

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 28
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Just Soda didn't grab their first RB (Adrian Peterson) until the third round.

    • Coby Fleener, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 45
    All Over the Field

    Coby Fleener is projected to rank among the top-5 for TEs in both receiving TDs (third with 7) and receiving yards (fourth with 880).

    • Lamar Miller, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 52
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Dartmouth Drunks League overlooked a gem, and Just Soda made the highest value pick of the round by taking Lamar Miller.

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..."
