Led by a Stellar WR Corps, Stephen's Boss Team Crushed This Draft

Draft Summary

Collusion might be the only way to stop Stephen's Boss Team this year, as they are projected to finish with a record of 10-3-0; good enough for second in Victory is Mine League. They must be in love with the wide receiver position, using their first three picks on Antonio Brown (1st overall), Amari Cooper (24th), and Sammy Watkins (25th). These guys could be the key to the season for Stephen's Boss Team, as they are the best group of WRs in the league.

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

Schedule

Week 8 may not be very fun for Stephen's Boss Team, as their top two projected scorers (Antonio Brown and Joe Flacco) will be resting that weekend. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a less-challenging-than-average slate. In addition to having the sixth-easiest overall schedule, Stephen's Boss Team has the most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Up, Up, and Away

    With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Stephen's Boss Team hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    Stephen's Boss Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Antonio Brown and Tom Brady) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, Stephen's Boss Team got a steal in the ninth round, when they selected Julius Thomas (97th overall pick vs. ADP of 80.2).

  • He Can Catch, Too

    Charles Sims is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fourth among RBs with 535 projected receiving yards.

  • Mr. Mendoza

    Joe Flacco is owned in only 3% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Stephen's Boss Team has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 1
    Get a Grip

    Check that dude for stickum! Antonio Brown figures to be a PPR monster this season, with an NFL-leading 132 projected catches.

    • Sammy Watkins, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 25
    The Alchemist

    Stephen's Boss Team chose a WR who's highly likely to turn a deep ball into TD gold. Sammy Watkins is projected to rank fourth among NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 6.6 and TDs over 40 yards with 2.5.

    • J. Langford, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 48
    Wait For It

    Stephen's Boss Team held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to snag their "lead back" (Jeremy Langford).

    • Frank Gore, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 72
    Was the 72nd Pick the Right Time for Frank Gore?

    Stephen's Boss Team apparently believes so. The Colts' running back is projected to notch 180 points this year, after producing 203 last year.

    • Tom Brady, QB
    • Round 7, Pick 73
    Let Me Check it Again

    Why can't I find Tom Brady on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late-round flier."

Best Available

Stephen's Boss Team has four positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including QB and TE, which look like the biggest areas of need.

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..."
