Slated for a 10th-Place Finish, Martin's Team Has to Be Thinking, "Dagnabbit!"

Draft Summary

Whatever strategy Martin's Team used to build this team, it should be thrown out, because it didn't work. Picking 11th, they struggled to piece together a competitive team and as a result, are projected to finish 10th in Victory is Mine League with a record of 3-10-0 (1,824 points). Despite having five WRs on the roster, Martin's Team might need to hire a WR scout to watch the waiver wire. Their receivers are projected to average 157 points this season, which is less than the league average of 197. They ended up with the lowest-scoring group of WRs in the league, as they have Eric Decker, DeSean Jackson, Markus Wheaton, and Tyler Boyd for their rotation.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.

Schedule

Martin's Team can write off Week 8 as a scheduling injustice and use that time to consider other injustices: for example, why doesn't Chewbacca get a medal during the ceremony at the end of Star Wars? Wookie bias? They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the toughest schedules. Along with having the second-most taxing overall schedule, Martin's Team has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Close to the Vest

    Martin's Team was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Martin's Team grabbed a sleeper in Tyler Boyd with pick No. 179.

  • Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in Victory is Mine League, Martin's Team may have found a gem in Ameer Abdullah. Including his 596 projected return yards, he ranks seventh in the league with 1,543 all-purpose yards.

  • Mr. Mendoza

    Tyler Boyd is owned in only 2% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Martin's Team has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 11
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, Aaron Rodgers was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • D. Freeman, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    Haters Gonna Hate

    The rest of Victory is Mine League overlooked a gem, and Martin's Team made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Devonta Freeman.

    • Carlos Hyde, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 38
    Hyde is Hungry

    And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank eighth in the NFL with 294 touches.

    • S. Gostkowski, K
    • Round 5, Pick 59
    Throwing Caution to the Wind

    They grabbed Stephen Gostkowski with the 59th pick, even though his ADP is only 76.6 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Delanie Walker, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 62
    The Titan to Target

    Walker led all TEs in both targets (133) and receptions (94) last year, and received double-digit targets in seven of the 15 games in which he played.

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..."
