Led by a Stellar WR Corps, Joslyn's Dad Is a Team to Watch

Draft Summary

Joslyn's Dad parlayed a solid draft slot (sixth overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 6-6-1 (1,898 points), they're projected to finish fifth in Deflaters Gonna Deflate League. 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 A.J. Green (first round), Dez Bryant (second round), and Jarvis Landry (fourth round). A lot will be expected of this group, as they are one of the most prolific groups of WRs in the league.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.

Keeper Summary

Joslyn's Dad took advantage of their only keeper position to hold on to Andy Dalton (112.3 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is less valuable than a first-round draft pick.

Schedule

Week 9 might require some artful managing from Joslyn's Dad. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have an easier-than-average slate. Along with having the sixth-easiest overall schedule, Joslyn's Dad has the most difficult last four games of the season.

  • AARP Card's in the Mail

    With an average of 7.9 years of NFL experience, Joslyn's Dad is the team most likely to have a player qualify for a senior citizen discount.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Joslyn's Dad chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • It's How You Finish

    Joslyn's Dad made every other squad look silly after some amazing halftime adjustments, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 30
    How Rebellious of You

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 43
    Late Bloom for Landry

    Joslyn's Dad may be sensing some WR1 potential in Landry, who was one of three players (along with Julio Jones and Antonio Brown) to see double-digit targets in each of the final four weeks of 2015.

    • Delanie Walker, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 54
    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.

Best Available

The best move for Joslyn's Dad may be to let the season play out some before making a move, however, DEF is one area they could potentially upgrade if they can't be patient.

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.
