While this draft by Ukaepernickthefuture didn't exactly set the world on fire, it didn't destroy their playoff aspirations either. They are expected to be in the mix for a playoff spot with a projected seventh-place finish in Yahoo Public 391938 League at 6-7-1 (1,519 points). They obviously understand how important the running back position is in fantasy football. They used three of their first five picks on RBs Lamar Miller (first round), Jamaal Charles (second round), and LeSean McCoy (fourth round). These players will be heavily relied upon by Ukaepernickthefuture, as they are the top group of RBs in the league.
While Week 8 has the most players on bye for Ukaepernickthefuture (four), Week 10 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the most challenging schedules. Along with the second-most demanding overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Ukaepernickthefuture.
Good Luck With That One!
Ukaepernickthefuture will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Jeremy Maclin), fourth- (DeSean Jackson), and fifth-ranked (John Brown) wideouts.
Sky's the Limit
With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Ukaepernickthefuture hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

Lamar Miller Doesn't Read the Playbook
- Lamar Miller, RB
- Round 1, Pick 10
The playbook reads him. Ukaepernickthefuture should be in decent shape if Miller gets his 308 projected touches this year.
- Jamaal Charles, RB
- Round 2, Pick 11
Ukaepernickthefuture stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, nabbing Lamar Miller and Jamaal Charles right off the bat.
Better Lucky Than Good?
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 4, Pick 31
The rest of Yahoo Public 391938 League overlooked a gem, and Ukaepernickthefuture made the highest value pick of the round by taking LeSean McCoy.
Jumping on Jarvis:
- Jarvis Landry, WR
- Round 6, Pick 51
Ukaepernickthefuture may see 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.
- DeSean Jackson, WR
- Round 7, Pick 70
Ukaepernickthefuture chose a WR who's highly likely to turn a deep ball into TD gold. DeSean Jackson is projected to rank second among NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 11.2 and TDs over 40 yards with 4.3.
With three below-average positions on Ukaepernickthefuture, DEF and TE are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Green Bay Defense
- Rank 239, ADP 135
- Indianapolis Defense
- Rank 246, ADP 126
- Zach Miller
- Rank 141, ADP 137
- Jared Cook
- Rank 143, ADP 134

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.
