With a Pair of Cowboys Highlighting the Roster, My Boss Team Will be a Tough Team

Draft Summary

When a bottom-half draft slot yields top-half results, that's the sign of a strong effort by the GM. Such was the case with My Boss Team, which flipped its seventh overall pick into a projected fifth-place finish in Yahoo Public 391938 League (7-7-0, 1,535 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Dez Bryant (second round), Amari Cooper (fourth round), and Eric Decker (fifth round). They also have one of the bottom groups of RBs in the league, as they added Ezekiel Elliott, C.J. Anderson and Ameer Abdullah to their roster.

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

Schedule

While Week 5 has the most players on bye for My Boss Team (three), Week 7 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least difficult schedules. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, My Boss Team also has the league's second-easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • The Best Player Plays

    My Boss Team is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 4.4 years of NFL experience.

  • QB Controversy?

    The coach of My Boss Team might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted QB (Carson Palmer) and second-drafted QB (Marcus Mariota) have very similar seasonal point projections.

  • Big D

    My Boss Team elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in Yahoo Public 391938 League, My Boss Team may have found a gem in Tyler Lockett. Including his 753 projected return yards, he ranks ninth in the league with 1,483 all-purpose yards.

  • Basic Math is Optional

    Michael Vick once claimed, "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 381 projected rushing yards, Marcus Mariota can channel his inner Vick to help My Boss Team this year.

Player Analysis

    • E. Elliott, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    Feed Thy Beast

    Ezekiel Elliott will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish fourth in the league with 310 touches.

    • Dez Bryant, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Yahoo Public 391938 League overlooked a gem, and My Boss Team made the highest value pick of the round by taking Dez Bryant.

    • Amari Cooper, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 34
    165 Reasons for My Boss Team to Appreciate Amari Cooper

    Cooper ranks 10th in the Yahoo Public 391938 League among WRs with 165 projected fantasy points.

    • Carson Palmer, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 54
    Was Carson Palmer the Best Choice at Pick No. 54?

    My Boss Team apparently thinks so. The Cardinals' signal-caller is projected to earn 293 points this year, after putting up 320 last year.

    • Coby Fleener, TE
    • Round 7, Pick 67
    A Large Target for the QB

    Coby Fleener ranks fourth in the Yahoo Public 391938 League among TEs with 121 projected fantasy points.

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..."
