A late round draft pick would fluster the novice fantasy football manager, but this was obviously not the first rodeo for Corn Julio. They were able to flip the sixth overall pick into an expected finish of first place with a record of 10-3-0 (1,903 points). With five WRs on the roster, Corn Julio has a star-studded wideout group that's projected to average 233 points this season. The league average is 214. When the dust settled, they'd ultimately landed the highest-scoring group of WRs in the league, as they have Tyreek Hill, Antonio Brown, Jarvis Landry, and Emmanuel Sanders for their rotation.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Corn Julio has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have one of the weakest slates. Along with the third-easiest overall schedule, both the first month and final month of the season project to be close to league-average in terms of difficulty for Corn Julio.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Corn Julio will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 5, as their only K (Matt Bryant) and only DEF (Denver) will both be on bye that week.
Corn Julio minimized risk by choosing 10 consistent players among their 16 picks.
A Dominating Pair
Corn Julio has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Antonio Brown and Melvin Gordon) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
No Back-Up No Cry
Ignoring roster depth, Corn Julio chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
Very Sneaky, Corn Julio
They nabbed a sleeper in Joe Mixon with pick No. 123.
Corn Julio Went All YOLO Here
Grabbing Vic Beasley Jr. at pick 70 was just a bit of a stretch. Beasley Jr. is owned on only a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 6
With a grip that would make Spider-Man jealous, Antonio Brown has serious value in all PPR leagues. He's projected to catch an NFL-leading 110 balls this year.
Gordon is Hungry
- Melvin Gordon, RB
- Round 2, Pick 11
And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank fifth in the NFL with 298 touches.
Time to Sign Up for Andy Behrens' Fantasy Camp
- Dak Prescott, QB
- Round 3, Pick 22
Despite being selected 22nd overall, Dak Prescott is not projected among the NFL's top-15 in either passing TDs (17th with 25.6) or passing yards (16th with 3,990).
Better Lucky Than Good
- Tyreek Hill, WR
- Round 5, Pick 38
The rest of Georgia Dawgs League overlooked a gem, and Corn Julio made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Tyreek Hill.
Let's Call it a Learning Experience
- Delanie Walker, TE
- Round 6, Pick 43
Hey, remember that time Corn Julio took Delanie Walker WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Walker was the weakest value pick of the round.
There are four positions that Corn Julio could look to upgrade, including RB, which looks like their biggest area of need.
- C.J. Anderson
- Rank 47, ADP 72
- Ameer Abdullah
- Rank 51, ADP 90
- Mark Ingram
- Rank 53, ADP 75
- Tevin Coleman
- Rank 63, ADP 89

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.
