Coinciding with Some Early-Round Reaches, Body Snatchers Has to Be Thinking, "Golly Jeepers!"

Draft Summary

Despite selecting with the fifth overall pick, Body Snatchers couldn't capitalize on the opportunity and drafted a roster that will have trouble winning. Opponents will enjoy beating this team with regularity, which is projected to finish 10th in OUTLAWS FANTASY II League with a record of 1-12-0 (4,245 points). With their first five picks, Body Snatchers aimed for balance, selecting QB Carson Palmer (45th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (5th) and Arian Foster (25th), and WRs Brandin Cooks (16th) and Alshon Jeffery (36th). They ended up with one of the worst groups of WRs in the league, as they have Jeffery, Cooks, Michael Floyd, and Steve Smith Sr. for their rotation.

Yikes. At least it can't get any worse. In fact, if you nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame, you'll be an official nominee. Feel better?


Body Snatchers should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why Greenland is ice and Iceland is green. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the most daunting schedule. Corresponding with the most grueling overall schedule, Body Snatchers also has the league's second-toughest first four games and second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • A Pair of Strengths

    Body Snatchers has two positional units projected to be better than the league average, QB and RB.

  • Up, Up, and Away

    With five players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Body Snatchers hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Root, Root, Root for the Home Team

    Body Snatchers is a believer in the hopes of the Miami Dolphins this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.

  • Tread Left on the Tires

    With an average of 6.7 years of NFL experience, Body Snatchers is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.

  • It's a Marathon, Not a Sprint

    Body Snatchers didn't exactly wrap up the draft on a high note, ending up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • My One and Only

    Forsaking roster depth, Body Snatchers chose only one player at three different positions (QB, TE, and K).

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Feed Thy Beast

    Adrian Peterson will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish second in the league with 324 touches.

    • Arian Foster, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 25
    Throwing Caution to the Wind

    They grabbed Arian Foster with the 25th pick, even though his ADP is only 85.9 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Alshon Jeffery, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 36
    Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, Body Snatchers got a steal in the fourth round, when they selected Alshon Jeffery (36th overall pick vs. ADP of 22.4).

    • Carson Palmer, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 45
    Earning His Keep

    According to projections, Carson Palmer should finish ranked fifth in the league in passing TDs (29.4) and seventh in passing yards (4,429).

    • Michael Floyd, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 56
    Was Michael Floyd the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 56?

    Body Snatchers apparently thinks so. The Cardinals' wideout is projected to score 270 points this year, nearly identical to his total last year.

Best Available

Body Snatchers has three positions where an upgrade could be beneficial, with TE being the most immediate need.

    • Eric Ebron
    • Rank 130, ADP 135
    • Zach Miller
    • Rank 134, ADP 136
    • Jared Cook
    • Rank 140, ADP 133
    • Vance McDonald
    • Rank 145, ADP 138
  • Bye Week Points Lost

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..."
