Led by an Elite Group of RBs, Jorean Has a Stacked Squad

Draft Summary

This draft by Jorean was like a finely tuned Peyton Manning-led offense, with all the pieces falling into place. Just like Peyton's offense, Jorean is expected to score a lot of points this season and finish second in Whittier OC Battle League at 10-3-0 (1,937 points). They aimed for having a balanced roster throughout, taking QB Drew Brees (58th overall), RBs Jordan Howard (15th) and Lamar Miller (34th), and WRs Mike Evans (10th) and Demaryius Thomas (39th). They ultimately landed one of the most prolific groups of WRs in the league, as they have Evans, Thomas, Jordan Matthews, and Rishard Matthews for their rotation.

You're close to greatness. And if being close isn't good enough for you, you might be worthy of the Toyota Hall of Fame. Nominate yourself now.


Week 5 might require some waiver-wire magic from Jorean, as their top two projected scorers (Drew Brees and Kirk Cousins) will be off that weekend. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have a weaker-than-average slate. Along with having the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Jorean has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Close to the Vest

    Jorean was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 14 picks.

  • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

    Jorean grabbed a couple of QBs (Drew Brees and Kirk Cousins) that'll both be on bye in Week 5, and will be looking for a signal-caller. You can try to call Brett, but texting him isn't exactly encouraged.

  • Team of Champions

    Jorean is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy rosters, including Mike Evans, Jordan Howard, and Drew Brees.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Hoping to play the favorable matchups week-to-week, Jorean chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • It's How You Finish

    Jorean must have had a motivational halftime speech, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • Earning His Keep

    Kirk Cousins is projected to finish ninth in the NFL in passing TDs with 28.7 and third in passing yards with 4,671.

Player Analysis

    • Mike Evans, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    Mike the Monster

    Second only to Jordy Nelson in receiving TDs last season, Evans appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than any other wide receiver.

    • Jordan Howard, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    Jordan Howard Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. Jorean should be in decent shape if Howard gets his 287 projected touches this year.

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 58
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Jorean got a steal in snatching Drew Brees in the fifth round (58th overall pick vs. ADP of 34.3).

    • Tevin Coleman, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 63
    Apparently ADP is Overrated

    With their sixth-round pick, Jorean pulled the trigger. They took Tevin Coleman at pick number 63 despite an ADP of just 88 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • M. Bennett, TE
    • Round 7, Pick 82
    Was the 82nd Pick the Right Time for Martellus Bennett?

    Jorean apparently believes so. The Packers' tight end is projected to put up 199 points this year, after getting 168 last year.

Best Available

If Jorean wants to upgrade, DEF and TE are areas they could go after first.

    • Jacksonville Defense
    • Rank 183, ADP 144
    • Baltimore Defense
    • Rank 185, ADP 138
    • C.J. Fiedorowicz
    • Rank 136, ADP 135
    • Coby Fleener
    • Rank 143, ADP 133
  • Bye Week Points Lost

  • Pick Number Minus ADP
    Pick Number

    Bars above zero indicate a pick was selected later than a player's ADP. Bars below zero show players that were taken earlier than their ADP.

  • Avg Points by Position vs League
        Team     League

    The average projected points for all the players at each position versus the average projected points for all players at that position in the league.

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..."
