Led by a Stellar WR Corps, Justin's Noice Team Has a Nasty Squad With Championship Aspirations

Draft Summary

Justin's Noice Team took the third overall pick and wove it into fantasy gold with an expected finish of first in The dirty dozen League. Their 12-1-0 projected record is no joke and opponents will need to pull out all the stops if they hope to knock off Justin's Noice Team. After exiting the draft with five RBs on the roster, Justin's Noice Team is set at that position heading into the season. Their RBs are projected to average 142 points this season, right around the league average of 138. They also landed the best group of WRs in the league, as they have Julio Jones, Dez Bryant, John Brown, and Corey Coleman on their team.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.


Justin's Noice Team should do pretty much anything other than watch football during Week 11. 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 a weaker-than-average slate. Although they have the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Justin's Noice Team actually has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Risk Averse

    Justin's Noice Team minimized risk by choosing nine consistent players among their 15 picks.

  • A Dominating Pair

    Justin's Noice Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Julio Jones and Doug Martin) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Insider Trading?

    Theo Riddick is owned in only 2% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Justin's Noice Team has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

  • A Multifaceted Machine

    Riddick is a dual-threat back for Justin's Noice Team, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks third among RBs in projected receiving yards with 579.

  • Mr. Relevant

    Justin's Noice Team scored the best value pick of the final round, drafting Justin Tucker at pick number 171.

Player Analysis

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    Just Heave it to Julio

    The lone NFL player to see 200 targets last season, only DeAndre Hopkins appeared on more first-place rosters than Jones in 2015.

    • Dez Bryant, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 22
    209 More Reasons to Appreciate Dez Bryant

    Bryant ranks seventh in the The dirty dozen League among WRs with 209 projected fantasy points.

    • Doug Martin, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 27
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Justin's Noice Team didn't grab their first RB (Doug Martin) until the third round.

    • Carlos Hyde, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 46
    Advanced Math

    If Justin's Noice Team had a nickel for every time Carlos Hyde is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 299 nickels.

    • Greg Olsen, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 51
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    Greg Olsen was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

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..."
