Despite a Set of Beast RBs, Tina's Team Should Have Studied Harder

Draft Summary

Yikes. Was this on purpose? We'll assume it was and that maybe the GM Tina's Team was just having an off day. Some work will be required if Tina's Team wants to finish anywhere other than last. Projections suggest they'll go 3-11-0 (1,409 points). With five WRs on the roster, Tina's Team might have more quantity than quality at that spot; their WRs are projected to average 136 points this season, fewer than the league average of 149. They ultimately collected the worst group of WRs in the league, as they have Demaryius Thomas, Julian Edelman, and Rishard Matthews.

Let this mediocre draft inspire you to always do better. To win your league. To get in the Toyota Hall of Fame and inspire a nation. Nominate yourself today.

Schedule

Week 9 might require some waiver-wire magic from Tina's Team, as their top two projected scorers (Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers) will be off that weekend. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the most daunting slate. Corresponding with the most demanding overall schedule, Tina's Team also has the league's toughest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    Tina's Team is stacked at RB, but TE isn't too shabby, either.

  • May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

    Tina's Team might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted (Ben Roethlisberger) and second-drafted (Philip Rivers) QBs have similar seasonal point projections.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With 11 "low-risk" players among their 15 picks, Tina's Team is looking for dependable help.

  • Scraping the Wire in Week 9

    Grabbing two QBs (Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers) that share a bye week was a bold move by the manager of Tina's Team.

  • Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up

    Tina's Team got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Tina's Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

Player Analysis

    • Jay Ajayi, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    Jay Ajayi Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. Tina's Team should be in decent shape if Ajayi gets his 309 projected touches this year.

    • Jordan Howard, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 11
    Traditionalist

    Tina's Team stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, nabbing Jay Ajayi and Jordan Howard right off the bat.

    • Travis Kelce, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 31
    Tina's Team Hops Aboard the Travis Train

    Though KC's offense attempted the eighth-fewest passes in the league, only two tight ends (Rudolph and Olsen) saw more targets than Kelce last season.

    • J. Crowder, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 50
    Trigger Happy

    With their fifth-round pick, Tina's Team pulled the trigger. They drafted Jamison Crowder at pick number 50 despite an ADP of just 77.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Julian Edelman, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 51
    Was Julian Edelman the Best Choice at Pick No. 51?

    Tina's Team apparently thinks so. The Patriots' wideout is projected to put up 145 points this year, after getting 130 last year.

Best Available

While Tina's Team is expected to be weak across four positions, DEF is definitely their worst unit and an area of need.

    • Atlanta Defense
    • Rank 235, ADP 118
    • Dallas Defense
    • Rank 238, ADP 121
    • Buffalo Defense
    • Rank 241, ADP 137
    • Philadelphia Defense
    • Rank 251, ADP 128

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..."
