Maybe jamilladaniels was out partying with Gronk and autodrafted? Hopefully that's their excuse as they are projected to finish ninth in Yahoo Public 56212 League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,455 points). With their first five picks, jamilladaniels focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Drew Brees (38th overall), RBs Todd Gurley (23rd) and Ty Montgomery (43rd), and WRs Antonio Brown (3rd) and Dez Bryant (18th). They also ultimately collected the bottom TE combo in the league, as they have Tyler Eifert and Antonio Gates on their team.
jamilladaniels should use Week 9 to ponder life's deeper mysteries, like can crop circles ever actually be crop squares? They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the most challenging slates. Along with having the second-most grueling overall schedule, jamilladaniels also has the second-hardest last four games of the season.
Earning Your Paycheck
jamilladaniels will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Kenny Britt), fourth- (Cameron Meredith), and fifth-ranked (Larry Fitzgerald) wideouts.
jamilladaniels minimized risk by choosing seven consistent players among their 15 picks.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Apparently jamilladaniels missed the point of drafting a back-up defense. In Week 8, both New York and Green Bay will be on bye.
The top half of the jamilladaniels roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 2). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).
Defense Wins Championships?
jamilladaniels chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
A Dominating Pair
jamilladaniels has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Antonio Brown and Drew Brees) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
Death, Taxes, and Antonio Brown's Reliable Hands
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 3
Brown is projected to catch an NFL-leading 110 balls this year.
- Dez Bryant, WR
- Round 2, Pick 18
Dez Bryant is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 94 projected catches rank sixth in the league.
If it Ain't Broke
- Todd Gurley, RB
- Round 3, Pick 23
Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, jamilladaniels didn't grab their first RB (Todd Gurley) until the third round.
A High-Volume Passer
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 4, Pick 38
Brees led the NFL in attempts, completions, and passing yardage last season. Among all QBs, only Brady and Rodgers appeared on more championship rosters than the future Hall-of-Famer in 2016.
Throwing Caution to the Wind
- Ty Montgomery, RB
- Round 5, Pick 43
They grabbed Ty Montgomery with the 43rd pick, even though his ADP is only 59.6 across all Yahoo! leagues.
While jamilladaniels is expected to be weak across three positions, TE is definitely their weakest unit and an area of need.
- Zach Miller
- Rank 190, ADP 135
- David Njoku
- Rank 198, ADP 132
- O.J. Howard
- Rank 205, ADP 124
- Jared Cook
- Rank 206, 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.
