Despite an Exciting Set of WRs, Andres's Team Still Has Work To Do

Draft Summary

What's important Andres's Team is that you have fun, regardless of the final score. Like that quote from Vince Lombardi, "Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing." Oh wait no, that's not the right quote for this. Turns out there aren't many quotes about having fun and losing, so let's just get to the projections. Andres's Team is expected to finish sixth in Stupid loser League with a record of 5-9-0 (1,531 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Julio Jones (first round), Jordy Nelson (fourth round), and T.Y. Hilton (fifth round). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, Andres's Team will benefit. They are one of the highest-scoring groups of WRs in the league.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.

Schedule

Andres's Team should use Week 11 to finally build that mini trainyard. Really just about anything other than checking fantasy football will do. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Andres's Team has the opportunity to come out firing, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • Maybe You Should Add Tony Gonzalez While You're At It

    Andres's Team must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 13, both Delanie Walker and Gary Barnidge will be on bye.

  • Shouldering the Burden?

    Andres's Team has three above-average positions on their roster: RB, WR, and QB.

  • Risk Averse

    Andres's Team minimized risk by choosing seven consistent players among their 15 picks.

  • Senior Citizen Discount

    With an average of 8 years of NFL experience, Andres's Team is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the Andres's Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 7).

  • Team of Champions

    Andres's Team is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Julio Jones, Devonta Freeman, and Gary Barnidge).

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.

    • Lamar Miller, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 311 touches, Lamar Miller is projected to rank sixth in the NFL in that category. How touching, Andres's Team.

    • Le'Veon Bell, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 19
    Returning to Excellence

    He played in only six games, but Bell joined Adrian Peterson as the only NFL running backs to rush for 90+ yards per game last season.

    • Jordy Nelson, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 30

    • Drew Brees, QB

    Like Marino in His Prime

    Drew Brees is projected to lead the NFL in both passing yards (4,799) and passing TDs (31.3).

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..."
