Led by a Talented WR Corps, allaboutthejoo-joo is Built to Win

Draft Summary

Rome wasn't built in a day, but allaboutthejoo-joo built a Roman Empire-esque roster. They are projected to go 9-4-0 (1,916 points) and finish in second. If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Julio Jones (first round), Brandin Cooks (second round), and Eric Decker (fourth round). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, allaboutthejoo-joo will benefit. They are one of the most prolific groups of WRs in the league.

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.

Schedule

allaboutthejoo-joo should use Week 5 to consider life's great mysteries, like why there's only one word for thesaurus. That's still time better spent than checking fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a harder-than-average schedule. In addition to having the sixth-most grueling overall schedule, allaboutthejoo-joo also has the most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Strength in Numbers

    WR is the best position for allaboutthejoo-joo, though QB and K are also stronger-than-average.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    allaboutthejoo-joo grabbed a sleeper in Breshad Perriman with pick No. 195.

  • He Can Catch, Too

    Charles Sims is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fourth among RBs with 537 projected receiving yards.

  • allaboutthejoo-joo Went All YOLO Here

    Grabbing Breshad Perriman at pick 195 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Perriman is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

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.

    • Brandin Cooks, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 22
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, Brandin Cooks was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 27
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

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

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 51
    Like Elway in His Prime

    Drew Brees is projected to lead the NFL in both passing yards (4,839) and passing TDs (31.9).

    • Tyler Lockett, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 70
    A Bit of a Reach

    allaboutthejoo-joo went out on a limb with their sixth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Tyler Lockett has an ADP of 86.5, but he was grabbed at pick No. 70. Patience is a virtue, allaboutthejoo-joo.

Best Available

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..."
