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.
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.
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.
Just Heave it to Julio
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 1, Pick 3
The lone NFL player to see 200 targets last season, only DeAndre Hopkins appeared on more first-place rosters than Jones in 2015.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Brandin Cooks, WR
- Round 2, Pick 22
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Brandin Cooks was the weakest value pick of the round.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 3, Pick 27
LeSean McCoy was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
Like Elway in His Prime
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 5, Pick 51
Drew Brees is projected to lead the NFL in both passing yards (4,839) and passing TDs (31.9).
A Bit of a Reach
- Tyler Lockett, WR
- Round 6, Pick 70
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.
If allaboutthejoo-joo is looking to make a roster move, TE is a position they could look to upgrade first.
- Jordan Cameron
- Rank 169, ADP 134
- Ladarius Green
- Rank 174, ADP 120
- Austin Seferian-Jenkins
- Rank 197, ADP 129
- Richard Rodgers
- Rank 205, ADP 123

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.
