Slated for a Second-Place Finish, jason l's Team is Loaded with Talent

Draft Summary

This draft by jason l's Team was like a finely tuned Peyton Manning-led offense, with all the pieces falling into place. Just like Peyton's offense, jason l's Team is expected to score a lot of points this season and finish second in Yahoo Public 631214 League at 11-3-0 (1,555 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on A.J. Green (second round), T.Y. Hilton (third round), and Golden Tate (fifth round). They also built one of the bottom duos of QBs in the league, as they have Carson Palmer and Tony Romo on the roster.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Week 9 might require some artful managing from jason l's Team. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the softest slates. Along with the third-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for jason l's Team.

Draft Notes

  • On Autopilot

    Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for jason l's Team, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (T.Y. Hilton) and fourth-ranked (Tyler Lockett) wideouts.

  • Sky's the Limit

    With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, jason l's Team hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Senior Citizen Discount

    With an average of 8.4 years of NFL experience, jason l's Team is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

    jason l's Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • Team of Winners

    jason l'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 (Adrian Peterson, Carson Palmer, and DeAngelo Williams).

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    jason l's Team nabbed a sleeper in Dwayne Allen with pick No. 129.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 9
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 323 touches, Adrian Peterson is projected to rank second in the NFL in that category. How touching, jason l's Team.

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 12
    184 More Reasons to Appreciate A.J. Green

    Green ranks sixth in the Yahoo Public 631214 League among WRs with 184 projected fantasy points.

    • Golden Tate, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 49
    Rethinking That One

    Golden Tate may not justify his 49th overall draft pick if projections hold true. Currently, he is estimated to fall outside the NFL's top-20 in both yards (22nd with 1,022) and TDs (27th with 6.8).

    • Carson Palmer, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 52
    Do You Know if Carson Palmer is Religious?

    With 298 projected points, jason l's Team is hoping Palmer will be the answer to their prayers.

    • Julius Thomas, TE
    • Round 7, Pick 69
    Was Julius Thomas Worth it at Pick No. 69?

    jason l's Team sure hopes so. The Jaguars' tight end is projected to improve to the tune of 100 points this year, after only putting up 76 last year.

Best Available

With three below-average positions on jason l's Team, TE and QB are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

    • Eric Ebron

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..."
