Led by a Quality Group of RBs, Ganja_Gordon's Will Be a Tough Out

Draft Summary

Ganja_Gordon's figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the sixth overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 8-6-0 (2,205 points). With that record, they will likely finish fourth in Any Given Sunday League. They made it a point of focus to load up on pass-catchers, using four of their first seven selections to snag WRs Brandon Marshall (second round), Sammy Watkins (fourth round), Allen Hurns (sixth round), and Larry Fitzgerald (seventh round). They put together one of the best groups of RBs in the league, as they added David Johnson, Eddie Lacy, and Duke Johnson Jr.

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


Ganja_Gordon's should use Week 9 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why don't the pants worn by Dr. Bruce Banner rip when he transforms into the Hulk? It's better to think about that than pay attention to fantasy football. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. In addition to having the third-most grueling overall schedule, Ganja_Gordon's also has the toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Shouldering the Burden

    Ganja_Gordon's has five above-average positions with TE and RB projected to lead the way.

  • Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, Ganja_Gordon's got a steal in the 10th round, when they selected Blake Bortles (95th overall pick vs. ADP of 77.4).

  • Mr. Mendoza

    Tevin Coleman is owned in only 8% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Ganja_Gordon's has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • David Johnson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    Advanced Math

    If Ganja_Gordon's had a nickel for every time David Johnson is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 314 nickels.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    The Power of Persuasion

    Now would be a reasonable time for Ganja_Gordon's to encourage the Any Given Sunday League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Brandon Marshall and his 94 projected catches (ranked seventh in the NFL).

    • Jordan Reed, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 46
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

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

    • Allen Hurns, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 55
    Throwing Caution to the Wind

    They grabbed Allen Hurns with the 55th pick, even though his ADP is only 81.6 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • L. Fitzgerald, WR
    • Round 7, Pick 66
    Was Larry Fitzgerald Worth it at Pick No. 66?

    Ganja_Gordon's sure hopes so. The Cardinals' WR is projected to earn 234 points this year, after putting up 280 last season.

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..."
