Gerge Costanza claimed he was a great quitter: "It's one of the few things I do well. I come from a long line of quitters. My father was a quitter, my grandfather was a quitter. I was raised to give up." We wonder if OBJYN, who's projected to finish in seventh place with a record of 5-7-1 (2,183 points), is cut from that same Costanza cloth? They went after guys who can tote the rock with their early picks, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs Devonta Freeman (first round), Christian McCaffrey (third round), and Joe Mixon (fifth round). They ultimately collected one of the bottom groups of WRs in the league, as they have Jordy Nelson, DeSean Jackson, Tyrell Williams, and Jamison Crowder on their team.
OBJYN should use Week 9 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like what was the greatest thing before sliced bread? No, seriously, think about it. It's better than thinking about fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have the hardest schedule. Along with having the most demanding overall schedule, OBJYN also has the league's second-toughest first four games and second-hardest last four games of the season.
A Pair of Strengths
OBJYN has two positional units projected to be better than the league average, RB and QB.
Close to the Vest
OBJYN was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 16 picks.
A Pair of Proven Winners
OBJYN has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jordy Nelson and Drew Brees) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, OBJYN chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
Very Sneaky, OBJYN
They nabbed a sleeper in Kevin White with pick No. 133.
If other Yahoo! users are right, OBJYN got a steal in the ninth round, when they selected Delanie Walker (88th overall pick vs. ADP of 68.6).
Turn Up The Volume
- D. Freeman, RB
- Round 1, Pick 8
With 272 touches, Devonta Freeman is projected to rank 10th in the NFL in that category. OBJYN demands more!
- Jordy Nelson, WR
- Round 2, Pick 13
Jordy Nelson returned to form last year after missing all of 2015. The Packers wideout led the league in red zone targets, and only Mike Evans appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters last season.
A Multifaceted Machine
- C. McCaffrey, RB
- Round 3, Pick 28
McCaffrey is a dual-threat back for OBJYN, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fourth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 587.
A High-Volume Passer
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 4, Pick 33
Brees led the NFL in attempts, completions, and passing yardage last season. Among all QBs, only Brady and Rodgers appeared on more championship rosters than the future Hall-of-Famer in 2016.
Was the 53rd Pick the Right Time for Jamison Crowder?
- J. Crowder, WR
- Round 6, Pick 53
OBJYN apparently believes it is. The Redskins' wide receiver is projected to net 209 points this year, after putting up 198 last year.
There are four positions that OBJYN could look to improve, including TE and K, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Cameron Brate
- Rank 132, ADP 131
- C.J. Fiedorowicz
- Rank 136, ADP 135
- Stephen Hauschka
- Rank 195, ADP 111
- Cairo Santos
- Rank 205, ADP 127

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..."
