Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, 1000FOOTCROTCH Wins at Fantasy Football and Life

Draft Summary

Drafting 12th, 1000FOOTCROTCH took advantage of their weaker opponents and drafted a team capable of making some noise come playoff time. They are expected to finish third in Morris Deals with a record of 10-3-0 (1,654 points). They loaded up on running backs early and often, using four of their first seven picks to snatch up RBs Adrian Peterson (first round), Doug Martin (second round), Arian Foster (sixth round) and Rashad Jennings (seventh round). These players will be heavily relied upon by 1000FOOTCROTCH, as they are the best group of RBs in the league.

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

Schedule

While Week 8 has the most players on bye for 1000FOOTCROTCH (four), Week 6 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for 1000FOOTCROTCH.

Draft Notes

  • Drink Plenty of Milk

    With an average of 7.7 years of NFL experience, 1000FOOTCROTCH has the greatest chance of losing a player to osteoporosis.

  • Root, Root, Root for the Home Team

    1000FOOTCROTCH is a believer in the hopes of the Philadelphia Eagles this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.

  • Risk Averse

    1000FOOTCROTCH minimized risk by choosing seven consistent players among their 16 picks.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    1000FOOTCROTCH has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Adrian Peterson and Doug Martin) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, 1000FOOTCROTCH chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • Don't Get Too Defensive Over This

    But 1000FOOTCROTCH drafted Philadelphia with the 108th pick, even though their ADP is only 142.4 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 12
    Peterson is Hungry

    And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank second in the NFL with 323 touches.

    • Doug Martin, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    Old Fashioned

    1000FOOTCROTCH stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Adrian Peterson and Doug Martin before targeting other positions.

    • Doug Baldwin, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 36
    Rethinking That One

    Doug Baldwin went with the 36th pick, but is projected to fall outside of the top-30 in the NFL in both receiving TDs (32nd) and receiving yards (31st) with 6.4 and 950 respectively.

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 37
    A Super Duper Signal-Caller

    Andrew Luck is projected to rack up 300 points this year, enough to rank fifth among all QBs.

    • Arian Foster, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 61
    Was Arian Foster the Best Choice at Pick No. 61?

    1000FOOTCROTCH apparently thinks so. The Dolphins' RB is projected to put up 135 points this year, after only netting 55 last season.

Best Available

With four below-average positions on 1000FOOTCROTCH, WR and DEF are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.

    • Bruce Ellington
    • Rank 140, ADP 130
    • Terrance Williams
    • Rank 147, ADP 124
    • Oakland Defense
    • Rank 194, ADP 122
    • Buffalo Defense
    • Rank 199, ADP 129

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..."
