Picking late (sixth overall), Doctor Doctor did what they could with what they were given. While this team isn't a juggernaut by any means, it's a team capable of reaching the playoffs if the chips fall their way. They are expected to finish third in Masters of the Gridiron with a record of 9-4-0 (1,595 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Drew Brees (26th overall), RB Le'Veon Bell (15th), WR Julio Jones (6th), and TE Greg Olsen (46th) within the first five rounds. They put together the top TE duo in the league, as they added Olsen and Martellus Bennett.
Week 9 might require some artful managing from Doctor Doctor. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the softest schedules. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, Doctor Doctor also has the league's second-easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.
TE is the strongest position for Doctor Doctor, but QB and DEF are also stronger than the league average at those positions.
Sky's the Limit
With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Doctor Doctor hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.
Charles Sims is owned in only 9% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Doctor Doctor has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.
A Versatile Combination
Charles Sims can hurt opponents with his hands as well as his feet. He ranks fourth among RBs with 535 projected receiving yards.
Just Heave it to Julio
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 1, Pick 6
The lone NFL player to see 200 targets last season, only DeAndre Hopkins appeared on more championship rosters than Jones in 2015.
Returning to Excellence
- Le'Veon Bell, RB
- Round 2, Pick 15
He played in only six games, but Bell joined Adrian Peterson as the only NFL running backs to rush for 90+ yards per game last season.
It's a Bold Strategy Cotton, Let's See if it Pays Off
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 3, Pick 26
Drew Brees has an ADP of only 45.6 across all Yahoo! leagues, and wasn't quite worth the 26th overall pick.
Better Lucky Than Good?
- Greg Olsen, TE
- Round 5, Pick 46
The rest of Masters of the Gridiron League overlooked a gem, and Doctor Doctor made the highest value pick of the round by taking Greg Olsen.
Was Golden Tate the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 55?
- Golden Tate, WR
- Round 6, Pick 55
Doctor Doctor apparently thinks so. The Lions' wideout is projected to earn 152 points this year, after putting up 119 last year.
There are three positions that Doctor Doctor could look to improve, including K and WR, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Josh Brown
- Rank 217, ADP 136
- Cairo Santos
- Rank 220, ADP 142
- Kevin White
- Rank 117, ADP 112
- Michael Thomas
- Rank 119, 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.
