Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, Peter's Team Will Battle Every Week

Draft Summary

Peter's Team figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the fifth overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 8-5-0 (1,902 points). With that record, they will likely finish fourth in LECOM League. After exiting the draft with six RBs on the roster, Peter's Team is set at that position heading into the season. Their RBs are projected to average 159 points this season, right around the league average of 154. They also landed one of the best groups of RBs in the league, as they have Mark Ingram, Matt Forte, Giovani Bernard, and Rashad Jennings for their rotation.

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


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Peter's Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have an easier-than-average schedule. Along with the fifth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Peter's Team.

Draft Notes

  • Stockpiling Talent at TE

    Peter's Team should be in good shape with four position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE is definitely the strongest among them.

  • Decent Idea, Mediocre Execution

    Peter's Team will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 9, as their only TE (Rob Gronkowski) and only DEF (New England) will both be idle that week.

  • Close to the Vest

    Peter's Team was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing eight "low-risk" players out of 17 picks.

  • A Dominating Pair

    Peter's Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Rob Gronkowski and Mark Ingram) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Peter's Team nabbed a sleeper in Phillip Dorsett with pick No. 188.

  • Put All Your Eggs in One Basket

    And then watch that basket. Ignoring roster depth, Peter's Team chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

Player Analysis

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    A Repeat for Rob

    For the second straight year, Gronkowski appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than any other TE.

    • Mark Ingram, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 282 touches, Mark Ingram is projected to rank 10th in the NFL in that category. How touching, Peter's Team.

    • Donte Moncrief, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 53
    Rethinking That One

    Donte Moncrief went with the 53rd pick, even though he's projected to fall outside of the top-20 in the NFL in both receiving TDs (23rd) and receiving yards (25th) with 7.2 and 1,006 respectively.

    • Eli Manning, QB
    • Round 6, Pick 68
    Do You Know if Eli Manning is Religious?

    With 300 projected points, Peter's Team is hoping Manning will be the answer to their prayers.

    • G. Bernard, RB
    • Round 7, Pick 77
    Apparently ADP is Overrated

    With their seventh-round pick, Peter's Team pulled the trigger. They took Giovani Bernard at pick number 77 despite an ADP of just 103.5 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Best Available

WR and K are expected to be the weakest positions for Peter's Team and a potential area of need.

    • Josh Doctson
    • Rank 161, ADP 117
    • Kendall Wright
    • Rank 184, ADP 132
    • Connor Barth

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..."
