Chock-Full of WR Talent, jonathan's Team Will be a Tough Team

Draft Summary

Picking sixth, jonathan's Team put together a team that is expected to finish the season in a favorable spot. There's something to be said for a GM who flipped a bottom of the barrel pick into a projected fourth-place finish in The Non-Tim's SCN League (8-5-0, 2,051 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Jameis Winston (15th overall), RB Todd Gurley (26th), WR Antonio Brown (6th), and TE Travis Kelce (46th) within the first five rounds. When the dust settled, they'd ultimately landed one of the highest-scoring groups of WRs in the league, as they have Brown, T.Y. Hilton, and Allen Robinson on the roster.

You're close to greatness. And if being close isn't good enough for you, you might be worthy of the Toyota Hall of Fame. Nominate yourself now.


Week 11 might require some artful managing from jonathan's Team. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-difficult-than-average schedule. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first month and final month of the season project to be close to league-average in terms of difficulty for jonathan's Team.

Draft Notes

  • A Talented Trio

    jonathan's Team has three positions on their roster that are stronger than the league's average (QB, TE, and WR).

  • The Best Player Plays

    jonathan's Team is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 5.1 years of NFL experience.

  • Close to the Vest

    jonathan's Team was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing nine "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • Team of Champions?

    jonathan's Team is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Antonio Brown, T.Y. Hilton, and Justin Tucker.

  • The Bargain Whisperer

    jonathan's Team was hunting for steals throughout the draft, snapping up a trio of bargains in the first 9 rounds (T.Y. Hilton, Allen Robinson, and Travis Kelce).

  • Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in The Non-Tim's SCN League, jonathan's Team may have found a gem in Ted Ginn Jr. Including his 715 projected return yards, he ranks sixth in the league with 1,605 all-purpose yards.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    Ask And You Shall Receive

    Frequently the No. 1 overall pick last year, Brown lived up to the hype. Among all wide receivers, only Mike Evans and Jordy Nelson appeared on more championship rosters than Brown last season.

    • Jameis Winston, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Jameis Winston had less value than any other pick of the round.

    • Todd Gurley, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 26
    Wait For It

    jonathan's Team held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to snag their "lead back" (Todd Gurley).

    • Dak Prescott, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 35
    Time to Sign Up for Andy Behrens' Fantasy Camp

    Dak Prescott isn't projected to be in the NFL's top-15 in either passing yards (16th with 3,990) or TDs (17th with 25.6), but jonathan's Team still snagged him with the 35th pick.

    • Travis Kelce, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 46
    jonathan's Team Hops Aboard the Travis Train

    Though KC's offense attempted the eighth-fewest passes in the league, only two tight ends (Rudolph and Olsen) saw more targets than Kelce last season.

Best Available

While jonathan's Team is projected to have three subpar positions, RB is clearly their weakest unit and should be upgraded first.

    • Spencer Ware
    • Rank 90, ADP 61
    • Thomas Rawls
    • Rank 106, ADP 120
    • Duke Johnson Jr.

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..."
