Discount Double CHEK is projected to finish fifth in RISE UP League with a record of 7-7-0 (1,092 points). While that is pretty good, pretty good wasn't enough for John Fox in Denver, and it shouldn't be for you. If you're not first, you're last. With their first five picks, Discount Double CHEK aimed for balance, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (6th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (15th) and C.J. Anderson (35th), and WRs Sammy Watkins (26th) and Donte Moncrief (46th). They also built one of the highest-scoring RB pairs in the league, as they have Peterson and Anderson to carry the load.
Discount Double CHEK took advantage of their only keeper slot to hold on to Aaron Rodgers (25.9 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is less valuable than a first-round draft pick.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Discount Double CHEK has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the entire season, they have an easier-than-average slate. Discount Double CHEK has the opportunity to start and finish with a flurry, as both the first four games and final four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Discount Double CHEK has four positions that are better than league average. While QB, DEF, and K are projected to be good, RB is the strongest on Discount Double CHEK.
Discount Double CHEK minimized risk by choosing six consistent players among their 15 picks.

A Super Duper Signal-Caller
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 1, Pick 6
Aaron Rodgers is projected to rack up 268 points this year, enough to rank second among all QBs.
Adrian Peterson Doesn't Read the Playbook
- A. Peterson, RB
- Round 2, Pick 15
The playbook reads him. Discount Double CHEK should be in decent shape if Peterson gets his 336 projected touches this year.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Sammy Watkins, WR
- Round 3, Pick 26
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Sammy Watkins was the weakest value pick of the round.
Taking a Chance
- Donte Moncrief, WR
- Round 5, Pick 46
With their fifth-round pick, Discount Double CHEK threw caution to the wind. They took Donte Moncrief at pick number 46 despite an ADP of 58.1 across all Yahoo! leagues.
A Big, Strong Threat
- Greg Olsen, TE
- Round 6, Pick 55
Greg Olsen ranks third in the RISE UP League among TEs with 89 projected fantasy points. If the pundits are wrong and he places outside the top-10, Discount Double CHEK could be on the outside looking in come playoff time.
If Discount Double CHEK wants to upgrade, TE and WR are areas they could go after first.
- Jimmy Graham
- Rank 135, ADP 121
- Zach Miller
- Rank 140, ADP 136
- Kevin White
- Rank 117, ADP 112

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.
