Schedule

Classless in Seattle should use Week 8 to ponder life's deeper mysteries, like can crop circles ever actually be crop squares? They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Classless in Seattle 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.

Draft Notes

  • Assessing the Assets

    TE is the strongest position for Classless in Seattle, though WR and K are also better than the league's average.

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, Classless in Seattle chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • Very Sneaky, Classless in Seattle

    They nabbed a sleeper in Deshaun Watson with pick No. 144.

  • Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, Classless in Seattle got a steal in the ninth round, when they selected Larry Fitzgerald (84th overall pick vs. ADP of 66.1).

  • Climbing The Ladder

    Currently in ninth place with 14,389 career receiving yards, Fitzgerald is just 904 yards away from moving all the way up to third place all-time. Only five WRs (Evans, Nelson, Brown, Cooper, Hilton) appeared on more championship rosters last season.

  • Digging Deep

    Theo Riddick is owned in only 6% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward Classless in Seattle for their faith! Or not.

Player Analysis

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Does Julio Jones Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

    • Round 2, Pick 17
    Is his Production Open-Sourced?

    • Amari Cooper, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 24
    Essentially Elite?

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 37
    All Systems Go?

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..."
