With a Projected Finish of Second, Hos' Team Has a Stacked Squad

Draft Summary

Hos' Team received the fifth pick in the draft and used it to build a juggernaut. The majority of the league will spend the season looking up at Hos' Team in the standings, as they are expected to finish second in The Non-Tim's SCN League with a record of 12-1-0 (2,130 points). With four RBs on the roster, Hos' Team has a quality backfield; their RBs are projected to average 179 points this season, close to the league average of 175. They wound up with the highest-scoring QB combo in the league, as they have Tom Brady and Andy Dalton 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.


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Hos' 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. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the weakest schedule. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, Hos' Team also has the league's easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Close to the Vest

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

  • Team of Winners

    Hos' Team is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Tom Brady, Jay Ajayi, and Jordan Reed).

  • The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Hos' Team got a steal in snatching Emmanuel Sanders in the ninth round (85th overall pick vs. ADP of 57.5).

  • Digging Deep

    Alex Smith is owned in only 4% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward Hos' Team for their faith! Or not.

Player Analysis

    • Tom Brady, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Brilliant Brady

    For the second consecutive year, Tom appeared on more championship rosters than any other QB. He's averaged 297.3 yards, 2.3 TDs, and 0.3 INTs per regular-season game over that stretch.

    • Jay Ajayi, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 16
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    Jay Ajayi was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

    • Michael Thomas, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 25
    Just Heave it to Michael Thomas

    Thomas ranks 10th in the The Non-Tim's SCN League among WRs with 231 projected fantasy points.

    • Marshawn Lynch, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 36
    Beast Mode is Back

    Averaging 1,339 rush yards and 12 rush TDs per year across four full seasons in Seattle (2011-14), Lynch returns to football behind one of the most talented offensive lines in the NFL.

    • Jordan Reed, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 56
    Rule 86

    When he's healthy, you start him. Despite taking a noticeable step back from his outstanding 2015 campaign, Reed continued rewarding owners last year. Among all NFL tight ends, only Jimmy Graham appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters.

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..."
