If there was a Hall of Average, boorules's Team would have a plaque. Unfortunately, there isn't, so instead they'll just have to settle for losing more often than not. This team is projected to finish in seventh-place in Yahoo Public 795499 League at 5-9-0 (1,509 points). They felt they could wait on quarterback, holding out until the eighth round to secure Kirk Cousins with the 74th overall selection. They ended up landing one of the lowest-scoring groups of RBs in the league, as they have Jay Ajayi, Doug Martin, Mike Gillislee, and Danny Woodhead on their team.
boorules's Team should use Week 11 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why do we park in a driveway but drive on a parkway? It will be better to think about that than to check fantasy football. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a harder-than-average schedule. In addition to having the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, boorules's Team has the second-hardest last four games of the season.
Shouldering the Burden
boorules's Team has four above-average positions with WR and TE projected to lead the way.
Up and Comers
Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and boorules's Team may have done just that, with four players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.
The coach of boorules's Team might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted (Kirk Cousins) and second-drafted (Dak Prescott) QBs have very similar seasonal point projections.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Fan?
boorules's Team is a believer in the hopes of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season, grabbing a couple of players on that team sooner than their ADPs might suggest.
It appears that boorules's Team likes to gamble, as they took chances on six volatile selections.
This is the American version, folks. boorules's Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.
Jay Ajayi Doesn't Read the Playbook
- Jay Ajayi, RB
- Round 1, Pick 7
The playbook reads him. boorules's Team should be in decent shape if Ajayi gets his 308 projected touches this year.
- Jordy Nelson, WR
- Round 2, Pick 14
Jordy Nelson returned to form last year after missing all of 2015. The Packers wideout led the league in red zone targets, and only Mike Evans appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters last season.
Better Lucky Than Good?
- Rob Gronkowski, TE
- Round 3, Pick 27
The rest of Yahoo Public 795499 League overlooked a gem, and boorules's Team made the highest value pick of the round by taking Rob Gronkowski.
- Mike Gillislee, RB
- Round 4, Pick 34
With their fourth-round pick, boorules's Team pulled the trigger. They drafted Mike Gillislee at pick number 34 despite an ADP of just 76.7 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Take One Play Off and He Burns You
- DeSean Jackson, WR
- Round 6, Pick 54
DeSean Jackson picks up yardage in bunches, ranking fourth among NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 4.3.
If boorules's Team has a desire to make a roster move, RB and K are areas of need.
- Matt Forte
- Rank 95, ADP 112
- Jonathan Stewart
- Rank 102, ADP 104
- Sebastian Janikowski
- Rank 203, ADP 104
- Brandon McManus
- Rank 209, ADP 122

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.
