With the right set of circumstances, young Zo's Team could potentially make the playoffs. A tough draft spot led to a fairly tough draft. Picking ninth overall, they're projected to land in sixth place in Yahoo Public 795499 League with a record of 6-8-0 (1,514 points). They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Mike Evans (first round), A.J. Green (second round), and Demaryius Thomas (fourth round). These guys could be the key to the season for young Zo's Team, as they are the highest-scoring group of WRs in the league.
While Week 9 has the most players on bye for young Zo's Team (four), Week 8 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Taking a look at the season from start to finish, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, both the first month and final month of the season project to be close to league-average in terms of difficulty for young Zo's Team.
A Talented Trio
young Zo's Team has three above-average positions on their roster (TE, DEF, and WR).
May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor
young Zo's Team might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted (Jameis Winston) and second-drafted (Blake Bortles) QBs have similar seasonal point projections.
young Zo's Team minimized risk by choosing seven consistent players among their 15 picks.
Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up
young Zo's Team got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.
Defense Wins Championships?
Hoping to play the favorable matchups week-to-week, young Zo's Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
A Dominating Pair
young Zo's Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Mike Evans and Jimmy Graham) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
- Mike Evans, WR
- Round 1, Pick 9
Second only to Jordy Nelson in receiving TDs last season, Evans appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than any other wide receiver.
young Zo's Team Gets Groovy With Green
- A.J. Green, WR
- Round 2, Pick 12
A.J. averaged 11.0 targets, 7.3 receptions, and 107.1 yards in nine games prior to getting injured in Week 11 last year. The 29-year-old Bengals star is healthy and primed for a big campaign this season.
How Rebellious of You
- Isaiah Crowell, RB
- Round 3, Pick 29
young Zo's Team said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Isaiah Crowell).
Let's Call it a Learning Experience
- Ty Montgomery, RB
- Round 5, Pick 49
Hey, remember that time young Zo's Team took Ty Montgomery WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Montgomery was the weakest value pick of the round.
Back To His Old Ways
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 6, Pick 52
A relative bargain at his ADP last year, no tight end appeared on more championship rosters than Jimmy Graham.
With three below-average positions on young Zo's Team, RB and QB are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Matt Forte
- Rank 95, ADP 112
- Jonathan Stewart
- Rank 102, ADP 104
- Carson Palmer
- Rank 132, ADP 130
- Ryan Tannehill
- Rank 145, ADP 129

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.
