With the first pick in the draft, Loren's Team selects JaMarcus Russell. OK not quite, but they might as well have. Despite being gifted a favorable draft position, Loren's Team is expected to have some issues, finishing 10th in Yahoo Public 795587 League with a record of 0-14-0 (1,336 points). They ensured WR depth would be a non-issue, as they have five WRs on the roster. However, production might be the problem. Their receivers are projected to average 115 points this year, fewer than the league average of 144. They ended up with the bottom group of RBs in the league, as they added Doug Martin, Frank Gore, Charles Sims, and Marshawn Lynch.
Week 6 might require some artful managing from Loren's Team. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the hardest schedule. Along with the most taxing overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Loren's Team.
Believing in the Buccaneers
The fantasy hopes of Loren's Team will rest heavily on the fortunes of Jameis Winston's crew, as they loaded up with five Bucs on their roster.
Like 10,000 Spoons When All You Need Is A Knife
Loren's Team's only above-average positional grouping is DEF.
Loren's Team may have to rely on a Ouija board each week. Their top-drafted QB (Jameis Winston) and second-drafted QB (Tyrod Taylor) have fairly similar seasonal point projections.
Get Off My Lawn
With an average of 7.4 years of NFL experience, Loren's Team is the oldest and by default, least exciting team in the league.
Loren's Team accumulated the fewest projected points in the first half of the draft, and didn't exactly right the ship, grabbing the fewest points in the draft's second half, as well.
Batman Needs Robin
Just like Doug Martin needs Charles Sims. Loren's Team hedged their bets by snagging a couple of teammates with their second-round and 14th-round selections.
Throwing Caution to the Wind
- Roberto Aguayo, K
- Round 1, Pick 1
They grabbed Roberto Aguayo with the first pick, even though his ADP is only 132 across all Yahoo! leagues.
He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy
- Doug Martin, RB
- Round 2, Pick 20
With 297 touches, Doug Martin is projected to rank sixth in the NFL in that category. How touching, Loren's Team.
Time to Sign Up for Andy Behrens' Fantasy Camp
- Jameis Winston, QB
- Round 4, Pick 40
Despite being selected 40th overall, Jameis Winston is not projected among the NFL's top-15 in either passing TDs (19th with 24) or passing yards (19th with 3,928).
Milk Was a Bad Choice
- M. Crabtree, WR
- Round 6, Pick 60
And so was drafting Michael Crabtree, the weakest value of the round.
Was Anquan Boldin Worth it at Pick No. 61?
- Anquan Boldin, WR
- Round 7, Pick 61
Loren's Team sure hopes so. The Lions' WR is only predicted to have 73 points this year, after producing 101 last season.
While Loren's Team is expected to be weak across five positions, RB is definitely their weakest unit and an area of need.
- Isaiah Crowell
- Rank 112, ADP 126
- Tevin Coleman
- Rank 117, ADP 128
- Jay Ajayi
- Rank 118, ADP 95
- Justin Forsett
- Rank 120, ADP 114

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.
