Led by a Talented WR Corps, Happy Hour's Team Has the Studs to Reach Playoffs

Draft Summary

Happy Hour's Team took a high draft pick and turned it into a playoff-caliber squad with a projected record of 9-5-0 (1,571). They should be able to roll through most of Yahoo Public 795587 League on their way to a projected fourth-place finish. With their first five picks, Happy Hour's Team aimed for balance, selecting QB Andrew Luck (37th overall), RBs Jamaal Charles (24th) and Matt Forte (44th), and WRs Julio Jones (4th) and Brandon Marshall (17th). They put together the top group of WRs in the league, as they have Jones, Marshall, Jarvis Landry, and Tyler Lockett on their team.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Week 11 is not looking like a fun one for fantasy football. Happy Hour's Team should look into the joys of scrapbooking, or bird-watching, or just anything that isn't fantasy football. It might not be pretty. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a weaker-than-average slate. In addition to having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, Happy Hour's Team has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Stockpiling Talent at WR

    Happy Hour's Team should be in good shape with three position groups projected to be better-than-average. WR is definitely the strongest among them.

  • Up and Comers

    Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and Happy Hour's Team may have done just that, with five players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.

  • A Dominating Pair

    Happy Hour's Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Julio Jones and Brandon Marshall) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Full Control Early On

    Happy Hour's Team began things with a bang, nabbing the most projected points in the league during the draft's first half.

Player Analysis

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Just Heave it to Julio

    The lone NFL player to see 200 targets last season, only DeAndre Hopkins appeared on more championship rosters than Jones in 2015.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    177 Reasons for Happy Hour's Team to Appreciate Brandon Marshall

    Marshall ranks eighth in the Yahoo Public 795587 League among WRs with 177 projected fantasy points.

    • Jamaal Charles, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 24
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

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

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 37
    Do You Know if Andrew Luck is Religious?

    With 316 projected points, Happy Hour's Team is hoping Luck will be the answer to their prayers.

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 57
    Jumping on Jarvis:

    Happy Hour's Team may see some WR1 potential in Landry, who was one of three players (along with Julio Jones and Antonio Brown) to see double-digit targets in each of the final four weeks of 2015.

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..."
