Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. lolita's Team put together a quality team and is projected to finish in third-place in Yahoo Public 821267 League at 10-4-0 (1,554 points). They honed in on wide receivers early, using their top three selections to snag Julio Jones (8th overall), A.J. Green (13th), and Brandin Cooks (28th). These players will be heavily relied upon by lolita's Team, as they are the most prolific group of WRs in the league.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, lolita's 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 one of the softest slates. lolita's Team has the opportunity to finish the season on a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Apparently lolita's Team missed the point of drafting a back-up defense. In Week 6, both Seattle and Cincinnati will be on bye.
Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?
With eight "low-risk" players among their 15 picks, lolita's Team is looking for dependable help.
Veteran Mentors on the Bench
While the top half of the roster, from a projected points perspective, is relatively young (ranked No. 9 in the league with an average of 4.6 years of NFL experience), the bench is quite experienced (ranked No. 1 with 9.6 years).
lolita's Team elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
It's How You Finish
lolita's Team must have had a motivational halftime speech, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 1, Pick 8
Defenses Hate Him, Quarterbacks Love Him! Julio Jones is expected to catch almost everything this year, as his 94 projected receptions rank third in the league.
lolita's Team Gets Groovy With Green
- A.J. Green, WR
- Round 2, Pick 13
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.
On a Scale of 1 to America
- Brandin Cooks, WR
- Round 3, Pick 28
How free will Brandin Cooks be in the secondary? He's projected to rack up 1,231 receiving yards this year.
If it Ain't Broke
- C. McCaffrey, RB
- Round 4, Pick 33
Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, lolita's Team didn't grab their first RB (Christian McCaffrey) until the fourth round.
Better Lucky Than Good
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 5, Pick 48
The rest of Yahoo Public 821267 League overlooked a gem, and lolita's Team made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Andrew Luck.
If lolita's Team is interested in making a roster move, RB is one area they could improve.
- Doug Martin
- Rank 87, ADP 105
- Matt Forte
- Rank 95, ADP 113
- Danny Woodhead
- Rank 96, ADP 118
- Jonathan Stewart
- Rank 102, ADP 106

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.
