Picking late (seventh overall), Mitchell's Team did what they could with what they were given. While this team isn't a juggernaut by any means, it's a team capable of reaching the playoffs if the chips fall their way. They are expected to finish fourth in Yahoo Public 828456 with a record of 9-5-0 (1,579 points). With this kind of investment in the WR position by Mitchell's Team, they can only hope this trio resembles "The Greatest Show on Turf." They used their first three picks to draft Julio Jones in the first round (7th overall), Allen Robinson in the second (14th), and Brandin Cooks in the third (27th). These guys could be the key to the season for Mitchell's Team, as they are the best group of WRs in the league.
Mitchell's Team should use Week 5 to finally read War and Peace. Anything that isn't following their fantasy football team. 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 more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with having the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Mitchell's Team has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.
Maybe You Should Add Tony Gonzalez While You're At It
Mitchell's Team must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 13, both Delanie Walker and Gary Barnidge will be on bye.
Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for Mitchell's Team, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Brandin Cooks) and fourth-ranked (Torrey Smith) wideouts.
Mitchell's Team minimized risk by choosing six consistent players among their 15 picks.
Tread Left on the Tires
With an average of 7.8 years of NFL experience, Mitchell's Team is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.
Team of Champions
Mitchell's Team is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Julio Jones, Allen Robinson, and Gary Barnidge).
Mitchell's Team elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
Just Heave it to Julio
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 1, Pick 7
The lone NFL player to see 200 targets last season, only DeAndre Hopkins appeared on more first-place rosters than Jones in 2015.
171 More Reasons to Appreciate Allen Robinson
- Allen Robinson, WR
- Round 2, Pick 14
Robinson ranks ninth in the Yahoo Public 828456 League among WRs with 171 projected fantasy points.
How Rebellious of You
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 4, Pick 34
Mitchell's Team said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (LeSean McCoy).
Like Elway in His Prime
- Drew Brees, QB
- Round 5, Pick 47
Drew Brees is projected to lead the NFL in both passing yards (4,802) and passing TDs (31.5).
Let Me Check it Again
- Jeremy Hill, RB
- Round 6, Pick 54
Why can't I find Jeremy Hill on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late-round flier."
With three subpar positions on Mitchell's Team, DEF and TE are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Philadelphia Defense
- Rank 217, ADP 142
- Green Bay Defense
- Rank 246, ADP 133
- Ladarius Green

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.
