Sometimes in life we make mistakes. Pork Pie will hopefully use this one as a learning opportunity, so in future drafts they will perform much better. After selecting seventh overall, they are projected to go 5-9-0 (1,679 points) and finish eighth in Beat the Brits League. They loaded up on pass-catching weapons early on, using four of their first seven selections to acquire WRs Allen Robinson (second round), Demaryius Thomas (fourth round), Kelvin Benjamin (sixth round), and Allen Hurns (seventh round). They ended up with the top group of RBs in the league, as they have Ezekiel Elliott, Devonta Freeman, and Rashad Jennings on the roster.
Week 8 might require some waiver-wire magic from Pork Pie. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have the most difficult slate. In addition to having the most demanding overall schedule, Pork Pie also has the league's toughest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.
Pork Pie has five stronger-than-average positions with QB and DEF projected to lead the way.
I Keep Getting Older
And they stay the same age. Pork Pie isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 5.1 years of NFL experience.
Root, Root, Root for the Home Team
Pork Pie is a believer in the hopes of the New York Giants this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.
No Back-Up No Cry
Ignoring roster depth, Pork Pie chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).
Team of Champions?
Pork Pie is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Allen Robinson, Devonta Freeman, and Gary Barnidge.
Gary the Great
Drafting for last year's results is risky, but among all TEs in 2015, Barnidge ranked fourth in both TDs and yardage, third in receptions, and second in targets.
He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy
- E. Elliott, RB
- Round 1, Pick 7
With 293 touches, Ezekiel Elliott is projected to rank ninth in the NFL in that category. How touching, Pork Pie.
177 Excuses to Cheer for Allen Robinson
- Allen Robinson, WR
- Round 2, Pick 14
Robinson ranks ninth in the Beat the Brits League among wideouts with 177 projected fantasy points.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- D. Freeman, RB
- Round 3, Pick 27
Devonta Freeman was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
A Super Duper Signal-Caller
- Andrew Luck, QB
- Round 5, Pick 47
Andrew Luck is projected to rack up 319 points this year, enough to rank third among all QBs.
Was the 67th Pick the Right Time for Allen Hurns?
- Allen Hurns, WR
- Round 7, Pick 67
Pork Pie apparently believes it is. The Jaguars' wide receiver is only predicted to have 125 points this year, after producing 161 last year.
Pork Pie has one below-average position, WR, that they should attempt to upgrade.
- Phillip Dorsett
- Rank 120, ADP 134
- Chris Hogan
- Rank 121, ADP 129
- Rishard Matthews
- Rank 144, ADP 132
- Sammie Coates
- Rank 149, ADP 132

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.
