Justin's Secret Team put together an underrated roster that might not dominate week in and week out, but will be firmly entrenched in a playoff spot by season's end. They're projected to finish the season with an 11-6-0 (2,781) record in Niverville Fantasy Football League, which will be good enough for second. With their first five picks, Justin's Secret Team aimed for balance, selecting QB Cam Newton (2nd overall), RBs Jamaal Charles (11th) and Adrian Peterson (14th), and WRs Sammy Watkins (23rd) and Alshon Jeffery (26th). They also have the highest-scoring group of RBs in the league, as they added Peterson, Charles, and C.J. Anderson.
Justin's Secret Team used both of their keeper spots to retain Jamaal Charles (20.1 ADP) and Cam Newton (20.5 ADP). From an ADP perspective, their top-ranked keeper (Jamaal Charles) is less valuable than a first-round draft choice. Overall, the two keepers on Justin's Secret Team are projected to be clearly less productive (by 19.5%) than the draft picks they replaced.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Justin's Secret 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. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the weakest slates. In addition to having the second-easiest overall schedule, Justin's Secret Team also has the league's second-easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.
Stockpiling Talent at TE
Justin's Secret Team should be in good shape with four position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE is definitely the strongest among them.
Carolina Panthers Fan?
Justin's Secret Team reached twice to draft a Carolina Panthers player.
Batman Needs Robin
Just like Jamaal Charles needs Spencer Ware. Justin's Secret Team hedged their bets by snagging a couple of teammates with their second-round and 19th-round selections.
A Pair of Proven Winners
Justin's Secret Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Cam Newton and Adrian Peterson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
Justin's Secret Team nabbed a sleeper in Robert Griffin III with pick No. 107.
The Bargain Whisperer
Justin's Secret Team was hunting for steals throughout the draft, snapping up a trio of bargains in the first 11 rounds (C.J. Anderson, Julian Edelman, and Demaryius Thomas).
Did Justin's Secret Team Just Dab?
- Cam Newton, QB
- Round 1, Pick 2
Among QBs last season, only Tom Brady appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than the reigning league MVP.
Feed Him the Rock
- Jamaal Charles, RB
- Round 2, Pick 11
And watch Jamaal Charles go. With 244 projected fantasy points, he's supposed to be the fifth-best RB in the league this season.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- A. Peterson, RB
- Round 3, Pick 14
Adrian Peterson was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
- Sammy Watkins, WR
- Round 4, Pick 23
Justin's Secret Team chose a WR who's highly likely to turn a deep ball into TD gold. Sammy Watkins is projected to rank fourth among NFL WRs in plays over 40 yards with 6.6 and TDs over 40 yards with 2.5.
214 More Reasons to Appreciate Alshon Jeffery
- Alshon Jeffery, WR
- Round 5, Pick 26
Jeffery ranks eighth in the Niverville Fantasy Football League among WRs with 214 projected fantasy points.
Justin's Secret Team has one weak area, WR, that they may want to improve.

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.
