With Too Many Reaches Early, Scoop's Super Team Isn't Anything to Fear

Draft Summary

While Scoop's Super Team is no team for the ages, this is a squad that could potentially reach the playoffs if some things go their way. Picking 10th overall, Scoop's Super Team is projected to land in eighth place in 28-3 League with a record of 6-7-0 (1,362 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Tom Brady (10th overall), RB Mark Ingram (58th), WR Doug Baldwin (15th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (34th) within the first five rounds. They ultimately have the worst group of WRs in the league, as they added Baldwin, DeAndre Hopkins and Eric Decker to their rotation.

You're close to greatness. And if being close isn't good enough for you, you might be worthy of the Toyota Hall of Fame. Nominate yourself now.


Week 9 might require some waiver-wire magic from Scoop's Super Team. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. Along with having the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Scoop's Super Team also has the toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Like Choosing your Favorite Kardashian

    Scoop's Super Team will have some tricky calls to make each week at RB, with a slim projected points difference between their third- (LeGarrette Blount), fourth- (Matt Forte), and fifth-ranked (Frank Gore) RBs.

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    Scoop's Super Team drafted top-3 players at a trio of different positions (Rob Gronkowski, Tom Brady, and Stephen Gostkowski).

  • Carrying the Load

    Scoop's Super Team has four above-average positions with QB and TE projected to lead the way.

  • Get Off My Lawn

    With an average of 8.5 years of NFL experience, Scoop's Super Team is the oldest and by default, least exciting team in 28-3 League.

  • Good to Have Balance, Right?

    While the bottom half of the Scoop's Super Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 3), the top half is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).

  • A Dominating Pair

    Scoop's Super Team has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Tom Brady and LeGarrette Blount) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

Player Analysis

    • Round 1, Pick 10

    • Round 5, Pick 58
    How Rebellious of You

    • L. Blount, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 63
    Taking a Chance

    With their sixth-round pick, Scoop's Super Team threw caution to the wind. They took LeGarrette Blount at pick number 63 despite an ADP of 90.3 across all Yahoo! leagues.

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..."
