With a Projected Finish of Eighth, GiantBronson Needs to get to Work

Draft Summary

You know what, GiantBronson, maybe you should just hold off on pursuing your dreams for a while. Maybe just ask them where they're going and hook up with 'em later, when you have a team capable of winning. GiantBronson is projected to finish eighth in Rob Elliott's League with a record of 3-11-0 (2,220 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs A.J. Green (first round), T.Y. Hilton (fourth round), and Demaryius Thomas (fifth round). Despite that strategy, they ended up with the worst group of WRs in the league.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.


Week 9 might require some artful managing from GiantBronson. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have the toughest schedule. In addition to having the most grueling overall schedule, GiantBronson has the league's second-toughest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Just Like Choosing Your Favorite Taylor Swift Song

    GiantBronson will have some tricky calls to make each week at RB, with a slim projected points difference between their third- (Matt Forte), fourth- (Rashad Jennings), and fifth-ranked (Matt Jones) RBs.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With eight "low-risk" players among their 16 picks, GiantBronson is looking for dependable help.

  • Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up

    GiantBronson got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • A Pair of Proven Winners

    GiantBronson has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Adrian Peterson and Tom Brady) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Put All Your Eggs in One Basket

    And then watch that basket. Ignoring roster depth, GiantBronson chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • Apparently ADP is Overrated

    With their ninth-round pick, GiantBronson pulled the trigger. They took Arian Foster at pick number 70 despite an ADP of just 85.6 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of A.J. Green had less value than any other pick of the round.

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 11
    He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy

    With 325 touches, Adrian Peterson is projected to rank second in the NFL in that category. How touching, GiantBronson.

    • Le'Veon Bell, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 22
    Returning to Excellence

    He played in only six games, but Bell joined Adrian Peterson as the only NFL running backs to rush for 90+ yards per game last season.

    • D. Thomas, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 38
    It Was a Learning Experience

    Hey, remember that time GiantBronson took Demaryius Thomas WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Thomas was the weakest value pick of the round.

    • Matt Forte, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 43
    Was Matt Forte the Best Choice at Pick No. 43?

    GiantBronson apparently thinks so. The Jets' RB is projected to have 206 points this year, almost the same as his total from last season.

Best Available

GiantBronson has three positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including QB and WR, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Marcus Mariota
    • Rank 109, ADP 123
    • Matthew Stafford
    • Rank 112, ADP 123
    • Kevin White
    • Rank 106, ADP 109
    • Corey Coleman
    • Rank 114, ADP 124
  • Bye Week Points Lost

  • Avg Points by Position vs League

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..."
