Slated for a 10th-Place Finish, Capsandskins Is Going to Have a Long Season

Draft Summary

Maybe Capsandskins was out partying with Gronk and autodrafted? Hopefully that's their excuse as they are projected to finish 10th in Bird up League with a record of 3-11-0 (1,429 points). With their first five picks, Capsandskins aimed for balance, selecting QB Andrew Luck (45th overall), RBs Todd Gurley (5th) and Jamaal Charles (25th), and WRs Allen Robinson (16th) and T.Y. Hilton (36th). They ended up with one of the highest-scoring RB combos in the league, as they have Gurley and Charles to carry the load.

Yikes. At least it can't get any worse. In fact, if you nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame, you'll be an official nominee. Feel better?


Capsandskins should drop off the grid during Week 8. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have the most challenging schedule. Along with having the most demanding overall schedule, Capsandskins has the league's second-toughest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Capsandskins will need to get busy on the waiver wire in Week 11, as their only TE (Antonio Gates) and only K (Shayne Graham) will both be off that week.

  • The First Step is Admitting You Have a Problem

    It appears that Capsandskins enjoys gambling, as they took chances on eight "high-risk" picks.

  • Veteran Mentors on the Bench

    While the top half of the roster (from a projected points perspective) is relatively young (ranked No. 10 in the league with an average of 5 years of NFL experience), the bench is quite experienced (ranked No. 1 with 8.6 years).

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, Capsandskins chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).

  • Going Out with a Whimper

    Capsandskins didn't end the night the way they might have liked, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • Team of Winners

    Capsandskins 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 (Todd Gurley, Allen Robinson, and DeAngelo Williams).

Player Analysis

    • Todd Gurley, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    No RB by Committee Here

    Look up "workhorse back" in the dictionary and there is a picture of Todd Gurley. Capsandskins should be in good shape if he reaches his league-leading 354 projected touches this year.

    • Allen Robinson, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 16
    177 Reasons for Capsandskins to Appreciate Allen Robinson

    Robinson ranks ninth in the Bird up League among WRs with 177 projected fantasy points.

    • Jamaal Charles, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 25
    Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

    Get on up, it's Jamaal Charles time! He should run cool this season with 191 projected points.

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 45
    A Super Duper Signal-Caller

    Andrew Luck is projected to rack up 319 points this year, enough to rank third among all QBs.

    • Arian Foster, RB
    • Round 7, Pick 65
    Trigger Happy

    With their seventh-round pick, Capsandskins pulled the trigger. They drafted Arian Foster at pick number 65 despite an ADP of just 84.9 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Best Available

While Capsandskins is projected to have three below-average positions, K is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.

    • Rank 215, ADP 120
    • Josh Brown
    • Rank 217, ADP 137
    • Cairo Santos

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..."
