The rest of the league must be shaking their heads at AP's Daycare, who successfully took a high draft position and flushed it straight down the toilet. They're projected to finish ninth in The Rubber Band aka La Liga League with a record of 4-9-0. They stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Keenan Allen (second round), Larry Fitzgerald (fourth round), and Stefon Diggs (fifth round). They wound up with the highest-scoring group of RBs in the league, as they added David Johnson, Kareem Hunt, C.J. Anderson, and Giovani Bernard.
AP's Daycare should use Week 10 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why don't the pants worn by Dr. Bruce Banner rip when he transforms into the Hulk? It's better to think about that than pay attention to fantasy football. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the most difficult schedules. Along with having the second-most demanding overall schedule, AP's Daycare has the most difficult last four games of the season.
A Dominating Duo
RB and QB are both projected to be really solid units for AP's Daycare.
On the Rise
AP's Daycare hopes to break through this season, led by four players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
AP's Daycare will need to get busy on the waiver wire in Week 10, as their only TE (Zach Ertz) and only K (Cairo Santos) will both be off that week.
No Back-Up No Cry
Ignoring roster depth, AP's Daycare chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).
This Mr. Irrelevant gets No Parade
In terms of projected points, the choice of Wendell Smallwood was the weakest pick of the final round. Go ahead and check the waiver wire, AP's Daycare.
AP's Daycare Went All YOLO Here
Grabbing Wendell Smallwood at pick 192 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Smallwood is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.
No Backfield Committee Here
- David Johnson, RB
- Round 1, Pick 1
Projected to touch the ball 344 times this year (most in the NFL), David Johnson could deliver for AP's Daycare each and every week.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 2, Pick 24
Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Keenan Allen had less value than any other pick of the round.
Climbing The Ladder
- L. Fitzgerald, WR
- Round 4, Pick 48
Currently in ninth place with 14,389 career receiving yards, Fitzgerald is just 904 yards away from moving all the way up to third place all-time. Only five WRs (Evans, Nelson, Brown, Cooper, Hilton) appeared on more championship rosters last season.
- Stefon Diggs, WR
- Round 5, Pick 49
With their fifth-round pick, AP's Daycare pulled the trigger. They drafted Stefon Diggs at pick number 49 despite an ADP of just 95.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Was C.J. Anderson the Best Choice at Pick No. 72?
- C.J. Anderson, RB
- Round 6, Pick 72
AP's Daycare apparently thought so. The Broncos' RB is projected to significantly exceed his production (102 points) from last season.
There are four positions that AP's Daycare could look to improve, including K and TE, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Sebastian Janikowski
- Rank 184, ADP 110
- Stephen Hauschka
- Rank 195, ADP 112
- Austin Hooper
- Rank 126, ADP 134
- Cameron Brate
- Rank 132, ADP 131

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.
