Led by a Stellar WR Corps, kyle's Team Has a Legit Squad

Draft Summary

kyle's Team delivered a solid draft performance, taking the first overall draft slot and turning it into a team with playoff potential. With an expected record of 8-4-2 (1,951 points), they're projected to finish third in TLC Staff League. They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (21st overall), RB LeSean McCoy (40th), WR Antonio Brown (1st), and TE Tyler Eifert (41st) within the first five rounds. They put together the best group of WRs in the league, as they have Brown, Jarvis Landry, Amari Cooper, and Larry Fitzgerald on their team.

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


kyle's Team should use Week 10 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why do we park in a driveway but drive on a parkway? It will be better to think about that than to check fantasy football. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the least difficult schedules. Along with having the third-easiest overall schedule, kyle's Team has the second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Shouldering the Burden

    kyle's Team has four above-average positions with RB and WR projected to lead the way.

  • Losing Focus

    kyle's Team must have had to leave their draft party early. After tallying the most projected points in the league over the draft's first half, they managed the fewest during the second half.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With eight "low-risk" players among their 15 picks, kyle's Team is looking for dependable help.

  • You Almost Got It Right

    The top half of the kyle's Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1). The bottom of the roster, unfortunately, is rated as the league's weakest.

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

    kyle's Team knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • Checked Out Early

    kyle's Team didn't exactly wrap up the draft on a high note, ending up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 1
    Get a Grip

    Check that dude for stickum! Antonio Brown figures to be a PPR monster this season, with an NFL-leading 132 projected catches.

    • Aaron Rodgers, QB
    • Round 3, Pick 21
    Do You Know if Aaron Rodgers is Religious?

    With 319 projected points, kyle's Team is hoping Rodgers will be the answer to their prayers.

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 40
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, kyle's Team didn't grab their first RB (LeSean McCoy) until the fourth round.

    • Tyler Eifert, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 41
    Apparently ADP is Overrated

    With their fifth-round pick, kyle's Team pulled the trigger. They took Tyler Eifert at pick number 41 despite an ADP of just 100 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 60
    Jumping on Jarvis:

    kyle's Team may see some WR1 potential in Landry, who was one of three players (along with Julio Jones and Antonio Brown) to see double-digit targets in each of the final four weeks of 2015.

Best Available

kyle's Team could potentially upgrade TE and DEF, but TE is the position they'll want to focus on first.

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..."
