If Titletownheros handles adversity during the season the way they did in this draft, it's going to be a long year. After receiving the eighth overall pick they were clearly rattled, which was made evident by their draft performance. As a result, they are projected to finish eighth in Yahoo Public 995015 League with a record of 7-7-0 (1,530 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Jordy Nelson (second round), T.Y. Hilton (third round), and Tyreek Hill (fifth round). They ultimately collected one of the weakest groups of RBs in the league, as they added Devonta Freeman, Ty Montgomery, and Eddie Lacy.
Titletownheros should use Week 11 to ponder life's deeper mysteries, like if someone claims "I always lie" then is that person lying or telling the truth? They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-difficult-than-average schedule. Corresponding with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, Titletownheros also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.
Earning Your Paycheck
Titletownheros will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Jarvis Landry), fourth- (Tyreek Hill), and fifth-ranked (Kenny Britt) wideouts.
Good to Have Balance, Right?
While the bottom half of the Titletownheros roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 2), the top half is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).
This is the American version, folks. Titletownheros elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.
Titletownheros got off to a sluggish start, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.
A Dominating Pair
Titletownheros has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jordy Nelson and T.Y. Hilton) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
Very Sneaky, Titletownheros
They nabbed a sleeper in O.J. Howard with pick No. 148.
Feed Thy Beast
- D. Freeman, RB
- Round 1, Pick 8
Devonta Freeman will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish 10th in the league with 272 touches.
- Jordy Nelson, WR
- Round 2, Pick 13
Jordy Nelson returned to form last year after missing all of 2015. The Packers wideout led the league in red zone targets, and only Mike Evans appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters last season.
Thank You, T.Y.!
- T.Y. Hilton, WR
- Round 3, Pick 28
Hilton notched career-highs in targets, receptions, and receiving yards last year. Only three wide receivers (Evans, Nelson, Brown) appeared more often on fantasy rosters that had earned a spot in their league's playoffs.
Throwing Caution to the Wind
- Ty Montgomery, RB
- Round 4, Pick 33
They grabbed Ty Montgomery with the 33rd pick, even though his ADP is only 54 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Milk Was a Bad Choice
- Tyreek Hill, WR
- Round 5, Pick 48
And so was drafting Tyreek Hill, the weakest value of the round.
Titletownheros has a couple positions they may look to upgrade (TE and QB), but TE is the area they'll want to focus their attention first.
- Jack Doyle
- Rank 106, ADP 118
- Eric Ebron
- Rank 117, ADP 127
- Austin Hooper
- Rank 128, ADP 136
- C.J. Fiedorowicz
- Rank 136, ADP 135

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.
