Here at Buffalowdown we put together two fantasy football leagues. We drafted both leagues over the weekend and I have to say that it was a lot of fun. Yahoo Fantasy Sports provides you with a draft grade after the draft and this year they went in-depth on the analysis for each team breaking down their draft as well as what week they may have trouble in, where they are projected to finish, what they did write and what they did wrong, as well as draft notes.
Here are the 10 players in the first Buffalowdown league and a quick overview of their team. All Information is taken from Yahoo Sports Draft Grades.
The Commissioner – I WIN!
Slated for a 10th-Place Finish, I WIN! Has a Great Team if They Don’t Care About Winning
Yikes. Was this on purpose? We’ll assume it was and that maybe the GM I WIN! was just having an off day. Some work will be required if I WIN! wants to finish anywhere other than last. Projections suggest they’ll go 1-13-0 (1,270 points). They obviously understand how important the running back position is in fantasy football. They used three of their first five picks on RBs Marshawn Lynch (first round), Ryan Mathews (fourth round), and Frank Gore (fifth round). This group will have to produce in order for I WIN! to have a good season, as they are a good group of RBs.
Stupid auto-draft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.
• Good Luck With That One!
I WIN! will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Sammy Watkins), fourth- (Mike Evans), and fifth-ranked (Brian Hartline) wideouts.
• A Good Problem to Have
I WIN! will have some nail-biting decisions to make each week at RB, with a small projected points difference between their second- (Frank Gore), third- (Ryan Mathews), and fourth-ranked (Steven Jackson) RBs.
• A Triumvirate of Talent
I WIN! has three above-average positions on their roster (QB, RB, and K).
• Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up
I WIN! 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 Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
I WIN! grabbed a sleeper in Miles Austin with pick No. 150.
• My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, I WIN! chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
