With the 5th pick you should have at least two stars and you have none.Hence the bad grade.

Lesean McCoy and Andre Johnson aren't stars in their positions? Andrew luck is a rising star...

Luck benefitted last year from Ariens down field attack.  His numbers wont match last year

Andre Johnson? Yeah, five years ago.   He will put up decent numbers, but not top 5 at his position anymore

McCoy?  Yeah, your only decent pick imo

The rest of the team is hot sh it.  Can't believe you didnt do better with the 5th pick

I think ur team is decent. I don't agree with the above statements as I like McCoy and Johnson...they will perform. My concerns are with gore and Smith. Gore has two young backs breathing down his neck and could get replaced if injured. Smith is a deep threat and will be hit or miss.

Your te is average, d is not good and the only two on your bench that have upside is blackmon and Richardson.

the c grade is right. Miller has your flex is iffy and what started out as a decent draft ended poorly imo.

But you do have update, you just need some luck.

No doubt you passed over better players for McCoy.  I'm betting you could have taken Rice, Foster, even Alfred Morris...

Yahoo only takes basic scoring systems into account.  If your league has yardage bonuses they don't look at that so their grades are skewed.   

And how terrible is their new layout/color scheme?  Just awful

Idk why you're so high on your team, its not that good. Gore isnt that good of a rb as he is getting older. Lucky if he finishes top 20 for rb. Torrey smith is iffy. Martellus bennett good luck. Luck isn't that great, top 10 maybe. Mccoy and andre aare all you have

Your team does suck, sad thing is I have 3 of your players including TE, k and Richardson.  I got graded c- because I drafted players before their average draft position.  However, picking 5 is not easy because you never get the 2 picks so close together on the snake. You may have to reach when you have to wait 9 picks between you turn

The Yahoo draft grade is largely meaningless. I would actually rather have a low Yahoo draft grade. That said,  your team doesn't look decent but you have some gaping holes at TE and Defense. You may have some RB production issues which could lead to issues in choosing who to start. Good Luck.

Andrew Luck is good though. He will be a top 3 fantasy QB.

First off, Yahoo's grades are based on Yahoo's standard league settings.

 Without knowing your league's settings, I would give you and F and say I wish you were in my league.  Who did you take 1st with the 5th pick overall?

I drafted 3rd in a 12 team league and was given a Yahoo grade of B for this but as you said Yahoo only takes basic scoring systems into account.  If your league has yardage bonuses they don't look at that so their grades are skewed.  

QB-Matt Ryan 
RB Jamaal Charles
RB Frank Gore
WR Julio Jones
WR Ty Hilton
TE Jason Witten
W/T flex position Lance Moore
W/R flex position Danny Woodhead
W/R/T flex position Jeremy Kerley
DF/ST Seattle
DF/ST San Francisco

our league starts two defenses each week.

andre johnson may be top 5 in real life but in fantasy he is not.... he has never scored double digit TDs in his career.... some players are good in real life but it doesnt directly translate to fantasy sports
