Coinciding with a juicy draft position (second overall), Mayor Of AwesomeTown had an outstanding performance. They're projected to finish second in FREAKS League with a record of 13-3-1 (2,163 points).
Mayor Of AwesomeTown took advantage of all three of their keeper slots, focusing on roster balance. They elected to retain a QB (Drew Brees, 17.1 ADP), RB (Marshawn Lynch, 10.1 ADP), and WR (Calvin Johnson, 6.2 ADP). On average, their three keepers are slightly less valuable (by 0.3%) than the draft picks that they replaced.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Mayor Of AwesomeTown has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the least challenging schedules. Mayor Of AwesomeTown has the opportunity to come out firing, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Mayor Of AwesomeTown might need to hit the waiver wire in Week 4, as their No. 1- (Marshawn Lynch), No. 2- (Andre Ellington) and No. 5-ranked (Christine Michael) RBs will all be resting that week.
A Pair of Strengths
Mayor Of AwesomeTown has two positional units projected to be better than the league average, WR and QB.
Mayor Of AwesomeTown hedged their bets by scooping up Christine Michael in the 18th round to back up Marshawn Lynch, his Seahawks teammate (a second-round selection).
Team of Champions
Mayor Of AwesomeTown is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams, including Calvin Johnson, Drew Brees, and Jordy Nelson.
Mayor Of AwesomeTown elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
Jordan Matthews and Christine Michael are a couple of late-round fliers with nice upside for Mayor Of AwesomeTown.
Meeting His Expectations

Get on up, it's Marshawn Lynch time! He should run cool this season with 209 projected points.
Is Drew Brees Religious?

- Round 4, Pick 26
Nelson ranks ninth in the FREAKS League among WRs with 168 projected fantasy points.
Better Lucky Than Good?

- Round 5, Pick 34
The rest of FREAKS League overlooked a gem, and Mayor Of AwesomeTown made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Andre Ellington.
While Mayor Of AwesomeTown is expected to be weak across four positions, TE is definitely their weakest unit and an area of need.

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.
