Legalize Weeden took a high draft pick and turned it into a playoff-caliber squad with a projected record of 11-3-0 (2,092). They should be able to roll through most of Any Given Sunday League on their way to a projected third-place finish. They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Cam Newton (42nd overall), RBs Doug Martin (22nd) and Jamaal Charles (39th), and WRs Antonio Brown (2nd) and Allen Robinson (19th). They put together the top group of WRs in the league, as they added Brown, Robinson, John Brown, and Marvin Jones Jr.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Legalize Weeden 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 softest slates. Along with the third-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Legalize Weeden.
Legalize Weeden is stacked at WR, but RB isn't too shabby, either.

- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 2

The Heist Is On

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.
