Hopefully just because this draft was average, Boylston Bombers won't purchase a muscle car or jacked-up truck to overcompensate. And hey, with the right breaks, maybe this team can reach the playoffs. They are projected to finish sixth in Frozen Tundra League with a record of 6-8-0 (1,790 points). With five WRs on the roster, Boylston Bombers guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 136, their WRs projected average of 146 points won't be much different than the rest of the wideouts around the league. They put together the best TE duo in the league, as they have Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Boylston Bombers has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a more-challenging-than-average schedule. In addition to having the third-most grueling overall schedule, Boylston Bombers has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

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.
