Ceasar's Imperials parlayed a solid draft slot (first overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 9-4-0 (2,055 points), they're projected to finish fourth in Apollo M.O.V.E. League. If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Antonio Brown (first round), Alshon Jeffery (second round), and Doug Baldwin (fourth round). This group will have to produce in order for Ceasar's Imperials to have a good season, as they are the most prolific group of WRs in the league.
Ceasar's Imperials should drop off the grid during Week 10. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the least challenging schedules. In addition to having the third-easiest overall schedule, Ceasar's Imperials also has the league's easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.
Ceasar's Imperials is stacked at WR, but DEF isn't too shabby, either.

Get a Grip
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 1
Check that dude for stickum! Antonio Brown figures to be a PPR monster this season, with an NFL-leading 131 projected catches.

How free will Alshon Jeffery be in the secondary? He's projected to rack up 1,344 receiving yards this year.
If it Ain't Broke

Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Ceasar's Imperials didn't grab their first RB (C.J. Anderson) until the third round.
Rethinking That One
- Doug Baldwin, WR

While drafted 48th overall, Doug Baldwin isn't projected among the NFL's top-30 in either receiving TDs (32nd with 6.4) or receiving yards (31st with 950).
All Over the Field
- Greg Olsen, TE
- Round 5, Pick 49
Greg Olsen is projected to rank among the top-5 for TEs in both receiving TDs (fourth with 6.9) and receiving yards (third with 941).

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.
