It doesn't matter how you get to the playoffs, it only matters that you get there. Carlos's Team is a squad built to get there and is projected to finish third in League of URMAGERD! League with a record of 6-7-0 (21,532 points). RB depth won't be the issue this season as Carlos's Team loaded up, drafting Jamaal Charles (2nd overall), Montee Ball (11th), and DeMarco Murray (14th) with their first three selections. Carlos's Team will rely heavily on this group, as they are the best group of RBs in the league.
Carlos's Team chose to use none of their nine keeper spots, instead leaving their fantasy fate solely in the hands of the draft.
Carlos's Team should use Week 10 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why don't the pants worn by Dr. Bruce Banner rip when he transforms into the Hulk? It's better to think about that than pay attention to fantasy football. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Along with the third-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Carlos's Team.
Carrying the Load
Carlos's Team has a trio of above-average positions leading the way (RB, WR, and K).
I Keep Getting Older

Team of Champions
Carlos's Team is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, six of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including Jamaal Charles, DeMarco Murray, and Alshon Jeffery.
Carlos's Team elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
2014 Could be More of the Same
- Jamaal Charles, RB
- Round 1, Pick 2
Owners who took a chance on Charles last season were rewarded handsomely, as he was owned on more playoff rosters across Yahoo! than any other RB.
- Montee Ball, RB
- Round 2, Pick 11
There's no doubt that ball-carriers were the top priority for Carlos's Team, as they went RB-RB-RB in the draft's first three rounds.

DeMarco Murray is projected to finish ninth in the league with 1,455 total yards (1,013 rushing, 441 receiving).

Better Lucky Than Good?
- Antonio Brown, WR

The rest of League of URMAGERD! League overlooked a gem, and Carlos's Team made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Antonio Brown.
There are three positions that Carlos's Team could look to upgrade, including TE, which looks like their biggest area of need.
- Charles Clay

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.
