Maybe these pre-season projections will get Rome's Revenge to play with a chip on their shoulder. It's definitely going to require some sort of extra effort if they hope to reach the playoffs. Hell, it may require extra effort just to get a win. Rome's Revenge is projected to go 4-10-0 (1,547 points) and finish eighth in Yahoo Public 285420 League. With their first five picks, Rome's Revenge focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (7th overall), RBs Doug Martin (27th) and Carlos Hyde (34th), and WRs A.J. Green (14th) and Eric Decker (47th). They also landed one of the most prolific QB duos in the league, as they added Rodgers and Andy Dalton to their squad.
Rome's Revenge should use Week 11 to consider life's great mysteries, like why Greenland is ice and Iceland is green. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a tougher-than-average slate. Along with the third-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Rome's Revenge.
Rome's Revenge elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

With their ninth-round pick, Rome's Revenge pulled the trigger. They took Rashad Jennings at pick number 87 despite an ADP of just 123.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Kyle Rudolph is owned in only 8% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) Rome's Revenge has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

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.
