Collusion might be the only way to stop Screaming Scotsmen this year, as they are projected to finish with a record of 11-3-0; good enough for second in Belgrade Beer Drinkers League.
Screaming Scotsmen took advantage of all 12 of their keeper positions, loading up on RBs. They retained three RBs among their five highest-ranked keepers-- Giovani Bernard (19.1 ADP), Arian Foster (21.5 ADP), and Andre Ellington (23.7 ADP). From an ADP perspective, their top-ranked keeper (Giovani Bernard), is less valuable than a first-round draft choice. Overall, the top five keepers on Screaming Scotsmen are projected to be slightly less productive (by 4.8%) than the draft picks they replaced.
Screaming Scotsmen can chalk up Week 10 as a loss. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the softest schedules. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, Screaming Scotsmen has the most difficult last four games of the season.

Was Larry Fitzgerald Worth it at Pick No. 52?

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.
