Even though Deathfromabove didn't have a high draft pick (eighth overall), it didn't matter, as they built a legit squad capable of taking it to any opponent that gets in their way. As far as projections go, they will probably finish second in Another Sunday League with a record of 11-2-0 (2,055 points). With their first five picks, Deathfromabove focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Peyton Manning (8th overall), RBs Giovani Bernard (17th) and Maurice Jones-Drew (56th), and WRs Alshon Jeffery (32nd) and Vincent Jackson (41st). They built the highest-scoring QB duo in the league, as they added Manning and Cam Newton to their squad.
Deathfromabove can chalk up Week 4 as a loss. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least difficult slates. Corresponding with the third-easiest overall schedule, Deathfromabove also has the second-softest last four games of the season.
Good Luck With That One!
Deathfromabove will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Rueben Randle), fourth- (Dwayne Bowe), and fifth-ranked (Markus Wheaton) wideouts.
Deathfromabove has four positions that are better than league average. While DEF, WR, and K are projected to be good, QB is the strongest on Deathfromabove.
Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

Fantasy is Better Than Reality
- Peyton Manning, QB

Throwing Caution to the Wind
- Dwayne Bowe, WR

They grabbed Dwayne Bowe with the 65th pick, even though his ADP is only 116.7 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Basic Math is Optional
- Cam Newton, QB
- Round 7, Pick 80
Michael Vick once claimed "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 592 projected rushing yards, Cam Newton can channel his inner Vick to help Deathfromabove this year.

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.
