Led by an Elite Group of RBs, Randolph Ramblers Is Loaded With Studs

Draft Summary

Corresponding with a solid draft slot (sixth overall), Randolph Ramblers had a stellar showing. With a mark of 10-3-0 (1,636 points), they're projected to finish first in Mr. Rodgers' Neighborhood '15 League. They wanted to shore up any RB concerns early, using three of their first five draft picks to draft RBs Le'Veon Bell (first round), Latavius Murray (fourth round), and Arian Foster (fifth round). This group will have to produce in order for Randolph Ramblers to have a good season, as they are the top group of RBs in the league.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.

Schedule

Week 5 might require some waiver-wire magic from Randolph Ramblers, as their top two projected scorers (Ryan Tannehill and Teddy Bridgewater) will be off that weekend. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the weakest slate. In addition to having the easiest overall schedule, Randolph Ramblers also has the easiest first four games of the season.

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.
