The GM of TEAM 6 must be an angel, because this team looks like it fell from heaven. They were able to flip the 12th overall pick into an expected finish of second place with a record of 10-2-2 (1,410 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Demaryius Thomas (first round), Dez Bryant (second round), and Percy Harvin (fifth round). This group will have to produce in order for TEAM 6 to have a good season, as they are the highest-scoring group of WRs in the league.
While Week 4 has the most players on bye for TEAM 6 (three), Week 11 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. Along with having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, TEAM 6 has the second-toughest first four games of the season.
Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for TEAM 6, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Percy Harvin) and fourth-ranked (Aaron Dobson) wideouts.
Separating the Wheat from the Chaff
At three different positions, TEAM 6 picked up projected top-3 players (Dez Bryant, Demaryius Thomas, and St. Louis).
The First Step is Admitting You Have a Problem
It appears that TEAM 6 enjoys gambling, as they took chances on six "high-risk" picks.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, TEAM 6 chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
With four steals in the first 9 rounds (including Arian Foster, Percy Harvin, and Le'Veon Bell), TEAM 6 made some shrewd moves.
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
TEAM 6 nabbed a sleeper in Jordan Matthews with pick No. 156.
Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law
- D. Thomas, WR
- Round 1, Pick 12
Demaryius Thomas is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 106 projected catches rank second in the league.
Haters Gonna Hate
- Dez Bryant, WR
- Round 2, Pick 13
The rest of Family Feud League overlooked a gem, and TEAM 6 made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Dez Bryant.
How Rebellious of You
- Le'Veon Bell, RB
- Round 3, Pick 36
TEAM 6 said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Le'Veon Bell).
- Arian Foster, RB
- Round 4, Pick 37
If other Yahoo! users are right, TEAM 6 got a steal in the fourth round, when they selected Arian Foster (37th overall pick vs. ADP of 18.7).
Returning to Greatness
- Percy Harvin, WR
- Round 5, Pick 60
If special teams contributions count in Family Feud League, TEAM 6 may have found a gem in Percy Harvin. Including his 788 projected return yards, he ranks third in the league with 1,708 all-purpose yards.
TEAM 6 has three positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including RB and K, which look like the biggest areas of need.

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.
