Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. R C's Ingeneous Team put together a quality team and is projected to finish in fifth-place in Stampede Blue League 3 League at 7-6-0 (1,609 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Matthew Stafford (33rd overall), RB Arian Foster (16th), WR Wes Welker (40th), and TE Jimmy Graham (9th) within the first five rounds. They ended up with the highest-scoring TE pair in the league, as they added Graham and Eric Ebron.
R C's Ingeneous Team should do pretty much anything other than watch football during Week 9. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Along with the sixth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for R C's Ingeneous Team.
Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for R C's Ingeneous Team, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (Bishop Sankey) and fourth-ranked (Mark Ingram) RBs.
Doing It By Committee
Here's hoping that there are enough balls to go around for the New England Patriots, as R C's Ingeneous Team scooped up a couple of their WRs in the middle of the draft (Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola).
R C's Ingeneous Team is loaded at TE, but QB isn't too shabby, either.
Team of Champions
R C's Ingeneous Team is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Jimmy Graham, Matthew Stafford, and Knowshon Moreno).
R C's Ingeneous Team elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
Eric Ebron and Johnny Manziel are a couple of late-round fliers with nice upside for R C's Ingeneous Team.
A Return to Huge Numbers
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 1, Pick 9
Sean Payton's return to the Saints' sideline seemed to work out for Jimmy Graham, who was owned on more championship rosters across Yahoo! than any other TE.
- Arian Foster, RB
- Round 2, Pick 16
Arian Foster is projected to finish ninth in the league with 1,432 total yards (1,054 rushing, 377 receiving).
Like a Prancing Unicorn
- M. Stafford, QB
- Round 3, Pick 33
Matthew Stafford is a fantasy dream. He's projected to finish third in the NFL in both passing TDs (31.5) and passing yards (4,950).
Was the 64th Pick the Right Time for Julian Edelman?
- Julian Edelman, WR
- Round 6, Pick 64
R C's Ingeneous Team apparently believes it is. The Patriots' wide receiver is projected to get 228 points this year, after putting up 252 last year.
Let Me Check it Again
- Golden Tate, WR
- Round 7, Pick 81
Why can't I find Golden Tate on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round flier."
There are three positions that R C's Ingeneous Team could look to improve, including DEF and WR, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Baltimore Defanse
- Rank 233, ADP 143
- New York Defanse
- Rank 240, ADP 124
- Kenny Stills
- Rank 129, ADP 130
- James Jones
- Rank 137, ADP 129

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.
