Led by a Stellar WR Corps, CT's Champion Team Has the Talent to Dominate

Draft Summary

CT's Champion Team proved on draft day that when the lights come on, they perform, building a strong team capable of beating anyone on the schedule. They are expected to finish first in Stampede Blue League 3 League with a record of 11-2-0 (1,684 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Calvin Johnson (first round), Randall Cobb (third round), and Larry Fitzgerald (fourth round). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, CT's Champion Team will benefit. They are the top group of WRs in the league.

With a draft like that, you might as well make it official. Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

Schedule

Week 10 might require some artful managing from CT's Champion Team, as their top two projected scorers (Tom Brady and Robert Griffin III) will be on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the easiest schedule. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, CT's Champion Team also has the league's easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

    TE is the strongest position for CT's Champion Team, though WR and RB aren't too shabby either.

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.
