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.

Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for CT's Champion Team, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Larry Fitzgerald) and fourth-ranked (Doug Baldwin) wideouts.
