With a Projected Finish of Second, sidwynn t's Team Will Dominate the League

Draft Summary

Whether or not sidwynn t's Team was talking trash in the draft chat room is irrelevant and you have no proof. What there is proof of, though, is a dominant draft performance by sidwynn t's Team that led to a season projection of 11-3-0 (1,598 points) and a second-place finish in Yahoo Public 373633 League. They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Allen Robinson (second round), Julian Edelman (fourth round), and Sammy Watkins (fifth round). They also landed the highest-scoring RB pair in the league, as they have David Johnson and Mark Ingram on the roster.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

sidwynn t's Team should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why abbreviation is such a long word. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. Their top three projected scorers (Carson Palmer, Kirk Cousins and David Johnson) will have a bye week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the weakest schedules. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, sidwynn t's Team also has the league's second-easiest first four games and softest last 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.
