Draft Grade: A
Top of the league! Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall of Fame to prove you’re top of the world.
Although they selected 10th overall, ZevetS's Team came through with a solid draft performance. They're projected to finish with a record of 11-2-0 (1,722 points), placing them first in Stampede Blue League 2 League. ZevetS's Team stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Dez Bryant (second round), Roddy White (third round), and Vincent Jackson (fourth round). Corresponding with that strategy, they landed one of the best triumvirates of WRs in the league.
The Season Ahead
With the most players (6) and most projected fantasy points on bye, Week 9 might require some artful managing by the coach of ZevetS's Team. From a projected points standpoint, they have one of the weakest schedules in the league. In addition to having the second-easiest overall schedule, ZevetS's Team has the softest last four games of the season. Starting in Week 4, ZevetS's Team will have to navigate a tricky part of the schedule, squaring off against projected top-tier teams in the league three times in a five-game span.
- Strongest Position: While ZevetS's Team is projected to have four better-than-average positions, TE is clearly their best unit (32.4% above the league average).
- Biggest Steal: If other Yahoo! users are right, ZevetS's Team got a steal in the ninth round, when they selected Phil Dawson (106th overall pick vs. ADP of 84.1).
- Hit the Waiver Wire: ZevetS's Team might need waiver wire help in Week 9, as both Ks they drafted will be idle that week (Phil Dawson and Josh Brown).
- Bargain Hunter: With three steals in the first 10 rounds (including Phil Dawson, San Francisco, and Rob Gronkowski), ZevetS's Team made some shrewd moves.
- Mr. Mendoza: Bernard Pierce is owned in fewer than 10% of Yahoo! leagues (8%). Let's hope that a.) ZevetS's Team has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.
- Consistency Is My Middle Name: With six consistent players among their 16 picks, ZevetS's Team is looking for reliable help.

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.
