Toyota Top Picks
- Jamaal Charles
1st Round (3rd Pick)
Running, Catching, Winning: Jamaal Charles can hurt opponents with his hands as well as his feet. He ranks fourth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 478.
- Randall Cobb
2nd Round (22nd Pick)
Count the Rings: Last season, owning Randall Cobb usually equalled fantasy success. Among all players, he ranked in the top 20 across all Yahoo! leagues in individual championship percentage (20th), a trend that Was All Luck hopes will continue this year.

3rd Round (27th Pick)
Chris Johnson went with the 27th overall pick in the draft. Unfortunately for Was All Luck, he is projected to miss the top 10 in the NFL in both rushing yards (12th with 1,192) and TDs (30th with 5.2).

4th Round (46th Pick)
Marques Colston may not justify his 46th overall draft pick if projections hold true. Currently, he is estimated to fall outside the NFL's top 10 in both yards (26th with 1,010) and TDs (13th with 7.8).
- Russell Wilson

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.
