Veni Vidi Vici! Latin for "I came, I saw, I conquered", this perfectly describes the drafting tactics of MakeAmericaGr8Again, who yielded a projected first-place finish (12-1-0, 1,965 points) in Guts & Glory League. With this kind of investment in the WR position by MakeAmericaGr8Again, they can only hope this trio resembles "The Greatest Show on Turf." They used their first three picks to draft Antonio Brown in the first round (2nd overall), Dez Bryant in the second (19th), and Keenan Allen in the third (22nd). These players will be heavily relied upon by MakeAmericaGr8Again, as they are the most prolific group of WRs in the league.
While Week 7 has the most players on bye for MakeAmericaGr8Again (four), Week 8 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the easiest slate. Along with the easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for MakeAmericaGr8Again.
Sky's the Limit
With five players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, MakeAmericaGr8Again hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.
The coach of MakeAmericaGr8Again might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted QB (Carson Palmer) and second-drafted QB (Eli Manning) have very similar seasonal point projections.
Team of Champions
MakeAmericaGr8Again is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including Antonio Brown, Thomas Rawls, and Carson Palmer.
MakeAmericaGr8Again elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
Full Control Early On
MakeAmericaGr8Again began things with a bang, nabbing the most projected points in the league during the draft's first half.
MakeAmericaGr8Again's Stud Signal-Caller
Eli Manning is projected to rack up 351 points this year, enough to rank seventh among all QBs.
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 1, Pick 2
MakeAmericaGr8Again fully endorses the wideout's quest for 150 receptions in 2016. Shoot for the moon, Mr. Brown. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.
A Nose for the End Zone
- Dez Bryant, WR
- Round 2, Pick 19
Dez Bryant is expected to cross the goal line 9.9 times, placing him second in the NFL in projected receiving TDs. His 1,294 projected receiving yards also place him seventh in the league.
Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 3, Pick 22
Keenan Allen is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 99 projected catches rank fifth in the league.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Carlos Hyde, RB
- Round 4, Pick 39
Carlos Hyde was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
Move Over Marshawn
- Thomas Rawls, RB
- Round 5, Pick 42
Rawls produced a ridiculous 5.6 YPC last season, and among all RBs, only Devonta Freeman and DeAngelo Williams appeared more often on first-place fantasy rosters.
If MakeAmericaGr8Again is looking to make a roster move, RB is a position they could look to upgrade first.
- Charles Sims
- Rank 119, ADP 128
- James White
- Rank 135, ADP 121
- Jay Ajayi
- Rank 139, ADP 98
- Theo Riddick
- Rank 158, ADP 123

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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
