The Bjoern Supremacy parlayed a solid draft slot (sixth overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 8-5-0 (1,680 points), they're projected to finish fifth in Stampede Blue League 3 League. The Bjoern Supremacy stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Larry Fitzgerald (third round), Danny Amendola (fourth round), and Jordy Nelson (fifth round). They have one of the most prolific quartets of RBs in the league, as they scooped up Arian Foster, LeSean McCoy, Le'Veon Bell, and Shane Vereen for their rotation.
The Season Ahead
While Week 10 has the most players on bye for The Bjoern Supremacy (4), Week 9 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. They have a less-challenging-than-average schedule when factoring in opponents' projected points. The Bjoern Supremacy has the opportunity to exit the gates quickly, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average. An especially difficult stretch might begin in Week 2, when The Bjoern Supremacy battles the projected top-tier teams for two straight games.
- Stoutest Slot: The Bjoern Supremacy should be in good shape with five position groups projected to be better-than-average. RB looks to be the strongest among them, beating the average projection for the position by 20.6%.
- On Autopilot: Picking starting WRs should be academic most weeks for The Bjoern Supremacy, as there's a healthy projected points difference between their third-ranked (Jordy Nelson) and fourth-ranked (Emmanuel Sanders) WRs.
- Biggest Steal: If other Yahoo! users are right, The Bjoern Supremacy got a steal in the ninth round, when they selected Houston (102nd overall pick vs. ADP of 73.3).
- Up and Comers: Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and The Bjoern Supremacy may have done just that, with four players estimated to top their last-season numbers by a substantial amount.
- The Bargain Whisperer: The Bjoern Supremacy was hunting for deals throughout the draft, snapping up three steals in the first 10 rounds (including Houston, Cincinnati, and Jordy Nelson).
- Young and Hungry: The Bjoern Supremacy is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 4.7 years of NFL experience.

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.
