Draft Grade: D
Ouch. Prove these ratings wrong by nominating yourself for the Toyota Hall of Fame.
Selecting in the bottom half of the first round (eighth overall), Jim N Jamie's Team was unable to conjure up any fantasy magic. With a projected record of 0-13-0 (1,320 points), they're picked to finish 12th in Stampede Blue League 3 League. With four RBs on the roster, Jim N Jamie's Team might have opted for quantity over quality at that spot; their RBs are projected to average 98 points this season, fewer than the league average of 174. They have the worst set of RBs in the league, as they added Ahmad Bradshaw, DeAngelo Williams, Shonn Greene, and Willis McGahee.
The Season Ahead
Week 8 appears to be a tricky one, as the top two projected scorers (Andrew Luck and Joe Flacco) for Jim N Jamie's Team will be relaxing during off weeks. From the perspective of opponents' projected points, they have the hardest schedule in Stampede Blue League 3 League. Jim N Jamie's Team will need to be playing their best as the playoffs approach, as the last four games of their season are projected to be more difficult than the league average. A soft stretch might begin in Week 1, when Jim N Jamie's Team plays projected bottom-tier teams for three games in a row.
- Strongest Position: Jim N Jamie's Team only had one above-average position grouping, DEF, which is projected to beat the league mean at that slot by 6.8%.
- Cheering for the Home Team: Jim N Jamie's Team might be a fan of the Indianapolis Colts. They reached three times to draft a player from that team.
- Waiver Wire Time: Week 8 looks to be a tough one for Jim N Jamie's Team as both QBs they selected will be on bye that week (Andrew Luck and Joe Flacco).
- On the Decline: With five players projected to score significantly fewer points this season than last season, Jim N Jamie's Team will be hoping that the pundits are wrong.
- Risk Hater: Actuaries love the drafting style of Jim N Jamie's Team. They minimized risk by selecting 10 consistent players among their 16 picks.
- Mr. Irrelevant: Jim N Jamie's Team may know something no one else does, grabbing Willis McGahee, who is on a squad in less than 10% of all Yahoo! leagues (3%).

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.
