flo's Team parlayed a solid draft slot (second overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 10-4-0 (1,378 points), they're projected to finish third in Yahoo Public 391811 League. They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Aaron Rodgers (22nd overall), RBs LeSean McCoy (2nd) and Bishop Sankey (39th), and WRs Julio Jones (19th) and Andre Johnson (42nd). They ended up with the best group of WRs in the league, as they added Jones, Johnson and Julian Edelman for their rotation.
flo's Team should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why is there only one word for thesaurus? That's still better time spent than checking fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the softest schedules. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, flo's Team also has the softest last four games of the season.

Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Gourmet Cuisine?

How free will Andre Johnson be in the secondary? He's projected to rack up 1,184 receiving yards this year.
Was the 59th Pick the Right Time for Julian Edelman?
- Julian Edelman, WR
- Round 6, Pick 59
flo's Team apparently believes it is. The Patriots' wide receiver is projected to get 148 points this year, just a bit better than last year.

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.
