Thanks to a successful draft by the obviously skilled GM, jamie's Legit Team turned the not-so-favorable sixth overall pick into a projected finish of second. They're expected to go 10-3-0 (2,065 points) in Dy Nasty League. They drafted seven decent RBs for their roster. This group is projected to average 134 points this season, which is close the league average of 138. They built the highest-scoring QB pair in the league, as they added Peyton Manning and Ryan Tannehill.
jamie's Legit Team should use Week 4 to consider life's great mysteries, like why abbreviation is such a long word. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have eight players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the least challenging schedules. Along with the second-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for jamie's Legit Team.
The fantasy hopes of jamie's Legit Team rest heavily on the fortunes of Peyton's crew, as they have four Broncos on their roster.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
jamie's Legit Team might require waiver wire help in Week 4, as their No. 1- (Zac Stacy), No. 2- (Andre Ellington) and No. 4-ranked (Terrance West) RBs will all be idle that week.
Shouldering the Burden?
jamie's Legit Team has three above-average positions on their roster: WR, DEF, and TE.
Up and Comers
Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and jamie's Legit Team may have done just that, with six players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.
It's How You Finish
jamie's Legit Team must have had a motivational halftime speech, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
Team of Champions
jamie's Legit Team is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Demaryius Thomas, Peyton Manning, and Zac Stacy).
The Power of Persuasion
- D. Thomas, WR
- Round 1, Pick 6
Now would be a reasonable time for jamie's Legit Team to encourage the Dy Nasty League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Demaryius Thomas and his 106 projected catches (ranked second in the NFL).
Fantasy is Better Than Reality
- Peyton Manning, QB
- Round 2, Pick 15
Even though he fell short in Super Bowl 48, Peyton Manning was more likely to be owned on a 2013 Yahoo! championship roster than any other QB.
Does Andre Ellington Enjoy Fajitas?
- A. Ellington, RB
- Round 3, Pick 26
Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Ellington is projected to rank ninth in the league with 1,503 all-purpose yards.
Is His Jersey Made of Honey?
- Zac Stacy, RB
- Round 4, Pick 35
Because the projections for Zac Stacy are sweet. He's projected to be the 10th-best RB in the league this season.
Returning to Greatness
- C. Patterson, WR
- Round 6, Pick 55
If special teams contributions count in Dy Nasty League, jamie's Legit Team may have found a gem in Cordarrelle Patterson. Including his 863 projected return yards, he ranks first in the league with 1,882 all-purpose yards.
jamie's Legit Team is projected to have a pair of below-average positions (QB and RB), but QB is clearly their worst unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.
- Michael Vick
- Rank 229, ADP 122

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.
