Draft Grade: C
Ouch. Prove these ratings wrong by nominating yourself for the Toyota Hall of Fame.
The poor draft position for B Mills's Super Team proved too great an obstacle to overcome. After selecting ninth overall, they're projected to finish 11th in Stampede Blue League 6 League with a record of 3-10-0 (1,513 points). B Mills's Super Team stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Demaryius Thomas (second round), Roddy White (third round), and Torrey Smith (fifth round). Going hand-in-hand with that early investment, they acquired the highest-scoring foursome of WRs in the league.

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.
