Although they selected 11th overall, Can't Touch This came through with a solid draft performance. They're projected to finish with a record of 10-3-0 (1,685 points), placing them second in Stampede Blue League 6 League. Can't Touch This stocked up on pass-catching weapons early on, using three of their first five selections to pick up WRs A.J. Green (second round), Andre Johnson (third round), and Dwayne Bowe (fourth round). That early positional investment yielded the best trio of WRs in the league.
The Season Ahead
Week 12 might require some artful managing by the coach of Can't Touch This, as it is the week when the most players (3) and most projected fantasy points are on bye. They have one of the weakest slates in the league when factoring in opponents' projected points. Can't Touch This could run into an early buzzsaw, as the first four games of their season are projected to be more difficult than the league average. An especially difficult stretch might begin in Week 11, when Can't Touch This battles the projected top-tier teams for two straight games.
- Stoutest Slot: Can't Touch This should be in good shape with four position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE looks to be the strongest among them, beating the average projection for the position by 19.2%.
- Biggest Steal: If other Yahoo! users are right, Can't Touch This got a steal in the 10th round, when they selected Denver (110th overall pick vs. ADP of 76.1).
- On Autopilot: Picking starting WRs should be academic most weeks for Can't Touch This, as there's a healthy projected points difference between their third-ranked (Dwayne Bowe) and fourth-ranked (Denarius Moore) WRs.
- On the Rise: Can't Touch This hopes to break through this season, led by four players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.
- Mr. Mendoza: Robert Woods is owned in fewer than 10% of Yahoo! leagues (2%). Let's hope that a.) Can't Touch This has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.
- Consistency Is My Middle Name: With seven consistent players among their 16 picks, Can't Touch This is looking for reliable help.
Toyota Top Picks
- T. Richardson
1st Round (11th Pick)
He Can Catch, Too: Trent Richardson is a dual threat, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fifth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 451.
- A.J. Green
2nd Round (14th Pick)
A.J. Green ranks sixth in the league among WRs with 264 projected fantasy points, 36.0% higher than the average at that position.
- Andre Johnson
3rd Round (35th Pick)
PPR Powerhouse: Andre Johnson will bring extra value if Stampede Blue League 6 has a PPR format, as he's projected to rank eighth in the NFL with 90 receptions.
- Dwayne Bowe
4th Round (38th Pick)
Dwayne Bowe may not justify his 38th overall draft pick if projections hold true. Currently, he is estimated to fall outside the NFL's top 10 in both yards (15th with 1,093) and TDs (20th with 6.9).
- Russell Wilson
5th Round (59th Pick)
Russell Wilson is projected to finish ninth in the NFL in passing TDs with 26.8.

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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
