Corresponding with a solid draft slot (sixth overall), Amish Electricians had a stellar showing. With a mark of 9-4-0 (1,652 points), they're projected to finish third in Stampede Blue League 7 League. Amish Electricians waited until the ninth round to secure their top quarterback, picking up Eli Manning with the 102nd overall selection. They have one of the top quartets of RBs in the league, as they added C.J. Spiller, Darren Sproles, Daryl Richardson, and Danny Woodhead.
The Season Ahead
Week 9 appears to be a tricky one, as the top two projected scorers (Eli Manning and Carson Palmer) for Amish Electricians will be relaxing during off weeks. They have one of the least challenging slates in the league when factoring in opponents' projected points. Amish Electricians 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. An especially easy stretch appears to start in Week 2, during which Amish Electricians plays projected bottom-tier teams for two consecutive games.
- Strongest Position: With four better-than-average positions on Amish Electricians, RB (23.3% above the league average) and DEF (17.5%) are projected as especially strong units.
- Hit the Waiver Wire: Amish Electricians might need to hit the waiver wire in Week 9, as both QBs they selected will be on bye that week (Eli Manning and Carson Palmer).
- Turning the Tables: The coach of Amish Electricians must have arrived late to the draft party. After picking up the fewest projected points in the league over the draft's first half, they accumulated the most during the second half.
- It's How You Finish: Amish Electricians had a strong finish, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
- Mr. Mendoza: Robert Woods is owned in fewer than 10% of Yahoo! leagues (2%). Let's hope that a.) Amish Electricians has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.
- Consistency Is My Middle Name: With 10 consistent players among their 16 picks, Amish Electricians is looking for reliable help.

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.
