    Grade

    With a Projected Finish of Second, Jos of Life Has a Team to Watch

    Draft Summary

    Jos of Life took advantage of a favorable draft slot and built the kind of roster that makes opponents "go out of town" or "spend time with the kids" when they see your team on the schedule. Jos of Life is projected to finish second in BadNewzKennels/Fantasy League! League at 12-2-0 (1,620 points). They went after guys who can tote the rock with their early picks, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs LeSean McCoy (first round), Andre Ellington (third round), and Ryan Mathews (fourth round). This group will have to produce in order for Jos of Life to have a good season, as they are one of the top RB tandems in the league.

    With a draft like that, you might as well make it official. Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Jos of Life has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Along with the fifth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Jos of Life.

    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.
