Isiah Thompson holds the slowest 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine in the last decade with a mark of 6.02 seconds. That's still faster than this start to the season will be for luis's Genius Team, which is projected to finish second in Yahoo Public 391938 League with a record of 10-4-0 (1,568 points). With five WRs on the roster, luis's Genius Team has a quality group of receivers; their WRs are projected to average 144 points this season, near the league average of 142. They ended up with one of the highest-scoring groups of WRs in the league, as they added Julio Jones, Allen Robinson and Larry Fitzgerald for their rotation.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, luis's Genius Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. In addition to having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, luis's Genius Team has the softest last four games of the season.
Choosing which WRs to start should be pretty obvious most weeks for luis's Genius Team, as projections show a healthy point difference between their third-ranked (Larry Fitzgerald) and fourth-ranked (Vincent Jackson) wideouts.

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.
