Beauty-N-D-BeastMode got saddled with a late draft position (eighth overall) and didn't respond. The poor draft slot will have to serve as the excuse as to why they are projected to land in 11th place in SigEp AVC 1 League with a record of 4-9-0 (2,056 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Demaryius Thomas (first round), A.J. Green (second round), and Golden Tate (fourth round). They put together the lowest-scoring group of RBs in the league, as they have Mark Ingram, Doug Martin, Roy Helu Jr., and Ronnie Hillman on their roster.
While Week 8 has the most players on bye for Beauty-N-D-BeastMode (four), Week 7 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the most challenging schedules. In addition to having the second-most grueling overall schedule, Beauty-N-D-BeastMode also has the most difficult last four games of the season.

Did Stretch Armstrong Make That Pick?

Hey, remember that time Beauty-N-D-BeastMode took Doug Martin WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Martin was the weakest value pick of the round.

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.
