Zack's Primo Team delivered a solid draft performance, taking the third overall draft slot and turning it into a team with playoff potential. With an expected record of 9-5-0 (1,359 points), they're projected to finish third in Yahoo Public 411928 League. They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Jordy Nelson (third round), Pierre Garcon (fourth round), and Percy Harvin (fifth round). They landed one of the most prolific RB duos in the league, as they added Adrian Peterson and Le'Veon Bell.
Week 10 might require some additional effort if they hope to win, as their top two projected scorers (Andrew Luck and Adrian Peterson) will be relaxing at home that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a tougher-than-average slate. Corresponding with the third-most grueling overall schedule, Zack's Primo Team also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

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.
