"With the third pick in the draft, Myron's Swell Team selects: Tim Tebow." OK maybe it wasn't that bad, but it might as well have been. Despite being gifted a favorable draft position (third), Myron's Swell Team is expected to struggle, finishing eighth in C.R.E.A.M League with a record of 4-9-0 (2,212 points). RB depth won't be the issue this season as Myron's Swell Team loaded up, drafting Jamaal Charles (3rd overall), Jeremy Hill (18th), and Justin Forsett (23rd) with their first three selections. They built one of the bottom groups of WRs in the league, as they have Andre Johnson, Allen Robinson, and Jordan Matthews on the roster.
While Week 9 has the most players on bye for Myron's Swell Team (four), Week 10 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a softer-than-average slate. 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 Myron's Swell Team.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Myron's Swell Team might require waiver wire help in Week 9, as their No. 1- (Jamaal Charles), No. 2- (Justin Forsett) and No. 4-ranked (Ameer Abdullah) RBs will all be idle that week.

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.
