If there was a Hall of Average, Barrett Won't Lose would have a plaque. Unfortunately, there isn't, so instead they'll just have to settle for losing more often than not. This team is projected to finish in ninth-place in Hafa Dai Ahead League at 5-8-0 (2,239 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Ben Roethlisberger (65th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (9th) and Jonathan Stewart (48th), and WRs Mike Evans (20th) and Jordy Nelson (37th). They put together a quality group of RBs, as they have Peterson, Stewart, T.J. Yeldon, and Chris Ivory on their roster.
Week 8 might require some waiver-wire magic from Barrett Won't Lose. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Along with the seventh-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Barrett Won't Lose.
Doing It By Committee
By picking up a pair of Jacksonville Jaguars RBs in the middle rounds of the draft (Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon), Barrett Won't Lose will be hoping there are enough fantasy points to go around in that backfield.
TE is the strongest position for Barrett Won't Lose, though QB and WR aren't too shabby either.
On the Rise
Barrett Won't Lose hopes to break through this season, led by four players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.
The top half of the roster (from a projected points perspective) is relatively old (ranked No. 3 in the league with an average of 6.8 years of NFL experience), whereas the bottom half is fairly young (ranked No. 13 with 3.7 years).
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, Barrett Won't Lose picked only one player at three different positions (QB, TE, and DEF).
You Snooze, You Lose

Feed Thy Beast

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.
