Entering the draft with the fifth overall pick, the expectations were high for Coleman's Trannies. Then they drafted. Those expectations quickly vanished with a projected ninth-place finish in DENTITES League at 4-10-0 (1,294 points). They loaded up on ball carriers early, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs Le'Veon Bell (second round), Andre Ellington (third round), and C.J. Spiller (fourth round). If these players can play up to expectations, Coleman's Trannies can have some success. They are a better-than-average group of RBs.
Week 9 may cause some frustration for Coleman's Trannies, as their top two projected scorers (Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson) will be off that weekend. Looking at the entire season, they have the most difficult slate. Along with having the most demanding overall schedule, Coleman's Trannies also has the most difficult last four games of the season.

The Standard by Which All Others are Measured

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.
