    Coinciding with Some Early-Round Reaches, YouGuysEvenLiftBro? Still Has Work To Do

    Draft Summary

    Maybe these pre-season projections will get YouGuysEvenLiftBro? to play with a chip on their shoulder. It's definitely going to require some sort of extra effort if they hope to reach the playoffs. Hell, it may require extra effort just to get a win. YouGuysEvenLiftBro? is projected to go 3-11-0 (1,277 points) and finish 10th in DENTITES League. 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 A.J. Green (second round), Keenan Allen (fourth round), and Pierre Garcon (fifth round). They ended up with one of the worst groups of RBs in the league, as they added Marshawn Lynch, Trent Richardson, and Lamar Miller to the team.

    Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    Week 10 might require some additional effort if they hope to win, as their top two projected scorers (Tom Brady and Philip Rivers) will have a bye week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the toughest schedules. Along with having the second-most taxing overall schedule, YouGuysEvenLiftBro? also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

      RB and TE are both projected to be really solid units for YouGuysEvenLiftBro?.

    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.
