Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, Lund's Team Will be a Tough Team

Draft Summary

Lund's Team delivered a solid draft performance, taking the fifth overall draft slot and turning it into a team with playoff potential. With an expected record of 10-4-0 (1,404 points), they're projected to finish third in Yahoo Public 490964 League. With five WRs on the roster, Lund's Team guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 143, their WRs projected average of 141 points won't be much different than the rest of the wideouts around the league. They ended up with one of the highest-scoring groups of RBs in the league, as they added Matt Forte, DeMarco Murray, and Ben Tate.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

Lund's Team might as well plan a vacation for Week 9. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. In addition to having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, Lund's Team also has the most difficult last four games of the season.

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.
