    Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, bananaboatmills Drafted Like a Yahoo Expert

    Draft Summary

    bananaboatmills took the first overall pick and wove it into fantasy gold with an expected finish of second in Yahoo Public 490964 League. Their 10-4-0 projected record is no joke and opponents will need to pull out all the stops if they hope to knock off bananaboatmills. 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 Julio Jones (second round), Wes Welker (fourth round), and Pierre Garcon (fifth round). This group will have to produce in order for bananaboatmills to have a good season, as they are the most prolific group of WRs in the league.

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

    Week 10 might require some artful managing from bananaboatmills. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye 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.
