Corresponding with a solid draft slot (fourth overall), The Rice Bitch Slap had a stellar showing. With a mark of 11-3-0 (1,385 points), they're projected to finish first in PAUL's FF League. They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Jordy Nelson (second round), Michael Floyd (fourth round), and Michael Crabtree (fifth round). They have the most prolific group of RBs in the league, as they added Jamaal Charles, Arian Foster, Steven Jackson, and Mark Ingram to their roster.

Along with having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, The Rice Bitch Slap has the toughest first four games of the season.

Rethinking That One

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.

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.
