    Led by a Quality Group of RBs, Gatto's Six Kickers Has Shot at Winning League

    Draft Summary

    Gatto's Six Kickers took advantage of a favorable draft slot and built the kind of roster that makes opponents "go out of town" or "spend time with the kids" when they see your team on the schedule. Gatto's Six Kickers is projected to finish third in PAUL's FF League at 10-4-0 (1,398 points). They went with the SMU "Pony Express" draft strategy, loading up on three tailbacks in the first five rounds, selecting LeSean McCoy (first round), Giovani Bernard (second round), and Rashad Jennings (fourth round). Gatto's Six Kickers will rely heavily on this group, as they are one of the best groups of RBs in the league.

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

    Schedule

    Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Gatto's Six Kickers has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the easiest schedules. Gatto's Six Kickers will need to be playing their best as the playoffs approach, as the last four games of their season are projected to be more difficult than the league average.

    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.
