In Spite of Some Early-Round Reaches, Sean Roberts D-bag Will be a Tough Team

Draft Summary

Putting together a playoff-caliber roster, Sean Roberts D-bag didn't break any records with this draft, but they put together a quality team that will be tough to match up against. Looking at their schedule, they figure to reach the playoffs with a 9-5-0 (1,411) record and fourth-place finish in PAUL's FF League. They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Peyton Manning (19th overall), RB Matt Forte (6th), WR Antonio Brown (30th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (43rd) within the first five rounds. They landed one of the worst groups of RBs in the league, as they added Forte, Maurice Jones-Drew, Danny Woodhead, and Darren Sproles.

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

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.
