Putting together a decent team, Them Boyz didn't want to show up the Tilt B Shift League and build some unbeatable juggernaut. They instead focused on building a team with a good chance to make the playoffs. Humbly, they are expected to finish in fourth-place in Tilt B Shift League at 8-6-0 (2,333 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Ben Roethlisberger (33rd overall), RB LeSean McCoy (28th), WR DeAndre Hopkins (8th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (13th) within the first five rounds. They also have one of the best QB duos in the league, as they added Roethlisberger and Carson Palmer to their squad.
Them Boyz should pick up a new hobby, like bird watching, during Week 9. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the easiest slates. Along with having the third-easiest overall schedule, Them Boyz has the second-softest last four games of the season.
Them Boyz has five positions that are better than league average. While DEF, QB, and K are projected to be good, RB is the strongest on Them Boyz.
AARP Card's in the Mail
With an average of 7.9 years of NFL experience, Them Boyz is the team most likely to have a player qualify for a senior citizen discount.
Team of Champions
Them Boyz is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy rosters, including DeAndre Hopkins, Rob Gronkowski, and Carson Palmer.
The Bargain Whisperer
Them Boyz was hunting for deals throughout the draft, snapping up four steals in the first 10 rounds (including C.J. Anderson, Thomas Rawls, and Randall Cobb).
If other Yahoo! users are right, Them Boyz got a steal in the ninth round, when they selected C.J. Anderson (88th overall pick vs. ADP of 29.4).
A Large Target for the QB
Coby Fleener ranks third in the Tilt B Shift League among TEs with 205 projected fantasy points.
Targeting the Texan
- D. Hopkins, WR
- Round 1, Pick 8
Hopkins was one of just three wideouts (along with Julio Jones and Antonio Brown) to get at least 190 targets last year, and only Devonta Freeman and Tom Brady appeared more often on championship rosters than Houston's stud WR.
A Repeat for Rob
- Rob Gronkowski, TE
- Round 2, Pick 13
For the second straight year, Gronkowski appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than any other TE.
How Rebellious of You
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 3, Pick 28
Them Boyz said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (LeSean McCoy).
Like a Prancing Unicorn
- B. Roethlisberger, QB
- Round 4, Pick 33
Ben Roethlisberger is a fantasy dream. He's predicted to finish third in the NFL in passing TDs and second in passing yards. If he lives up to those numbers, it should mean good things for Them Boyz.
Earning His Keep
- Carson Palmer, QB
- Round 5, Pick 48
Carson Palmer is projected to finish fifth in the NFL in passing TDs with 29.7 and seventh in passing yards with 4,444.
Them Boyz has one below-average position, WR, that they should attempt to upgrade.
- Donte Moncrief
- Rank 42, ADP 63
- Golden Tate
- Rank 48, ADP 49
- Jordan Matthews
- Rank 55, ADP 70
- John Brown
- Rank 62, ADP 84

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.
