    Ronald's Team Draft Report Card

    Grade

    With a Projected Finish of Fourth, Ronald's Team Will Likely Reach Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    Ronald's Team took a high draft pick and turned it into a playoff-caliber squad with a projected record of 8-6-0 (1,336). They should be able to roll through most of Yahoo Public 56212 League on their way to a projected fourth-place finish. They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Alshon Jeffery (third round), Pierre Garcon (fourth round), and Roddy White (fifth round). They put together a better-than-average group of RBs, as they added Eddie Lacy, Le'Veon Bell, and Pierre Thomas to the team.

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

    Schedule

    Week 9 is not looking like a fun one for fantasy football. Ronald's Team should look into the joys of scrapbooking, or bird-watching, or just keep Ronald's Team away from the TV. It won't be pretty. They have seven 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. In addition to having the second-easiest overall schedule, Ronald's Team also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

    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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
