Maybe if Strong's Men purchases a lift kit and some giant tires for this roster it won't seem so average. The playoffs are not out of reach for this team, but it will require some effort. They are projected to finish seventh in Dallas Premier Football with a record of 7-6-0 (2,528 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Russell Wilson (41st overall), RB Jeremy Hill (17th), WR DeSean Jackson (56th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (8th) within the first five rounds. They put together the best TE pair in the league, as they have Gronkowski and Larry Donnell.
Week 9 would be a good opportunity for Strong's Men to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a harder-than-average slate. Along with the sixth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Strong's Men.
Strong's Men is stacked at TE, but WR isn't too shabby, either.

The Bargain Whisperer
Strong's Men was hunting for steals throughout the draft, snapping up a trio of bargains in the first 10 rounds (Adam Vinatieri, Philadelphia, and Russell Wilson).
If other Yahoo! users are right, Strong's Men got a steal in the 10th round, when they selected Adam Vinatieri (113th overall pick vs. ADP of 82).
Did Stretch Armstrong Make That Pick?
Grabbing David Bruton Jr. at pick 128 was definitely a reach. Bruton Jr. is owned on just a handful of teams across all Yahoo! leagues.
He Transforms Into a Raging Kleptomaniac when the Ball's in the Air
Patrick Peterson is projected to rob QBs to the tune of four interceptions this year (second among all CBs).
A Modern-Day Threat, Sort of Like "Beliebers"
- Rob Gronkowski, TE
- Round 1, Pick 8
TE is the new secret weapon in the NFL, and Rob Gronkowski leads the way with 268 projected fantasy points.
It's not that Gio Bernard Wasn't Good
- Jeremy Hill, RB
- Round 2, Pick 17
It's that Jeremy Hill was just that great. The first-year RB from LSU led all rookies in rush attempts (222), rushing yards (1,124), and rush TDs (9).
Miller is Hungry
- Lamar Miller, RB
- Round 3, Pick 32
And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank ninth in the NFL with 293 touches.
Knowing When to Take Off
- Russell Wilson, QB
- Round 4, Pick 41
He won't get too flashy in the passing game, but the ability to create with his legs makes Wilson a legitimate threat to NFL defenses -- and to future fantasy opponents of Strong's Men.
Was the 65th Pick the Right Time for Keenan Allen?
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 6, Pick 65
Strong's Men apparently believes it is. The Chargers' wide receiver is projected to earn 246 points this year, after putting up 189 last year.
There are four positions that Strong's Men could look to upgrade, including RB, which looks like their biggest area of need.
- Jonas Gray
- Rank 151, ADP 121
- Ronnie Hillman
- Rank 156, ADP 122
- Charles Sims
- Rank 160, ADP 125
- Knile Davis
- Rank 177, ADP 126

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.
