    Grade

    Although They Stretched for Some Early Picks, Bjoern to be Wild Built a Monster Team

    Draft Summary

    Corresponding with a solid draft slot (fifth overall), Bjoern to be Wild had a stellar showing. With a mark of 10-3-0 (1,666 points), they're projected to finish third in Stampede Blue League 5 League. They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Nick Foles (44th overall), RB Toby Gerhart (29th), WR Julio Jones (20th), and TE Jimmy Graham (5th) within the first five rounds. They have the top TE tandem in the league, as they have Graham and Heath Miller on their team.

    With a draft like that, you might as well make it official. Nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

    Schedule

    Bjoern to be Wild should use Week 6 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why don't the pants worn by Dr. Bruce Banner rip when he transforms into the Hulk? It's better to think about that than pay attention to fantasy football. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. Despite having the sixth-easiest overall schedule, Bjoern to be Wild actually has the toughest 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.
