In correlation with this draft, Stuart's Team has decided to open a nice little side business that teaches inferior opponents how to draft like a boss. After Stuart's Team hopped off the bus they used to take the rest of these kids to school, they built a roster that's projected to finish second in Stampede Blue League 5 League with a record of 11-2-0 (1,670 points). RB depth won't be the issue this season as Stuart's Team loaded up, drafting Eddie Lacy (8th overall), DeMarco Murray (17th), and Zac Stacy (32nd) with their first three selections. These players will be heavily relied upon by Stuart's Team, as they are the top group of RBs in the league.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Stuart's Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least difficult schedules. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, Stuart's Team has the easiest first four games of the season.
Strength in Numbers
TE is the best position for Stuart's Team, though RB and DEF are also stronger-than-average.

Show Some ID

It's How You Finish
Stuart's Team must have had a motivational halftime speech, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
Team of Champions
Stuart's Team is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including Eddie Lacy, DeMarco Murray, and Zac Stacy.
Does Eddie Lacy Enjoy Fajitas?
- Eddie Lacy, RB
- Round 1, Pick 8
Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Lacy is projected to rank eighth in the league with 1,538 all-purpose yards.
- DeMarco Murray, RB
- Round 2, Pick 17
Stuart's Team stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Eddie Lacy and DeMarco Murray before targeting other positions.
- Zac Stacy, RB
- Round 3, Pick 32
If Stuart's Team had a nickel for every time Zac Stacy is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 299 nickels.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Rob Gronkowski, TE
- Round 4, Pick 41
Rob Gronkowski was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
Was Defense the Best Choice at Pick No. 65?
- Seattle, DEF
- Round 6, Pick 65
Stuart's Team apparently thinks so. Seattle's Defense is projected to get 174 points this year, after putting up 197 last season.
If Stuart's Team wants to upgrade, QB and WR are areas they could go after first.
- Sam Bradford
- Rank 178, ADP 125
- Michael Vick
- Rank 229, ADP 122
- Kenny Stills
- Rank 129, ADP 131
- Aaron Dobson

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.
