Even though Twelve2Thirteen didn't have a high draft pick (seventh overall), it didn't matter, as they built a legit squad capable of taking it to any opponent that gets in their way. As far as projections go, they will probably finish first in Stampede Blue League 6 League with a record of 11-2-0 (1,648 points). They obviously understand how important the running back position is in fantasy football. They used three of their first five picks on RBs Andre Ellington (second round), Doug Martin (third round), and Bishop Sankey (fifth round). They landed the bottom QB duo in the league, as they added Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown.
Twelve2Thirteen should use Week 7 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. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the least difficult slate. Twelve2Thirteen has the opportunity to finish the season on a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Believing in the Buccaneers
The fantasy hopes of Twelve2Thirteen will rest heavily on the fortunes of Lovie's new crew, as they loaded up with four Bucs on their roster.
Strength in Numbers
TE is the best position for Twelve2Thirteen, though DEF and WR are also stronger-than-average.
Twelve2Thirteen elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

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.
