    Grade

    Led by a Stellar WR Corps, Stop Looking @ My TE Will Dominate the League

    Draft Summary

    Drafting 12th, Stop Looking @ My TE took advantage of their feeble-minded opponents and drafted a team capable of making some noise come playoff time. They are expected to finish second in Stampede Blue League 8 with a record of 10-3-0 (1,605 points). With six WRs on the roster, Stop Looking @ My TE has both quality and quantity at that spot; their WRs are projected to average 228 points this season, more than the league average of 205. They have the best group of WRs in the league, as they have Dez Bryant, Randall Cobb, Kendall Wright, and Emmanuel Sanders on their team.

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

    Schedule

    Stop Looking @ My TE can chalk up Week 11 as a big fat L. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. Along with the fifth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Stop Looking @ My TE.

    Draft Notes

    • Asset Management

    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.
