With a Projected Finish of 12th, RedeyedColoradoColts Is Going to Have a Rough Season

Draft Summary

Picking 10th, RedeyedColoradoColts built a team that probably isn't even worth talking about. It wouldn't be fair to give the good teams a recap and not the bad ones, though, so here goes. They are expected to finish 12th in Stampede Blue League 8 League with a record of 2-11-0 (1,524 points). They waited until the ninth round to secure their top quarterback, picking up Colin Kaepernick with the 106th overall selection. They have the best TE duo in the league, as they have Rob Gronkowski and Jordan Cameron.

Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

Schedule

RedeyedColoradoColts can chalk up Week 4 as a big fat L. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the easiest slates. RedeyedColoradoColts has a chance to come out of the gate hot and close strong, as both the first four games and final four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

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.
