Is someone going to put out that dumpster fire? Oh, whoops, that's not a dumpster fire that's the Burressted Dvlopment roster. Easy mistake with a team that needs this much work. As the roster stands, Burressted Dvlopment is projected to finish ninth in BNFL League with a record of 5-9-0 (1,950 points). They jumped on ball carriers early and often, using their first three selections to grab RBs Jamaal Charles (3rd overall), Giovani Bernard (18th), and Andre Ellington (23rd). This group will have to produce in order for Burressted Dvlopment to have a good season, as they are the best group of RBs in the league.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Burressted Dvlopment 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 a tougher-than-average slate. In addition to having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, Burressted Dvlopment has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.
Separating the Wheat from the Chaff
At three different positions, Burressted Dvlopment picked up projected top-two players (Jamaal Charles, Stephen Gostkowski, and Carolina).
The coach of Burressted Dvlopment might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted QB (Robert Griffin III) and second-drafted QB (Jay Cutler) have very similar seasonal point projections.

You Snooze, You Lose

Does Jamaal Charles Enjoy Fajitas?
- Jamaal Charles, RB
- Round 1, Pick 3
Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Charles is projected to rank second in the league with 1,724 all-purpose yards.

Andre Ellington is projected to finish sixth in the league with 1,506 total yards (1,035 rushing, 470 receiving).
- R. Griffin III, QB

Robert Griffin III can deliver fantasy glory to Burressted Dvlopment with his arm and his legs. Griffin III has 581 projected rushing yards, and ranks third among QBs in that category.
Was the 63rd Pick the Right Time for Greg Olsen?
- Greg Olsen, TE
- Round 7, Pick 63
Burressted Dvlopment apparently believes it is. The Panthers' tight end is projected to have 210 points this year, almost the same as his total from last year.

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.
