Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, Tuff's Terrific Team Is Good Enough to Barely Miss Playoffs

Draft Summary

Maybe if Tuff's Terrific Team purchases a lift kit and some giant tires for this roster it won't seem so average. The playoffs are not out of reach for this team, but it will require some effort. They are projected to finish sixth in Yahoo Public 639029 with a record of 5-9-0 (1,363 points). With five WRs on the roster, Tuff's Terrific Team guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 143, their WRs projected average of 150 points won't be much different than the rest of the wideouts around the league. They built the bottom QB pair in the league, as they added Matthew Stafford and Josh McCown.

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

Schedule

Tuff's Terrific Team should just disappear for a while during Week 9. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the least challenging schedules. Along with having the third-easiest overall schedule, Tuff's Terrific Team also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
