Putting together a decent team, 1BAMFR didn't want to show up the Any Given sWATTday League and build some unbeatable juggernaut. They instead focused on building a team with a good chance to make the playoffs. Humbly, they are expected to finish in fifth-place in Any Given sWATTday League at 7-6-0 (1,382 points). They must have done their homework on the WR position during the offseason. Filling the roster with quality WRs, their six wideouts are projected to average 148 points this season, beating the league average of 136. They landed one of the best groups of WRs in the league, as they added Demaryius Thomas, Vincent Jackson, Mike Wallace, and Marques Colston.
1BAMFR should use Week 4 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 a weaker-than-average slate. Along with the fifth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for 1BAMFR.
Carrying the Load
1BAMFR has a trio of above-average positions leading the way (TE, WR, and K).
Great Idea, Poor Execution
1BAMFR will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 4, as their only TE (Jordan Cameron) and only DEF (Arizona) will both be idle that week.
1BAMFR hedged their bets by scooping up James Starks in the 15th round to back up Eddie Lacy, his Packers teammate (a second-round selection).
A Pair of Proven Winners
1BAMFR has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Demaryius Thomas and Eddie Lacy) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
Mike Evans and Kelvin Benjamin are a couple of late-round fliers with decent upside for 1BAMFR.
No Back-Up No Cry
Ignoring roster depth, 1BAMFR chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
Death, Taxes, and Demaryius Thomas's Reliable Hands
- D. Thomas, WR
- Round 1, Pick 10
Thomas is projected to catch an NFL-leading 107 balls this year.
Does Eddie Lacy Enjoy Fajitas?
- Eddie Lacy, RB
- Round 2, Pick 11
Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Lacy is projected to rank 10th in the league with 1,501 all-purpose yards.
Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme
- Doug Martin, RB
- Round 3, Pick 30
Get on up, it's Doug Martin time! He's predicted to run cool this season with 189 projected points.
Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law
- V. Jackson, WR
- Round 4, Pick 31
Vincent Jackson is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 88 projected catches rank 10th in the league.
A Big, Reliable Threat
- Jordan Cameron, TE
- Round 5, Pick 50
Jordan Cameron ranks fourth in the Any Given sWATTday League among TEs with 126 projected fantasy points.
With three subpar positions on 1BAMFR, QB and DEF are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.
- Andy Dalton
- Rank 120, ADP 123
- Ryan Tannehill
- Rank 124, ADP 134
- Cincinnati Defense
- Rank 192, ADP 89
- Chicago Defense
- Rank 217, ADP 124

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.
