Corresponding with a solid draft slot (fourth overall), Stephen's Team had a stellar showing. With a mark of 10-4-0 (1,565 points), they're projected to finish third in The River DFW League. They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Russell Wilson (45th overall), RB Mark Ingram (28th), WR Julio Jones (4th), and TE Travis Kelce (52nd) within the first five rounds. They also have the most prolific group of WRs in the league, as they have Jones, Mike Evans, and John Brown.
Stephen's Team should drop off the grid during Week 5. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a softer-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 Stephen's Team.
Stockpiling Talent at WR
Stephen's Team should be in good shape with three position groups projected to be better-than-average. WR is definitely the strongest among them.
Close to the Vest
Stephen's Team was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Stephen's Team will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 7, as their only K (Graham Gano) and only DEF (Carolina) will both be on bye that week.
A Pair of Proven Winners
Stephen's Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Julio Jones and Mark Ingram) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
Stephen's Team nabbed a sleeper in Robert Griffin III with pick No. 172.
Marcus Mariota Likes His Eggs Scrambled
And a little runny, eh? Mariota is projected to deliver 378 rushing yards, and ranks fifth among QBs in that category.
Just Heave it to Julio
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 1, Pick 4
The lone NFL player to see 200 targets last season, only DeAndre Hopkins appeared on more first-place rosters than Jones in 2015.
173 Reasons for Stephen's Team to Appreciate Mike Evans
- Mike Evans, WR
- Round 2, Pick 21
Evans ranks 10th in the The River DFW League among WRs with 173 projected fantasy points.
Wait For It
- Mark Ingram, RB
- Round 3, Pick 28
Stephen's Team held off on drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to snag their "lead back" (Mark Ingram).
Effective, Efficient, and Elite
- Russell Wilson, QB
- Round 4, Pick 45
Wilson joined Brady and Rodgers as the only QBs to throw for more than 25 touchdowns and have fewer than 10 interceptions last season.
A Big, Reliable Threat
- Travis Kelce, TE
- Round 5, Pick 52
Travis Kelce ranks fifth in the The River DFW League among TEs with 118 projected fantasy points.
While Stephen's Team is projected to have three subpar positions, RB is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.
- Jay Ajayi
- Rank 143, ADP 102
- James White
- Rank 147, ADP 124
- Darren Sproles
- Rank 154, ADP 122
- Dion Lewis
- Rank 163, ADP 93

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.
