    Although They Stretched for Some Early Picks, steven's Legit Team Will be a Tough Team

    Draft Summary

    Picking late (eighth overall), steven's Legit Team did what they could with what they were given. While this team isn't a juggernaut by any means, it's a team capable of reaching the playoffs if the chips fall their way. They are expected to finish third in Any Given sWATTday with a record of 9-4-0 (1,343 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (8th overall), RB Marshawn Lynch (13th), WR Michael Crabtree (28th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (33rd) within the first five rounds. They ended up with the worst group of WRs in the league, as they have Michael Floyd, Crabtree, Golden Tate, and Brian Hartline on their team.

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

    Schedule

    steven's Legit Team can write off Week 10 as a scheduling injustice and use that time to consider other injustices: for example, why doesn't Chewbacca get a medal during the ceremony at the end of Star Wars? Wookie bias? They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least challenging slates. Corresponding with the third-easiest overall schedule, steven's Legit Team also has the league's second-easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

      • Round 1, Pick 8
      Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

      • Round 3, Pick 28
      Rethinking That One

      • Rob Gronkowski, TE
      • Round 4, Pick 33

      Was Defense a Smart Decision at Pick No. 53?

    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.
