Led by a Quality Group of RBs, TR620's Nice Team Is a Force to be Reckoned With

Draft Summary

TR620's Nice Team took the last pick in the draft and built the kind of roster that makes opponents "go out of town" or "spend time with the kids" when they see your team on the schedule. While the rest of the league runs and hides, TR620's Nice Team is projected to finish first in The River DFW League at 13-1-0 (1,575 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs A.J. Green (first round), Allen Robinson (second round), and Eric Decker (fifth round). TR620's Nice Team will rely heavily on this group, as they are one of the most prolific groups of WRs in the league.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.

Schedule

TR620's Nice Team should use Week 5 to finally build that mini trainyard. Really just about anything other than checking fantasy football will do. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the softest schedules. TR620's Nice Team has the opportunity to exit the gates quickly, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

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.
