"With the fifth pick in the draft, Slob On My Cobb selects: Tim Tebow." OK maybe it wasn't that bad, but it might as well have been. Despite being gifted a favorable draft position (fifth), Slob On My Cobb is expected to struggle, finishing eighth in Pig Rig League with a record of 6-8-0 (2,212 points). With their first five picks, Slob On My Cobb aimed for balance, selecting QB Russell Wilson (25th overall), RBs Jamaal Charles (5th) and Carlos Hyde (45th), and WRs Randall Cobb (16th) and Emmanuel Sanders (36th). They have the lowest-scoring TE combo in the league, as they added Owen Daniels and Coby Fleener.
Slob On My Cobb might as well plan a vacation for Week 9. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-difficult-than-average schedule. Despite having the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, Slob On My Cobb actually has the second-softest last four games of the season.

An All-Purpose Stat-Stuffer

Knowing When to Take Off
- Russell Wilson, QB
- Round 3, Pick 25
He won't get too flashy in the passing game, but the ability to create with his legs makes Wilson a legitimate threat to NFL defenses -- and to future fantasy opponents of Slob On My Cobb.
- E. Sanders, WR
- Round 4, Pick 36
A bargain at his ADP last season, Sanders was one of just four WRs to notch 100 receptions in 2014. The secret is out, but Slob On My Cobb obviously knows this WR2 is as good a bet as any to post WR1-esque numbers.
Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery

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.
