The 0-16 Lions had a better shot at being competitive compared to the roster Will's Swag Team has put together. They will most likely live in the cellar of Yahoo Public 665926 League as they're projected to finish with a record of 1-13-0 (1,188). With their first five picks, Will's Swag Team aimed for balance, selecting QB Cam Newton (50th overall), RBs Montee Ball (10th) and C.J. Spiller (30th), and WRs A.J. Green (11th) and Keenan Allen (31st). They landed one of the lowest-scoring groups of RBs in the league, as they added Ball, Spiller, and Bishop Sankey.
While Week 9 has the most players on bye for Will's Swag Team (five), Week 4 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the most difficult slate.

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.

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.
