    Projected to Finish 10th, Will's Swag Team Will Be Chillin' in the Basement Like it's High School

    Draft Summary

    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.

    Brutal draft. Still, you should nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame. That way, your players will have to live up to the pressure.

    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.
