Putting together a decent team, 'The Steel Deal' didn't want to show up the Go Hard! League and build some unbeatable juggernaut. They instead focused on building a team with a good chance to make the playoffs. Humbly, they are expected to finish in third-place in Go Hard! League at 7-6-0 (1,567 points). With their first five picks, 'The Steel Deal' aimed for balance, selecting QB Andrew Luck (28th overall), RBs Marshawn Lynch (5th) and C.J. Spiller (37th), and WRs A.J. Green (12th) and Julio Jones (21st). They built the best group of WRs in the league, as they have Jones, Green, Vincent Jackson, and Julian Edelman for their rotation.
Week 12 could be a frustrating one for 'The Steel Deal', as their top two projected scorers (Carolina and Pittsburgh) will be off that weekend. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the easiest schedules. Although they have the third-easiest overall schedule, 'The Steel Deal' actually has the most difficult last four games of the season.

Was the 44th Pick the Right Time for Vincent Jackson?

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.
