While this draft by Keith's Cool Team didn't exactly set the world on fire, it didn't destroy their playoff aspirations either. They are expected to be in the mix for a playoff spot with a projected fifth-place finish in Go Hard! League at 6-7-0 (1,593 points). They focused on having a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (22nd overall), RB Eddie Lacy (6th), WR Jordy Nelson (27th), and TE Jimmy Graham (11th) within the first five rounds. They built the highest-scoring TE tandem in the league, as they added Graham and Dennis Pitta.
Keith's Cool Team can chalk up Week 9 as a loss. They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. Although they have the fourth-easiest overall schedule, Keith's Cool Team actually has the second-toughest first four games of the season.
The fantasy hopes of Keith's Cool Team rest heavily on the fortunes of Green Bay, as they loaded up with four Packers on their roster.

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.
