Picking late (seventh overall), The Twisters. did what they could with what they were given. While this team isn't a juggernaut by any means, it's a team capable of reaching the playoffs if the chips fall their way. They are expected to finish fourth in Go Hard! with a record of 7-6-0 (1,559 points). They decided to get weird and waited until the sixth round to grab their first RB, Frank Gore, with the 42nd overall pick. They have the best QB tandem in the league, as they added Peyton Manning and Matthew Stafford.
Week 4 is not looking like a fun one for fantasy football. The Twisters. should look into the joys of scrapbooking, or bird-watching, or just keep The Twisters. away from the TV. It won't be pretty. Their top three projected scorers (Seattle, Cincinnati and Peyton Manning) will be off that weekend. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a harder-than-average schedule. The Twisters. has the opportunity to come out firing, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
The fantasy hopes of The Twisters. rest heavily on the fortunes of Peyton's crew, as they have four Broncos on their roster.
A Talented Trio
The Twisters. has three above-average positions on their roster (QB, DEF, and K).
The Twisters. must have had to leave their draft party early. After tallying the most projected points in the league over the draft's first half, they managed the fewest during the second half.
Close to the Vest
The Twisters. was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 17 picks.
Senior Citizen Discount
With an average of 7.7 years of NFL experience, The Twisters. is the team most likely to have a player become a grandpa.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Apparently The Twisters. missed the point of drafting a back-up defense. In Week 4, both Seattle and Cincinnati will be on bye.
A Mile-High Marvel
- Peyton Manning, QB
- Round 1, Pick 7
By fantasy standards, Peyton Manning's second season in Denver was his strongest as an NFL QB. He was owned on more championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues than any other quarterback.
Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law
- D. Thomas, WR
- Round 2, Pick 10
Demaryius Thomas is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 106 projected catches rank second in the league.
A Big Target in the Red Zone
- Julius Thomas, TE
- Round 4, Pick 26
With 8 projected TD catches, Julius Thomas ranks third in the NFL among TEs in that category.
How Rebellious of You
- Frank Gore, RB
- Round 6, Pick 42
The Twisters. said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the sixth round to pick up their first (Frank Gore).
Do You Know if Matthew Stafford is Religious?
- M. Stafford, QB
- Round 7, Pick 55
With 290 projected points, The Twisters. is hoping Stafford will be the answer to their prayers.
With three below-average positions on The Twisters., RB and TE are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.
- Pierre Thomas
- Rank 100, ADP 106
- Devonta Freeman
- Rank 109, ADP 124
- Ladarius Green
- Rank 133, ADP 130
- Tyler Eifert
- Rank 137, ADP 133

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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
