    With a Projected Finish of Second, bob's Neat Team Can Compete With Anyone

    Draft Summary

    Drafting eighth, bob's Neat Team took advantage of their feeble-minded opponents and drafted a team capable of making some noise come playoff time. They are expected to finish second in Yahoo Public 737422 with a record of 10-4-0 (1,367 points). With five WRs on the roster, bob's Neat Team loaded up on solid pass catchers; their WRs are projected to average 148 points this season, close to the league average of 141. They ended up with one of the top TE duos in the league, as they have Rob Gronkowski and Delanie Walker.

    Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

    Schedule

    Week 10 is not looking like a fun one for fantasy football. bob's Neat Team should look into the joys of scrapbooking, or bird-watching, or just keep bob's Neat Team away from the TV. It won't be pretty. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the weakest schedules. Along with having the second-easiest overall schedule, bob's Neat Team has the league's second-easiest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.

    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.
