With a Projected Finish of Ninth, jackson's Bold Team Hopefully Isn't Playing for Money

Draft Summary

It was almost too hard to watch as jackson's Bold Team took the fourth pick and drove any playoff hopes they had right off a cliff. They are projected to finish 4-10-0 (1,903), bad enough for a ninth-place finish in FG Football League. They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs Randall Cobb (third round), Jeremy Maclin (fourth round), and Brandon Marshall (fifth round). They ended up with one of the most prolific QB pairs in the league, as they added Aaron Rodgers and Tony Romo to their squad.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.

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.
