Andy Dufresne once said that "Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies." Sadly, hope might be the only thing that GODZILLA THRILLAZ can cling to as their playoff aspirations are dwindling quickly. They picked eighth overall in HitemUp Classic League and are forecasted to finish seventh with a record of 5-9-0 (2,983 points). They went after the QB spot right out of the gate, using their first two selections on Tony Romo (8th overall) and Sam Bradford (13th). They put together one of the bottom groups of WRs in the league, as they added T.Y. Hilton, Percy Harvin, Phillip Dorsett, and Michael Floyd.
While Week 8 has the most players on bye for GODZILLA THRILLAZ (four), Week 6 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have an easier-than-average schedule. Along with having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, GODZILLA THRILLAZ also has the league's second-easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.
GODZILLA THRILLAZ is stacked at QB, but RB isn't too shabby, either.

The Bargain Whisperer

Thanks for Clearing That Up, Terry
- Tony Romo, QB
- Round 1, Pick 8
Terry Bradshaw once said “I may be dumb, but I'm not stupid.” GODZILLA THRILLAZ hopes that drafting Tony Romo and his 32.9 projected passing TDs was a choice that Bradshaw wouldn't make.
If it Ain't Broke
- Jeremy Hill, RB
- Round 3, Pick 28
Then do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, GODZILLA THRILLAZ didn't grab their first RB (Jeremy Hill) until the third round.

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.
