jared's Team got saddled with a late draft position (seventh overall) and didn't respond. The poor draft slot will have to serve as the excuse as to why they are projected to land in 10th place in Yahoo Public 761889 League with a record of 1-13-0 (1,290 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Calvin Johnson (first round), A.J. Green (second round), and Percy Harvin (fifth round). They built the worst RB duo in the league, as they have Alfred Morris and Ryan Mathews on the roster.
While Week 10 has the most players on bye for jared's Team (four), Week 4 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the toughest schedules. Along with the second-most taxing overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for jared's Team.

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.
