Putting together a decent team, Luck My (Foot)Balls didn't want to show up the The FFL League and build some unbeatable juggernaut. They instead focused on building a team with a good chance to make the playoffs. Humbly, they are expected to finish in fifth-place in The FFL League at 9-5-0 (1,557 points). The GM of Luck My (Foot)Balls obviously entered this draft knowing who their QB target was. They waited until the eighth round to pick their first quarterback, drafting Ryan Tannehill with the 88th overall pick. They ended up with the best group of RBs in the league, as they added Todd Gurley, LeSean McCoy, Latavius Murray, and James Starks to their roster.
Luck My (Foot)Balls should use Week 8 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like what was the greatest thing before sliced bread? No, seriously, think about it. It's better than thinking about fantasy football that week. Their top three projected scorers (Ryan Tannehill, Jared Goff and Todd Gurley) will be off with byes. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Luck My (Foot)Balls will have to be on top of their game as the playoffs approach, as the last four games of their season are projected to be more difficult than the league average.
Luck My (Foot)Balls is loaded at RB, but WR isn't too shabby, either.
Jimmy Garoppolo and Braxton Miller are a couple of late-round fliers with upside for Luck My (Foot)Balls.

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.
