With six WRs on the roster, Tam's Touchdowners has a star-studded wideout group that's projected to average 161 points this season. The league average is 138. They also built the best group of WRs in the league, as they have Antonio Brown, Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb, and John Brown on their team.

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.

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.
