    With a Projected Finish of Fifth, David's Team Has a Squad Built to Reach the Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    Putting together a playoff-caliber roster, David's Team didn't break any records with this draft, but they put together a quality team that will be tough to match up against. Looking at their schedule, they figure to reach the playoffs with a 8-6-0 (1,339) record and fifth-place finish in Yahoo Public 767709 League. They have five decent WRs on the roster that are projected to average 148 points this season, near the league average of 141. They put together the worst TE combo in the league, as they have Julius Thomas and Tim Wright.

    Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

    Schedule

    Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, David's Team has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-difficult-than-average slate. Along with having the third-most grueling overall schedule, David's Team also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Good Luck With That One!

      David's Team will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Mike Wallace), fourth- (Torrey Smith), and fifth-ranked (Terrance Williams) wideouts.

    • Team of Champions

      David's Team is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (LeSean McCoy, Alshon Jeffery, and Julius Thomas).

    • Defense Wins Championships?

      David's Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

    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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
