    Projected to Finish 10th, min's Team Will Be Alone at the Bottom

    Draft Summary

    Yikes. Was this on purpose? We'll assume it was and that maybe the GM min's Team was just having an off day. Some work will be required if min's Team wants to finish anywhere other than last. Projections suggest they'll go 1-13-0 (1,216 points). With five WRs on the roster, min's Team guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 141, their WRs projected average of 140 points won't be much different than the rest of the wideouts around the league. They ended up with one of the worst groups of RBs in the league, as they added Montee Ball, Ryan Mathews and Reggie Bush to their roster.

    Brutal draft. Still, you should nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame. That way, your players will have to live up to the pressure.

    Schedule

    min's Team should drop off the grid during Week 4. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the toughest slate. Along with the most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for min's Team.

    Draft Notes

    • I Keep Getting Older

      And they stay the same age. min's Team isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 3.7 years of NFL experience.

    • Going Out with a Whimper

      min's Team didn't end the night the way they might have liked, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

    • Big D

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

    • You Snooze, You Lose

      While the rest of the league slept on Kelvin Benjamin, min's Team pounced on him at pick No. 130.

    • He Can Catch, Too

      Reggie Bush is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fourth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 513.

    • Dual-Threat Dynamo

      Russell Wilson can deliver fantasy glory to min's Team with his arm and his legs. Wilson has 482 projected rushing yards, and ranks fourth among QBs in that category.

    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..."
