    Led by a Quality Group of RBs, troyburt's Team Will Likely Reach Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    It doesn't matter how you get to the playoffs, it only matters that you get there. troyburt's Team is a squad built to get there and is projected to finish third in Yahoo Public 784085 League with a record of 9-5-0 (1,351 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Brandon Marshall (second round), Vincent Jackson (fourth round), and Cordarrelle Patterson (fifth round). They ended up with the lowest-scoring TE pair in the league, as they have Kyle Rudolph and Tyler Eifert.

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

    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..."
