Led by a Quality Group of RBs, The Re-Re's Is a Force to be Reckoned With

Draft Summary

This could be a dream season for The Re-Re's, who landed the top overall pick and then drafted a team capable of winning the whole damn thing. With a roster that has very few weaknesses, they are projected to finish in first place in VBowl League with a mark of 12-2-0 (2,384 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Drew Brees (40th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (1st) and Justin Forsett (21st), and WRs Randall Cobb (20th) and Davante Adams (41st). They ended up with the best group of RBs in the league, as they have Peterson, Forsett, C.J. Spiller, and Shane Vereen for their rotation.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.

Schedule

The Re-Re's should drop off the grid during Week 9. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the weakest slate. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, The Re-Re's also has the league's second-easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

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.
