KEVIN's Quality Team figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the fifth overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 9-5-0 (1,568 points). With that record, they will likely finish fifth in Yahoo Public 795587 League. They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Keenan Allen (second round), Jordy Nelson (third round), and Demaryius Thomas (fourth round). These players will be heavily relied upon by KEVIN's Quality Team, as they are a quality group of WRs.
KEVIN's Quality Team should use Week 11 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why do we park in a driveway but drive on a parkway? It will be better to think about that than to check fantasy football. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Along with the third-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for KEVIN's Quality 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. 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.
