r's Outstanding Team took advantage of the top pick in the draft and built the kind of roster that makes opponents "go out of town" or "spend time with the kids" when they see your team on the schedule.

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.
