    mike's Team Draft Report Card

    B-
    Grade

    Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, mike's Team Is of the Average Variety

    Draft Summary

    If there was a Hall of Average, mike's Team would have a plaque. Unfortunately, there isn't, so instead they'll just have to settle for losing more often than not. This team is projected to finish in sixth-place in Yahoo Public 803059 League at 6-8-0 (1,316 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Calvin Johnson (first round), Vincent Jackson (fourth round), and Michael Floyd (fifth round). mike's Team will rely heavily on this group, as they are one of the top groups of WRs in the league.

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

    Schedule

    Week 4 would be a good opportunity for mike's Team to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the most challenging slates. Corresponding with the second-most taxing overall schedule, mike's Team also has the league's second-toughest first four games and most difficult 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.
