Picking 12th, BG Extreme built a team that probably isn't even worth talking about. It wouldn't be fair to give the good teams a recap and not the bad ones, though, so here goes. They are expected to finish 10th in Password is Taco League with a record of 5-9-0 (1,523 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Drew Brees (12th overall), RBs Matt Forte (13th) and Alfred Morris (37th), and WRs Andre Johnson (36th) and Larry Fitzgerald (60th). They landed one of the most prolific QB combos in the league, as they have Brees and Philip Rivers on the roster.
BG Extreme should pick up a new hobby, like bird watching, during Week 10. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. BG Extreme has the opportunity to come out firing, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Doing It By Committee

Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

Take One Play Off and He Burns You
Terrance Williams is a classic deep-ball weapon, ranking fourth among NFL WRs in percentage of receptions over 40 yards (7.4%).

Feed Thy Beast
- Matt Forte, RB
- Round 2, Pick 13
Matt Forte will get the ball early and often, projected to finish seventh in the league with 306 touches.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

It Was a Learning Experience
- L. Fitzgerald, WR
- Round 5, Pick 60
Hey, remember that time BG Extreme took Larry Fitzgerald WAY too early and the entire draft room erupted in laughter? Fitzgerald was the weakest value pick of the round.
Taking a Chance
- Mason Crosby, K
- Round 6, Pick 61
With their sixth-round pick, BG Extreme threw caution to the wind. They took Mason Crosby at pick number 61 despite an ADP of 101.8 across all Yahoo! leagues.

- Rank 112, ADP 129
- Brian Quick
- Rank 116, ADP 130
- Ladarius Green
- Rank 150, ADP 133

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.
