LouiseP's Swag Team landed the top spot and then made an example of the rest of the league. Everyone else might as well throw in the towel because LouiseP's Swag Team is the clear front-runner, projected to finish first in Password is Taco League with a record of 11-3-0 (1,656 points). They went after the diva position early, using three of their first five selections on WRs A.J. Green (second round), Emmanuel Sanders (fourth round), and Golden Tate (fifth round). They put together the highest-scoring group of RBs in the league, as they added Marshawn Lynch, DeMarco Murray, Arian Foster, and C.J. Spiller.
LouiseP's Swag Team should use Week 9 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 five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a softer-than-average slate. Along with the fifth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for LouiseP's Swag Team.
RB is the strongest position for LouiseP's Swag Team, though DEF and WR aren't too shabby either.
Team of Champions
LouiseP's Swag Team is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, five of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including DeMarco Murray, Emmanuel Sanders, and Jeremy Maclin.
It's How You Finish
LouiseP's Swag Team must have had a motivational halftime speech, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
With their ninth-round pick, LouiseP's Swag Team pulled the trigger. They drafted Owen Daniels at pick number 97 despite an ADP of just 112.6 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Jared Cook is owned in only 2% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) LouiseP's Swag Team has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.
He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy
- Marshawn Lynch, RB
- Round 1, Pick 1
With 313 touches, Marshawn Lynch is projected to rank fourth in the NFL in that category. How touching, LouiseP's Swag Team.
171 More Reasons to Appreciate A.J. Green
- A.J. Green, WR
- Round 2, Pick 24
Green ranks ninth in the Password is Taco League among WRs with 171 projected fantasy points.
The Heist Is On
- DeMarco Murray, RB
- Round 3, Pick 25
The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, LouiseP's Swag Team got a steal in snatching DeMarco Murray in the third round (25th overall pick vs. ADP of 13.2).
- E. Sanders, WR
- Round 4, Pick 48
A bargain at his ADP last season, Sanders was one of just four WRs to notch 100 receptions in 2014. The secret is out, but LouiseP's Swag Team obviously knows this WR2 is as good a bet as any to post WR1-esque numbers.
Return on Investment
- Cam Newton, QB
- Round 6, Pick 72
The Panthers inked their signal-caller to a nine-figure contract this offseason, and LouiseP's Swag Team hopes Cam will pay immediate dividends for Carolina.
There are three positions that LouiseP's Swag Team could look to improve, including TE and QB, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Ladarius Green
- Rank 150, ADP 133
- Andy Dalton
- Rank 135, ADP 125
- Jameis Winston
- Rank 148, ADP 123

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.
