With the second overall pick, Bobby's Team put on a show for the competition. Drafting a complete team capable of winning week in and week out, they're projected to finish second in Yahoo Public 821267 League with a record of 10-4-0 (1,386 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Julio Jones (third round), Larry Fitzgerald (fourth round), and Wes Welker (fifth round). They built the top RB tandem in the league, as they added Jamaal Charles and Andre Ellington.
Bobby's Team should just disappear for a while during Week 4. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have an easier-than-average slate. Corresponding with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, Bobby's Team also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Does Jamaal Charles Enjoy Fajitas?

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.
