Look, Ben There Raped That, not everyone achieves the "above" in "above average," it has to be earned. Just be happy being an average GM, and maybe with a little hard work and a better draft next season, your team will reach that milestone. Ben There Raped That didn't kill their playoff aspirations with this draft, but they'll have to do some extra work to get there. For now, they're projected to finish in seventh-place in McFantasy League at 6-7-0 (1,600 points). They obviously understand how important the running back position is in fantasy football. They used three of their first five picks on RBs Le'Veon Bell (first round), Justin Forsett (third round), and Melvin Gordon (fifth round). They ended up with one of the bottom pairs of WRs in the league, as they have Calvin Johnson and DeSean Jackson on the team.
Week 9 might require some waiver-wire magic from Ben There Raped That. 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. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Ben There Raped That.

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.
