    Led by a Talented WR Corps, oscar f's Big'O'team Is a Team to Keep an Eye On

    Draft Summary

    Picking sixth, oscar f's Big'O'team put together a team that is expected to finish the season in a favorable spot. There's something to be said for a GM who flipped a bottom of the barrel pick into a projected fourth-place finish in Yahoo Public 853570 League (9-5-0, 1,326 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Calvin Johnson (first round), Brandon Marshall (second round), and Vincent Jackson (fourth round). oscar f's Big'O'team will rely heavily on this group, as they are the best group 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??

    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.
