While this draft by Piglets army didn't exactly set the world on fire, it didn't destroy their playoff aspirations either. They are expected to be in the mix for a playoff spot with a projected seventh-place finish in Suicide Squad League at 6-7-0 (1,511 points). They went after quarterbacks early, using two of their first four picks to grab Teddy Bridgewater (third round) and Russell Wilson (fourth round). They have the best TE combo in the league, as they added Rob Gronkowski and Jordan Reed.

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.
