When a bottom-half draft slot yields top-half results, that's the sign of a strong effort by the GM. Such was the case with Big Wig's Boss Team, which flipped its seventh overall pick into a projected third-place finish in Yahoo Public 875884 League (9-5-0, 1,329 points). With five WRs on the roster, Big Wig's Boss Team guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 138, their WRs projected average of 131 points this season is not much different than the rest of the wideout groups in the league. They have the most prolific TE duo in the league, as they added Jimmy Graham and Heath Miller.
Ever wonder what exactly was inside the brief case in Pulp Fiction? Big Wig's Boss Team should use Week 10 to solve the mystery, since they certainly won't be winning. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a weaker-than-average slate. Big Wig's Boss Team has the opportunity to close with a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
A Pair of Strengths
Big Wig's Boss Team has two positional units projected to be better than the league average, TE and DEF.
On the Rise
Big Wig's Boss Team hopes to break through this season, led by four players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
Big Wig's Boss Team must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 9, both Mason Crosby and Robbie Gould will be on bye.
This is the American version, folks. Big Wig's Boss Team elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.
A Pair of Proven Winners
Big Wig's Boss Team has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Jimmy Graham and DeSean Jackson) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
You Snooze, You Lose
While the rest of the league slept on Kelvin Benjamin, Big Wig's Boss Team pounced on him at pick No. 127.
A Return to Huge Numbers
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 1, Pick 7
Sean Payton's return to the Saints' sideline seemed to work out for Jimmy Graham, who was owned on more championship rosters across Yahoo! than any other TE.
An All-Purpose Stat-Stuffer
- Montee Ball, RB
- Round 2, Pick 14
Montee Ball is projected to finish eighth in the league with 1,454 total yards (1,030 rushing, 424 receiving).
Earning His Keep
- Alfred Morris, RB
- Round 3, Pick 27
Alfred Morris is expected to finish sixth in the NFL with 8.8 rushing TDs and fifth with 1,145 rushing yards.
Basic Math is Optional
- R. Griffin III, QB
- Round 6, Pick 54
Michael Vick once claimed "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 584 projected rushing yards, Robert Griffin III can channel his inner Vick to help Big Wig's Boss Team this year.
A Bit of a Reach
- T. Williams, WR
- Round 7, Pick 67
Big Wig's Boss Team went out on a limb with their seventh-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Terrance Williams has an ADP of 78.5, but he was grabbed at pick No. 67. Patience is a virtue, Big Wig's Boss Team.
There are four positions that Big Wig's Boss Team could look to improve, including QB and WR, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Carson Palmer
- Rank 138, ADP 136
- Josh McCown
- Rank 145, ADP 133
- Tavon Austin
- Rank 121, ADP 131
- Kenny Stills
- Rank 129, ADP 131

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.
