All that time spent doing fantasy football research instead of actual work wasn't a waste of time after all, as Majestic unicorns is projected to finish in first place in Dominance League with a record of 13-1-0 (1,565 points). They didn't target any one position early, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (1st overall), RB Frank Gore (32nd), WR Calvin Johnson (16th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (17th) within the first five rounds. They ended up with the best TE pair in the league, as they added Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett.
Majestic unicorns should do pretty much anything other than watch football during Week 10. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the least difficult slate. In addition to having the easiest overall schedule, Majestic unicorns also has the second-easiest first four games of the season.

Green Bay Packers Fan?
Majestic unicorns is a believer in the hopes of the Green Bay Packers this season, grabbing a couple of players on that team sooner than their ADPs might suggest.

Philip Rivers is one of the most dynamic NFL QBs. Projections have him ranking fifth in plays over 40 yards with 11.1 and TDs over 40 yards with 4.3.
Earning His Keep
Philip Rivers is projected to finish seventh in the NFL in passing TDs with 29.2 and fifth in passing yards with 4,507.
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 1, Pick 1
Despite attempting 32.5 passes per game (just 22nd in the league), Rodgers threw for the seventh-most yards (4,381) and third-most TDs (38) last season. A whopping 33 QBs tossed more interceptions than Rodgers' five.
The Power of Persuasion
- Calvin Johnson, WR
- Round 2, Pick 16
Now would be a reasonable time for Majestic unicorns to encourage the Dominance League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Calvin Johnson and his 89 projected catches (ranked seventh in the NFL).
Better Lucky Than Good?
- Rob Gronkowski, TE
- Round 3, Pick 17
The rest of Dominance League overlooked a gem, and Majestic unicorns made the highest value pick of the round by taking Rob Gronkowski.
How Rebellious of You
- Frank Gore, RB
- Round 4, Pick 32
Majestic unicorns said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (Frank Gore).
The Heist Is On
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 5, Pick 33
The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Majestic unicorns got a steal in snatching LeSean McCoy in the fifth round (33rd overall pick vs. ADP of 19.6).

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.
