    With a Projected Finish of Fourth, Kale's Glorious Team Isn't Anything to Fear

    Draft Summary

    Andy Dufresne once said that "Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies." Sadly, hope might be the only thing that Kale's Glorious Team can cling to as their playoff aspirations are dwindling quickly. They picked sixth overall in Fat Kids Wrestling Club League and are forecasted to finish fourth with a record of 7-7-0 (1,633 points). They aimed for having a roster with balance throughout, taking QB Aaron Rodgers (19th overall), RBs Marshawn Lynch (7th) and DeMarco Murray (18th), and WRs Demaryius Thomas (6th) and Roddy White (30th). They have the bottom group of RBs in the league, as they have Murray, Lynch, Ben Tate, and Joique Bell on their team.

    Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

    Schedule

    Week 9 might not be the highest scoring week for Kale's Glorious Team, as their top two projected scorers (Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford) will have a bye week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a tougher-than-average slate. Along with having the second-most grueling overall schedule, Kale's Glorious Team also has the league's toughest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

      Kale's Glorious Team grabbed a couple of QBs (Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford) that'll both be on bye in Week 9, and will be looking for a signal-caller. You can call Brett, but texting him isn't exactly recommended.

    • A Pair of Strengths

      Kale's Glorious Team has two positional units projected to be better than the league average, QB and WR.

    • Losing Focus

      Kale's Glorious Team must have had to leave their draft party early. After tallying the most projected points in the league over the draft's first half, they managed the fewest during the second half.

    • Up and Comers

      Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and Kale's Glorious Team may have done just that, with four players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.

    • Drink Plenty of Milk

      With an average of 7 years of NFL experience, Kale's Glorious Team has the greatest chance of losing a player to osteoporosis.

    • You Almost Got It Right

      The top half of the Kale's Glorious Team roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1). The bottom of the roster, unfortunately, is rated as the league's weakest.

    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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
