Team Snuggles delivered a solid draft performance, taking the second overall draft slot and turning it into a team with playoff potential. With an expected record of 9-5-0 (1,725 points), they're projected to finish second in Fat Kids Wrestling Club League. With five WRs on the roster, Team Snuggles guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 156, their WRs projected average of 159 points this season is not much different than the rest of the wideout groups in the league. They built the highest-scoring QB duo in the league, as they added Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck.
Team Snuggles can chalk up Week 10 as a loss. They have nine players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the easiest slates. Along with the second-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Team Snuggles.
Maybe You Should Add Tony Gonzalez While You're At It
Team Snuggles must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 10, both Rob Gronkowski and Kyle Rudolph will be on bye.
Up and Comers
Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and Team Snuggles may have done just that, with four players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.
"It's Not Whether You Get Knocked Down, It's Whether You Get Up"
After drafting the fewest projected points in the league over the draft's first half, Team Snuggles accumulated the most during the second half. Vince Lombardi would be proud.
Punting Your Kicking Stats in Week 10?
Team Snuggles must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 10, both Zach Hocker and Adam Vinatieri will be on bye.
While the bottom half of the Team Snuggles roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 6).
Putting Their Best Foot Forward
Team Snuggles knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.
Fantasy is Better Than Reality
- Peyton Manning, QB
- Round 1, Pick 2
Even though he fell short in Super Bowl 48, Peyton Manning was more likely to be owned on a 2013 Yahoo! championship roster than any other QB.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- Montee Ball, RB
- Round 2, Pick 11
Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Montee Ball had less value than any other pick of the round.
182 Excuses to Cheer for A.J. Green
- A.J. Green, WR
- Round 3, Pick 14
Green ranks sixth in the Fat Kids Wrestling Club League among wideouts with 182 projected fantasy points.
Stolen In Broad Daylight
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 4, Pick 23
Antonio Brown was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.
A Stretch of the Imagination
- Zach Hocker, K
- Round 5, Pick 26
Grabbing Zach Hocker at pick 26 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Hocker is owned on just a handful of teams across all Yahoo! leagues.
Team Snuggles has a couple positions they may look to upgrade (K and RB), but K is the area they'll want to focus their attention first.
- Mason Crosby
- Rank 207, ADP 99
- Dan Bailey
- Rank 209, ADP 103
- Nick Novak
- Rank 212, ADP 123
- Dan Carpenter
- Rank 223, ADP 128

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.
