Corresponding with a solid draft slot (third overall), Libby's Legit Team had a stellar showing. With a mark of 11-3-0 (1,777 points), they're projected to finish first in Fat Kids Wrestling Club League. They loaded up on pass-catching weapons early on, using four of their first seven selections to acquire WRs Dez Bryant (third round), Jordy Nelson (fourth round), Vincent Jackson (sixth round), and Larry Fitzgerald (seventh round). They landed the top TE tandem in the league, as they added Jimmy Graham and Greg Olsen.
Libby's Legit Team can chalk up Week 4 as a loss. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the softest slate. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, Libby's Legit Team also has the league's easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.
The coach of Libby's Legit Team might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted QB (Tom Brady) and second-drafted QB (Nick Foles) have very similar seasonal point projections.
Libby's Legit Team minimized risk by choosing seven consistent players among their 16 picks.
Team of Champions

Defense Wins Championships?
Libby's Legit Team chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
He Can Catch, Too
Shane Vereen is a dual-threat back, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks first among RBs in projected receiving yards with 596.
TDs Like a Boss
Although he ranks outside the top-20 in projected passing yards (21st with 3,953), Nick Foles is expected to land fifth in the NFL in TD passes with 30.2.
Does LeSean McCoy Enjoy Fajitas?

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.
